AMS peer-reviewed journals are of the highest quality in mathematical research. Our journals have been published since 1891 and cover a broad range of mathematics. Each journal is managed by editors who are prominent in their fields, and each is unique in its offering of articles, book reviews, and reports. In addition to publishing and distributing printed journals, the AMS offers searchable electronic versions that are available prior to the print versions. When the journal is available in electronic format, the electronic version is considered the version of record.

NEW! AMS journal contributors receive 15% off Charlesworth's specialist language editing and publication support services.
All articles submitted to journals published by the AMS are peer-reviewed. The AMS has a single blind peer-review process in which the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information on who the peer reviewers are. Questions about the initial submission process should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conformal Geometry and Dynamics provides a forum for mathematical work in related fields broadly described as conformal geometry and dynamics. These include complex dynamics--and real dynamics using complex techniques--Kleinian groups, hyperbolic geometry, Teichmüller theory, and quasiconformal mappings. The journal seeks high quality original papers of both a research and an expository nature. Research in these subjects has been very lively, and the interplay between individual areas has enriched them all. Color graphics are encouraged. Conformal Geometry is a fully open access journal freely available to all readers and with no publishing fees for authors. Published in electronic format only.Conformal tilings II: Local isomorphism, hierarchy, and conformal type
( view abstract )Conformal tilings II: Local isomorphism, hierarchy, and conformal type
This is the second in a series of papers on conformal tilings. The overriding themes here are local isomorphisms, hierarchical structures, and the conformal ``type'' problem. Conformal tilings were introduced by the authors in 1997 with a conformally regular pentagonal tiling of the plane. This and even more intricate hierarchical patterns arise when tilings are repeatedly subdivided. Deploying a notion of expansion complexes, we build two-way infinite combinatorial hierarchies and then study the associated conformal tilings. For certain subdivision rules the combinatorial hierarchical properties are faithfully mirrored in their concrete conformal realizations. Examples illustrate the theory throughout the paper. In particular, we study parabolic conformal hierarchies that display periodicities realized by Möbius transformations, motivating higher level hierarchies that will emerge in the next paper of this series.

( view abstract )Exponential self-similar mixing by incompressible flows
We study the problem of the optimal mixing of a passive scalar under the action of an incompressible flow in two space dimensions. The scalar solves the continuity equation with a divergence-free velocity field, which satisfies a bound in the Sobolev space , where and . The mixing properties are given in terms of a characteristic length scale, called the mixing scale. We consider two notions of mixing scale, one functional, expressed in terms of the homogeneous Sobolev norm , the other geometric, related to rearrangements of sets. We study rates of decay in time of both scales under self-similar mixing. For the case and (including the case of Lipschitz continuous velocities and the case of physical interest of enstrophy-constrained flows), we present examples of velocity fields and initial configurations for the scalars that saturate the exponential lower bound, established in previous works, on the time decay of both scales. We also present several consequences for the geometry of regular Lagrangian flows associated to Sobolev velocity fields.
On the linearity of lattices in affine buildings and ergodicity of the singular Cartan flow
( view abstract )On the linearity of lattices in affine buildings and ergodicity of the singular Cartan flow
Let be a locally finite irreducible affine building of dimension , and let be a discrete group acting cocompactly. The goal of this paper is to address the following question: When is linear? More generally, when does admit a finite-dimensional representation with infinite image over a commutative unital ring? If is the Bruhat-Tits building of a simple algebraic group over a local field and if is an arithmetic lattice, then is clearly linear. We prove that if is of type , then the converse holds. In particular, cocompact lattices in exotic -buildings are nonlinear. As an application, we obtain the first infinite family of lattices in exotic -buildings of arbitrarily large thickness, providing a partial answer to a question of W. Kantor from 1986. We also show that if is Bruhat-Tits of arbitrary type, then the linearity of implies that is virtually contained in the linear part of the automorphism group of ; in particular, is an arithmetic lattice. The proofs are based on the machinery of algebraic representations of ergodic systems recently developed by U. Bader and A. Furman. The implementation of that tool in the present context requires the geometric construction of a suitable ergodic -space attached to the the building , which we call the singular Cartan flow.
