Title:Everything you wanted to know about 2x2 matrices
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Svetlana Katok, Penn State
Abstract:
The group SL(2,R) is at the junction of number theory, representation theory, topology, geometry and dynamics. This seemingly simple object is both a source of deep questions and a proving ground for a variety of methods. We will reveal some surprising connections between arithmetic, geometry and dynamics that arise from the study of this interesting group.
