Title: Smooth Local Rigidity of Algebraic Actions

Speaker: Zhenqi Wang (Michigan State University)

Abstract: At first, we will introduce the background of algebraic actions and give some interesting examples. Next, we will review of various smooth rigidity results for higher-rank algebraic actions and recent progress. Finally, we will talk about the new progress on smooth rigidity of rank-one partially hyperbolic actions and future directions.
