Subconvex equidistribution of cusp forms

Arithmetic quantum chaos concerns the limiting behavior of a sequence of automorphic forms on spaces such as the modular surface. It is now known in many cases (by work of Lindenstrauss, Holowinsky, Soundararajan and others) that the mass distributions of such forms equidistribute as the parameters tend off to infinity. Unfortunately, the known rates of equidistribution are typically weak (ineffective or logarithmic in the parameters). I will discuss the problem of obtaining strong rates (power savings) and the related subconvexity problem, emphasizing recent progress on the level aspect.

Princeton-Rider Workshop On the Homotopy Theory of Polyhedral Products

Cartesian products have embedded within them certain natural subsets which are indexed by combinatorial information. The geometric characterization of these subspaces, known now as polyhedral products, has  application in toric geometry and topology, combinatorics, geometric group theory, number theory, homotopy theory and arachnid mechanisms. The workshop will focus on the topology and geometry of these and related spaces.
