A theorem of Leibman asserts that a polynomial orbit $(g(1),g(2),g(3),\ldots)$ on a nilmanifold $G/\Gamma$ is always equidistributed in a union of closed sub-nilmanifolds of $G/\Gamma$. In this paper we give a quantitative version of Leibman's result, describing the uniform distribution properties of a finite polynomial orbit $(g(1),\ldots,g(N))$ in a nilmanifold. More specifically we show that there is a factorization $g = \epsilon g'\gamma$, where $\epsilon(n)$ is "smooth", $\gamma(n)$ is… Expand
