DESCRIPTION:Title: Torsion points on abelian surfaces with many endomorphisms\nby Ciaran Schembri (Dartmouth College) as part of Sheffield Number The
ory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nIn a cele
brated work Mazur classified which torsion subgroups can occur for ellipti
c curves defined over the rationals. A natural analogue is to consider sur
faces with geometric endomorphisms by a quaternion order\, since the assoc
iated moduli space is 1-dimensional. In this talk I will discuss progress
towards classifying which torsion subgroups are possible for these surface
s. This is joint work (in progress) with Jef Laga\, Ari Shnidman and John
Voight.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Decompositions of the category of $\\ell$-modular representa
tions of $SL_n(F)$\nby Peiyi Cui (University of East Anglia) as part o
f Sheffield Number Theory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\
n\nAbstract\nLet $F$ be a $p$-adic field\, and k an algebraically closed f
ield of characteristic $\\ell$ different from $p$. In this talk\, we will
first give a category decomposition of $Rep_k(SL_n(F))$\, the category of
smooth $k$-representations of $SL_n(F)$\, with respect to the $GL_n(F)$-eq
uivalent supercuspidal classes of $SL_n(F)$\, which is not always a block
decomposition in general. We then give a block decomposition of the superc
uspidal subcategory\, by introducing a partition on each $GL_n(F)$-equival
ent supercuspidal class through type theory\, and we interpret this partit
ion by the sense of $\\ell$-blocks of finite groups. We give an example wh
ere a block of $Rep_k(SL_2(F))$ is defined with respect to several $SL_2(F
)$-equivalent supercuspidal classes\, which is different from the case whe
re $\\ell$ is zero. We end this talk by giving a prediction on the block d
ecomposition of $Rep_k(A)$ for a general $p$-adic group $A$.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tame triple product periods\nby Alice Pozzi (Imperial Co

n J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nA recent conjecture proposed by Harris
and Venkatesh relates the action of derived Hecke operators on the space
of weight one modular forms to certain Stark units. In this talk\, I will
explain how this can be rephrased as a conjecture about "tame" analogues o
f triple product periods for a triple of mod p modular forms of weights (2
\,1\,1). I will then present an elliptic counterpart to this conjecture re
lating a tame triple product period to a regulator for global points of el
liptic curves. This is joint work with Henri Darmon.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Distribution of genus numbers of abelian number fields\n
by Rachel Newton (King's College London) as part of Sheffield Number Theor
y Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nLet K be a
number field and let L/K be an abelian extension. The genus field of L/K i
s the largest extension of L which is unramified at all places of L and ab
elian as an extension of K. The genus group is its Galois group over L\, w
hich is a quotient of the class group of L\, and the genus number is the s
ize of the genus group. We study the quantitative behaviour of genus numbe
rs as one varies over abelian extensions L/K with fixed Galois group. We g
ive an asymptotic formula for the average value of the genus number and sh
ow that any given genus number appears only 0% of the time. This is joint
work with Christopher Frei and Daniel Loughran.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The p-adic Kakeya conjecture\nby Bodan Arsovski (Univers

held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nThe classical Kakeya conjecture
states that all compact subsets of ℝ^n containing a line segment of unit
length in every direction have full Hausdorff dimension. In this talk we
prove the natural analogue of the classical Kakeya conjecture over the p-a
dic numbers — more specifically\, that all compact subsets of ℚ_p^n co
ntaining a line segment of unit length in every direction have full Hausdo
rff dimension — a conjecture which was first discussed in the 1990s by J
ames Wright. More generally\, in this talk we prove the p-adic analogue of
the Kakeya maximal conjecture\, which is a functional version of the Kake
ya conjecture proposed by Jean Bourgain in the 1990s.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Towards a theta correspondence in families for type II dual
pairs\nby Justin Trias (Imperial College London) as part of Sheffield
Number Theory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\
nThis is current work with Gil Moss. The classical local theta corresponde
nce for p-adic reductive dual pairs defines a bijection between prescribed
subsets of irreducible smooth complex representations coming from two gro
ups (H\,H')\, forming a dual pair in a symplectic group. Alberto Mínguez
extended this result for type II dual pairs\, i.e. when (H\,H') is made of
general linear groups\, to representations with coefficients in an algebr
aically closed field of characteristic l as long as the characteristic l d
oes not divide the pro-orders of H and H'. For coefficients rings like Z[1
/p]\, we explain how to build a theory in families for type II dual pairs
that is compatible with reduction to residue fields of the base coefficien
t ring\, where central to this approach is the integral Bernstein centre.
We translate some weaker properties of the classical correspondence\, such
as compatibility with supercuspidal support\, as a morphism between the i
ntegral Bernstein centres of H and H' and interpret it for the Weil repres
entation. In general\, we only know that this morphism is finite though we
may expect it to be surjective. This would result in a closed immersion b
etween the associated affine schemes as well as a correspondence between c
haracters of the Bernstein centre.\n

essentially conjectured by Meyer and Verrill. It was revisited in its pre

ions of Euler factors in a whole pencil of Calabi-Yau threefolds highlight
ed this fibre as one of three overwhelmingly likely to be ``rank-2 attract
ors''. The proof is conditional on the truth of their as yet unproved conj
ecture about the correctness of a certain matrix entering into their compu

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Wiles-Lenstra-Diamond numerical criterion over imaginar
y quadratic fields\nby Jeff Manning (Imperial College London) as part
of Sheffield Number Theory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.
\n\nAbstract\nWiles' modularity lifting theorem was the central argument i
n his proof of modularity of (semistable) elliptic curves over Q\, and hen
ce of Fermat's Last Theorem. His proof relied on two key components: his "
patching" argument (developed in collaboration with Taylor) and his numeri
cal isomorphism criterion.\n\nIn the time since Wiles' proof\, the patchin
g argument has been generalized extensively to prove a wide variety of mod
ularity lifting results. In particular Calegari and Geraghty have found a
way to generalize it to prove potential modularity of elliptic curves over
imaginary quadratic fields (contingent on some standard conjectures). The
numerical criterion on the other hand has proved far more difficult to ge
neralize\, although in situations where it can be used it can prove strong
er results than what can be proven purely via patching.\n\nIn this talk I
will present joint work with Srikanth Iyengar and Chandrashekhar Khare whi
ch proves a generalization of the numerical criterion to the context consi
dered by Calegari and Geraghty (and contingent on the same conjectures). T
his allows us to prove integral "R=T" theorems at non-minimal levels over
imaginary quadratic fields\, which are inaccessible by Calegari and Geragh
ty's method. The results provide new evidence in favor of a torsion analog
of the classical Langlands correspondence.\n

y Johannes Girsch (Sheffield) as part of Sheffield Number Theory Seminar\n
\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nSmooth generic represe
ntations of GL_n(F)\, i.e. representations admitting a nondegenerate Whitt
aker model\, are an important class of representations\, for example in th
e setting of Rankin-Selberg integrals. However\, in recent years there has
been an increased interest in non-generic representations and their degen
erate Whittaker models. By the theory of Bernstein-Zelevinsky derivatives
we can associate to each smooth irreducible representation of GL_n(F) an i
nteger partition of n\, which encodes the "degeneracy" of the representati
on. For each integer partition \\lambda of n\, we then construct a family
of universal degenerate representations of type \\lambda and prove some su
prising properties of these families. This is joint work with David Helm.\

s correspondence (LLC) is a kaleidoscope of conjectures relating local Gal
ois theory\, complex Lie theory\, and representations of p-adic groups. Th
e LLC is divided into two parts: first\, there is the tame or depth-zero p
art\, where much is known and proofs tend to be uniform for all residue ch
aracteristics p. Then there is the positive-depth (or wild) part of the co
rrespondence\, where there is much that still needs to be explored. I will
talk about recent results that build our understanding of this wild part
of the LLC via epipelagic representations and their Langlands parameters.

ified maximal torus of $\\mathrm{GL}_2$. Inspired by work of Loeffler-Skin
ner-Zerbes\, we will introduce certain unramified Hecke modules containing
lattices with deep integral properties. We'll see how this approach recov
ers a Gross-Prasad type multiplicity one result in this unramified setting
and present an integral variant of it with applications to zeta integrals
and automorphic modular forms. Finally\, we will reformulate and answer
a conjecture of Loeffler on integral unramified Hecke operators attached t
o the lattices mentioned above.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Some consequences of mod p multiplicity one for Shimura cur
ves\nby Andrea Dotto (Cambridge) as part of Sheffield Number Theory Se
minar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nThe multiplicit
y of Hecke eigenspaces in the mod p cohomology of Shimura curves is a clas
sical invariant\, which has been computed in significant generality when t
he group is split at p. This talk will focus on the complementary case of
nonsplit quaternion algebras\, and will describe a new multiplicity one re
sult\, as well as some of its consequences regarding the structure of comp
leted cohomology. I will also discuss applications towards the categorical
mod p Langlands correspondence for the nonsplit inner form of GL_2(Q_p).
Part of the talk will comprise a joint work in progress with Bao Le Hung.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Local-global compatibility at l=p for torsion automorphic G
alois representations\nby Bence Hevesi (Kings) as part of Sheffield Nu
mber Theory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nS
ome ten years ago\, Scholze proved the existence of Galois representations
associated with torsion eigenclasses appearing in the cohomology of local
ly symmetric spaces for GL_n over imaginary CM fields. Since then\, the qu
estion of local-global compatibility for these automorphic Galois represen
tations has been an active area of research motivated by applications towa
rds new automorphy lifting theorems. I will report on my work on local-glo
bal compatibility at l=p in this direction\, generalising the results of t
he celebrated 10-author paper and Caraiani—Newton.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Modular Reduction of Nilpotent Orbits\nby Jay Taylor (M
anchester) as part of Sheffield Number Theory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J
-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nSuppose $𝐺_𝕜$ is a (split) connecte
d reductive algebraic $𝕜$-group where $𝕜$ is an algebraically closed
field. If $𝑉_𝕜$ is a $𝐺_𝕜$-module then\, using geometric inva
riant theory\, Kempf has defined the nullcone $𝒩(𝑉_𝕜)$ of $𝑉_
𝕜$. For the Lie algebra $𝔤_𝕜 = Lie(𝐺_𝕜)$\, viewed as a $
𝐺_𝕜$-module via the adjoint action\, we have $𝒩(𝔤_𝕜)$ is pr
ecisely the set of nilpotent elements.\n\nWe may assume that our group $
𝐺_𝕜 = 𝐺 ×_ℤ 𝕜$ is obtained by base-change from a suitable $
ℤ$-form 𝐺. Suppose $𝑉$ is $𝔤 = Lie(G)$ or its dual $𝔤^* = Ho
m(𝔤\, ℤ)$ which are both modules for $𝐺$\, that are free of finite
rank as $ℤ$-modules. Then $𝑉 ⨂_ℤ 𝕜$\, as a module for $𝐺_
𝕜$\, is $𝔤_𝕜$ or $𝔤_𝕜^*$ respectively.\n\nIt is known that
each $𝐺_ℂ$ -orbit $𝒪 ⊆ 𝒩(𝑉_ℂ)$ contains a representative
$ξ ∈ 𝑉$ in the $ℤ$-form. Reducing $ξ$ one gets an element $ξ_
𝕜 ∈ 𝑉_𝕜$ for any algebraically closed $𝕜$. In this talk we w
ill explain ways in which we might want $ξ$ to have “good reduction”
and how one can find elements with these properties. Given time\, we will
also discuss the relationship to Lusztig’s special orbits.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Geometry of the Bianchi eigenvariety at non-cuspidal points
\nby Luis Santiago Palacios (Bordeaux) as part of Sheffield Number The
ory Seminar\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nAn import
ant tool to study automorphic representations in the framework of the Lang
lands program\, is to produce $p$-adic variation. Such variation is captur
ed geometrically in the study of certain "moduli spaces" of p-adic automor
phic forms\, called eigenvarieties.\nIn this talk\, we first introduce Bia
nchi modular forms\, that is\, automorphic forms for $\\mathrm{GL}_2$ over
an imaginary quadratic field\, and then discuss its contribution to the c
ohomology of the Bianchi threefold. After that\, we present the Bianchi ei
genvariety and state our result about its geometry at a special non-cuspid
al point. This is a joint work in progress with Daniel Barrera (Universida
d de Santiago de Chile).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Period polynomials of level 1 Bianchi modular forms\nby
Lewis M Combes (Sheffield) as part of Sheffield Number Theory Seminar\n\n
Lecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nThe period polynomial of
a classical modular form encodes important arithmetic information about t
he form itself\, being made out of critical L-values and connecting to con
gruences via Haberland's formula. In this talk\, we report on work to gene
ralise these connections to the setting of Bianchi modular forms---those o
ver an imaginary quadratic field. We demonstrate explicit congruences betw
een various types of Bianchi modular form\, and show how to detect them us
ing a pairing on period polynomials.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On modular representations of $GL_n$ over a p-adic field\nby Johannes Droschl (Vienna) as part of Sheffield Number Theory Seminar
\n\nLecture held in J-11 Hicks Building.\n\nAbstract\nThe Godement-Jacquet
L-function is a classical invariant attached to irreducible representatio
ns of $GL_n$. Minguez extended their definition to representations over fi
elds of characteristic $\\ell\\neq p$. In this talk we will finish the com
putation of these L-functions for modular representations and check that t
hey agree with the L-function of their respective C-parameter defined by K
urinczuk and Matringe. We approach the problem by extending the theory of
square-irreducible representations\, and their derivatives\, of Lapid and
Minguez to modular representations and applying it to our setting.\n
