Dynamics, measures and dimensions

07.04.2019 - 12.04.2019 | Będlewo

The conference is going to be a meeting of mathematicians working in a wide area of dynamical systems on the border of ergodic theory and holomorphic dynamics. In particular, thermodynamical formalism and existence of equilibrium measures is used to understand local structure of the underlying space via expanding dynamics magnifying small pieces to a large scale.

The conference aims to continue the tradition of U.S.-Polish collaboration in dynamical systems and neighboring areas, as it will allow the fostering of face-to-face collaborations that might not occur as readily otherwise. Topics will encompass wide but nevertheless intertwined spectrum of fields such as fundamentals of holomorphic dynamics, iteration of transcendental entire and meromorphic functions, fractal sets, iterated function systems, random dynamical systems, infinite ergodic theory and parabolic systems, diophantine approximations and shrinking targets, Kleinian groups and circle packings, open dynamical systems, orbit counting, scenery flow and geometry of measures, topics in holomorphic dynamics in several complex variables, statistical physics, gas lattices, potential theory, number theory and topology.

The conference will also be the opportunity to honour the career of Professor Mariusz Urbański who has made fundamental contributions to all of these topics. The programme of the conference will consist of 50 minute plenary lectures and short talks. The lectures will begin on 8th April (Monday) in the morning and will end on 12th April (Friday) before lunch (around 1 p.m.). 

Before the conference, we will organize a short school for beginners. The minicourses will be given by Mark Pollicott (University of Warwick), Károly Simon (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) and Giulio Tiozzo (University of Toronto). The lectures will start on 6th April (Saturday) in the afternoon. The detailed programme of the school is available here.
