Pure Maths Colloquium: Diophantine Approximation and Dynamics

Presented by Alexander Gorodnik, University of Bristol

21 January 2013 16:00 in CM221

The classical theory of Diophantine approximation seeks
to quantify density of the set of rational vectors in the Euclidean space.
In this talk we will discuss several conjectures and results regarding
quantitative density of the set of rational points on algebraic varieties.
In the case when a variety has a group structure, we explain how
to approach this problem using dynamical systems techniques.
