S-arithmetic Diophantine approximation

Diophantine approximation deals with quantitative and qualitative aspects of approximating numbers by rationals. A major breakthrough by Kleinbock and Margulis in 1998 was to study Diophantine approximations for manifolds using homogeneous dynamics. After giving an overview of recent developments in this subject, I will talk about Diophantine approximation in the S-arithmetic set-up, where S is a finite set of valuations of rationals.
