Homogeneous dynamics, the theory of flows on homogeneous spaces, has been proved useful for certain problems in Number theory.

In this talk, we will explain what kind of geometry and dynamics we need to solve certain number theoretic questions such as counting matrices of integer entries, or some problems in Diophantine approximation. The appropriate manifold can often be seen as a space of lattices, and its asymptotic geometry is governed by the smallest length of a non-zero vector in a given lattice, which is also the backbone of post-quantum cryptography.

We will then explain how (partial) solutions of Oppenheim conjecture and Littlewood conjecture were obtained using homogeneous dynamics. We will also survey some recent results and remaining challenges.
