Organizer: 

Dr. Hurth is a recent graduate of the Georgia Tech School of Mathematics. After his talk, the AMS Graduate Chapter is taking Dr. Hurth to dinner at Gordon Biersch. Graduate students and others interested in speaking to Dr. Hurth are invited to join us. If interested, please RSVP to JD Walsh (in person or at <a href="mailto:walsh@math.gatech.edu">walsh@math.gatech.edu</a>).

Dr. Hurth will talk about two relatively simple, related switching systems: one in 1D, the other in 2D. For both systems, he will sketch how to analyse the density of the associated invariant measure. This is straightforward for the 1D-example, but proves somewhat unexpectedly difficult for the 2D one.
