## 2. Harmonic Measure

For a random walk on the fundamental group of a manifold of constant negative curvature, one has almost sure convergence to the boundary of hyperbolic space. This lets one define the hitting measure, by pushing forward the shift-space measure to the boundary S^n. How do properties of this measure relate to properties of the random walk?-
### Singularity of the Harmonic Measure

#### Problem 2.1.

[Vadim Kaimanovich] Let $\Gamma$ be a Fuchsian group, and let $\mu$ be a finitely supported measure on $\Gamma$. Is the harmonic measure singular with respect to the Lebesgue measure on the circle? -
### Dimension of Harmonic Measure over Moduli Space

#### Problem 2.2.

[Pablo Lessa] Fix some measure $\mu$ on $\pi_1(M)$, where $M$ is a manifold of curvature -1. Construct the random walk on hyperbolic $n$-space by picking a representation $\rho: \pi_1(M) \to $\text{Aut}(\mathbb{H}^n)$. How does the dimension of the harmonic measure $\nu$ change as a function of $\rho$? Is the function $\rho \to -\log{\text{dim}(\nu_\rho)}$ continuous? proper? -
### Witnessing a Conformal Measure

#### Problem 2.3.

[Francois Ledrappier] Let $G$ be a $\delta$-hyperbolic group. Let $\nu$ be a conformal measure on the Gromov Boundary $\partial_{\text{Gromov}} G$. does there exist some probability measure $\mu$ on $G$ such that $\nu$ and the hitting measure for $\mu$ lie in the same measure class?
