For a local field K of formal Laurent series and its ring Z of polynomials, we prove a pointwise equidistribution with an error rate of each H-orbit in SL(d, K)/SL(d, Z) for a certain proper subgroup H of a horospherical group, extending a work of Kleinbock-Shi-Weiss.

We obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of integral solutions to the Diophantine inequalities with weights, generalizing a result of Dodson-Kristensen-Levesley. This result enables us to show pointwise equidistribution for unbounded functions of class Cα.

We characterize the volume entropy of a regular building as the topological pressure of the geodesic flow on an apartment. We show that the entropy maximizing measure is not Liouville measure for any regular hyperbolic building. As a consequence, we obtain a strict lower bound on the volume entropy in terms of the branching numbers and the volume of the boundary polyhedrons.

We prove an analogue of a theorem of Eskin-Margulis-Mozes [10]. Suppose we are given a finite set of places
containing the Archimedean place and excluding the prime
, an irrational isotropic form
${\mathbf q}$
of rank
$n\geq 4$
, a product of
-adic intervals
, and a product
of star-shaped sets. We show that unless
${\mathbf q}$
is split in at least one place, the number of
-integral vectors
$\mathbf v \in {\mathsf{T}} \Omega$
satisfying simultaneously
${\mathbf q}(\mathbf v) \in I_p$
$p \in S$
is asymptotically given by
$\begin{split}\lambda({\mathbf q}, \Omega) |\,\mathsf{I}\,| \cdot \| {\mathsf{T}} \|^{n-2}\end{split}$
goes to infinity, where
is the product of Haar measures of the
-adic intervals
. The proof uses dynamics of unipotent flows on
-arithmetic homogeneous spaces; in particular, it relies on an equidistribution result for certain translates of orbits applied to test functions with a controlled growth at infinity, specified by an
-arithmetic variant of the
$ \alpha$
-function introduced in [10], and an
-arithemtic version of a theorem of Dani-Margulis [7].
