Conference on "Arithmetic Statistics, Automorphic Forms and Ergodic Methods", April 24 - 28, 2023

The field of arithmetic statistics is a fast-moving area of number theory, dealing with distributional results for many basic and important objects: ranks of elliptic curves, central values of L-functions, number fields, modular symbols, orbits of discrete groups etc. The techniques involved come from diverse areas of mathematics e.g. automorphic forms, ergodic theory, spectral theory, dynamical systems, probabilistic number theory, representation theory and random matrix theory. This workshop intends to bring together researchers of all career levels to present their work and exchange ideas and techniques on arithmetic statistics. Motivated by the  programme of Mazur and Rubin based on their computational study of elliptic curves over abelian extensions of fixed degree, the meeting will focus on modular symbols, Manin's noncommutative modular symbols, equidistribution of lattice points on the sphere, Heegner points, and closed geodesics, including the error term in the Prime Geodesic Theorem.

There will be invited talks lasting 50 or 25 minutes and other events aimed at facilitating discussions among participants.

Financial support

We encourage participants to seek external funding, so that the limited financial support available can be primarily used for early career mathematicians. In case you do need financial support, you can indicate this in the registration form.


As of November 30, 2022 the registration is closed. The total number of participants is limited and, after the deadline, we will inform the registered participants in January 2023 if participation is possible.
