April 28  Davoud Cheraghi Combinatorial rigidity for some infinitely renormalizable unicritical polynomials I will explain a proof of combinatorial rigidity for some class of infinitely renormalizable unicritical polynomials, by assuming a priori bounds for the class. 
April 21  Trevor Clark Dimensions in holomorphic dynamics I will discuss a few notions of dimension that arise in the study of Julia sets and describe some of the cases where they coincide. 
April 7  Mark Braverman Computability of Julia Sets 
March 24  Jacopo De Simoi (University of Maryland) Hierarchical models and Complex Dynamics Joint work with Prof. Stefano Marmi, SNS, Pisa Abstract: Following an observation made more than 20 years ago by Derrida, De Seze & Itzykson we show that it is possible to get from a map (decoration) acting on the space of hypergraphs to a rational map acting on a proper complex manifold that turns out to be a complex multiprojective space of suitable (multi)dimension. We will show some relationships between the decoration map and dynamical properties of the related rational map such as algebraic stability, distribution of indetermination set. We will focus on examples as general statements are still lacking the proper sharpness.
