Abstract: The Bernoulli convolution with parameter 1/2 < t < 1 is the distribution of the random variable (+/-)t + (+/-)t^2 + (+/-)t^3 + ..., where the sequence of signs +/- form an  unbiased i.i.d. random sequence. This distribution has been studied since the 1930s, and the main problem is to characterize those parameters t for which the distribution is absolutely continuous, or has full dimension. In these talks I will review the history and recent developments, leading up to P. Varju's proof a little over a year ago, that for all transcendental parameters the dimension is 1.

Title: The endoscopic fundamental lemma for unitary symmetric spaces
Abstract: Motivated by the study of certain cycles in locally symmetric
spaces and periods of automorphic forms on unitary groups, I propose a
theory of endoscopy for certain symmetric spaces. The main result is the
fundamental lemma for the unit function. After explaining where the
fundamental lemma fits into this broader picture, I will describe its
proof.

Dynamics Seminar: Matan Seidel (TAU): "Random Walks on Circle Packings"

2:00pm to 3:00pm

Abstract: A circle packing is a canonical way of representing a planar graph. There is a deep connection between the geometry of the circle packing and the proababilistic property of recurrence/transience of the simple random walk on the underlying graph, as shown in the famous He-Schramm Theorem. The removal of one of the Theorem's assumptions - that of bounded degrees - can cause the theorem to fail. However, by using certain natural weights that arise from the circle packing for a weighted random walk, (at least) one of the directions of the He-Schramm Theorem remains true.

Set Theory E-Seminar: Jing Zhang (BIU) - Transformations of the transfinite plane

11:00am to 1:00pm

E-seminar Zoom meeting ID 243-676-331

Joint E-seminar of Bar-Ilan University and the Hebrew University


Title: Transformations of the transfinite plane

Abstract: We discuss the existence of certain transformation functions turning pairs of ordinals into triples (or pairs) of ordinals, that allows reductions of complicated Ramsey theoretic problems into simpler ones. We will focus on the existence of various kinds of strong colorings. The basic technique is Todorcevic's walks on ordinals. Joint work with Assaf Rinot.
