Geometry and Topology Seminar: Geometry of continued fractions

Presented by Oleg Karpenkov, Liverpool

15 February 2018 13:00 in CM221

In this talk we introduce a geometrical model of continued fractions and discuss its appearance in rather distant areas of Mathematics:
-- values of quadratic forms (Perron Identity for Markov spectrum)
-- the 2nd Kepler law on planetary motions
-- Global relation on singularities of toric varieties
