Title: The Erdos-Szusz-Turan distribution for equivariant point processes

Abstract: We generalize a problem of Erdos-Szusz-Turan on diophantine approximation to a variety of contexts, and use homogeneous dynamics to compute an associated probability distribution on the integers. This is joint work with Anish Ghosh.
