Thin Groups and Superstrong Approximation
by Emmanuel Breuillard, Hee Oh (eds.)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2014
Number of pages: 362
This is a collection of surveys and primarily expository articles focusing on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of 'thin groups'. This book provides a broad panorama of a very active field of mathematics at the boundary between geometry, dynamical systems, number theory, and combinatorics.

This course brings together two areas of mathematics that each concern symmetry -- symmetry in algebra, in the case of Galois theory; and symmetry in geometry, in the case of fundamental groups. Prerequisites are courses in algebra and analysis.

A beginning graduate level book on applied group theory. Only those aspects of group theory are treated which are useful in the physical sciences, but the mathematical apparatus underlying the applications is presented with a high degree of rigor.
