Dynamics Seminar: Nattalie Tamam "Diagonalizable groups with non-obvious divergent trajectories"

Singular vectors are the ones for which Dirichlet’s theorem can be infinitely improved. For example, any rational vector is singular. The sequence of approximations for any rational vector q is 'obvious'; the tail of this sequence contains only q. In dimension one, the rational numbers are the only singulars. However, in higher dimensions there are additional singular vectors. By Dani's correspondence, the singular vectors are related to divergent trajectories in Homogeneous dynamical systems. A corresponding 'obvious' divergent trajectories can also be defined. We will discuss the existence of non-obvious divergent trajectories for the actions of diagonalizable groups and their relation to Diophantine properties.
