Dream

1000 research tracks. 300 mathematics cafes. 5000 researchers and students. 

We dream of rejuvenating the research atmosphere in India. Cheenta Research Track specifically caters to that dream.

Understand the problem

Suppose a relatively finitely presented group G is acting stably and minimally on a real tree T. Create a graph of groups decomposition of G using this group action.

Rips theory is used to analyze the action of finitely presented groups on real trees. We propose to extend the theory to relatively finitely presented case.

Arithmetical Dynamics: Part 6

Arithmetical Dynamics: Two possible problems

Today, we are going to discuss two possible problems for Arithmetical Dynamics in this post. 1.1. Existence of (pre)Periodic Points. These are the topics expanding on I.N. Baker’s theorem. Related reading: (1) Silverman Arithmetic of Dynamical Systems: p 165....

Arithmetical Dynamics: An intro:

Here I gave some introduction of Arithmetical Dynamics. What is it and why do we study it. Also there is one motivational question upraised.

Useful information

How it works

  • Training bursts (3 to 4 weekly training sessions once every two months)
  • Weekly presentation/problem solving (moderated)
  • Bi-weekly advisor meeting
  • Students are required to present at least once per month
  • Students are required to submit an expository article once every 6 months
