DESCRIPTION:Title: A Tits alternative for endomorphisms of the projective line\n
by Keping Huang (MSU) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number Theory seminar\n\n
\nAbstract\nWe prove an analog of the Tits alternative for endomorphisms o
f $\\mathbb{P}^1$. In particular\, we show that if $S$ is a finitely gene
rated semigroup of endomorphisms of $\\mathbb{P}^1$ over $\\mathbb{C}$\, t
hen either $S$ has polynomially bounded growth or $S$ contains a nonabelia
n free semigroup. We also show that if $f$ and $g$ are polarizable maps o
ver any field of any characteristic and $\\mathrm{Prep}(f) \\neq \\mathrm{
Prep}(g)$\, then for all sufficiently large $j$\, the semigroup $\\langle
f^j\, g^j \\rangle$ is a free semigroup on two generators. This is a joint
work with Jason Bell\, Wayne Peng\, and Thomas Tucker.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A conjectural uniform construction of many rigid Calabi-Yau three
folds\nby Adam Logan (Govt. of Canada and Carleton U.) as part of Carl
eton-Ottawa Number Theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven a rational Hecke ei
genform f of weight 2\, Eichler-Shimura theory gives a construction of an
elliptic curve over Q whose associated modular form is f. Mazur\, van Stra
ten\, and others have asked whether there is an analogous construction for
Hecke eigenforms f of weight k >2 that produces a variety for which the G
alois representation on its etale H^{k−1} (modulo classes of cycles if k
is odd) is that of f. In weight 3 this is understood by work of Elkies an
d Schutt\, but in higher weight it remains mysterious\, despite many examp
les in weight 4. In this talk I will present a new construction based on f
amilies of K3 surfaces of Picard number 19 that recovers many existing exa
mples in weight 4 and produces almost 20 new ones.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the $\\mathfrak{M}_H(G)$-property\nby Soren Kleine (Univer
sität der Bundeswehr München) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number Theory s
eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet $p$ be any rational prime\, and let $E$ be an el
liptic curve defined over $\\mathbb{Q}$ which has good ordinary reduction
at the prime $p$. We let $K$ be a number field\, which we assume to be tot
ally imaginary if ${p = 2}$. \n \n Let $K_\\infty$ be a $\\Z_p^2$-extens
ion of $K$ which contains the cyclotomic $\\Z_p$-extension $K_{cyc}$ of $K
$. The classical $\\mathfrak{M}_H(G)$-conjecture is a statement about the
Pontryagin dual $X(E/K_\\infty)$ of the Selmer group of $E$ over $K_\\inft
y$: if \n \\[ H_{cyc} = \\Gal(K_\\infty/K_{cyc}) \\subseteq \\Gal(K_\\inf
ty/K) =: G\, \\] \n then the quotient $X(E/K_\\infty)/X(E/K_\\infty)[p^\\
infty]$ of $X(E/K_\\infty)$ by its $p$-torsion submodule\, which is known
to be finitely generated over $\\Z_p[[G]]$\, is conjectured to be actually
finitely generated as a $\\Z_p[[H_{cyc}]]$-module. \n \n In this talk\,
we discuss an analogous property for non-cyclotomic $\\Z_p$-extensions. T
o be more precise\, we let $\\mathcal{E}$ be the set of $\\Z_p$-extensions
${L \\subseteq K_\\infty}$ of $K$. For each ${L \\in \\mathcal{E}}$\, one
can ask whether the quotient \n \\[ X(E/K_\\infty)/X(E/K_\\infty)[p^\\in
fty] \\] \n is finitely generated as a $\\Z_p[[H]]$-module\, where now ${
H = \\Gal(K_\\infty/L)}$. We prove many equivalent criteria for the validi
ty of this $\\mathfrak{M}_H(G)$-property\, some of which generalise previo
usly known conditions for the special case ${H = H_{cyc}}$\, whereas sever
al other conditions are completely new. The new conditions involve\, for e
xample\, the boundedness of $\\lambda$-invariants of the Pontryagin duals
$X(E/L)$ as one runs over the elements ${L \\in \\mathcal{E}}$. By using t
he new conditions\, we can show that the $\\mathfrak{M}_H(G)$-property hol
ds for all but finitely many ${L \\in \\mathcal{E}}$. \n \n Moreover\, w
e also derive several applications. For example\, we can prove some specia
l cases of a conjecture of Mazur on the growth of Mordell-Weil ranks along
the $\\Z_p$-extensions in $\\mathcal{E}$. \n \n All of this is joint wo

DESCRIPTION:Title: Explicit reciprocity law for finite slope modulalr forms\nby
Shilun Wang (Università degli Studi di Padova) as part of Carleton-Ottawa
Number Theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nDarmon and Rotger constructed the ge
neralized diagonal cycles in the product of three\nKuga-Sato varieties\, w
hich generalizes the modified diagonal cycle considered by Gross–Kudla a
nd Gross–Schoen. Recently\, Bertolini\, Seveso and Venerucci found a dif
ferent way to construct the diagonal cycles. They proved the p-adic Gross
–Zagier formula and the explicit reciprocity law relating to p-adic L-fu
nction attached to the Garrett–Rankin triple convolution of three Hida f
amilies of modular forms. These formulae have wide range of applications\,
such as Bloch–Kato conjecture and exceptional zero problem. However\,
we find that both constructions do not have any requirements on the slope
of modular form\, so it is possible to apply their constructions to the ot
her case that the modular forms are of finite slope. Combining with the p-
adic L-function for modular forms of finite slope constructed by Andreatta
and Iovita recently\, we can try to generalize results to the triple conv
olution of three Coleman families of modular forms.\nIn this talk\, I will
give a brief introduction to how to generalize Bertolini\, Seveso and\nVe
nerucci’s results and if time permits\, I will try to talk about some ap
plications. All of this is from the work in progress.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: An upper bound for polynomial log-volume growth of automorphisms
of zero entropy\nby Fei Hu (U. Oslo) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number
Theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet f be an automorphism of zero entropy of
a smooth projective variety X. \nThe polynomial log-volume growth $\\oper
atorname{plov(f)}$ of f is a natural analog of Gromov's log-volume growth
of automorphisms (of positive entropy)\, formally introduced by Cantat and
Paris-Romaskevich for slow dynamics in 2020. \nA surprising fact noticed
by Lin\, Oguiso\, and Zhang in 2021 is that this dynamical invariant plov(
f) essentially coincides with the Gelfand-Kirillov dimension of the twiste
d homogeneous coordinate ring associated with (X\, f)\, introduced by Arti
n\, Tate\, and Van den Bergh in the 1990s.\nIt was conjectured by them tha
t $\\operatorname{plov}(f)$ is bounded above by $d^2$\, where $d = \\opera
torname{dim} X$. \n\nWe prove an upper bound for $\\operatorname{plov}(f)$
in terms of the dimension $d$ of $X$ and another fundamental invariant $k
$ of $(X\, f)$ (i.e.\, the degree growth rate of iterates $f^n$ with respe
ct to an arbitrary ample divisor on $X$).\nAs a corollary\, we prove the a
bove conjecture based on an earlier work of Dinh\, Lin\, Oguiso\, and Zhan
g.\nThis is joint work with Chen Jiang.\n

vanishing of this Dirichlet series specialized at positive integers. This
theme was initiated by Chowla and carried out by Okada for a particular i

DESCRIPTION:Title: Radical Sylvester-Gallai configurations\nby Akash Sengupta (
University of Waterloo) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number Theory seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nIn 1893\, Sylvester asked a basic question in combinatorial
geometry: given a finite set of distinct points v_1\,...\, v_m in R^n suc
h that the line joining any pair of distinct points v_i\,v_j contains a th
ird point v_k in the set\, must all points in the set be collinear?\n\nThe
classical Sylvester-Gallai (SG) theorem says that the answer to Sylvester
’s question is yes\, i.e. such finite sets of points are all collinear.
Generalizations of Sylvester's problem\, which are known as Sylvester-Gall
ai type problems have been widely studied by mathematicians\, have found r
emarkable applications in algebraic complexity theory and coding theory. T
he underlying theme in all Sylvester-Gallai type questions is the followin
g:\n\nAre Sylvester-Gallai type configurations always low-dimensional?\n\n
In this talk\, we will discuss a non-linear generalization of Sylvester's
problem\, and its connections with the Stillman uniformity phenomenon in C
ommutative Algebra. I’ll talk about an algebraic-geometric approach towa
rds studying such SG-configurations and a result showing that radical SG-c
onfigurations are indeed low dimensional as conjectured by Gupta in 2014.

DESCRIPTION:Title: Variance over Z and moments of L-functions\nby David Nguyen
(Queen's University) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number Theory seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nOne of the central problems in analytic number theory has been
to evaluate moments of the absolute value of L-functions on the critical l
ine. Bounds on these moments are approximations to the Lindelöf hypothesi
s and\, thus\, subconvexity bounds for these L-functions. Besides a few lo
w moments where rigorous results are known\, sharp bounds on higher moment
s are wide open. Recently\, in 2018\, it has been discovered that there is
a certain connection between asymptotics of moments of L-functions and va
riance over the integers (the Keating--Rodgers--Roditty-Gershon--Rudnick--
Soundararajan conjecture in arithmetic progressions). Certain analogues of
this conjecture are completely known\, i.e.\, are theorems\, in the funct
ion field setting. In this lecture\, I plan to explain this new connection
between asymptotics of variance over Z and those of moments\, and discuss
my work on confirming a smoothed version of this conjecture in a restrict

DESCRIPTION:Title: The refined Humbert invariant as an ingredient\nby Harun Kir
(Queen's University) as part of Carleton-Ottawa Number Theory seminar\n\n
Lecture held in STEM-664.\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk\, I will advertise t
he refined Humbert invariant\, which is the main ingredient of my resear
ch. It was introduced by Ernst Kani(1994) upon observing that every curve
$C$ comes equipped with a canonically defined positive definite quadratic
form $q_C$. This result can be used to define algebraically the (usual)
Humbert invariant (1899) and Humbert surfaces. \n\nThe beauty of the refin
ed Humbert invariant is that it translates the geometric questions into th
e arithmetic questions. Therefore\, it allows us to solve many interestin
g geometric problems regarding the nature of curves of genus $2$ including
the automorphism groups and the elliptic subcovers of these curves\, the
intersection of the Humbert surfaces\, and the CM points on the Shimuracu
rves in this intersection. \n\nI will also give the classification of this
invariant in the CM case as these illustrations reveal how interesting th
e refined Humbert invariant is.\n
