Dynamical Systems Seminar

Title: Ito's flows, adic flows, and horocycle flows (joint with M. Schmoll)
Speaker: Omri Sarig
Speaker Info: Weizmann Institute
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We give a new construction of Shunji Ito’s “transversal flow for a subshift of finite type”, along the lines of Vershik’s construction of an adic transformation. We then show how these flows arise naturally in the symbolic coding of horocycle flows on non-compact hyperbolic surfaces with finite area.
