4:00 pm Thursday, October 29, 2009 Colloquium: Schroedinger equations with potentials generated by shifts and skew-shiftsby Michael Goldstein (University of Toronto) in HB 227- In this talk we give an exposition of the ideas, methods and technological tools developed in last ten years for the analysis of one-dimensional diﬀerence Schroedinger equations with potentials generated by shift and skew-shift H(x, ω)ϕ (n) ≡ −ϕ(n − 1) − ϕ(n + 1) + V (Tω^n(x))ϕ(n) = Eϕ(n) , n ∈ Z. Here Tω is a shift Tω (x) = x + ω, x, ω ∈ Tν , or a skew-shift, Tω (x, y) = (x + ω, y + x), (x, y) ∈ T^2 , ω ∈ T, and T^nω , n ∈ Z, stands for the n-th iteration of T . We state also the central open problems in this ﬁeld.
