Title: Salem Numbers and Complex Torus Automorphisms
Abstract: We will discuss some general results about the characterization of possible entropies for complex surface automorphisms. We will use these results to give a detailed characterization of the entropies that occur on two-dimensional complex tori. We will also describe the different types of tori that admit positive-entropy automorphisms.
