Abstract. Using techniques introduced by D. Mayer, we prove an extension of the classical Gauss–Kuzmin theorem about the distribution of continued fractions, which in particular allows one to take into account some congruence properties of successive convergents. This result has an application to the Mixmaster Universe model in general relativity. We then study some averages involving modular symbols and show that Dirichlet series related to modular forms of weight 2 can be obtained by integrating certain functions on real axis defined in terms of continued fractions. We argue that the quotient PGL(2,Z) \ P 1 (R) should be considered as non–commutative modular curve, and show that the modular complex can be seen as a sequence of K0–groups of the related crossed–product C ∗ –algebras. §0. Introduction and summary In this paper we study the interrelation between several topics: a generalization of the classical Gauss problem on the distribution of continued fractions, certain averages of modular symbols, the properties of geodesics on modular curves, the Mixmaster Universe model in general relativity, and the non–commutative geometry

Abstract. According to the holography principle (due to G. ‘t Hooft, L. Susskind, J. Maldacena, et al.), quantum gravity and string theory on certain manifolds with boundary can be studied in terms of a conformal field theory on the boundary. Only a few mathematically exact results corroborating this exciting program are known. In this paper we interpret from this perspective several constructions which arose initially in the arithmetic geometry of algebraic curves. We show that the relation between hyperbolic geometry and Arakelov geometry at arithmetic infinity involves exactly the same geometric data as the Euclidean AdS3 holography of black holes. Moreover, in the case of Euclidean AdS2 holography, we present some results on bulk/boundary correspondence where the boundary is a non–commutative space. 0.1. Holography principle. Consider a manifold M d+1 (“bulk space”) with boundary N d. The holography principle postulates the existence of strong ties between certain field theories on M and N respectively. For example, in the actively discussed Maldacena’s conjecture ([Mal], [Wi]), M d+1 is the anti de Sitter space

In Arakelov theory a completion of an arithmetic surface is achieved by enlarging the group of divisors by formal linear combinations of the “closed fibers at infinity”. Manin described the dual graph of any such closed fiber in terms of an infinite tangle of bounded geodesics in a hyperbolic handlebody endowed with a Schottky uniformization. In this paper we consider arithmetic surfaces over the ring of integers in a number field, with fibers of genus g ≥ 2. We use Connes ’ theory of spectral triples to relate the hyperbolic geometry of the handlebody to Deninger’s Archimedean cohomology and the cohomology of the cone of the local monodromy N at arithmetic infinity as introduced by the first author of this paper. First, we consider derived (cohomological) spectral data (A, H · (X ∗),Φ), where the algebra is obtained from the SL(2, R) action on the cohomology of the cone, induced by the presence of a polarized Lefschetz module structure, and its restriction to the group ring of a Fuchsian Schottky group. In this setting we recover the alternating product of the Archimedean factors from a zeta function of a spectral triple. Then, we introduce a different construction, which is related to Manin’s description of the dual graph of the fiber at infinity. We

It originates from the observation that, on a smooth compact spin manifold, the infinitesimal line element ds can be expressed in terms of the inverse of the classical Dirac operator D, so that the Riemannian

Buildings were first introduced by J.Tits in 1950s to give systematic geometric interpretations of exceptional Lie groups and have been generalized in various ways: Euclidean buildings (BruhatTits buildings), topological buildings, Rbuildings, in particular Rtrees. They are useful for many different applications in various subjects: algebraic groups, finite groups, finite geometry, representation theory over local fields, algebraic geometry, Arakelov intersection for arithmetic varieties, algebraic Ktheories, combinatorial group theory, global geometry and algebraic topology, in particular cohomology groups, of arithmetic groups and Sarithmetic groups, rigidity of cofinite subgroups of semisimple Lie groups and nonpositively curved manifolds, classification of isoparametric submanifolds in R n of high codimension, existence of hyperbolic structures on three dimensional manifolds in Thurston’s geometrization program. In this paper, we survey several applications of buildings in differential geometry and geometric topology. There are four underlying themes in these applications: 1. Buildings often describe the geometry at infinity of symmetric spaces and locally symmetric

We dedicate this work to Yuri Manin, with admiration and gratitude In Arakelov theory a completion of an arithmetic surface is achieved by enlarging the group of divisors by formal linear combinations of the \closed bers at innity". Manin described the dual graph of any such closed ber in terms of an innite tangle of bounded geodesics in a hyperbolic handlebody endowed with a Schottky uniformization. In this paper we consider arithmetic surfaces over the ring of integers in a number eld, with bers of genus g 2. We use Connes ' theory of spectral triples to relate the hyperbolic geometry of the handlebody to Deninger's Archimedean cohomology and the cohomology of the cone of the local monodromy N at arithmetic innity as introduced by the rst author of this paper. First, we consider derived (cohomological) spectral data (A; H

This paper generalizes Yu. Manin’s approach toward a geometrical interpretation of Arakelov theory at infinity to linear cycles in projective spaces. We show how to interpret certain nonArchimedean Arakelov intersection numbers of linear cycles on P n−1 with the combinatorial geometry of the BruhatTits building associated to PGL(n). This geometric setting has an Archimedean analogue, namely, the Riemannian symmetric space associated to SL(n, C), which we use to interpret analogous Archimedean intersection numbers of linear cycles in a similar way.
