We discuss a nilsequence version of the classical Wiener-Wintner theorem on convergence of weighted ergodic averages due to Host and Kra and present a uniform version of this result. This is a joint work with Pavel Zorin-Kranich.

To construct a model for a connectedness locus of polynomials of degree $d\ge 3$ (cf with Thurston's model of the Mandelbrot set), we define linked geolaminations $\mathcal{L}_1$ and $\mathcal{L}_2$. An accordion is defined as the union of a leaf $\ell$ of $\mathcal{L}_1$ and leaves of $\mathcal{L}_2$ crossing $\ell$. We show that any accordion behaves like a gap of one lamination and prove that the maximal perfect (without isolated leaves) sublaminations of $\mathcal{L}_1$ and $\mathcal{L}_2$ coincide.

We study countably piecewise continuous, piecewise monotone interval
maps. We establish a necessary and sufficient criterion for the
existence of a nondecreasing semiconjugacy to a map of constant slope
in terms of the existence of an eigenvector of an operator acting on a
space of measures. Then we give sufficient conditions under which this
criterion is not satisfied. Finally, we give examples of maps not
semiconjugate to a map of constant slope via a nondecreasing map. Our

Let $(X,f)$ be a discrete dynamical system and let $\mathcal{F}$ be a hereditary upward set of subsets of $\mathbb{N}$. A point $x$ is $\mathcal{F}$-recurrent, if for any open neighborhood $U$ of $x$, return times of $x$ to $U$ are in $\mathcal{F}$, that is $\{n : f^n(X)\}\in \mathcal{F}$. A point $x$ is $\mathcal{F}$-PR if for any $\mathcal{F}$-recurrent point $y$ in any dynamical system $(X,g)$ the pair $(x,y)$ is recurrent for $(X\times Y, f\times g)$. In this talk we will present recent results and open problems related to the $\mathcal{F}$-PR property.

 In this talk, we study equicontinuity and sensitivity in the mean sense.
We show that  every ergodic invariant measure of a mean equicontinuous
(i.e. mean-L-stable) system has discrete spectrum. Dichotomy results related
to mean equicontinuity and mean sensitivity are obtained when a dynamical
system is transitive or minimal. Localizing the notion of mean equicontinuity,
notions of almost mean equicontinuity and almost Banach mean equicontinuity
are introduced. It turns out that a system with the former property may have

 There exists an astonishingly simple formula for the dynamical entropy of a process
(measure-preserving transformation with a partition),which can be easily extended
to actions of any countable group. This formula coincides with the standard one up
to amenable groups. I will discuss its applicability to other groups and, exploring
another direction, to topological entropy.

 We construct a continuum X such that it admits a minimal homeomorphism T
and the only self-homeomorphisms of X are the iterates of T. This is a joint
work with T. Downarowicz and D. Tywoniuk.

Cyclotomic polynomials of the form Phi_{pqr}(x) with p,q,r distinct odd primes are called ternary
cyclotomic polynomials. They are the easiest class of polynomials for which the behaviour of the
coefficients is not very well understood. I will present my methods and ideas to evaluate coefficients
and differences between consecutive coefficients of such polynomials.

 Motivated by Bowen's theory of thermodynamic formalism of
subshifts of finite type, Hofbauer started to create symbolic models with
non-Hoelder potentials as simple examples exhibiting phase transitions.
Hofbauer's examples relate directly to the Pomeau-Manneville map, which
Baraviera-Leplaideur-Lopes related again to a particular
substitution-based renormalization operator. In this talk, I want to
report on joint work with Leplaideur how this scheme extends to
non-trivial substitutions (Thue-Morse and Fibonacci), and discuss the

Entropy and independence in symbolic dynamics with connections to number theory

 We introduce a new family of shift spaces - the subordinate
shifts. Using them we prove in an elementary way that for every
nonnegative real number t one can find a shift space with entropy t.
Moreover, we show that there is a connection between positive entropy
and combinatorial independence of a shift space. Positive entropy can
be characterized through existence of a large (in terms of asymptotic
and Shnirelman densities) set of coordinates along which the highest
possible degree of randomness in points from the shift is observed. .
