DESCRIPTION:Title:
Decomposition theorem for semisimple local systems\nby Rujie Yang (Sto
ny Brook) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract
\nIn complex algebraic geometry\, the decomposition theorem asserts that s
emisimple geometric objects remain semisimple after taking direct images u
nder proper algebraic maps. This was conjectured by Kashiwara and is prove
d by Mochizuki and Sabbah in a series of very long papers via harmonic ana
lysis and D-modules. In this talk\, I would like to explain a simpler proo
f in the case of semisimple local systems using a more geometric approach.
This is joint work in progress with Chuanhao Wei.\n

Derivatives of Hida families and rigid meromorphic cocycles\nby Alice
Pozzi (Imperial College London) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Ar
ithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nA rigid meromorphic cocycle is a class in the firs
t cohomology of the group ${\\rm SL}_2(\\mathbb{Z}[1/p])$ acting on the no
n-zero rigid meromorphic functions on the Drinfeld $p$-adic upper half pla
ne by Mobius transformation. Rigid meromorphic cocycles can be evaluated a
t points of real multiplication\, and their values conjecturally lie in th
e ring class field of real quadratic fields\, suggesting striking analogie
s with the classical theory of complex multiplication.\n\nIn this talk\, w
e discuss the relation between the derivatives of certain $p$-adic familie
s of Hilbert modular forms and rigid meromorphic cocycles. We explain how
the study of congruences between cuspidal and Eisenstein families allows u
s to show the algebraicity of the values of a certain rigid meromorphic co
cycle at real multiplication points.\n\nThis is joint work with Henri Darm
on and Jan Vonk.\n

Eisenstein congruences at prime-square level and an application to class n
umbers\nby Jaclyn Lang (Oxford) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry an
d Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nIn Mazur's seminal work on the Eisenstein idea
l\, he showed that when $N$ and $p > 3$ are primes\, there is a weight $2$
cusp form of level $N$ congruent to the unique weight $2$ Eisenstein seri
es of level $N$ if and only if $N = 1$ mod $p$. Calegari--Emerton\, Lecout
urier\, and Wake--Wang-Erickson have work that relates these cuspidal-Eise
nstein congruences to the $p$-part of the class group of $\\mathbb{Q}(N^{1
/p})$. Calegari observed that when $N = -1$ mod $p$\, one can use Galois c
ohomology and some ideas of Wake--Wang-Erickson to show that $p$ divides t
he class group of $\\mathbb{Q}(N^{1/p})$. He asked whether there is a way
to directly construct the relevant degree $p$ everywhere unramified extens
ion of $\\mathbb{Q}(N^{1/p})$ in this case. After discussing some of this
background\, I will report of work in progress with Preston Wake in which
we give a positive answer to this question using cuspidal-Eisenstein congr

DESCRIPTION:Title:
The degree of irrationality of most abelian g-folds is at least 2g\nby
Olivier Martin (Stony Brook) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arit
hmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nThe degree of irrationality of a complex projective
n-dimensional variety X is the minimal degree of a dominant rational map f
rom X to n-dimensional projective space. It is a birational invariant that
measures how far X is from being rational. Accordingly\, one expects the
computation of this invariant in general to be a difficult problem. Alzati
and Pirola showed in 1993 that the degree of irrationality of any abelian
g-fold is at least g+1 using inequalities on holomorphic length. Tokunaga
and Yoshihara later proved that this bound is sharp for abelian surfaces
and Yoshihara asked for examples of abelian surfaces with degree of irrati
onality at least 4. Recently\, Chen and Chen-Stapleton showed that the deg
ree of irrationality of any abelian surface is at most 4. In this work\, I
provide the first examples of abelian surfaces with degree of irrationali
ty 4. In fact\, I show that most abelian g-folds have degree of irrational
ity at least 2g. We will present the proof of the case g=2 and indicate ho
w to obtain the result in general. The argument rests on Mumford's theorem
on rational equivalence of zero-cycles on surfaces with p_g>0 along with
(new?) results on integral Hodge classes on self-products of abelian varie
ties.\n

Moduli spaces of sheaves on moduli spaces of sheaves\nby Nick Addingto
n (University of Oregon) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arithmeti
c\n\n\nAbstract\nIt often happens that if M is a moduli space of vector bu
ndles on a curve C\, then C is also a moduli space of vector bundles on M\
, where the bundles on M come from taking "wrong-way slices" of the the un
iversal bundle on M x C. This story starts in the '70s and is due to Naras
imhan and Ramanan\, Newstead\, and others. Reede and Zhang recently obser
ved that a similar result holds for some Hilbert schemes of points\, and f
or certain moduli spaces of rank-0 sheaves on K3 surfaces. I will discuss
joint work with my student Andrew Wray\, showing that it holds for moduli
spaces of high-rank sheaves on K3 surfaces. Techniques include the Quill

DESCRIPTION:Title: Finiteness and the Tate Conjecture in Codimension 2 for K3 Squares\nb
y Ziquan Yang (Harvard University) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and
Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nTwo years ago\, via a refined CM lifting theory
\, Ito-Ito-Koshikawa proved the Tate Conjecture for squares of K3 surfaces
over finite fields by reducing to Tate's theorem on the endomorphisms of
abelian varieties. I will explain a different proof\, which is based on a
twisted version of Fourier-Mukai transforms between K3 surfaces. In partic
ular\, I do not use Tate's theorem after assuming some known properties of
individual K3's. The main purpose of doing so is to illustrate Tate's ins
ight on the connection between the Tate conjecture and the positivity resu
lts in algebraic geometry for codimension 2 cycles\, through some "geometr
y in cohomological degree 2".\n

ounts the number of ways to write a natural number $n$ as an ordered produ

udy the distribution of $\\tau_3$ in arithmetic progressions $n \\equiv a
(\\text{mod } q).$ The distribution of $\\tau_3$ in arithmetic progression
s has a rich history and has applications to the distribution of prime num
bers and moments of Dirichlet $L$-functions. We show that $\\tau_3$ is equ
idistributed on average for moduli $q$ up to $X^{2/3}$\, extending the ind
ividual estimate of Friedlander and Iwaniec (1985). We will also discuss a
n averaged variance of $\\tau_3$ in arithmetic progressions related to a r

his variance. One of the key inputs to this asymptotic come from a modifie

DESCRIPTION:Title: Brill--Noether theory over the Hurwitz space\nby Isabel Vogt (Univers

nAbstract\nLet C be a curve of genus g. A fundamental problem in the theor
y of algebraic curves is to understand maps of C to projective space of di
mension r of degree d. When the curve C is general\, the moduli space of s
uch maps is well-understood by the main theorems of Brill--Noether theory.
However\, in nature\, curves C are often encountered already equipped wi
th a map to some projective space\, which may force them to be special in
moduli. The simplest case is when C is general among curves of fixed gona
lity. Despite much study over the past three decades\, a similarly comple
te picture has proved elusive in this case. In this talk\, I will discuss
joint work with Eric Larson and Hannah Larson that completes such a pictur
e\, by proving analogs of all of the main theorems of Brill--Noether theor
y in this setting. In the course of our degenerative argument\, we'll exp
loit a close relationship with the combinatorics of the affine symmetric g

DESCRIPTION:Title: Higher Siegel-Weil formulas over function fields\nby Tony Feng (MIT)
as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Sieg
el-Weil formula relates the integral of a theta function along a classical
group H to a special value of a Siegel-Eisenstein series on another group
G. Kudla proposed an "arithmetic analogue" of the Siegel-Weil formula\, r
elating intersection numbers of special cycles on Shimura varieties for H
to the first derivative at a special value of a Siegel-Eisenstein series o
n G. We study a function field analogue of this problem in joint work with
Zhiwei Yun and Wei Zhang. We define special cycles on moduli stacks of un
itary shtukas\, construct associated virtual fundamental classes\, and rel
ate their degrees to the derivatives to *all* orders of Siegel-Eisenstein
series. The results can be seen as “higher derivative” analogues of th
e Kudla-Rapoport Conjecture. A key to the proof is a categorification of l
ocal density formulas for Fourier coefficients of Eisenstein series\, and
a parallel categorification of the degrees of virtual fundamental classes
of special cycles\, in terms of a global variant of Springer theory.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Moduli of Langlands parameters\nby Gill Moss (University of Utah) as
part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nThe local L
anglands correspondence connects representations of p-adic groups to Langl
ands parameters\, which are certain representations of Galois groups of lo
cal fields. In recent work with Dat\, Helm\, and Kurinczuk\, we have shown
that Langlands parameters\, when viewed through the right lens\, occur na
turally within a moduli space over Z[1/p]\, and we can say some things abo
ut the geometry of this moduli space. This geometry should be reflected in
the representation theory of p-adic groups\, on the other side of the loc
al Langlands correspondence. The "local Langlands in families" conjecture
describes the moduli space of Langlands parameters in terms of the center
of the category of representations of the p-adic group-- it was establishe
d for GL(n) in 2018. The goal of the talk is to give an overview of this p
icture\, including current work in-progress\, with some discussion of the

DESCRIPTION:Title: Overconvergent Differential Operators for Hilbert Modular Forms\nby J
on Aycock (University of Oregon) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and A
rithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the 1970's\, Katz constructed p-adic L-functio
ns for CM fields by relating the values of the Dedekind zeta function to t
he values of certain nearly holomorphic Eisenstein series. Crucial in his
construction was the action of the Maass--Shimura differential operators.
Katz's p-adic interpolation of these differential operators is only define
d over the ordinary locus\, which leads to a restriction on what p are all
owed. Recently\, this restriction has been lifted in the case of quadratic
imaginary fields by Andreatta and Iovita using an "overconvergent" analog
of the Maass--Shimura operator for elliptic modular forms. We will give a
n overview of the theory of overconvergent Hilbert modular forms before co
nstructing an "overconvergent" analog of the Maass--Shimura operator for t
his setting.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Intrinsic construction of moduli spaces via affine Grassmannians\nby
Andres Fernandez Herrero (Cornell University) as part of UCSB Seminar on G
eometry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nModuli spaces arise as a geometric w
ay of classifying objects of interest in algebraic geometry. For example\,
there exists a quasiprojective moduli space that parametrizes stable vect
or bundles on a smooth projective curve C. In order to further understand
the geometry of this space\, Mumford constructed a compactification by add
ing a boundary parametrizing semistable vector bundles. If the smooth curv
e C is replaced by a higher dimensional projective variety X\, then one ca
n compactify the moduli problem by allowing vector bundles to degenerate t
o an object known as a "torsion-free sheaf". Gieseker and Maruyama constru
cted moduli spaces of semistable torsion-free sheaves on such a variety X.
More generally\, Simpson proved the existence of moduli spaces of semista
ble pure sheaves supported on smaller subvarieties of X. All of these cons
tructions use geometric invariant theory (GIT).\n\nFor a projective variet
y X\, the moduli problem of coherent sheaves on X is naturally parametrize
d by an algebraic stack M\, which is a geometric object that naturally enc
odes the notion of families of sheaves. In this talk I will explain a GIT-
free construction of the moduli space of Gieseker semistable pure sheaves
which is intrinsic to the moduli stack M. This approach also yields a Hard
er-Narasimhan stratification of the unstable locus of the stack. Our main
technical tools are the theory of Theta-stability introduced by Halpern-Le
istner\, and some recent techniques developed by Alper\, Halpern-Leistner
and Heinloth. In order to apply these results\, one needs to prove some mo
notonicity conditions for a polynomial numerical invariant on the stack. W
e show monotonicity by defining a higher dimensional analogue of the affin
e grassmannian for pure sheaves. I will also explain some applications of
these ideas to other moduli problems. This talk is based on joint work wit
h Daniel Halpern-Leistner and Trevor Jones\, as well as work with Tomas Go
mez and Alfonso Zamora.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Theta cycles\nby Daniel Disegni (BGU) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geom

plicit construction yields a point P in E(Q) that is canonical\, in the fo

elmer groups of E have rank 1.\nI will discuss a partial generalization of
this picture to higher-rank motives M enjoying a `conjugate-symplectic’
symmetry\; examples arise from symmetric products of elliptic curves. The
construction of the “canonical algebraic cycle on M"\, based on works o
f Kudla and Y. Liu\, uses theta series valued in Chow groups of Shimura va
rieties\, and it relies on two very different modularity conjectures. Assu

of reductions of cubic fourfolds as well as reductions of twisted derived

CSB) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geometry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nA w
ell-established technique towards understanding Selmer groups of Galois re
presentations is the construction of an Euler system. One may ask if such
systems can be created for Galois representations that arise in the cohomo
logy of a given Shimura variety. For such purposes\, it is customary to ut
ilize push-forwards of fundamental cycles or Eisenstein classes from sub-S
himura varieties\, and to then establish norm relations between the push-f
orwarded classes involving certain Hecke operators which compute appropria
te automorphic L-factors.\n\nIn this talk\, I will motivate how classical
Euler systems such as Kato's Siegel units and Kolyvagin's Heegner points m
ay be viewed through an axiomatic lens and build up to a general framework
in which norm relations for higher dimensional Shimura varieties may be s
ystematically studied. I will highlight some of the computational challeng
es that arise in higher dimensions and outline a theory of double coset de
compositions due to Lansky that allows one to overcome these challenges. I
n the next talk\, I'll apply these techniques to concrete examples of arit

DESCRIPTION:Title: A unipotent circle action on nearly overconvergent modular forms\nby
Andrew Graham (Université Paris-Saclay) as part of UCSB Seminar on Geomet
ry and Arithmetic\n\n\nAbstract\nRecent work of Howe shows that the action
of the Atkin--Serre operator on p-adic modular forms can be reinterpreted
as a $\\widehat{\\mathbb{G}}_m$ action on the Katz Igusa tower. By p-adic
Fourier theory\, this gives an action of continuous functions on $\\mathb
b{Z}_p$ on sections of the Igusa tower (p-adic modular forms). In this tal
k I will explain how one can ``overconverge'' this action\, i.e. show that
the subspace of nearly overconvergent modular forms is stable under the a
ction of locally analytic functions on $\\mathbb{Z}_p$. This recovers (but
is more general than) the construction of Andreatta--Iovita and has appli
cations to the construction of p-adic L-functions. (Joint work with Vincen
