Description:

 

 

In this course, we will introduce dynamical systems in both continuous and measurable settings. We will present classification programs of dynamics and their relations with geometric group theory and operator algebras. More precisely, we are planning to describe

 

 

1) The work of Lewis Bowen on the classification of Bernoulli shifts over sofic groups using entropy.

 

 

2) Cocycle superrigidity and orbit equivalence superrigidity.

 

 

Prerequisite:

 

 

Measure Theory and Real Analysis.
