SUMMARY:Chris Lutsko (Bristol) - Farey sequences for Thin Groups.

DESCRIPTION:Join us for this research seminar\, part of the Number Theory
Seminar Series. \n\nAbstract : The study of thin groups has become a ho
t topic at the centre of a great deal of modern research. Recently the m
easure theory on infinite hyperbolic groups has opened these groups up t
o the techniques of homogeneous dynamics. In this talk I will give a ske
tchy survey of this development and then explain a recent result about t
he local statistics of orbits by these groups and the connection to loca
l statistics of some sequences of numbers. If there is time I will expla
in the connections between these theorems\, Diophantine approximation on
fractals\, Ford packings\, and continued fractions.
