Scientific Overview

In recent years, dynamical properties of group actions have seen many applications to areas as diverse as rational maps, geometry, low dimensional and geometric topology, number theory. Such applications have motivated a rapid development of new tools within the area of dynamical systems, which in turn were used as essential ingrediences in solutions to long-standing open conjectures in seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics. The most recent such application is the solution of the virtual fibred conjecture for closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together leading contributors to these recent developments in the theory of dynamical systems as well as young researchers who are interested in exploring the interplay between different fields from the viewpoint of dynamical systems.
