More advanced matters were undertaken later in the session, and notes are also provided here for lectures on the chaoticity of the Teichmuller flow, orbital counting through mixed and unipotent flows, equi-distribution on the modular surface and L-functions, and a semiclassical approach to eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on negatively curved manifolds.
