A workshop in  Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems to be held at the Department of Mathematics UNC Chapel Hill on

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday April 20- 23, 2017.

The Keynote/Colloquium speaker is Professor Elon Lindenstraus   (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) .

The workshop starts on Thursday April 20  at 4:00 pm (refreshments at 3:30 pm) with a keynote talk to be given by Prof. Lindenstraus.

Title : Joining of higher rank homogenous actions

(j\w M. Einsidler)
Higher rank homogeneous actions display subtle rigidity properties that are not yet well understood. One situation where the state of knowledge seems to be quite satisfactory is regarding joinings of higher rank diagonalizable actions on quotients of semisimple groups.
This situation appears quite naturally in applications, and I will survey a few of these, including a result of Aka, Einsiedler and Shapira regarding the joint distribution of points on a sphere and the shape of its perpendicular lattice.

The workshop  ends on Sunday April 23, 2017.


Younger researchers are encouraged to participate.

The  workshop is supported  by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the National Science Foundation
