### Algebraic billiards and dynamical degrees

CMSA Room G10 CMSA, 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA, United StatesAlgebraic Geometry in String Theory Seminar Speaker: Max Weinreich (Harvard) Title: Algebraic billiards and dynamical degrees Abstract: Billiards is one of the most-studied dynamical systems, modeling the behavior of a point particle bouncing around some space. If the space is a plane region bounded by an algebraic curve, then we may use techniques from algebraic geometry […]
