RTG Seminar on Geometry, Dynamics and Topology

Date:  Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Location:  3866 East Hall (4:00 PM to 5:30 AM)

Title:  Introduction to Patterson-Sullivan theory (for hyperbolic surfaces) (part 2)

Abstract:   Continuing from the previous talk, we recall the definition of shadows, and prove the Sullivan shadow lemma. We then get asymptotics (up to multiplicative constants) for the counting function for convex cocompact groups. Finally, we will define the Bowen-Margulis measure for the geodesic flow and talk about its mixing properties.
