"An Introduction to Abstract Dynamics II"
Abstract: Introduced as discrete time analogues of geodesic flows on Riemann manifolds of negative sectional curvature, Anosov diffeomorphisms constitute arguably the most quintessential object of abstract dynamics.It has been long conjectured that Anosov diffeomorphisms can occur only on highly specific and algebraically homogeneous spaces, the so called infranilmanifolds. The speaker will present a basic introduction and delineate his own recent research.
