Title:Applications of algebraic $K$-theory to rigidity problems in dynamics: An overview
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Anatole Katok, Penn State
Remarkable Ph. D. thesis of Zhenqi Wang constitutes a major new progress in the direction started in the joint work of 2004 Ph.D. Danijela Damjanovic and the present speaker. Wang had a chance to speak at the seminar last week but clearly the audience had difficulties following due to both complexities of the subject and lack of experience of the speaker. This talk with attempt to present the setting and the background for the problem describe the general method in sufficient detail and clearly explain what is the novelty of Wang's work. The audience will have another chance to hear Wang at the Dynamical Systems and related topics workshop on Saturday October 31.
