Title: Beyond Furstenberg’s intersection conjecture

Speaker: Bablo Shmerkin – University of British Columbia (UBC)

Abstract: Hillel Furstenberg conjectured in the 1960s that the intersections of closed ×2 and ×3-invariant Cantor sets have “small” Hausdorff dimension. This conjecture was proved independently by Meng Wu and by myself; recently, Tim Austin found a simple proof. I will present some generalizations of the intersection conjecture and other related results.
