Dr. Hillel Furstenberg is a Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the Einstein Institute of Mathematics. His research focuses on the interaction of stochastic phenomena and ergodictheory with other branches of mathematics; particularly group theory and number theory. He has studied the behavior of random products of matricesin the context of random walks on Lie groups and the theory of harmonic functions. He has investigated the interaction of recurrence phenomena in ergodic theory with combinatorial number theory. Currently he is studying applications of ergodic theory to the geometry of fractals.
