Irrational Quadratic Forms II

JOINT ARITHMETIC HOMOGENEOUS SPACES and COMPUTER SCIENCE/DISCRETE MATH II
Topic:Irrational Quadratic Forms II
Speaker:Gregory Margulis
Affiliation:IAS and Yale University
Date:Tuesday, February 21
Time/Room:10:30am - 12:30pm/S-101

The main purpose of the talk is to describe an approach for the estimate of averages over orbits of certain functions on the space of lattices. These estimates play a crucial role in the study of the distribution of values at integral points of irrational quadratic forms.
