Title: Recent progress on Quantum Unique Ergodicity
Speaker: Professor Kannan Soundararajan
Speaker Info: Stanford
Brief Description:
Special Note:

An important special case of the QUE conjecture of Rudnick and Sarnak asserts that Maass cusp forms for SL_2(Z)\H become equidistributed on the fundamental domain, as the eigenvalue goes to infinity. An analogous conjecture can be formulated for holomorphic Hecke eigenforms of large weight. I'll discuss recent work that has led to a resolution of these conjectures.
