Local Arithmetic Siegel-Weil Formula at Ramified Prime |
In this talk, I will describe a local arithmetic Siegel-Weil formula which relates certain intersection number on U(1,1) Rapoport-Zink space with local density. Via p-adic uniformization, this can be used to establish a global Siegel-Weil formula. The main novelty of this work is that we consider the ramified case. This is a joint work with Yousheng Shi and Tonghai Yang. |

Bounding Numbers Fields up to Discriminant |
For those interested in arithmetic statistics, I'll present a quick proof of Schmidt's bound on numbers fields of given degree and bounded discriminant, as well as giving a quick overview of recent improvements on this bound by Ellenberg and Venkatesh. |

Brandon Boggess |
Dial M_{1,1} for moduli |
We'll try to give a brief introduction to moduli problems, with an eye towards moduli of elliptic curves. |

Character Ratio of the Transvection in GL_n(F_q) |
This will be a prep talk for Wednesday's NTS talk by Shamgar Gurevich. We will talk about the character ratio of the transvection in GL_n(F_q) and results concerning this quantity. |

Recent applications of geometry of numbers. |
I will review geometry of numbers and then discuss its applications to bounds of 2-torsion in class groups of number fields (2017) in detail. If time permits, I will also discuss its application to counting number fields with bounded discriminant (2019) briefly. |

Representation stability and the Cohen- Lenstra Conjecture. |
I will talk about the tool of representation stability in cohomology and how can one use this to do some algebraic counting over finite field, how it works in the proof of the Cohen- Lenstra conjecture over function field in Jordan's 2015 paper if time permits. |
