Title:  Upgrading ergodicity to mixing

Abstract:   When studying dynamical systems, one is often interested in proving strong chaotic properties about a dynamical system like ergodicity, and mixing. Ergodicity, being the weaker property, is usually easier to prove. However, under certain conditions, we can upgrade ergodicity to mixing using a seemingly unrelated result from representation theory, the Howe-Moore theorem. In this talk, we will see how this is done, and also give a proof of the Howe-Moore theorem.
