DESCRIPTION:Title: Universal norms of p-adic Galois representations and the Fargues-Fontain
e curve\nby Gautier Ponsinet (Max Planck Institute) as part of CRM-CIC
MA Québec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbst
ract\nIn 1996\, Coates and Greenberg computed explicitly the module of uni
versal norms for abelian varieties over perfectoid field extensions. The
computation of this module is employed in Iwasawa theory\, notably to prov
e "control theorems" for Selmer groups\, generalizing Mazur's foundational
work on the Iwasawa theory of abelian varieties over Zp-extensions. \n\n
Coates and Greenberg raised the natural question on possible generalisatio
ns of their result to p-adic representations. In this talk\, I will prese
nt a new approach to this question relying on the classification of vector
bundles over the Fargues-Fontaine curve\, which allows us to answer Coate
and Greenberg's question affirmatively in new cases.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On higher regulators for Siegel Shimura varieties\nby Antonio Cauchi
(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Verm

himura varieties associated to the symplectic group GSp(6). We will expla
in how to construct classes in its motivic cohomology and how to compute t
heir image by Beilinson's higher regulator in terms of Rankin-Selberg type
automorphic integrals. Using results of Pollack and Shah\, we relate the
integral to a non-critical special value of the degree 8 spin L-function.
If time permits\, we will describe parallel work in progress\, which relat
es the residue at s=1 of these automorphic integrals to the existence of a
Tate class coming from a Hilbert modular subvariety. This relation partia
lly answers a question of Gross and Savin on motives with Galois group of
type G2. This is joint work with Francesco Lemma and Joaquin Rodrigues Jac

DESCRIPTION:Title: Explicit Rational Equivalences of Points on Surfaces\nby Jonathan Lo
ve (Stanford University) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Seri
es\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nThe Chow group of zero-cy
cles on a smooth projective surface X is obtained by taking the free abeli
an group generated by closed points on X\, and declaring two elements (“
zero-cycles”) to be equal if their difference is a sum of divisors of ra
tional functions on curves in X\; in this setting we say the zero-cycles a
re “rationally equivalent.” These Chow groups are notoriously difficul
t to compute\; while a set of conjectures due to Bloch and Beilinson predi
ct certain relations must hold in these groups when X is defined over a nu
mber field\, there are very few non-trivial cases in which these relations
have been proven to hold. In this talk\, I will discuss several technique
s that can be used to compute rational equivalences exhibiting some of the
expected relations\, in the case that X is a product of two elliptic curv
es over Q.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Irreducibility of the characteristic polynomial of a random integer matr
ix\nby Sean Eberhard (Cambridge University) as part of CRM-CICMA Québ
ec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nCo
nsider a random polynomial with integer coefficients. A natural conjecture
is that the polynomial is irreducible with high probability and its Galoi
s group is S_n. This question has been studied for various models of rando
m polynomial. The usual two models are the "bounded degree model"\, in whi
ch the degree is constant and the coefficients are large\, and the "bounde
d height model"\, in which the coefficients are drawn uniformly from a fix
ed interval and the degree becomes large. We will study a variant of the b
ounded height model: take a large n x n matrix with independent +-1 entrie
s and take its characteristic polynomial. To study this question we will c
ombine ideas from the bounded height model with random matrix theory over
a finite field. The method we use is dependent on both the extended Rieman
n hypothesis and the classification of finite simple groups.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Three modular fivefolds\nby Adam Logan (University of Ottawa) as pa
rt of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne
/Web.\n\nAbstract\nEichler and Shimura showed that to every rational Hecke
eigenform of weight 2 there is associated an isogeny class of elliptic cu
rves with the same L-function (and Wiles\, Taylor-Wiles\, et al. proved a
very famous converse). Work of Elkies and Schutt gives a similar result
for eigenforms of weight 3\, though the result has a very different flavou
r since all such forms arise from imaginary quadratic fields with class gr
oup of exponent dividing 2. There have been many attempts to associate C
alabi-Yau threefolds to eigenforms of weight 4 in such a way that the inte
resting part of the L-function of the threefold matches that of the modula
r form\, but in general the problem of doing so is open. In this talk we
give three examples of double covers of projective 5-space whose L-functi
ons involve an eigenform of weight 6. Two of the examples are proved\; o
ne is known to have a Calabi-Yau desingularization\, but the other is not.
In connection with these we will describe some new results (joint with
Colin Ingalls) on resolutions of singularities of double covers. The third
example\, still conjectural\, appears to point to a previously unknown id
entity of hypergeometric functions. We will also show how to use an idea
of Burek to find quotients of our varieties for which the point counts ca
n be expressed in terms of a single eigenform of weight 6.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the largest prime factor of n^2+1\nby Jori Merikoski (University
of Turku) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture
held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nIt is an open conjecture that there are
infinitely many prime numbers of the form n^2+1. To approach this we may
consider the largest prime factor of n^2+1. In this talk I show that the l
argest prime factor of n^2+1 is infinitely often greater than n^{1.279}. T
his improves the result of de la Bretèche and Drappeau who obtained the e
xponent 1.2182\, improving the exponent 1.2024 obtained by Deshouillers an
d Iwaniec. The main new ingredients in the proof are Harman's sieve method
and a new bilinear estimate which is proved by applying the Deshouillers-
Iwaniec bounds for sums of Kloosterman sums. Assuming Selberg's eigenvalue
conjecture the exponent 1.279 may be increased to 1.312.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Approximants for classical arithmetic functions\nby Terence Tao (UC

e M\\"obius function \\mu(n)\, the von Mangoldt function \\Lambda(n)\, or
the higher order divisor functions d_k(n) are notoriously difficult to wor
k with: for instance obtaining cancellation for \\sum_{n \\leq x} \\mu(n)
\\mu(n+1) is part of the Chowla conjecture\, obtaining an asymptotic for \
\sum_{n \\leq x} \\Lambda(n) \\Lambda(n+2) would give the twin prime conje

ecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\n(Joint work with Vesselin Dimitr
ov and Yunqing Tang). The arithmetic theory of modular forms usually con
siders functions on the upper half plane which transform nicely under a
“congruence subgroup" of SL_2(Z)\, that is\, a subgroup of SL_2(Z) conta
ining all matrices congruent to 1 mod N for some integer N. But as was al
ready known to Klein\, SL_2(Z) has many finite index subgroups which are *
not* congruence subgroups. It turns out that the modular forms for these
non-congruence subgroups behave quite differently. One longstanding open
problem which characterizes whether a modular form comes from a congruence
subgroup or not is the so-called “unbounded denominators conjecture”.
In this talk\, we give an overview of the proof of this conjecture\, sta
rting with an introduction to the conjecture itself. Organisateur : quebe

Q)\, where p is prime and L is a dihedral extension of Q of degree 2p\, to
a geometric model as a genus one curve embedded in Pp−1. We adapt the e
xisting methods to compute Heegner points to our situation\, and explicitl

s for several genus one curves that represent non-trivial elements of the
p-torsion part of the Tate-Shafarevich group of E\, for p≤11\, and hence
are counterexamples to the Hasse principle.\n

n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk we will discuss
two multiplicative problems for matrices: in the first part we will consi
der various counting problems with multiplicatively dependent integer matr
ices\, while the second part will consider a matrix analogue of the Lang p
roblem on torsion points on plane curves. Although bearing similar multipl
icative flavour\, these two parts are different in methods and results\, w
ith the first one being analytic and the second algebraic. In both cases\,
the non-commutativity of matrices affects the methods we apply\, which ar
e very \ndifferent from those used for their scalar analogues. \n\nMore pr

DESCRIPTION:Title: Semistability of G-torsors and integration questions in characteristic
p>0\nby Marion Jeannin (Université Lyon 1) as part of CRM-CICMA Québ
ec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nCo
nstructing quotients is a natural but difficult question in algebraic geom
etry. A key tool for this purpose is the notion of semistability. Let k
be a field and X be a k-curve. Let also G be a reductive group over X obt
ained from a reductive group over k by base change. Semistability for G-t
orsors can be defined by several ways. In this talk we present Atiyah--Bo
tt and Behrend's approaches. We then explain why the first approach can b
e extended to some positive characteristics and why both of these approach
es lead to the same notion (when they are both well-defined). For this\,
I established during my PhD an analogue in positive characteristic of a th
eorem of Morozov\, which classifies\, in characteristic 0\, parabolic suba
lgebras of a reductive group by means of their nilradical. \n\nIn the seco
nd part of the talk\, I will present this analogue and detail some of the
positive characteristic issues its proof raised. More specifically\, I wi
ll focus on integration questions for nil algebras in this context: roughl
y speaking I will discuss the existence of a map that plays the role of th
e exponential map (defined by its power series)\, even in small characteri
stics.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spacing statistics for lattice points on circles\nby Steve Lester (
King's College) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLec
ture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will describe the d
istribution of lattice points lying on circles. A striking result of Káta
i and Környei shows that along a density one subsequence of admissible ra
dii the angles of lattice points lying on circles are uniformly distribute
d in the limit as the radius tends to infinity. Their result goes further\
, proving that uniform distribution persists even at very small scales\, m
eaning that the angles are uniformly distributed within quickly shrinking
arcs. A more refined problem is to understand how the lattice points are s
paced together at the local scale\, e.g. given a circle containing N latti
ce points determine the number of gaps between consecutive angles of size
less than 1/N. I will discuss some recent joint work with Pär Kurlberg i
n which we compute the nearest neighbor spacing of the angles along a dens
ity one subsequence of admissible radii.\n

nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nI will survey work on explicit
solution of certain Diophantine equations that arise in various contexts\
, including determination of values of Fourier coefficients of modular for
ms\, and gaps between perfect powers. These results rely upon the combinat
ion of bounds for linear forms in logarithms\, p-adic and otherwise\, with
machinery for ternary Diophantine equations based upon the modularity of
Galois representations attached to Frey-Hellegouarch curves. This is joint
work with Samir Siksek\, Adela Gherga\, Vandita Patel and Philippe Michau

DESCRIPTION:Title: Twists of elliptic curves with CM\nby Eugenia Rosu (Bonn and Leiden

n ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nWe consider certain families of sextic twists of
the elliptic curve y^2=x^3+1 that are not defined over Q\, but over Q[sqr
t(-3)]. We compute a formula that relates the central value of their L-fun
ctions L(E\, 1) to the square of a trace of a modular function evaluated a
t a CM point. Assuming the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture\, when the
value above is non-zero\, we should recover the order of the Tate-Shafare
vich group\, and we show that the value is indeed an integer square.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the metric theory of approximations by reduced fractions\nby Chr
istophe Aistleitner (Graz) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Se
ries\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nIn 2019 Dimitris Koukou
lopoulos and James Maynard solved the Duffin-Schaeffer conjecture\, a cent
ral problem in metric Diophantine approximation that had been open since 1
941. Very roughly speaking\, the Koukoulopoulos-Maynard theorem states tha
t there is a simple convergence/divergence criterion which allows to decid
e whether (Lebesgue-)almost all real numbers allow infinitely many coprime
rational approximations of a certain quality\, or not. In this talk I wil
l report on very recent joint work with Bence Borda and Manuel Hauke (both
from TU Graz as well) which goes beyond the existence of infinititely man
y solutions\, and gives an actual asymptotics for the typical number of co
prime rational approximations up to a certain threshold in the divergence
case. I will relate some of the history of the subject\, and try to convey
some of the (probablistic) philosophy behind the problem. The proof relie
s mainly on sieve theory and the "anatomy of integers"\, and in particular
on the method of GCD graphs which was introduced by Koukoulopoulos-Maynar
d in their proof.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: ANNULÉ/CANCEL - Structural refinements of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer co
njecture and Gross-Zagier formula\nby Chan-Ho Kim (KIAS) as part of CR
M-CICMA Québec Vermont Seminar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\
nAbstract\nWe discuss refined applications of (a part of) the Iwasawa main
conjecture for elliptic curves to the non-triviality of Kato's Kolyvagin
systems and the structure of Selmer groups of elliptic curves of arbitrary
rank. The former is the cyclotomic version of Kolyvagin's conjecture and
the latter can be viewed as a structural refinement of Birch and Swinnerto
n-Dyer conjecture. Using the result on the structure of Selmer groups\, we
are able to compare directly the collection of Kurihara numbers\, which i
s the modular symbol version of Kato's Kolyvagin systems\, with Heegner po
int Kolyvagin systems. This comparison itself can be regarded as a structu
ral refinement of Gross-Zagier formula from the viewpoint of Kolyvagin sys
tems.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Wiles-Lenstra-Diamond numerical criterion in higher codimensions\nby Chandrashekhar Khare (UCLA) as part of CRM-CICMA Québec Vermont Sem
inar Series\n\nLecture held in En ligne/Web.\n\nAbstract\nI will report on
recent joint work with Srikanth Iyengar and Jeff Manning. We give a deve
lopment of numerical criterion that was used by Wiles as an essential ingr
edient in his approach to modularity of elliptic curves over $\\Q$. The p
atching method introduced by Wiles and Taylor has been developed considera
bly while the numerical criterion has lagged behind. We prove new commut
ative algebra results that lead to a generalisation of the Wiles-Lenstra-D
iamond numerical criterion in situations of positive defect (as arise when
proving modularity of elliptic curves over number fields with a complex p
lace). A key step in our work is the definition of congruence modules in
higher codimensions which should be relevant to studying eigenvarieties at
classical points.\n
