Description

An introduction to the probabilistic viewpoint in dynamical systems, and the more recent equidistribution results in arithmetic geometry.

Topics covered

After brief overview of ergodic theory and dynamical systems, the course will center on arithmetic heights in dimension 1. The emphasis will be on the intersection of these topics: Arithmetic dynamics.
