The Banff International Research Station will host the "Joint Spectra and related Topics in Complex Dynamics and Representation Theory" workshop in Banff from May 21 to May 26, 2023.

Mathematics has a wide range of different disciplines, from algebra to geometry and from analysis to topology, etc. Some discoveries, however, are able to link several disciplines together and open a field of interplay. Two of such recent discoveries are self-similar group representations and projective spectrum of linear operators. The goal of this workshop is bring together scholars in spectral theory, representation theory, complex dynamics and other related fields to exchange and examine some recent discoveries on self-similarity and projective spectrum.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
