Workshop on Super Strong Approximation in Groups

Workshop for graduate students and post-docs

Workshop website

The goal of the workshop is to study the proof of super-strong approximation via the Bourgain-Gamburd expansion machine, the classification of approximate subgroups of semisimple algebraic groups over finite fields, and random matrix products. The plan is to follow the paper Approximate subgroups and super-strong approximation  by Emmanuel Breuillard.  The talks will be given by graduate students and post-docs. Some funding is available to support accommodation inside the Hebrew University (Givat Ram campus). Registration is required.
