This page contains the titles and abstracts for talks scheduled in the Spring 2020 semester. To go back to the main GNTS page, click here.
Jan 21
Qiao He |
Representation theory and arithmetic geometry |
In this talk I will talk about the relation between representation theory and arithmetic geometry. In particular, I will try to discuss several examples that connect representation theory and arithmetic geometry closely. Then if time permits, I will give a brief introduction to trace formula approach, which is the most powerful and promising tools in this field. |
Jan 28
Asvin Gothandaraman |
Modular forms and class groups |
In preparation for Thursday's talk, I will review some concepts from Galois Cohomology. I will also give an introduction to the Herbrand-Ribet theorem. |
Feb 4
Johnnie Han |
ABC's of Shimura Varieties |
I'll present some of the formalization of Shimura varieties, with a strong emphasis on examples so that we can all get a small foothold whenever someone says the term Shimura variety. |
Feb 11
Will Hardt and John Yin |
Primality Tests Arising From Counting Points on Elliptic Curves Over Finite Fields |
We will give some background on counting the rational points on an elliptic curve over a finite field. Then we will apply this theory to a couple of specific elliptic curves and explain how it results in (impractical) primality tests. |
