I will give a proof of Furstenberg's Theorem. We restrict ourselves to SL(2,R) cocycles. This is the second of two lectures. 

Professor Svetlana Jitomirskaya Named Fellow by American Academy of Arts & Sciences

04/19/2018

Congratulations to Professor Svetlana Jitomirskaya! She has been named a fellow by the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious honorary societies. Professor Jitomirskaya works in the interplay between Mathematical Physics and Dynamical Systems. She is considered the leading expert on the spectral theory of Schrodinger operators with quasiperiodic potentials, and has published major results concerning the almost Mathieu operator, introduced by Peierls to describe Bloch electrons in a magnetic field.
