Metrical musings on Littlewood and friends
Prof Simon Kristensen (Aarhus University, Denmark)
Host Venue/b> La Trobe University
The celebrated Littlewood conjecture in Diophantine approximation concerns the simultaneous approximation of two real numbers by rationals with the same denominator. A cousin of this conjecture is the mixed Littlewood conjecture of de Mathan and Teuliť, which is concerned with the approximation of a single real number, but where some denominators are preferred to others.
In the talk, we will derive a metrical result extending work of Pollington and Velani on the Littlewood conjecture. Our result implies the existence of an abundance of numbers satisfying both conjectures.
