# Colloquium Zabrodsky lecture 1: Paul Seidel (MIT)- The symplectic topologist as a dynamicist

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

The development of symplectic topology was motivated by Hamiltonian mechanics. It has been particularly successful in addressing one specific aspect, namely fixed points and periodic points of discrete-time Hamiltonian systems. I will explain how such applications work, both in older and more recent examples.

# Colloquium Dvoretzky lecture: Sylvia Serfaty (NYU): Systems of points with Coulomb interactions

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

**Title:**Systems of points with Coulomb interactions

**Abstract:**Large ensembles of points with Coulomb interactions arise in various settings of condensed matter physics, classical and quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, random matrices and even approximation theory, and they give rise to a variety of questions pertaining to analysis, Partial Differential Equations and probability.

# Groups and Dynamics seminar: Asaf Katz (Chicago) - An application of Margulis' inequality to effective equidistribution.

11:30am to 12:45pm

Abstract: Ratner's celebrated equidistribution theorem states that the trajectory of any point in a homogeneous space under a unipotent flow is getting equidistributed with respect to some algebraic measure. In the case where the action is horospherical, one can deduce an effective equidistribution result by mixing methods, an idea that goes back to Margulis' thesis.

**Simplicity and universality**

Fixing a complete first order theory T, countable for transparency, we had known quite well for which cardinals T has a saturated model. This depends on T of course - mainly of

whether it is stable/super-stable. But the older, precursor notion of having

a universal notion lead us to more complicated answer, quite partial so far, e.g

the strict order property and even SOP_4 lead to having "few cardinals"

(a case of GCH almost holds near the cardinal). Note that eg GCH gives a complete

# Dynamics and probability: David Jerison (MIT) - Localization of eigenfunctions via an effective potential

2:00pm to 3:00pm

## Location:

Ross 70

We discuss joint work with Douglas Arnold, Guy David, Marcel Filoche and Svitlana Mayboroda.

Consider for the operator $L = -\Delta + V$ with periodic boundary conditions, and more

generally on the manifold with or without boundary. Anderson localization, a significant feature

of semiconductor physics, says that the eigenfunctions of $L$ are exponentially localized with

high probability for many classes of random potentials $V$. Filoche and Mayboroda introduced the

# Basic Notions: Hillel Furstenberg (HUJI) : "Affine (Convex) representations and harmonic functions on symmetric spaces." Part 2

4:00pm to 5:15pm

## Location:

Ross 70

Classical group representation theory deals with group actions on linear spaces; we consider group actions on compact convex spaces, preserving topological and convex structure. We focus on irreducible actions, and show that for a large class of groups - including connected Lie groups - these can be determined. There is a close connection between this and the theory of bounded harmonic functions on symmetric spaces and their boundary values.
