# Colloquium: Uri Shapira (Technion) - Dynamics on hybrid homogeneous spaces

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

Abstract: I will discuss a collection of results about lattices and their subgroups in Euclidean space which are obtained using dynamics on homogeneous spaces. The ergodic theory of group actions on spaces obtained by quotienning a Lie group by a lattice (spaces of lattice-type) or on projective spaces are extensively studied and display distinct dynamical phenomena. Motivated by classical questions in Diophantine approximation we are led to study the ergodic theory of group actions on hybrid homogeneous spaces which are half projective and half of lattice type.
