Guillermo Mantilla-Soler (EPFL)
Title: The spinor genus of the integral trace and local arithmetic equivalence

Abstract: In this talk I'll explain my recent results on the spinor genus of the integral trace form of a number field. I'll show how from them one can decide in terms of finitely many ramification invariants, and under some restrictions, whether or not a pair of number fields have isometric integral trace forms. Inspired by the work of R. Perlis on number fields with the same zeta function I'll define the notion of local arithmetic equivalence, and I'll show that under certain hypothesis this equivalence determines the local root numbers of the number field, and the isometry class of integral trace form.

Title: Endoscopy and cohomology growth on U(3)

Abstract: I will use the endoscopic classification of automorphic forms on U(3) to determine the asymptotic cohomology growth of families of complex-hyperbolic 2-manifolds.

Valerio Toledano Laredo (Northeastern)
Title: From Yangians to quantum loop algebras via abelian difference equations

Abstract: For a semisimple Lie algebra g, the quantum loop algebra and the Yangian are deformations of the loop algebra g[z, z − 1] and the current algebra g[u], respectively. These infinite-dimensional quantum groups share many common features, though a precise explanation of these similarities has been missing so far.

In this talk, I will explain how to construct a functor between the finite-dimensional representation categories of these two Hopf algebras which accounts for all known similarities between them.

The functor is transcendental in nature, and is obtained from the discrete monodromy of an abelian difference equation canonically associated to the Yangian.

This talk is based on a joint work with Sachin Gautam.

Bogdan Petrenko (Eastern Illinois University)
Title: Generating an algebra from the probabilistic standpoint

Abstract: Let A be a ring whose additive group is free Abelian of finite rank. The topic of this talk is the following question: what is the probability that several random elements of A generate it as a ring? After making this question precise, I will show that it has an interesting answer which can be interpreted as a local-global principle. Some applications will be discussed. This talk will be based on my joint work with Rostyslav Kravchenko (University of Chicago) and Marcin Mazur (Binghamton University).

Title: Equidistribution on the space of rank two vector bundles over the projective line

Abstract: I will discuss how the algebraic geometry of hyperelliptic curves gives an approach to a function field analogue of the 'mixing conjecture' of Michel and Venkatesh. (For a rather longer abstract, see the arxiv posting of the same name as the talk). This talk presents joint work with Jacob Tsimerman.
