Group Representations Ergodic Theory Operator Algebras and Mathematical Physics Book Excerpt:

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute sponsored a three day conference, May 21-23, 1984 to honor Professor George W. Mackey. The title of the conference, Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, Operator Algebras, and Mathematical Physics, reflects the interests in science that have characterized Professor wide ranging Mackey's work. The conference provided an opportunity for his students, friends and colleagues to honor him and his contributions. The conference was attended by over one hundred people and the participants included five mathematical generations Professor Mackey's mathematical father, Marshall Stone, many mathematical children, grandchildren, and at least one mathematical great-grandchild. This volume is a compendium of the scientific papers presented at the conference plus some additional papers contributed after the conference. The far ranging scope of the various articles is a further indication of the large number of fields that have been affected by Professor Mackey's work. Calvin C.

Group Representations Ergodic Theory and Mathematical Physics Book Excerpt:

George Mackey was an extraordinary mathematician of great power and vision. His profound contributions to representation theory, harmonic analysis, ergodic theory, and mathematical physics left a rich legacy for researchers that continues today. This book is based on lectures presented at an AMS special session held in January 2007 in New Orleans dedicated to his memory. The papers, written especially for this volume by internationally-known mathematicians and mathematical physicists, range from expository and historical surveys to original high-level research articles. The influence of Mackey's fundamental ideas is apparent throughout. The introductory article contains recollections from former students, friends, colleagues, and family as well as a biography describing his distinguished career as a mathematician at Harvard, where he held the Landon D. Clay Professorship of Mathematics. Topics examined here include recent results on induced representations, virtual groups, the Mackey Machine and crossed products, representations of Baumslag-Solitar groups, the Radon transform and the heat equation, groupoids in the study of wavelets, and quantum theory. The in-depth historical surveys of Mackey's work on representation theory, ergodic theory, and physics, together with recent developments inspired by his fundamental work will be of considerable interest to both graduate students and researchers alike.

Group Actions in Ergodic Theory Geometry and Topology Book Excerpt:

Robert J. Zimmer is best known in mathematics for the highly influential conjectures and program that bear his name. Group Actions in Ergodic Theory, Geometry, and Topology: Selected Papers brings together some of the most significant writings by Zimmer, which lay out his program and contextualize his work over the course of his career. Zimmer’s body of work is remarkable in that it involves methods from a variety of mathematical disciplines, such as Lie theory, differential geometry, ergodic theory and dynamical systems, arithmetic groups, and topology, and at the same time offers a unifying perspective. After arriving at the University of Chicago in 1977, Zimmer extended his earlier research on ergodic group actions to prove his cocycle superrigidity theorem which proved to be a pivotal point in articulating and developing his program. Zimmer’s ideas opened the door to many others, and they continue to be actively employed in many domains related to group actions in ergodic theory, geometry, and topology. In addition to the selected papers themselves, this volume opens with a foreword by David Fisher, Alexander Lubotzky, and Gregory Margulis, as well as a substantial introductory essay by Zimmer recounting the course of his career in mathematics. The volume closes with an afterword by Fisher on the most recent developments around the Zimmer program.

Representation Theory of Lie Groups Book Excerpt:

This book contains written versions of the lectures given at the PCMI Graduate Summer School on the representation theory of Lie groups. The volume begins with lectures by A. Knapp and P. Trapa outlining the state of the subject around the year 1975, specifically, the fundamental results of Harish-Chandra on the general structure of infinite-dimensional representations and the Langlands classification. Additional contributions outline developments in four of the most active areas of research over the past 20 years. The clearly written articles present results to date, as follows: R. Zierau and L. Barchini discuss the construction of representations on Dolbeault cohomology spaces. D. Vogan describes the status of the Kirillov-Kostant "philosophy of coadjoint orbits" for unitary representations. K. Vilonen presents recent advances in the Beilinson-Bernstein theory of "localization". And Jian-Shu Li covers Howe's theory of "dual reductive pairs". Each contributor to the volume presents the topics in a unique, comprehensive, and accessible manner geared toward advanced graduate students and researchers. Students should have completed the standard introductory graduate courses for full comprehension of the work. The book would also serve well as a supplementary text for a course on introductory infinite-dimensional representation theory. Titles in this series are co-published with the Institute for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute.

Smooth Ergodic Theory and Its Applications Book Excerpt:

During the past decade, there have been several major new developments in smooth ergodic theory, which have attracted substantial interest to the field from mathematicians as well as scientists using dynamics in their work. In spite of the impressive literature, it has been extremely difficult for a student - or even an established mathematician who is not an expert in the area - to acquire a working knowledge of smooth ergodic theory and to learn how to use its tools.Accordingly, the AMS Summer Research Institute on Smooth Ergodic Theory and Its Applications (Seattle, WA) had a strong educational component, including ten mini-courses on various aspects of the topic that were presented by leading experts in the field. This volume presents the proceedings of that conference. Smooth ergodic theory studies the statistical properties of differentiable dynamical systems, whose origin traces back to the seminal works of Poincare and later, many great mathematicians who made contributions to the development of the theory.The main topic of this volume, smooth ergodic theory, especially the theory of nonuniformly hyperbolic systems, provides the principle paradigm for the rigorous study of complicated or chaotic behavior in deterministic systems. This paradigm asserts that if a non-linear dynamical system exhibits sufficiently pronounced exponential behavior, then global properties of the system can be deduced from studying the linearized system. One can then obtain detailed information on topological properties (such as the growth of periodic orbits, topological entropy, and dimension of invariant sets including attractors), as well as statistical properties (such as the existence of invariant measures, asymptotic behavior of typical orbits, ergodicity, mixing, decay of correlations, and measure-theoretic entropy).Smooth ergodic theory also provides a foundation for numerous applications throughout mathematics (e.g., Riemannian geometry, number theory, Lie groups, and partial differential equations), as well as other sciences. This volume serves a two-fold purpose: first, it gives a useful gateway to smooth ergodic theory for students and nonspecialists, and second, it provides a state-of-the-art report on important current aspects of the subject. The book is divided into three parts: lecture notes consisting of three long expositions with proofs aimed to serve as a comprehensive and self-contained introduction to a particular area of smooth ergodic theory; thematic sections based on mini-courses or surveys held at the conference; and original contributions presented at the meeting or closely related to the topics that were discussed there.

Ergodic Theory and Harmonic Analysis Book Excerpt:

Ergodic theory is a field that is stimulating on its own, and also in its interactions with other branches of mathematics and science. In recent years, the interchanges with harmonic analysis have been especially noticeable and productive. This book contains survey papers describing the relationship of ergodic theory with convergence, rigidity theory and the theory of joinings. These papers present the background of each area of interaction, the most outstanding results and promising lines of research. They should form perfect starting points for anyone beginning research in one of these areas. Thirteen related research papers describe the work; several treat questions arising from the Furstenberg multiple recurrence theory, while the remainder deal with convergence and a variety of other topics in dynamics.

Rigidity in Higher Rank Abelian Group Actions Volume 1 Introduction and Cocycle Problem Book Excerpt:

This self-contained monograph presents rigidity theory for a large class of dynamical systems, differentiable higher rank hyperbolic and partially hyperbolic actions. This first volume describes the subject in detail and develops the principal methods presently used in various aspects of the rigidity theory. Part I serves as an exposition and preparation, including a large collection of examples that are difficult to find in the existing literature. Part II focuses on cocycle rigidity, which serves as a model for rigidity phenomena as well as a useful tool for studying them. The book is an ideal reference for applied mathematicians and scientists working in dynamical systems and a useful introduction for graduate students interested in entering the field. Its wealth of examples also makes it excellent supplementary reading for any introductory course in dynamical systems.
