February 24(Friday) - 27(Monday), 2006
 
On February 24 - 27 Yale University hosted a conference on Lie Groups: Dynamics, Rigidity, Arithmetic in honor of the 60th birthday of Gregory Margulis.
 
The conference's aims were to bring together scholars from around the world for fruitful scientific exchange in a broad range of areas reflecting Gregory Margulis' mathematical influence over the last 30-40 years in rigidity theory, ergodic theory, dynamics, applications to number theory, discrete subgroups of Lie groups and combinatorics.
 
Friday, Saturday and Sunday talks were held at:
Linsly-Chittenden Hall
61-63 High Street, Room 102

Monday's talks were held at:
