Title:Equidistribution and Counting for Polygonal Billiards
Seminar:Job Candidate Talk
Speaker:Jayadev Athreya
Abstract:
We will survey some results on equidistribution and counting for billiards in Euclidean polygons. These results are united by the the fact they use the geometry and dynamics of the SL(2, R) action on the moduli space of holomorphic (and sometimes meromorphic) quadratic differentials on Riemann surfaces, which serves as a renormalization system for billiards. This talk will include joint work with G. Forni, joint work with J. Chaika and S. Lelievre, and joint work with A. Eskin and A. Zorich.
