Metric Diophantine approximation: the well approximable theory on manifolds

Velani, S (University of York)
Thursday 03 July 2014, 11:30-12:20

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I will give an overview of recent development regarding the metric theory of well approximable sets restricted to manifold. In particular, I will focus on the strengthening of the fundamental theorems of Khintchine and Gallagher, and demonstrate a basic principle that enables one to establish inhomogeneous extremality from (homogeneous) extermality. The end result of the latter is the inhomogeneous strengthening of the Kleinbock-Margulis theorem that validates the Baker-Sprindzuk Conjecture.
