Dynamics Lunch: Nishant Chandgotia "Generic properties of Lebesgue measure preserving transformations of the 2-torus."

Abstract: In this talk we will discuss some recent work by Guihéneuf and Lefeuvre who prove that shadowing is generic for Lebesgue measure preserving transformations of the 2-torus. We will spend most of our time motivating the problem, discussing the history of such questions- specifically touching upon earlier work of Oxtoby, Ulam, Alpern and Prasad and some general techniques used in the area. Time permitting, we will discuss the recent proof given by Guihéneuf and Lefeuvre.
