Abstract

The use of dynamical invariants has long been a staple of geometry and topology, from rigidity theorems, to classification theorems, to the general study of lattices and of the mapping class group. More recently, random structures in topology and notions of probabilistic geometric convergence have played a critical role in testing the robustness of conjectures in the arithmetic setting. In this introductory workshop, we will bring together junior and senior researchers in order to provide a mix of introductory lectures as well as reporting on more recent progress in topics from this diverse range of subjects.
