Pure Maths Colloquium
Thermodynamic formalism in dynamical systems, June 2018
British Mathematical Colloquium 2018 - Registration now open!
I am a Reader in pure maths at St Andrews, where I've worked since 2011. Before that I held positions in Boston, Porto and Surrey, following my PhD in Warwick. I'm also an associate member of the Centre for Mathematics at the University of Porto (CMUP).
I am the Ergodic Theory editor for the Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society. If you wish to submit a paper to that, follow the instructions here.
- Thermodynamic formalism: existence and uniqueness of equilibrium states for dynamical systems, phase transitions and transience
- Recurrence: Extreme value theory and hitting time statistics
- Statistical stability: convergence of measures in non-uniformly hyperbolic systems
- Open systems: statistical properties of dynamical systems with holes
- Slow mixing: statistical laws for dynamical systems with significant lack of uniform expansion
