Deadline to Register

Friday March 19, 2021

Invitation Only

Participation is by invitation only. All participants must register.

Organizers:
Laura DeMarco, Harvard University
Mattias Jonsson, University of Michigan

The goal of Simons Symposium on Algebraic, Complex and Arithmetic Dynamics is to formulate a vision for future developments in complex, algebraic, and arithmetic dynamics, with a focus on methods coming from complex dynamics. Organizers aim to take stock of recent developments in complex dynamics, but also explore the important role that complex methods play in questions of more algebraic or arithmetic nature.

Discussion topics include:

  • Recent developments in complex dynamics
  • Critical orbit relations in complex and arithmetic dynamics
  • The role of complex dynamics for questions of arithmetic nature
