Dynamics seminar: Asaf Katz (Michigan) Measure rigidity theorems in smooth dynamics

Tue, 21/12/202114:00-15:00
Abstract - Classifying the invariant measures for a given dynamical system is a fundamental problem.
In the field of homogeneous dynamics, several important theorems give us an essentially complete picture.

Moving away from homogeneous dynamics - results are scarcer, mainly due to some profound difficulties carrying out the techniques used in homogeneous dynamics.

A recent development in Teichmuller dynamics - the celebrated magic wand theorem of Eskin-Mirzakhani, gives one such example and actually provides a technique - the factorization method - for proving such results in certain systems.

I will explain how one can implement the factorization method of Eskin-Mirzakhani in smooth dynamics, in order to achieve measure classification of u-Gibbs states for non-integrable Anosov actions.
Moreover, I will try to explain some applications of the theorem, such as a pointwise equidistribution theorem for non-integrable systems and a result of Avila-Crovosier-Eskin-Potrie-Wilkinson-Zhang towards Gogolev's conjecture on actions on the 3D torus.
