  • Speaker: Oliver Jenkinson(Queen Mary University of London)

  • Time: Sep 4, 2023, 11:00-12:00

  • Location: ICM Lecture Hall Room 240A


For the problem of optimizing ergodic averages associated to chaotic dynamical systems, we will investigate the extent to which optimal solutions are "simple" .
