Spectral Gaps, Dynamic Maps, Groups convex and co-compact

Hadrian Quan (UIUC)

Abstract: What do limit sets of group actions, solutions of the linear wave equation, and zeta functions all have in common? They’ll all appear in this talk in surprising ways. By the end of the talk I hope to convince you that their relation is more than surface-deep. This will be an introductory talk, with lots of pictures and examples and little assumed beyond knowledge of the fundamental group of a surface.
