Dynamics & probability: Lucia Simonelli - Absolutely Continuous Spectrum for Parabolic Flows/Maps

This talk will discuss some recent developments in the study of the spectral properties of parabolic flows and maps. More specifically, it will focus on the techniques used to determine the spectrum of the time-changes of the horocycle flow and and the effort to generalize these methods to create conditions under which a general parabolic flow/map would be expected to have absolutely continuous spectrum.
