Course description:

The theory of Discrete subgroups of Lie groups is related to different subjects of mathematics such as number theory, representation theory and homogeneous dynamics. The contents of the course contain basic concepts and properties related to lattice, Borel density theorem, arithmetic lattice in semisimple Lie groups.

 

Prerequisite:

Basic measure theory, concepts of Lie groups and Lie algebras, basic knowledge about Zariski topology
