The Symposium will be centered on the work of Elon Lindenstrauss (Fields Medal 2010), and its current and potential impact. Number theory, dynamics, and geometry have had increasingly powerful interactions in recent years, with measure rigidity at the core. The goals of the Symposium are to bring this area to a broader audience, and also to present recent developments in homogeneous dynamics, rigidity, and quantum ergodicity that are related to the work of Lindenstrauss.
The scientific program is aimed at a wide audience, including graduate students, mathematicians in other research areas, and scientists who use mathematics in an important way.
The Symposium will feature a public opening with lectures by Elon Lindenstrauss and Peter Sarnak, as well as a special program for high-school and undergraduate students. All events will be broadcast live online.
