Talk at 4:30 p.m. in 317 Goldsmith Hall

Tea at 4:00 p.m. in 300 Goldsmith Hall

Abstract: In this talk I will describe the notion of a strong spectral gap and outline some of its applications to dynamics, geometry, and number theory. In particular, I will discuss its application to the hyperbolic lattice counting problem and review some results establishing bounds for the strong spectral gap.
