DESCRIPTION:Title: Central limit theorems for counting measures in coarse negative curvature
\nby Giulio Tiozzo (University of Toronto (Canada)) as part of DinAmic
I: Another Internet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe establish general central li
mit theorems for an action of a group on a hyperbolic space with respect t
o counting for the word length in the group.\nIn 2013\, Chas\, Li\, and Ma
skit produced numerical experiments on random closed geodesics on a hyperb
olic pair of pants. Namely\, they drew uniformly at random conjugacy clas
ses of a given word length\, and considered the hyperbolic length of the
corresponding closed geodesic on the pair of pants. Their experiments l
ead to the conjecture that the length of these closed geodesics satisfies
a central limit theorem\, and we proved this conjecture in 2018. \nIn our
new work\, we remove the assumptions of properness and smoothness of the
space\, or cocompactness of the action\, thus proving a general central li
mit theorem for group actions on hyperbolic spaces. \nWe will see how our
techniques replace the classical thermodynamic formalism and allow us to
provide new applications\, including to lengths of geodesics in geometrica
lly finite manifolds and to intersection numbers with submanifolds.\nJoint
work with I. Gekhtman and S. Taylor.\n\nZoom link:\nhttps://unipd.zoom.us

DESCRIPTION:Title: Some rigidity results for billiards and hyperbolic flows\nby Martin L
eguil (Université Paris-Sud 11 (France)) as part of DinAmicI: Another Int
ernet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn a project with P. Bálint\, J. De Simoi an
d V. Kaloshin\, we have been studying the inverse problem for a class of o
pen dispersing billiards obtained by removing from the plane a finite numb
er of smooth strictly convex scatterers satisfying a non-eclipse condition
. The dynamics of such billiards is hyperbolic (Axiom A)\, and there is a
natural labeling of periodic orbits. We show that it is generically possib
le\, in the analytic category and for billiard tables with two (partial) a
xial symmetries\, to determine completely the geometry of those billiards
from the purely dynamical data encoded in their Marked Length Spectrum (le
ngths of periodic orbits + marking). An important step is the obtention of
asymptotic estimates for the Lyapunov exponents of certain periodic point
s accumulating a reference periodic point\, which turn out to be useful in
the study of other rigidity problems. In particular\, I will explain the
results obtained in a joint work with J. De Simoi\, K. Vinhage and Y. Yang
on the question of entropy rigidity for 3-dimensional Anosov flows and di
spersing billiards.\n\nZoom link: https://unipd.zoom.us/j/98220838792?pwd=

DESCRIPTION:Title: Rational Horocycle lifts and the tails of Quadratic Weyl sums\nby Fra
ncesco Cellarosi (Queen’s University (Canada)) as part of DinAmicI: Anot
her Internet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nEquidistribution of horocycles on hype
rbolic surfaces has been used to dynamically answer several probabilistic
questions about number-theoretical objects. In this talk we focus on horoc
ycle lifts\, i.e. curves on higher-dimensional manifolds whose projection
to the hyperbolic surface is a classical horocycle\, and their behaviour u
nder the action of the geodesic flow. It is known that when such horocycle
lifts are `generic’\, then their push forward via the geodesic flow bec
omes equidistributed in the ambient manifold. We consider certain ‘non-g
eneric’ (i.e. rational) horocycle lifts\, in which case the equidistribu
tion takes place on a sub-manifold. We then use this fact to study the tai
l distribution of quadratic Weyl sums when one of their arguments is rando
m and the other is rational. In this case we obtain random variables with
heavy tails\, all of which only possess moments of order less than 4. Depe
nding on the rational argument\, we establish the exact tail decay\, which
can be described with the help of the Dedekind $\\psi$-function.\n\nJoint

r Internet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider families of skew-product map
s\, representing systems evolving in discrete time in which\, at each time
step\, one of a number of transformations is chosen according to an i.i.d
process and applied. We extend the notion of matching for such dynamical
systems and we show that\, for a certain family of piecewise affine random
maps of the interval\, the property of random matching implies that any i
nvariant density is piecewise constant. We give an application by introduc
ing a one-parameter family of random maps generating signed binary expansi
ons of numbers. This family has random matching for Lebesgue almost every
parameter\, producing matching intervals that are related to the ones obta
ined for the Nakada continued fraction transformations. We use this proper

DESCRIPTION:Title: The topology and geometry of random square-tiled surfaces\nby Sunrose
Shrestha (Tufts University\, USA) as part of DinAmicI: Another Internet S
eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA square-tiled surface (STS) is a branched cover of
the standard square torus with branching over exactly one point. They are
concrete examples of translation surfaces which are an important class of
singular flat metrics on 2-manifolds with applications in Teichmüller the
ory and polygonal billiards. In this talk we will consider a randomizing m
odel for STSs based on permutation pairs and use it to compute the genus d
istribution. We also study holonomy vectors (Euclidean displacement vector
s between cone points) on a random STS. Holonomy vectors of translation su
rfaces provide coordinates on the space of translation surfaces and their
enumeration up to a fixed length has been studied by various authors such
as Eskin and Masur. In this talk\, we obtain finer information about the s
et of holonomy vectors\, Hol(S)\, of a random STS. In particular\, we will
see how often Hol(S) contains the set of primitive integer vectors and fi
nd how often these sets are exactly equal.\n\nZoom link: https://unipd.zoo

tgomery\, Stefan Fleischer and Manuel Quaschner.\n\nThe past and future of
scattering particle systems is partly determined by their asymptotic velo
city\, that is\, the Cesàro limit of the velocity. That this exists for b
ounded interactions and all initial conditions\, is part of a statement so
metimes called ‘asymptotic completeness’. The same statement does not
apply to individual initial conditions in celestial mechanics. However\, a
t least for up to four particles\, nonexistence of asymptotic velocity is
a measure zero phenomenon. We explain some new ideas connected with the pr
oof (Poincaré section techniques for wandering sets\, non-deterministic p
article systems\, and walks on a poset of set partitions).\n\nZoom link: h

DESCRIPTION:Title: Invariance by induction of the asymptotic variance\nby Françoise Pè
ne (Université de Bretagne Occidentale (France)) as part of DinAmicI: Ano
ther Internet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is well known that the integral of
an observable is preserved by induction. We are interested here in extens
ions of this result to moments of order 2 and 3. We have two natural candi
dates for the second and third order moments: the classical asymptotic var
iance (given by the Green-Kubo formula) and an analogous quantity of the t
hird order. This question arises from the proof of CLT. In some cases\, th
e asymptotic variance in the CLT can be expressed on the one hand in terms
of the classical Green-Kubo formula and on the other hand in terms of the
Green-Kubo formula for the induced system. Under general assumptions (inv
olving transfer operators)\, we prove that the asymptotic variance is pres
erved by induction and that the natural third order quantity is preserved
up to an error term.\n\nThis is joint work with Damien Thomine.\n\nzoom li

DESCRIPTION:Title: Chaotic motion in the breathing circle billiard\nby Stefano Marò (U
niversity of Pisa (Italy)) as part of DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the free motion of a point particle inside a cir
cular billiard with periodically moving boundary\, with the assumption tha
t the collisions of the particle with the boundary are elastic so that the
energy of the particle is not preserved. It is known that if the motion o
f the boundary is regular enough then the energy is bounded due to the exi
stence of invariant curves. We show that it is nevertheless possible that
the motion of the particle is chaotic\, also under regularity assumptions
for the moving boundary. More precisely\, we show that there exists a clas
s of functions describing the motion of the boundary for which the billiar
d map admits invariant probability measures with positive metric entropy.
The proof relies on variational techniques based on Aubry-Mather theory. \

DESCRIPTION:Title: Stochastic stability of classical Lorenz flow under impulsive type forci
ng\nby Michele Gianfelice (Università della Calabria (Italy)) as part
of DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nInspired by the prob
lem of modeling the so called anthropogenic forcing in climatology\, e.g.
the effects of the emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere\, we in
troduce a novel type of random perturbation for the classical Lorenz flow
and prove its stochastic stability. The perturbation acts on the system in
an impulsive way\, hence is not of diffusive type. Namely\, given a cross
-section M for the unperturbed flow\, each time the trajectory of the syst
em crosses M the phase velocity field is changed with a new one sampled at
random from a suitable neighborhood of the unperturbed one. The resulting
random evolution is therefore described by a piecewise deterministic Mark
ov process. The proof of the stochastic stability for the unperturbed flow
is then carried on working either in the framework of the Random Dynamica

eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWhen one considers manifolds with boundary\, billiar
d dynamics are the natural analogue of standard geodesic dynamics. Namely\
, instead of having geodesics escape at the boundary\, we force them back
into the manifold using the reflection law. In other dynamical settings\,
similar constructions are possible: In 2006\, B. Khesin and S. Tabachnikov
initiated the study of billiards in the semiriemannian setting\, studying
the integrability of various tables. In recent years we have also seen th
e appearance of several billiard setups of symplectic nature.\n\nIn this t
alk I will discuss recent work with L. Dahinden in which we look at billia
rds in subriemannian geometry. I will sketch how the reflection law arises
naturally both from the control-theoretical and symplectic perspectives\,
how the reflection is problematic at tangency points between the distribu
tion and the boundary of the table\, and I will introduce some concrete ex
amples. My ultimate goal will be to pose several intriguing open questions

completeness\nby Eva Miranda & Daniel Peralta-Salas (UPC Barcelona &
ICMAT Madrid (Spain)) as part of DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar\n\n\nA
bstract\nThe dynamics of an inviscid and incompressible fluid flow on a Ri
emannian manifold is governed by the Euler equations. Recently\, Tao launc
hed a programme to address the global existence problem for the Euler and
Navier Stokes equations based on the concept of universality. Inspired by
this proposal\, we show that the stationary Euler equations exhibit severa
l universality features\, In the sense that\, any non-autonomous flow on a
compact manifold can be extended to a smooth stationary solution of the E
uler equations on some Riemannian manifold of possibly higher dimension. \
nThese results can be viewed as lending support to the intuition that solu
tions to the Euler equations can be extremely complicated in nature.\nA ke
y point in the proof is looking at the h-principle in contact geometry thr
ough a contact mirror\, unveiled by Sullivan\, Etnyre and Ghrist more than
two decades ago.\n\nWe end up this talk addressing an apparently differen
t question: What kind of physics might be non-computational? Using the for
mer universality result\, we can establish the Turing completeness of the
steady Euler flows\, i.e.\, there exist solutions that encode a universal
Turing machine and\, in particular\, these solutions have undecidable tra
jectories.. But\, in view of the increase of dimension yielded by our proo
f. The question is can this be done in dimension 3? We will prove the exis
tence of Turing complete fluid\nflows on a 3-dimensional geometric domain.
Our novel strategy uses the computational power of symbolic dynamics and
the contact mirror again.\n\nThis talk is based on joint work with Robert
Cardona and Fran Presas ( arXiv:1911.01963 and arXiv:2012.12828 )\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The simplest erasing substitution\nby Alessandro Della Corte (Univer
sità di Camerino (Italy)) as part of DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nThe symbolic action of a substitution on the binary expansio
n generates naturally an interval map. In case of erasing substitutions\,
the map is typically Baire-1 and not Darboux. As a model case\, we conside
r what is arguably the simplest erasing substitution\, mapping 0s to the e
mpty word and 1s to 0 or 1 depending on the parity. The corresponding inte
rval map is shown to have fractal properties (bounds are given on the Haus
dorff dimension of the fibers) and to display rich dynamical behavior\, in
cluding Devaney chaos\, uniform distributional chaos of type 1\, infinite
topological entropy as well as the presence of cycles attracting in a fini
te time every rational.\n
