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

2:00pm to 3:00pm

## Location:

Manchester building, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, (Room 209)

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.
