SL(2,p): Computations, Quantum Chaos, and Conjectures


Speaker: Daniel Rockmore, Dartmouth College
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Mon, Apr 28 2003, 4:10PM

Cayley graphs of finite groups have proved to be fertile ground for the investigations of various aspects of quantum chaos. This talk focuses on recent work in this area mainly related to the family of finite matrix groups SL(2,p). Much of this is joint with Alex Gamburd (Stanford) and John Lafferty (CMU).
