Ramanujan Lecture Hall

The ergodic theory of Lyapunov exponents, initiated by the work of Furstenberg and Kesten at the dawn of the 1960s, has been a remarkably active field of mathematics over all these decades and, through the works of Oseledets, Pesin and many, many others, found extremely important applications in the realm of smooth dynamics.  The speaker will survey some of the classical results and more recently developments, with a view to the future of the field.

This lecture is also part of the program Smooth and Homogeneous Dynamics.
