Salem and Pisot numbers are two remarkable class of algebraic integers. We'll talk about their special number-theoretic properties and their connection to other parts of mathematics such as graph theory, hyperbolic geometry and dynamical systems. At the end, we'll talk about relevant conjectures which have resisted proof for many years.
