Hairs and coding for exponential mapsI want to talk about properties of certain set occurring naturally in the dynamics of the exponential map \lambda e^z. I will talk about some topological properties and the Hausdorff dimension of hairs and other more general subsets. This will be done both in the standard case and for the nonautonomous dynamics (\lambda changing at every step).

BuffChéritat construction of quadratic Julia sets of positive measure  PART II: Key lemma for the Cremer caseIn this talk I will sketch the proof of the key lemma for the construction of quadratic Cremer Julia sets of positive measure. Roughly speaking, this lemma states that for an appropriate angle a of bounded type one can find a sequence of angles a_n of bounded type convergent to a so that 1) the corresponding Siegel maps exp(2piia_n)z+z^2 have cycles converging to zero, 2) the corresponding Siegel disks are not much smaller then the Siegel disk of exp(2piia)z+z^2.

BuffChéritat construction of quadratic Julia sets of positive measure  PART I: Outline of the constructionIn this minicourse I will explain the celebrated examples of quadratic Julia sets of positive aree constructed by Xavier Buff and Arnaud Chéritat. These examples are of three types: with Cremer fixed point, with Siegel fixed point, and infinitely satellite renormalizable maps. In the first talk I will present the key ingredients and make an outline of the constructions and the proofs.

On Cremer Julia setsIn this talk I will review classical properties of Cremer Julia sets, such as local nonconnectivity and existence of hedgehogs, and sketch some proofs.

A transcendental Julia set of dimension 1  PART III: Other properties and modificationsIn the last talk of this series, we will review some of the other properties of the function constructed by Bishop whose Julia set has Hausdorff dimension 1, such as that it has order 0 or that the packing dimension of the Julia set is 1. It is a wellknown fact that the packing dimension is greater or equal than the Hausdorff dimension. We will also sketch the modification of this construction by Jack Burkart, to obtain functions whose packing dimension forms a dense subset of the interval (1,2). In these examples, the Hausdorff dimension and the packing dimension can be chosen to be arbitrarily close.

A transcendental Julia set of dimension 1  PART II: Main ideas of the proofThis miniseries of seminars aims to study Bishop's example of a transcendental entire function f whose Julia set J(f) has Hausdorff dimension one. In the previous session, historical context of the result, as well as an overview on how the function f is constructed, was given. In this talk, I will provide more details on the dynamics of f, as well as comment on the main ideas of the proof of the result that ensure the Hausdorff dimension of J(f) to be one.

A transcendental Julia set of dimension 1  PART I: IntroductionAbstract: Baker proved that for transcendental entire functions, the Julia set always has dimension greater than or equal to one. Stallard was able to produce functions in the EremenkoLyubich class whose Julia set has any Hausdorff dimension strictly greater than one and less or equal to two. In fact, she also proved that in that class, the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set is strictly larger than one. Recently, Bishop constructed the first example of a transcendental entire function whose Julia set has Hausdorff dimension equals one. This function is given as an infinite product and has a multiply connected wandering domain. The goal of this seminar series is to give a detailed proof of Bishop's result. In this first talk, we will start by introducing the main definitions and give a rough sketch of the proof.

Dimension in transcendental dynamics  PART III: The EremenkoLyubich classAbstract: The EremenkoLyubich class B consists of the transcendental entire functions for which the set of singular values is bounded, and for such maps the escaping set is contained in the Julia set. On 2005, Rippon and Stallard proved that for functions in this class, both the escaping set and the Julia set have packing dimension equal to 2. On 1996, Stallard proved that the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set is strictly greater than 1 in class B, while on 2010, together with Rempe, they constructed a function for which the escaping set has Hausdorff dimension equal to 1. If we further assume that the function has finite order, then Baranski and Schubert proved independently that the Hausdorff dimension of the escaping set (and hence also the Julia set) equals 2. We will give an overview of what is known about dimension in class B.

Dimension in transcendental dynamics  PART II: The exponential familyAbstract: We will study the exponential family, given by $E_\lambda(z)=\lambda \exp z$, for $\lambda\in\mathbb{C}\setminus\{0\}$. On 1987, McMullen proved that the Julia set (as well as the escaping set) of such functions always has Hausdorff dimension two. For $0<\lambda<1/e$, the Julia set of $E_\lambda$ consists of an uncountable union of curves known as a Cantor bouquet. On 1999, Karpińska proved that the set of endpoints of such curves has Hausdorff dimension two, but the curves without the endpoints have Hausdorff dimension one. Nowadays, this is known as Karpińska's paradox. On 2003, Urbański and Zdunik showed that the set of nonescaping endpoints have Hausdorff dimension less than two, hence concluding that the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set sits on the set of escaping endpoints for such functions.

Dimension in transcendental dynamics  PART I: Introduction to fractal dimensionAbstract: In this talk, we will review the main notions of fractal dimension, including the packing dimension, the box dimension and the Hausdorff dimension of a set. We will prove their basic properties and give some examples of sets for which it is possible to compute the dimension explicitly.

The thermodynamic approach to the Hausdorff dimension: old and newAbstract: In 2001, Jenkinson and Pollicott proposed an efficient algorithm for estimating the Hausdorff dimension of dynamically defined sets based on thermodynamic formalism. The algorithm came with error estimates, but the amount of computer time required to obtain rigourous results was more than the age of the universe. Recently we managed to improve the error bounds, which now allow to obtain rigourous results keeping the computational time under 24 hours. I am planning to discuss the essential ingredients for the method to work in particular settings of the (hyperbolic) Julia sets.

On Lebesgue measure of the Feigenbaum Julia set  PART IIAbstract: In this lecture I will briefly remind the key definitions and statements from the first lecture and give a sketch of the proof of the main result: the Julia set of the Feigenbaum map has Hausdorff dimension less than two.

On Lebesgue measure of the Feigenbaum Julia set  PART IAbstract: In this minicourse I will give a detailed exposition of the proof of the following result: the Julia set of the Feigenbaum map has Hausdorff dimension less than two and therefore has zero Lebesgue measure (joint work with S. Sutherland).
