Dimensions of Cantor sets and Diophantine approximation

There are two recent cases where a specific knowledge of the dimension of certain Cantor set in the unit interval has had applications to problems in the Diophantine approximation. The first is on estimates by Matheus and Moriera on the size of the difference between the Lagrange and Markoff spectra, and the second is on the work of Bourgain-Kontorovich and Huang on the Zaremba conjecture. We will talk about these problems and, in particular, about the progress that has been made in estimating the dimension of such dynamically defined Cantor sets.

Why Euclidean domains are both easier and harder than you think

We give a gentle introduction to the proof that there is a Euclidean domain with no multiplicative norm.
