Title: Some rational multidimensional maps coming from self-similar groups
Speaker: Rostislav Grigorchuk, Texas A&M University
Location: Math Tower P-131
I will describe a non-standard method of getting multidimensional rational maps using self-similar groups. These maps are very different from the maps in general position and possess interesting properties. Then I will explain why study of dynamical properties of these maps is useful for solving spectral problems related to finite and infinite graphs and to groups. Also the KNS (Kesten-Von Neumann-Serre) spectral measures will be defined and discussed.
