Diophantine Approximation and Dynamical Systems

We will be hosting the workshop on “Diophantine Approximation and Dynamical Systems, 6–8 January 2018” at La Trobe University Bundoora Campus.

Workshop Program and Abstracts

Soon the workshop program and abstracts of talks will be uploaded here.

All the talk will be held in the room (to be advised). The room is equipped with a projector and several whiteboards.


Please register for the conference at this link  Registration link.  If you would like to give a talk then send your expression of interest to the conference organisers, Mumtaz Hussain at m.hussain@latrobe.edu.au and/or Dzmitry Badziahin at Dzmitry.Badziahin@sydney.edu.au

The aim of this focused workshop is to explore the interconnected topics in Diophantine approximation, Dynamical Systems, and Ergodic Theory in a free-flowing manner. Talks of leading experts and dynamic emerging researchers will specifically focus on open problems which connect all of these areas of research. This conference will provide opportunities, for both established and emerging researchers, to discuss active hot research topics with experts of the fields with a view towards exploring various methods and techniques which could be possible candidates for their resolution

So far the confirmed speakers include

  • Dzmitry Badziahin (The University of Sydney, Australia)
  • Yitwah Cheung (San Francisco State University, USA)
  • Sam Chow (The University of York, UK)
  • Oleg German (Moscow State University, Russia)
  • Andy Hone (The University of Kent, UK)
  • Mumtaz Hussain (La Trobe University, Australia)
  • Oleg Karpenkov (The University of Liverpool, UK)
  • Simon Kristensen (Aarhus University, Denmark)
  • Bing Li (South China University of Technology, China)
  • Seonhee Lim (Seoul National University, Korea)
  • Andy Pollington (NSF, USA)
  • Johannes Schleischitz (University of Ottawa, Canada)
  • David Simmons (The University of York, UK)
  • Bob Vaughan, FRS, (Pennsylvania State University, USA)
  • Michel Waldschmidt (Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI), France)
  • Baowei Wang (Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China)

How to arrive at La Trobe University (Bundoora) from Melbourne airport

If you are travelling to or from the Airport the most simple and easiest way to take a Taxi which will cost approximately $60 (AUD).

The alternatives means are to:

Although, there is a cheaper way ($3.60 – Zone 2 concession) involving more transfers:


* Skybus is a commercial service that operates at 10-20 minute intervals and takes approximately 20 minutes to reach the Melbourne CBD (Southern Cross Railway Station). It operates 24 hours per day. A single journey costs $19. For more information, visit the Skybus website.
