DESCRIPTION:Borys Kuca will be speaking at this research seminar\, part o
f the Dynamical Systems and Analysis seminar series. \n\nAbstract: The
equidistribution theorem of Weyl gives a sufficient and necessary condit
ion for when a sequence equidistributes on the torus. What if we replace
the torus with a higher-degree nilmanifold\, such as Heisenberg nilmani
fold? I will show how the equidistribution theory on nilmanifolds develo
ped by Leibman\, Green and Tao can be applied to the combinatorial probl
em of counting certain polynomial configurations in subsets of finite fi
elds.
