DESCRIPTION:Title: Conjectures in Iwasawa Theory of Selmer groups and Iwasawa Algebras\n
by Jishnu Ray (University of British Columbia) as part of UCSD number theo
ry seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Iwasawa Theory of Selmer groups provides a n
atural way for p-adic approach to the celebrated Birch and Swinnerton Dyer
conjecture. Over a non-commutative p-adic Lie extension\, the (dual) Selm
er group becomes a module over a non-commutative Iwasawa algebra and its s
tructure can be understood by analyzing “(left) reflexive ideals” in t
he Iwasawa algebra. In this talk\, we will start by recalling several exis
ting conjectures in Iwasawa Theory and then we will give an explicit ring-
theoretic presentation\, by generators and relations\, of such Iwasawa alg
ebras and sketch its implications in understanding the (two-sides) reflexi
ve ideals. Generalizing Clozel’s work for SL(2)\, we will also show that
such an explicit presentation of Iwasawa algebras can be obtained for a m
uch wider class of p-adic Lie groups viz. uniform pro-p groups and the pro
-p Iwahori of GL(n\,Z_p). Further\, if time permits\, I will also sketch s
ome of my recent Iwasawa theoretic results joint with Sujatha Ramdorai.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Title: The integral geometric Satake equivalence in mixed characteristic\nby
Jize Yu (California Institute of Technology) as part of UCSD number theor
y seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 7321.\n\nAbstract\nThe geometric Satake e
quivalence establishes a link between two monoidal categories: the categor
y of perverse sheaves on the local Hecke stack and the category of finitel
y generated representations of the Langlands dual group. It has many impor
tant applications in the study of the geometric Langlands program and numb
er theory. In this talk\, I will discuss the integral coefficient geometri
c Satake equivalence in the mixed characteristic setting. It generalizes t
he previous results of Lusztig\, Ginzburg\, Mirkovic-Vilonen\, and Zhu. Ti
me permitting\, I will discuss an application of this result in constructi
ng a Jacquet-Langlands transfer.\n\nThere will be a pretalk.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Symmetric power functoriality for holomorphic modular forms\nby Jack
Thorne (Cambridge University) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLec
ture held in APM 7321.\n\nAbstract\nLanglands’s functoriality conjecture
s predict the existence of “liftings” of automorphic representations a
long morphisms of L-groups. A basic case of interest comes from the irredu
cible algebraic representations of GL(2)\, thought of as the L-group of th
e reductive group GL(2) over Q. I will discuss the proof\, joint with Jame
s Newton\, of the existence of the corresponding functorial liftings for
a broad class of holomorphic modular forms\, including Ramanujan’s Delta
function.\n\nThere will be a pre-talk.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A derived Hecke action on the ordinary Hida tower\nby Niccolo Ronchet
ti (University of California\, Los Angeles) as part of UCSD number theory
seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 7321.\n\nAbstract\nWhen studying the cohomo
logy of Shimura varieties and arithmetic manifolds\, one encounters the fo
llowing phenomenon: the same Hecke eigensystem shows up in multiple degree
s around the middle dimension\, and its multiplicities in these degrees re
sembles that of an exterior algebra.\n\nIn a series of recent papers\, Ven
katesh and his collaborators provide an explanation: they construct graded
objects having a graded action on the cohomology\, and show that under go
od circumstances this action factors through that of an explicit exterior
algebra\, which in turn acts faithfully and generate the entire Hecke eige
nspace.\n\nIn this talk\, we discuss joint work with Khare where we invest
igate the $p=p$ situation (as opposed to the $l \\neq p$ situation\, which
is the main object of study of Venkatesh’s Derived Hecke Algebra paper)
: we construct a degree-raising action on the cohomology of the ordinary H
ida tower and show that (under some technical assumptions)\, this action g
enerates the full Hecke eigenspace under its lowest nonzero degree. Then\,
we bring Galois representations into the picture\, and show that the deri
ved Hecke action constructed before is in fact related to the action of a
certain dual Selmer group.\n\nThere will be a pre-talk.\n

curve $X$\, we prove that the $q$-adic Newton slopes of $Z(X_n\,s)/Z(X\,s
)$ approach a uniform distribution in the interval $[0\,1]$\, confirming a
conjecture of Daqing Wan. We also prove a ``Riemann hypothesis'' for a fa
mily of Galois representations associated to $X_\\infty/X$\, analogous to
the Riemann hypothesis for equicharacteristic $L$-series as posed by Davi

n\, whose global root number is -1. We show that\, under some restrictions
on the ramification of \\pi\, if the central derivative L'(1/2\,\\pi) is

p of a certain unitary Shimura variety over its reflex field does not vani

d L-functions. Moreover\, assuming the modularity of Kudla's generating fu

\\pi-nearly isotypic subspace of the Chow group by arithmetic theta liftin
g\, and compute their heights in terms of the central derivative L'(1/2\,\

to $v$-adic $L$-values\nby Kwun Angus Chung (University of Michigan)
as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in normally APM 7321
\, currently online.\n\nAbstract\nClassically over the rational numbers\,
the exponential and logarithm series converge $p$-adically within some ope
n disc of $\\mathbb{C}_p$. For function fields\, exponential and logarithm
series arise naturally from Drinfeld modules\, which are objects construc
ted by Drinfeld in his thesis to prove the Langlands conjecture for $\\mat
hrm{GL}_2$ over function fields. For a "finite place" $v$ on such a curve\
, one can ask if the exp and log possess similar $v$-adic convergence prop
erties. For the most basic case\, namely that of the Carlitz module over $
\\mathbb{F}_q[T]$\, this question has been long understood. In this talk\,
we will show the $v$-adic convergence for Drinfeld-(Hayes) modules on ell

$\\{\\rho_p\\}_{p \\\; \\mathrm{prime}}$. For $p$ sufficiently large\, the

irreducible scheme over a finite field of characteristic $p > 0$. With res
pect to rigid cohomology\, $p$-adic coefficient objects on $X$ come in two
types: convergent $F$-isocrystals and the subcategory of overconvergent $
F$-isocrystals. Overconvergent isocrystals are related to $\\ell$-adic eta
le objects ($\\ell\\neq p$) via companions theory\, and as such it is desi
rable to understand when an isocrystal is overconvergent. We show (under a
geometric tameness hypothesis) that a convergent $F$-isocrystal $E$ is ov
erconvergent if and only if its restriction to all smooth curves on $X$ is
. The technique reduces to an algebraic setting where we use skeleton shea

DESCRIPTION:Title: Counting level-1\, quaternionic automorphic representations on $G_2$
\nby Rahul Dalal (Johns Hopkins) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\n
Lecture held in APM 7321 and online.\n\nAbstract\nQuaternionic automorphic
representations are one attempt to generalize to other groups the special
place holomorphic modular forms have among automorphic representations of
$GL_2$. Like holomorphic modular forms\, they are defined by having their
real component be one of a particularly nice class (in this case\, called
quaternionic discrete series). We count quaternionic automorphic represen
tations on the exceptional group $G_2$ by developing a $G_2$ version of th
e classical Eichler-Selberg trace formula for holomorphic modular forms. \
n\nThere are two main technical difficulties. First\, quaternionic discret
e series come in L-packets with non-quaternionic members and standard inva
riant trace formula techniques cannot easily distinguish between discrete
series with real component in the same L-packet. Using the more modern sta
ble trace formula resolves this issue. Second\, quaternionic discrete seri
es do not satisfy a technical condition of being "regular"\, so the trace
formula can a priori pick up unwanted contributions from automorphic repre
sentations with non-tempered components at infinity. Applying some computa
tions of Mundy\, this miraculously does not happen for our specific case o
f quaternionic representations on $G_2$. \n\nFinally\, we are only studyin
g level-1 forms\, so we can apply some tricks of Chenevier and Taïbi to r
educe the problem to counting representations on the compact form of $G_2$
and certain pairs of modular forms. This avoids involved computations on
the geometric side of the trace formula.\n\n30 min pre-talk before\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Compatibility of the Fargues-Scholze and Gan-Takeda local Langlands\
nby Linus Hamann (Princeton) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLect
ure held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nGiven a prime $p$\, a finite
extension $L/\\mathbb{Q}_{p}$\, a connected $p$-adic reductive group $G/L
$\, and a smooth irreducible representation $\\pi$ of $G(L)$\, Fargues-Sch
olze recently attached a semisimple Weil parameter to such $\\pi$\, giving
a general candidate for the local Langlands correspondence. It is natural
to ask whether this construction is compatible with known instances of th
e correspondence after semisimplification. For $G = GL_{n}$ and its inner
forms\, Fargues-Scholze and Hansen-Kaletha-Weinstein show that the corres
pondence is compatible with the correspondence of Harris-Taylor/Henniart.
We verify a similar compatibility for $G = GSp_{4}$ and its unique non-spl
it inner form $G = GU_{2}(D)$\, where $D$ is the quaternion division algeb
ra over $L$\, assuming that $L/\\mathbb{Q}_{p}$ is unramified and $p > 2$.
In this case\, the local Langlands correspondence has been constructed by
Gan-Takeda and Gan-Tantono. Analogous to the case of $GL_{n}$ and its inn
er forms\, this compatibility is proven by describing the Weil group actio
n on the cohomology of a local Shimura variety associated to $GSp_{4}$\, u
sing basic uniformization of abelian type Shimura varieties due to Shen\,
combined with various global results of Kret-Shin and Sorensen on Galois r
epresentations in the cohomology of global Shimura varieties associated to
inner forms of $GSp_{4}$ over a totally real field. After showing the par
ameters are the same\, we apply some ideas from the geometry of the Fargue
s-Scholze construction explored recently by Hansen\, to give a more precis
e description of the cohomology of this local Shimura variety\, verifying
a strong form of the Kottwitz conjecture in the process.\n\npre-talk at 1:

DESCRIPTION:Title: Untilting Line Bundles on Perfectoid Spaces\nby Gabriel Dorfsman-Hop
kins (UC Berkeley) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held i
n APM 7321 and online.\n\nAbstract\nLet $X$ be a perfectoid space with til
t $X^\\flat$. We build a natural map $\\theta:\\Pic X^\\flat\\to\\lim\\Pi
c X$ where the (inverse) limit is taken over the $p$-power map\, and show
that $\\theta$ is an isomorphism if $R = \\Gamma(X\,\\sO_X)$ is a perfecto
id ring. As a consequence we obtain a characterization of when the Picard
groups of $X$ and $X^\\flat$ agree in terms of the $p$-divisibility of $\
\Pic X$. The main technical ingredient is the vanishing of higher derived
limits of the unit group $R^*$\, whence the main result follows from the
Grothendieck spectral sequence.\n\npre-talk at 1:20pm\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Newton Polygons of Abelian $L$-Functions on Curves\nby James Upton (
UC San Diego) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in APM
7321 and online.\n\nAbstract\nLet $X$ be a smooth\, affine\, geometricall
y connected curve over a finite field of characteristic $p > 2$. Let $\\rh
o:\\pi_1(X) \\to \\mathbb{C}^\\times$ be a character of finite order $p^n$
. If $\\rho\\neq 1$\, then the Artin $L$-function $L(\\rho\,s)$ is a polyn
omial\, and a theorem of Kramer-Miller states that its $p$-adic Newton pol
ygon $\\mathrm{NP}(\\rho)$ is bounded below by a certain Hodge polygon $\\
mathrm{HP}(\\rho)$ which is defined in terms of local monodromy invariants
. In this talk we discuss the interaction between the polygons $\\mathrm{N
P}(\\rho)$ and $\\mathrm{HP}(\\rho)$. Our main result states that if $X$ i
s ordinary\, then $\\mathrm{NP}(\\rho)$ and $\\mathrm{HP}(\\rho)$ share a
vertex if and only if there is a corresponding vertex shared by certain "l
ocal" Newton and Hodge polygons associated to each ramified point of $\\rh
o$. As an application\, we give a local criterion that is necessary and su
fficient for $\\mathrm{NP}(\\rho)$ and $\\mathrm{HP}(\\rho)$ to coincide.
This is joint work with Joe Kramer-Miller.\n\npre-talk at 1:20pm\n

Abstract\nThe theory of local theta correspondence is built up from two ma
in ingredients: a reductive dual pair inside a symplectic group\, and a We
il representation of its metaplectic cover. Exceptional correspondences ar
ise similarly: dual pairs inside exceptional groups can be constructed usi
ng so-called Freudenthal Jordan algebras\, while the minimal representatio
n provides a suitable replacement for the Weil representation. The talk wi
ll begin by recalling these constructions. Focusing on a particular dual p
air\, we will explain how one obtains Howe duality for the correspondence
in question. Finally\, we will discuss applications of these results. The
new work in this talk is joint with Gordan Savin.\n\npre-talk at 1:30pm\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lattice Enumeration for Tower NFS: a 521-bit Discrete Logarithm Computat
ion\nby Gabrielle De Micheli (UCSD) as part of UCSD number theory semi
nar\n\nLecture held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nThe Tower variant
of the Number Field Sieve (TNFS) is known to be asymptotically the most e
fficient algorithm to solve the discrete logarithm problem in finite field
s of medium characteristics\, when the extension degree is composite. A ma
jor obstacle to an efficient implementation of TNFS is the collection of a
lgebraic relations\, as it happens in dimensions greater than 2. This requ
ires the construction of new sieving algorithms which remain efficient as
the dimension grows. In this talk\, I will present how we overcome this d
ifficulty by considering a lattice enumeration algorithm which we adapt to
this specific context. We also consider a new sieving area\, a high-dimen
sional sphere\, whereas previous sieving algorithms for the classical NFS
considered an orthotope. Our new sieving technique leads to a much smaller
running time\, despite the larger dimension of the search space\, and eve
n when considering a larger target\, as demonstrated by a record computati
on we performed in a 521-bit finite field GF(p^6). The target finite field
is of the same form as finite fields used in recent zero-knowledge proofs
in some blockchains. This is the first reported implementation of TNFS.\n
\nIn the pre-talk\, I will briefly present the core ideas of the quadratic
sieve algorithm and its evolution to the Number Field Sieve algorithm.\n\

uadratic fields. We define a particular modular form of weight $1/2$ on $G
_2$\, and prove that its Fourier coefficients see (certain torsors for) th
e 2-torsion in the narrow class groups of totally real cubic fields. In pa
rticular: 1) we define a notion of modular forms of half-integral weight o
n certain exceptional groups\, 2) we prove that these modular forms have a

DESCRIPTION:Title: Two-variable polynomials with dynamical Mahler measure zero\nby Anni
e Carter (UCSD) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIntro
duced by Lehmer in 1933\, the classical Mahler measure of a complex ration
al function $P$ in one or more variables is given by integrating $\\log|P(
x_1\, \\ldots\, x_n)|$ over the unit torus. Lehmer asked whether the Mahle
r measures of integer polynomials\, when nonzero\, must be bounded away fr
om zero\, a question that remains open to this day. In this talk we genera
lize Mahler measure by associating it with a discrete dynamical system $f:
\\mathbb{C} \\to \\mathbb{C}$\, replacing the unit torus by the $n$-fold
Cartesian product of the Julia set of $f$ and integrating with respect to
the equilibrium measure on the Julia set. We then characterize those two-v
ariable integer polynomials with dynamical Mahler measure zero\, condition
al on a dynamical version of Lehmer's conjecture.\n

phir (Hebrew U.) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in
online.\n\nAbstract\nMotivated by questions about a p-adic Fourier transfo
rm\, we study invariant norms on the p-adic Schrödinger representations o
f Heisenberg groups. These Heisenberg groups are p-adic\, and the Schrodin
ger representations are explicit irreducible smooth representations that p
lay an important role in their representation theory. \nClassically\, the
field of coefficients is taken to be the complex numbers and\, among other
things\, one studies the unitary completions of the representations (whic
h are well understood). By taking the field of coefficients to be an exten
sion of the p-adic numbers\, we can consider completions that better captu
re the p-adic topology\, but at the cost of losing the Haar measure and th
e $L^2$-norm. Nevertheless\, we establish a rigidity property for a family
of norms (parametrized by a Grassmannian) that are invariant under the ac
tion of the Heisenberg group.\nThe irreducibility of some Banach represent
ations follows as a result. The proof uses "q-arithmetics".\n\npre-talk\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Iterating Backwards in Arithmetic Dynamics\nby Michelle Manes (U. Ha
waii) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 6402 an
d online.\n\nAbstract\nIn classical real and complex dynamics\, one studie
s topological and analytic properties of orbits of points under iteration
of self-maps of $\\mathbb R$ or $\\mathbb C$ (or more generally self-maps
of a real or complex manifold). In arithmetic dynamics\, a more recent sub
ject\, one likewise studies properties of orbits of self-maps\, but with a
number theoretic flavor. Many of the motivating problems in arithmetic dy
namics come via analogy with classical problems in arithmetic geometry: ra
tional and integral points on varieties correspond to rational and integra
l points in orbits\; torsion points on abelian varieties correspond to per
iodic and preperiodic points of rational maps\; and abelian varieties with
complex multiplication correspond to post-critically finite rational maps
.\n\nThis analogy focuses on forward iteration\, but sometimes surprising
and interesting results can be found by thinking instead about pre-images
of rational points under iteration. In this talk\, we will give some backg
round and motivation for the field of arithmetic dynamics in order to desc
ribe some of these "backwards iteration" results\, including uniform bound
edness for rational pre-images and open image results for Galois represent
ations associated to dynamical systems.\n\nA pre-talk for graduate student
s will describe some of the motivating results in arithmetic geometry.\n

$ and $r\\geq1$ be integers and $p\\geq2$ be a prime such that $p\\nmid N$
. One can consider two different integral structures on the space of modul
ar forms over $\\mathbb{Q}$\, one coming from arithmetic via $q$-expansion
s\, the other coming from geometry via integral models of modular curves.
Both structures are stable under the Hecke operators\; furthermore\, their
quotient is finite torsion. Our goal is to investigate the exponent of th
e annihilator of the quotient. We will apply results due to Brian Conrad t
o the situation of modular forms of even weight and level $\\Gamma(Np^{r})
$ over $\\mathbb{Q}_{p}(\\zeta_{Np^{r}})$ to obtain an upper bound for the
exponent. We also use Klein forms to construct explicit modular forms of
level $p^{r}$ whenever $p^{r}>3$\, allowing us to compute a lower bound wh

6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\n(Joint with Stefan Patrikis.) In this talk\
, we discuss a strong form of independence of $\\ell$ for canonical $\\ell
$-adic local systems on Shimura varieties\, and sketch a proof of this for
Shimura varieties arising from adjoint groups whose simple factors have r
eal rank $\\geq 2$. Notably\, this includes all adjoint Shimura varieties
which are not of abelian type. The key tools used are the existence of com
panions for $\\ell$-adic local systems and the superrigidity theorem of Ma
rgulis for lattices in Lie groups of real rank $\\geq 2$. \n\nThe indepen
dence of $\\ell$ is motivated by a conjectural description of Shimura vari
eties as moduli spaces of motives. For certain Shimura varieties that aris
e as a moduli space of abelian varieties\, the strong independence of $\\e
ll$ is proven (at the level of Galois representations) by recent work of K

, this $p$-adic Maass--Shimura operator is only defined over the ordinary
locus\, which restricted Katz's choice of $p$ to one that splits in the CM
field. In 2021\, Andreatta and Iovita extended Katz's construction to all
$p$ for quadratic imaginary fields using overconvergent differential oper

usiru Gambheera Arachchige (UCSD) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\
nLecture held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nIn 2015 Greither and Po
pescu constructed a new class of Iwasawa modules\, which are the number fi
eld analogues of $p-$adic realizations of Picard 1- motives constructed by
Deligne. They proved an equivariant main conjecture by computing the Fitt
ing ideal of these new modules over the appropriate profinite group ring.
This is an integral\, equivariant refinement of Wiles' classical main conj
ecture. As a consequence they proved a refinement of the Brumer-Stark conj
ecture away from 2. All of the above was proved under the assumption that
the relevant prime $p$ is odd and that the appropriate classical Iwasawa $
\\mu$–invariants vanish. Recently\, Dasgupta and Kakde proved the Brumer
-Stark conjecture\, away from 2\, unconditionally\, using a generalization
of Ribet's method. We use the Dasgupta-Kakde results to prove an uncondit
ional equivariant main conjecture\, which is a generalization of that of G
reither and Popescu. As applications of our main theorem we prove a genera
lization of a certain case of the main result of Dasgupta-Kakde and we com
pute the Fitting ideal of a certain naturally arising Iwasawa module. This
is joint work with Cristian Popescu.\n\npre-talk at 1:20\n

and suppose $G$ is the unitary group attached to hermitian space over $E$
of signature $(2\,n)$. The symmetric domain $X$ attached to $G$ is a quate
rnionic Kahler manifold. In the late nineties N. Wallach studied harmonic
analysis on $X$ in the context of this quaternionic structure. He establis
hed a multiplicity one theorem for spaces of generalized Whittaker periods
appearing in the cohomology of certain $G$-bundles on $X$. \n\nWe prove a
n analogous multiplicity one statement for some degenerate generalized Whi
ttaker periods and give explicit formulas for these periods in terms of mo
dified K-Bessel functions. Our results give a refinement of the Fourier ex
pansion of certain automorphic forms on $G$ which are quaternionic discret
e series at infinity. As an application\, we study the Fourier expansion o
f cusp forms on $G$ which arise as theta lifts of holomorphic modular form
s on quasi-split $\\mathrm{U}(1\,1)$. We show that these cusp forms can be
normalized so that all their Fourier coefficients are algebraic numbers.

ere are reasons to wonder whether this divisibility can also hold for the
image in intermediate cohomology. Using “intermediate” Coleman maps\,

Lecture held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\n$p$-adic representations
are important objects in number theory\, and stable lattices serve as a c

stable lattices can be understood as stable vertices in Bruhat-Tits build
ings. From this viewpoint\, the study of fixed point sets in these buildin
gs can aid research on $p$-adic representations. The simplicial distance h
olds an important role as it connects the combinatorics of lattices and th

Prasad subgroups are precisely the simplicial balls. In this talk\, I'll e

DESCRIPTION:Title: Fast Practical Lattice Reduction through Iterated Compression\nby Ke
egan Ryan (UC San Diego) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture
held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nWe introduce a new lattice basis
reduction algorithm with approximation guarantees analogous to the LLL al
gorithm and practical performance that far exceeds the current state of th
e art. We achieve these results by iteratively applying precision manageme
nt techniques within a recursive algorithm structure and show the stabilit
y of this approach. We analyze the asymptotic behavior of our algorithm\,
and show that the heuristic running time is $O(n^{\\omega}(C+n)^{1+\\varep
silon})$ for lattices of dimension $n$\, $\\omega\\in (2\,3]$ bounding the
cost of size reduction\, matrix multiplication\, and QR factorization\, a
nd $C$ bounding the log of the condition number of the input basis $B$. Th
is yields a running time of $O\\left(n^\\omega (p + n)^{1 + \\varepsilon}\
\right)$ for precision $p = O(\\log \\|B\\|_{max})$ in common applications
. Our algorithm is fully practical\, and we have published our implementat
ion. We experimentally validate our heuristic\, give extensive benchmarks
against numerous classes of cryptographic lattices\, and show that our alg
orithm significantly outperforms existing implementations.\n\npre-talk at

bstract\nZeta and L-functions are ubiquitous in modern number theory. Whil
e some work in the past has brought homotopical methods into the theory of
zeta functions\, there is in fact a lesser-known zeta function that is na
tive to homotopy theory. Namely\, every suitably finite decomposition spac
e (aka 2-Segal space) admits an abstract zeta function as an element of it
s incidence algebra. In this talk\, I will show how many 'classical' zeta
functions in number theory and algebraic geometry can be realized in this
homotopical framework. I will also discuss work in progress towards a cate
gorification of motivic zeta and L-functions.\n\npre-talk at 1:20pm\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ribet’s Lemma\, the Brumer-Stark Conjecture\, and the Main Conjecture<
/a>\nby Samit Dasgupta (Duke) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLec
ture held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nIn 1976\, Ken Ribet used mo
dular techniques to prove an important relationship between class groups o
f cyclotomic fields and special values of the zeta function. Ribet’s me
thod was generalized to prove the Iwasawa Main Conjecture for odd primes p
by Mazur-Wiles over Q and by Wiles over arbitrary totally real fields. \
n\nCentral to Ribet’s technique is the construction of a nontrivial exte
nsion of one Galois character by another\, given a Galois representation s
atisfying certain properties. Throughout the literature\, when working in
tegrally at p\, one finds the assumption that the two characters are not c
ongruent mod p. For instance\, in Wiles’ proof of the Main Conjecture\,
it is assumed that p is odd precisely because the relevant characters mig
ht be congruent modulo 2\, though they are necessarily distinct modulo any
odd prime.\n\nIn this talk I will present a proof of Ribet’s Lemma in t
he case that the characters are residually indistinguishable. As arithmet
ic applications\, one obtains a proof of the Iwasawa Main Conjecture for t
otally real fields at p=2. Moreover\, we complete the proof of the Brumer
-Stark conjecture by handling the localization at p=2\, building on joint
work with Mahesh Kakde for odd p. Our results yield the full Equivariant
Tamagawa Number conjecture for the minus part of the Tate motive associate
d to a CM abelian extension of a totally real field\, which has many impor

DESCRIPTION:Title: Slopes of modular forms and geometry of eigencurves\nby Nha Truong (
Hawaii) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 6402

ations of the eigenvalues of the Hecke operators $T_p$. The study of slope
s plays an important role in understanding the geometry of the eigencurves
\, introduced by Coleman and Mazur. \n\nThe study of the slope began in th
e 1990s when Gouvea and Mazur computed many numerical data and made severa
l interesting conjectures. Later\, Buzzard\, Calegari\, and other people m
ade more precise conjectures by studying the space of overconvergent modul
ar forms. Recently\, Bergdall and Pollack introduced the ghost conjecture
that unifies the previous conjectures in most cases. The ghost conjecture
states that the slope can be predicted by an explicitly defined power seri
es. We prove the ghost conjecture under a certain mild technical condition
. In the pre-talk\, I will explain an example in the quaternionic setting
which was used as a testing ground for the proof. \nThis is joint work wit

(UC San Diego) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in A
PM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nQuaternionic modular forms (QMFs) on the
split exceptional group G_2 are a special class of automorphic functions o
n this group\, whose origin goes back to work of Gross-Wallach and Gan-Gro
ss-Savin. While the group G_2 does not possess any holomorphic modular fo
rms\, the quaternionic modular forms seem to be able to be a good substitu
te. In particular\, QMFs on G_2 possess a semi-classical Fourier expansio
n and Fourier coefficients\, just like holomorphic modular forms on Shimur
a varieties. I will explain the proof that the cuspidal QMFs of even weig
ht at least 6 admit an arithmetic structure: there is a basis of the space
of all such cusp forms\, for which every Fourier coefficient of every ele
ment of this basis lies in the cyclotomic extension of Q.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Dagger groups and $p$-adic distribution algebras\nby Aranya Lahiri
(UC San Diego) as part of UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in AP
M 7321.\n\nAbstract\nLocally analytic representations were introduced by P
eter Schneider and Jeremy Teitelbaum as a tool to understand $p$-adic Lang
lands program. From the very beginning the theory of $p$-valued groups pla
yed an instrumental role in the study of locally analytic representations.
In a previous work we attached a rigid analytic group to a $\\textit{$p$
-saturated group}$ (a class of $p$-valued groups that contains uniform pro
-$p$ groups and pro-$p$ Iwahori subgroups as examples). In this talk I wil
l outline how to elevate the rigid group to a $\\textit{dagger group}$\, a
group object in the category of dagger spaces as introduced by Elmar Gros
se-Klönne. I will further introduce the space of $\\textit{overconvergent
functions}$ and its strong dual the $\\textit{overconvergent distribution
algebra}$ on such a group. Finally I will show that in analogy to the loc
ally analytic distribution algebra of compact $p$-adic groups\, in the cas
e of uniform pro-$p$ groups the overconvergent distribution algebra is a F
r´echet-Stein algebra\, i.e.\, it is equipped with a desirable algebraic
structure. This is joint work with Claus Sorensen and Matthias Strauch.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Algebraic and p-adic aspects of L-functions\, with a view toward Spin L
-functions for GSp_6\nby Ellen Eischen (Oregon) as part of UCSD number
theory seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 6402 and online.\n\nAbstract\nI wil
l discuss recent developments and ongoing work for\nalgebraic and p-adic a
spects of L-functions. Interest in p-adic\nproperties of values of L-funct
ions originated with Kummer’s study of\ncongruences between values of th
e Riemann zeta function at negative odd\nintegers\, as part of his attempt
to understand class numbers of\ncyclotomic extensions. After presenting a
n approach to studying\nanalogous congruences for more general classes of
L-functions\, I will\nconclude by introducing ongoing joint work of G. Ros
so\, S. Shah\, and\nmyself (concerning Spin L-functions for GSp_6). I will
explain how this\nwork fits into the context of earlier developments\, wh
ile also\nindicating where new technical challenges arise. All who are cur
ious\nabout this topic are welcome at this talk\, even without prior exper
ience\nwith p-adic L-functions or Spin L-functions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Local systems on Shimura varieties\nby Christian Klevdal (UC San Di

online.\n\nAbstract\nA large area of modern number theory (the Langlands
program) studies a deep correspondence between the representation theory o
f Galois groups\, algebraic varieties and certain analytic objects (automo
rphic forms). Many spectacular theorems have come from this area\, for exa
mple the key insight in Wiles' proof of Fermat's last theorem was a connec
tion between elliptic curves\, modular forms and Galois representations. \
n\nThe goal of this talk is to explain how geometric constructions\, parti
cularly related to Shimura varieties\, arise naturally in the Langlands pr
ogram. I will then talk about joint work with Stefan Patrikis\, stating th
at Galois representations arising from certain Shimura varieties satisfy t
he properties predicted by the correspondence introduced above.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Rationality of certain power series attached to paramodular Siegel modu
lar forms\nby Jennifer Johnson-Leung (University of Idaho) as part of
UCSD number theory seminar\n\nLecture held in APM 7321 and online.\n\nAbst
ract\nThe Euler product expression of the Dirichlet series of Fourier coef
ficients of an elliptic modular eigenform follows from a formal identity i
n the Hecke algebra for GL(2) with full level. In the case of Siegel modul
ar forms of degree two with paramodular level\, the situation is more deli
cate. In this talk\, I will present two rationality results. The first con
cerns the Dirichlet series of radial Fourier coefficients for an eigenform
of paramodular level divisible by the square of a prime. This result is a
n application of the theory of stable Klingen vectors (joint work with Bro
oks Roberts and Ralf Schmidt). While we are able to calculate the action
of certain Hecke operators on eigenforms\, the structure of the Hecke alge
bra of deep level is not known in general. However\, in the case of prime
level\, there is a robust description of the local Hecke algebra which yie
lds a rationality result for a formal power series of Hecke operators (joi
nt work with Joshua Parker and Brooks Roberts). In both cases\, we obtain
the expected local L-factor as the denominator of the rational function.\n

sizes of these groups in Galois towers of graphs that mimic the classical
results in Iwasawa theory\, though the connection to the values of the Iha

a new way to view the Jacobian of a graph that more directly centers the
edges of the graph\, construct a module over the relevant Iwasawa algebra
that nearly corresponds to the interpolated zeta function\, and discuss wh
ere the discrepancy comes from.\n
