SUMMARY:Alex Furman (UIC) - About the phenomena of Super-rigidity and Arithmeticity of locally symmetric manifolds
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: The goal of this talk is to discuss the phenomenon of\n\nsuper-rigidity of representations of lattices in certain Lie groups and\n\nhow this remarkable phenomenon shows the arithmetic nature of such\n\nlattices. We will also discuss the purely group-theoretic notion of\n\ncommensurability and its relevance to the question of arithmeticity.\n\nThese wonderful ideas and results are due to Margulis in the late 70s\n\nand mid 80s, but for super-rigidity we will follow a more recent\n\napproach that we developed with Uri Bader, that is used in the work of\n\nBader-Fisher-Miller-Stover.
