Title Diophantine approximation on manifolds: theory and applications
Speaker Mumtaz Hussain (La Trobe University, Australia)

The well-known theorems of Khintchine and Jarnik in Diophantine approximation provide a comprehensive description of the measure theoretic properties of real numbers approximable by rational numbers with a given error. Various generalizations of these fundamental results have been obtained for other settings, in particular, for curves and more generally manifolds. In this talk, I will explain my recent Jarnik type results for a parabola in homogeneous settings. This result is the first of its kind.
