Title:  Thin Matrix Groups

Abstract:   The general Ramanujan Conjectures for congruence subgroups of arithmetic groups and approximations that have been proven towards them, are central to many diophantine applications. Recently analogous results have been established for quite general subgroups of GL(n,Z) called "thin groups " . We will describe some of these and review some of their applications(mainly diophantine) as well as the ubiquity of thin groups.
