Diophantine approximation on group varieties

Introductory Workshop: Geometric and Arithmetic Aspects of Homogeneous Dynamics February 02, 2015 - February 06, 2015

I will discuss the problem of Diophantine approximation on group varieties and outline a strategy to establish analogues of classical results in Diophantine approximation in this setting. Specifically, I will talk about the problem of counting solutions to Diophantine inequalities on group varieties and its connection to spectral gap. This is joint work with Alexander Gorodnik and Amos Nevo.
