Margulis’ proof in mid 80's of the longstanding Oppenheim Conjecture concerning values of indefinite quadratic forms at integer points using homogeneous dynamics, and the subsequent strengthening of this result by Dani and Margulis, were an important milestone in the development of the subject. I will describe joint work with Margulis which gives an effective proof of the Oppenheim conjecture, and explain how it relates to the quantitative study of unipotent flows.
