Title:Low dimensional dynamics with abstract time
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:John Franks, Northwestern University
Abstract:
We consider the dynamics of (non-compact) group actions on surfaces which are conservative and non-chaotic systems (technically with elements having zero topological entropy). A structure theorem for the dynamics of many such elements combined with the much better understood positive entropy case permits us to provide applications to group actions especially in the analytic case and leads to some interesting conjectures. New results represent joint work with Michael Handel.
