The Dynamical Mordell-Lang Conjecture

Fri., Jan. 22, 2010, 3:00pm, MATX 1100


Motivated by the classical Mordell-Lang problem we formulate a dynamical generalization, which we show that it doesn't always hold. Then we discuss the cyclic case of our question, which we call the Dynamical Mordell-Lang Conjecture. We present several positive results which support our conjecture, and discuss the difficulties one has for proving the full conjecture. In particular, our work answers a basic question from complex dynamics.
