Effective equidistribution of rational points on expanding horospheres

10 November 2016

The equidistribution theorem for rational points on expanding horospheres with fixed denominator in the space of d-dimensional Euclidean lattices has been derived in the work by M. Einsiedler, S. Mozes, N. Shah and U. Shapira. The proof of their theorem requires ergodic theoretic tools, including Ratner's measure classification theorem. In this talk I will present an alternative approach, based on harmonic analysis and Weil's bound for Kloosterman sums. In the case of d=3, unlike the ergodic-theoretic approach, this provides an explicit estimate on the rate of convergence. This is a joint work with Jens Marklof.
