Abstract:  Introduced  by D. V. Anosov as  the discrete time analogue   of  geodesic flows  on Riemann manifolds of negative  sectional curvature,  Anosov diffeomorphisms  constitute one of the leitmotivs  of  contemporary abstract dynamics.  It is  conjectured that these  diffeomorphisms occur on very exceptional homogeneous spaces. The  speaker will delineate the basic facts and  briefly mention his  own recent work towards settling this conjecture.
