DESCRIPTION:Title: Minimal weights of mod p Galois representations\nby Hanneke Wiersema
(King's College London) as part of Queen Mary University of London Algebra
and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe strong form of Serre's conje
cture states that every two-dimensional continuous\, odd\, irreducible mod
p representation of the absolute Galois group of Q arises from a modular
form of a specific minimal weight\, level and character. In this talk we u
se modular representation theory to prove the minimal weight is equal to a
notion of minimal weight inspired by work of Buzzard\, Diamond and Jarvis
. Moreover\, using the Breuil-Mézard conjecture we give a third interpret
ation of this minimal weight as the smallest k>1 such that the representat
ion has a crystalline lift of Hodge-Tate type (0\, k-1). Finally\, we will
report on work in progress where we study similar questions in the more g
eneral setting of mod p Galois representations over a totally real field.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: The McKay—Navarro Conjecture: The Conjecture That Keeps on Giving!\
nby Mandi Schaeffer Fry (Metropolitan State University of Denver) as part
of Queen Mary University of London Algebra and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\n
Abstract\nThe McKay conjecture is one of the main open conjectures in the
realm of the local-global philosophy in character theory. It posits a bij
ection between the set of irreducible characters of a group with p’-degr
ee and the corresponding set in the normalizer of a Sylow p-subgroup. In t
his talk\, I’ll give an overview of a refinement of the McKay conjecture
due to Gabriel Navarro\, which brings the action of Galois automorphisms
into the picture. A lot of recent work has been done on this conjecture\,
but possibly even more interesting is the amount of information it yields
about the character table of a finite group. I’ll discuss some recent
results on the McKay—Navarro conjecture\, as well as some of the implica
tions the conjecture has had for other interesting character-theoretic pro
blems.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Theta functions\, fourth moments of eigenforms and the sup-norm problem\nby Paul Nelson (ETH Zurich) as part of Queen Mary University of London
Algebra and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will discuss joint wor
k with Raphael Steiner and Ilya Khayutin in which we study the sup norm pr
oblem for GL(2) eigenforms in the squarefree level aspect. Unlike the sta
ndard approach to the problem via arithmetic amplification following Iwani
ec--Sarnak\, we apply a method\, introduced earlier in other aspects by my
collaborators\, which consists of identifying a fourth moment over a fami
ly of eigenforms evaluated at the point of interest with the L^2-norm of a
theta function defined using the correspondence of Eichler\, Shimizu and
Jacquet--Langlands. After solving some counting problems (involving both
"linear" sums as in traditional approaches and new "bilinear" sums)\, we o
btain a bound comparable to the fourth root of the volume\, improving upon
the trivial square root bound and the nontrivial cube root bound establis
hed by Harcos--Templier and Blomer--Michel. I will describe the proof in
the simplest case.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Oddness of limits of automorphic Galois representations\nby Tobias Be
rger (University of Sheffield) as part of Queen Mary University of London
Algebra and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor classical modular for
ms f one knows that the associated Galois representation $\\rho_f:G_{\\mat
hbf{Q}} \\to {\\rm GL}_2(\\overline{\\mathbf{Q}}_p)$ is odd\, in the sense
that ${\\rm det}(\\rho(c))=-1$ for any complex conjugation $c$.\n\nThere
is a similar parity notion for n-dimensional Galois representations which
are essentially conjugate self-dual. In joint work with Ariel Weiss (Hebre
w University) we prove that the Galois representations associated to certa
in irregular automorphic representations of U(a\,b) are odd\, generalizing
a result of Bellaiche-Chenevier in the regular case. \n\nI will explain o
ur result and discuss its proof\, which uses V. Lafforgue's notion of pseu
docharacters and invariant theory.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Counting cuspidal automorphic representations of GSp(4)\nby Manami R
oy (Fordham University) as part of Queen Mary University of London Algebra
and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThere is a well-known connection
between the Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and the automorphic represen
tations of GSp(4). Using this relationship and the available dimension for
mulas for the spaces of Siegel cusp forms of degree 2\, we count a specifi
c set of cuspidal automorphic representations of GSp(4). Consequently\, we
obtain an equidistribution result for a family of cuspidal automorphic re
presentations of GSp(4). This kind of equidistribution result is analogous
to the so-called vertical Sato-Tate conjecture for GL(2). The method of c
ounting automorphic representations is also helpful for computing dimensio
ns of some spaces of Siegel cusp forms\, which are not yet known. The talk
is based on a joint work with Ralf Schmidt and Shaoyun Yi.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Arithmetic group cohomology with generalised coefficients\nby Jun Su
(Cambridge University) as part of Queen Mary University of London Algebra
and Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nCohomology of arithmetic subgrou
ps\, with algebraic representations as coefficients\, has played an import
ant role in the construction of Langlands correspondence. Traditionally th
e first step to access these objects is to view them as cohomology of shea
ves on locally symmetric spaces and hence connect them with spaces of func
tions. However\, sometimes infinite dimensional coeffients also naturallhy
arise\, e.g. when you try to attach elliptic curves to weight 2 eigenform
s on GL_2/an imaginary cubic field\, and the sheaf theoretic viewpoint mig
ht no longer be fruitful. In this talk we'll explain a very simple alterna
tive understanding of the connection between arithmetic group cohomology (
with finite dimensional coefficients) and function spaces\, and discuss it
s application to infinite dimensional coefficients.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Characteristic sets of matroids\nby Dustin Cartwright (University of
Tennessee) as part of Queen Mary University of London Algebra and Number
Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA matroid is a combinatorial abstraction of
the types of dependence relations that appear both as linear dependence in
vector spaces and algebraic dependence in field extensions. As not all ma
troids can be realized in either of these ways\, we can define the linear
and algebraic characteristic sets of a matroid as the set characteristics
of fields over which the matroid is realizable in a vector space or field
extension\, respectively. The focus of my talk will be the possible charac
teristic sets of matroids. An important tool will be the construction of a
lgebraic matroids from the ring of endomorphisms of a 1-dimensional connec
ted algebraic group. This is joint work with Dony Varghese.\n
