„Random walk on projective spaces“
Prof. Yves Benoist, Université Paris Sud

One of the aims of Ergodic Geometry is to describe the statistical behavior of the trajectories of a smooth dynamical system. Even for the action of matrices on the real projective space this behavior can be quite chaotic. With JF Quint, we focus on a very concrete question. Let A and B be two such matrices spanning an irreducible representation. Let x be a point on the projective space. We toss A or B, apply it to x, get another point y, do it again to y, get a point z, and again. We check that this random trajectory is equidistributed on the projective space and we explain how the limit measure depends on the random trajectory and on the starting point.
