"Preparing for polynomial dynamics of the affine plane"

We will begin applying our knowledge of the valuative tree to the case of polynomial dynamics of the affine plane. Our goal is to begin understanding when a dominant polynomial morphism of the affine plane has a zariski dense orbit.

Boyu Li, University of Victoria

"Amenable and Non-amenable Semigroups"

Since Nica introduced the notion of amenability of quasi-lattice ordered semigroups, the amenability for many classes of semigroups remain unanswered. We will give a brief overview of semigroup amenability, and show some recent developments on this topic using dilation theory. In particular, we shall show that Artin monoids are non-amenable except the class of right-angled. This is a joint work with Marcelo Laca.
