Event description:

We use the Selberg zeta function to study the limit behavior of resonances of a degenerating family of Kleinian Schottky groups. We prove that, after a suitable rescaling, the Selberg zeta functions converge to the Ihara zeta function of a limiting finite graph associated with the relevant non-Archimedean Schottky group acting on the Berkovich projective line. Moreover, our techniques can be used to obtain effective statements. One key idea is to introduce an intermediate zeta function that captures ArchimedeanĀ andĀ non-Archimedean information (while the Selberg resp. Ihara zeta function concerns only Archimedean resp. non-Archimedean properties). This is a joint work with Jialun Li, Carlos Matheus, and Zhongkai Tao.
