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.
