DESCRIPTION:Title: Fields generated by points on superelliptic curves\nby Lea Benei
sh (UC Berkeley) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe gi
ve an asymptotic lower bound on the number of field\nextensions generated
by algebraic points on superelliptic curves over\n$\\mathbb{Q}$ with fixed
degree $n$\, discriminant bounded by $X$\, and Galois\nclosure $S_n$. For
$C$ a fixed curve given by an affine equation $y^m =\nf(x)$ where $m \\ge
q 2$ and $deg f(x) = d \\geq m$\, we find that for all\ndegrees $n$ divisi
ble by $gcd(m\, d)$ and sufficiently large\, the number of\nsuch fields is
asymptotically bounded below by $X^{c_n}$ \, where $c_n$ goes to\n$1/m^2$
as $n$ goes to $\\infty$. This bound is determined explicitly by\nparamet
erizing $x$ and $y$ by rational functions\, counting specializations\,\nan
d accounting for multiplicity. We then give geometric heuristics\nsuggesti
ng that for $n$ not divisible by $gcd(m\, d)$\, degree $n$ points\nmay be
less abundant than those for which $n$ is divisible by $gcd(m\, d)$.\nName
ly\, we discuss the obvious geometric sources from which we expect to\nfin
d points on $C$ and discuss the relationship between these sources and\nou
r parametrization. When one a priori has a point on $C$ of degree not\ndiv
isible by $gcd(m\, d)$\, we argue that a similar counting argument\napplie
s. As a proof of concept we show in the case that $C$ has a rational\npoin
t that our methods can be extended to bound the number of fields\ngenerate
d by a degree $n$ point of $C$\, regardless of divisibility of $n$\nby $gc
d(m\, d)$. This talk is based on joint work with Christopher Keyes.\n\nPle

DESCRIPTION:Title: Arithmetic statistics and diophantine stability for elliptic curves<
/a>\nby Anwesh Ray (University of British Columbia) as part of UBC Number
theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 2017\, B. Mazur and K. Rubin introduced t
he notion of diophantine stability for a variety defined over a number fie
ld. Given an elliptic curve E defined over the rationals and a prime numbe
r p\, E is said to be diophantine stable at p if there are abundantly many
p-cyclic extensions $L/\\mathbb{Q}$ such that $E(L)=E(\\mathbb{Q})$. In p
articular\, this means that given any integer $n>0$\, there are infinitely
many cyclic extensions with Galois group $\\mathbb{Z}/p^n\\mathbb{Z}$\, s
uch that $E(L)=E(\\mathbb{Q})$. It follows from more general results of Ma
zur-Rubin that $E$ is diophantine stable at a positive density set of prim
es p.\n\nIn this talk\, I will discuss diophantine stability of average fo
r pairs $(E\,p)$\, where $E$ is a non-CM elliptic curve and $p\\geq 11$ is
a prime number at which $E$ has good ordinary reduction. First\, I will f
ix the elliptic curve and vary the prime. In this context\, it is shown th
at diophantine stability is a consequence of certain properties of Selmer
groups studied in Iwasawa theory. Statistics for Iwasawa invariants were s
tudied recently (in joint work with collaborators). As an application\, on
e shows that if the Mordell Weil rank of E is zero\, then\, $E$ is diophan
tine stable at $100\\%$ of primes $p$. One also shows that standard conjec
tures (like rank distribution) imply that for any prime $p\\geq 11$\, a po
sitive density set of elliptic curves (ordered by height) is diophantine s
table at $p$. I will also talk about related results for stability and gro
wth of the p-primary part of the Tate-Shafarevich group in cyclic p-extens
ions.\n

act\nThe classical problem of counting elliptic curves with a rational\nN-
isogeny can be phrased in terms of counting rational points on certain mod

DESCRIPTION:Title: Heegner points and generalised Kato classes\nby Francesc Castell
a (UC Santa Barbara) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nF
or an elliptic curve $E/\\mathbb{Q}$ and a fixed prime $p$\, a\ncelebrated
"$p$-converse" to a theorem of Kolyvagin takes the form of the\nimplicati
on: If the $p^\\infty$ Selmer group of $E$ has\n$\\mathbb{Z}_p$-corank one
\, then a certain Heegner is non-torsion. The\nGross-Zagier formula then a
llows one to conclude that $E$ has analytic rank\none. Following the pione
ering work of Skinner and Wei Zhang\, a growing\nnumber of results are kno
wn in the direction of this $p$-converse. In this\ntalk\, I'll describe th
e proof of a result in the same spirit for elliptic\ncurves of rank two\,
in which Heegner points are replaced by certain\ngeneralised Kato classes
introduced by Darmon and Rotger. The talk is based\non joint work with M.-

DESCRIPTION:Title: p-adic aspects of L-functions\, with a view toward Spin L-functions<
/a>\nby Ellen Eischen (U Oregon) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nThe study of p-adic properties of values of L-functions dates b
ack to Kummer's study of congruences between values of the Riemann zeta fu
nction at negative odd\nintegers\, as part of his attempt to understand cl
ass numbers of cyclotomic extensions.\nAfter Kummer's ideas largely lay do
rmant for over a half century\, Iwasawa's conjectures\nabout the meaning o
f p-adic L-functions led to renewed interest\, and Serre's discovery of\np
-adic modular forms opened up a new approach to studying congruences betwe
en values\nof L-functions\, forming the foundation for continued developme
nts today.\n\nWith a viewpoint that encompasses several settings\, includi
ng modular forms (on $GL_2$)\nand automorphic forms on higher rank groups\
, I will introduce p-adic L-functions and a\nrecipe for constructing them\
, which relies partly on properties of Fourier coefficients of modular (an
d automorphic) forms. Along the way\, I will introduce several recent deve
lopments\nand put them in the context of constructions of Serre\, Katz\, a
nd Hida. As an example of a\nrecent application of these ideas\, I will di
scuss the results of a paper-in-preparation\, joint\nwith G. Rosso and S.
Shah\, on p-adic Spin L-functions of ordinary cuspidal automorphic\nrepres
entations of $GSp_6$ associated to Siegel modular forms.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Iwasawa Invariants of Modular Forms with $a_p=0$\nby Rylan Gajek
-Leonard (UMass Amherst) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstrac
t\nMazur-Tate elements provide a convenient method to study the\nanalytic
Iwasawa theory of p-nonordinary modular forms\, where the\nassociated p-ad
ic L-functions tend to have unbounded coefficients. The\nIwasawa invariant
s of Mazur-Tate elements are well-understood in the case\nof weight 2 modu
lar forms\, where they can be related to the growth of\np-Selmer groups an
d decompositions of the p-adic L-function. At higher\nweights\, less is kn
own. By constructing certain lifts to the full Iwasawa\nalgebra\, we compu
te the Iwasawa invariants of Mazur-Tate elements for\nhigher weight modula
r forms with $a_p=0$ in terms of the plus/minus\ninvariants of the p-adic
L-function. Combined with results of\nPollack-Weston\, this forces a relat

DESCRIPTION:Title: Effective Methods for Norm-Form Equations\nby Prajeet Bajpai (U
BC) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet $\\alpha_1\,\\
ldots\,\\alpha_k$ be linearly independent elements\nof a number field $K$
of degree $n \\ge k$\, and let $m$ be an integer. The\nequation $\\mathrm{
Norm}_{K/\\Q} (x_1\\alpha_1 + \\cdots + x_k\\alpha_k) = m$\,\nto be solved
in integers\, is called a `norm-form equation'. The case of\nbinary forms
was solved by Thue in 1909\, and the general case was resolved\nby Schmid
t in 1971 through his Subspace Theorem generalizing the work of\nThue-Sieg
el-Roth. Unfortunately these results are ineffective\, and do not\nprovide
any means of determining a bound on the height of exceptional\nsolutions-
- in particular\, they do not allow us to determine a complete\nlist of so
lutions for even a single norm-form equation.\n\nBaker's theorem on linear
forms in logarithms gave an effective version of\nThue's result for binar
y forms\, and Vojta in his PhD thesis was able extend\nthis effectivity to
three-variable norm-form equations under the assumption\nthat $K$ is tota
lly complex and Galois. In this talk we discuss effective\nresolution for
certain norm-form equations in four and five variables\,\nextending the wo
rk of Vojta. In particular\, we completely and effectively\nresolve the qu
estion of norm-form equations over totally complex Galois\nsextic fields.
The results are motivated by joint work with Mike Bennett.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Torsion Subgroups of CM Elliptic Curves in Degree 2p\nby Abbey
Bourdon (Wake Forest University) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nA common classification problem is to identify the groups which
arise as\nthe torsion subgroup of an elliptic curve defined over any numb
er field of\na fixed degree. That only finitely many such groups occur in
this context\nis a consequence of Merel's Uniform Boundedness Theorem. How
ever\, for\ncertain families of elliptic curves--such as those with comple
x\nmultiplication (CM)--recent advances have allowed us to move beyond a\n
fixed-degree classification to glimpse the behavior of torsion points over
\ninfinitely many degrees of a restricted form. In this talk\, I will disc
uss\nrecent work with Holly Paige Chaos which characterizes the groups tha
t\narise as torsion subgroups of CM elliptic curves defined over number fi
elds\nof degree 2p where p is prime. Here\, a classification in the strong
est\nsense is tied to determining whether there exist infinitely many Soph
ie\nGermain primes.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Zeta functions and asymptotics related to subrings in $\\mathbb{Z}^

eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe can define a zeta function of a group (or ring) t
o be the Dirichlet series associated to the sequence that counts the numbe
r of subgroups (or subrings) of a given index. The subgroup zeta function
over $\\mathbb{Z}^n$ is well-understood\, as is the asymptotic growth of s
ubgroups in $\\mathbb{Z}^n$. Much less is known about the subring zeta fun
ction over $\\mathbb{Z}^n$ and the asymptotic growth of subrings in $\\mat
hbb{Z}^n$. In this talk\, we discuss the progress toward answering this qu
estion and we give new lower bounds on the asymptotic growth of subrings i
n $\\mathbb{Z}^n$. We also define a similar zeta function corresponding to
subrings of corank at most k in $\\mathbb{Z}^n$. While the proportion of
subgroups in $\\mathbb{Z}^n$ of corank $k$ is positive for each $k$\, we s
how this is not the case for subrings in $\\mathbb{Z}^n$ of corank $k$ whe
n $n$ is sufficiently larger than $k$. Lastly\, we make connections to ord

DESCRIPTION:Title: Canonical heights and the Andre-Oort conjecture\nby Ananth Shan
kar (University of Wisconsin Madison) as part of UBC Number theory seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nLet S be a Shimura variety. The Andre-Oort conjecture posi
ts that the Zariski\nclosure of special points must be a sub-Shimura subva
riety of S. The Andre-Oort\nconjecture for $A_g$ (the moduli space of prin
cipally polarized Abelian\nvarieties) and therefore its sub-Shimura variet
ies was proved by Jacob\nTsimerman. However\, this conjecture was unknown
for Shimura varieties without a\nmoduli interpretation. I will describe jo
int work with Jonathan Pila and Jacob\nTsimerman (with an appendix by Esna
ult-Groechenig) where we prove the Andre-Oort conjecture in full generalit
y.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Iwasawa theory for supersingular abelian varieties\nby Cedric D
ion (Univ. Laval) as part of UBC Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFix
an odd prime number p. Let K be a quadratic imaginary field where p\nsplit
s. Let A be an abelian variety de\nned over K with good supersingular redu
ction at\nboth primes above p. In this talk\, we investigate some aspect o
f the Iwasawa theory for A\nover the $\\mathbb{Z}_p^2$-extension of K. We
begin by giving an overview of the relevant Selmer groups\nbuilding on the
work of Büyükboduk and Lei. We then show that the Mordeil-Weil rank of\
nA along this $\\mathbb{Z}_p^2$-extension grows like a function which is $
O(p^n\n)$ (joint with J. Ray). Finally\,\nusing the recently developed the
ory of gamma-systems\, we prove an algebraic functional\nequation involvin
g the Pontryagin dual of our Selmer groups.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A Shimura-Shintani correspondence for rigid analytic cocycles\n
by Isabella Negrini (Mcgill University) as part of UBC Number theory semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn their paper Singular moduli for real quadratic fields
: a rigid\n analytic approach\, Darmon and Vonk introduced rigid meromorph
ic cocycles\,\n i.e. elements of $H^1(SL_2(\\mathbb{Z}[1/p])\, M^x)$ where
$M^x$ is the multiplicative\n group of rigid meromorphic functions on the
p-adic upper-half plane.\n Their values at RM points belong to narrow rin
g class fields of real\n quadratic fiends and behave analogously to CM val
ues of modular functions\n on $SL_2(\\mathbb{Z})\\backslash H$. In this ta
lk I will present some progress towards\n developing a Shimura-Shintani co
rrespondence in this setting.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Special values of L-functions - a classical approach\nby Siddhi
Pathak (Chennai Mathematical Institute) as part of UBC Number theory semi
nar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1734\, Euler observed that the values of the Riemann
zeta-function\nat even positive integers are rational multiples of powers
of $ \\pi $. However\,\nthe odd zeta-values remain a mystery to this day.
In fact\, it is widely\nbelieved that the odd zeta-values do not satisfy
any polynomial relation with $\n\\pi $ over the rational numbers. Almost t
hree centuries after Euler\, several\ndifferent perspectives have emerged
to study the general case of special values\nof L-functions. In this talk\
, we discuss a more classical approach and describe\nrecent progress on re
lated conjectures by Chowla\, Erdos and Milnor.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Mod p local-global compatibility for $GSp_4(\\mathbb{Q}_p)$ in the
ordinary case\nby Heejong Lee (University of Toronto) as part of UBC N
umber theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe conjectural mod p Langlands progra
m relates continuous mod p local Galois representations to smooth admissib
le representation of p-adic groups (with coeficient\nfield of characterist
ic p). Except for $GL_1$ and $GL_2(\\mathbb{Q}_p)$\, there is no known con
struction of\nmod p Langlands correspondence. However\, it is possible to
construct a candidate using the\nspace of mod p automorphic forms and the
Taylor-Wiles method. It is not clear whether\nthis candidate\, constructed
by taking non-canonical choices of global data\, is determined\nby the in
itial mod p local Galois representation.\nIn this talk\, we discuss a ques
tion in reverse direction: can we recover the initial\nlocal Galois repres
entation from the smooth admissible representation of p-adic group\nconstr
ucted above? We will discuss the proof of this statement in the case of $G
Sp_4(\\mathbb{Q}_p)$ and\nlocal Galois representations that are upper-tria
ngular\, maximally non-split\, and generic.\nOne of the main ingredients i
n the proof is explicit Jantzen filtration of lattices in a certain\ntame
type. This is joint work with John Enns.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Geometry of local Arthur packets for simple unramified Arthur param
eters for $GL_n$\nby Mishty Ray (University of Calgary) as part of UBC
Number theory seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe local Langlands correspondence f
or a connected reductive p-adic group G partitions the set of equivalence
classes of smooth irreducible representations of G(F) into L-packets using
equivalence classes of Langlands parameters. Vogan's geometric perspectiv
e gives us a moduli space of Langlands parameters\, and the correspondence
can be viewed as a relation between the set of equivalence classes of smo
oth irreducible representations of G(F) and simple objects in the category
of equivariant perverse sheaves on the moduli space of Langlands paramete
rs that share a common infinitesimal parameter. This geometry gives us the
notion of an ABV-packet\, a set of smooth irreducible representations of
G(F)\, which conjecturally generalizes the notion of a local Arthur packet
- a local Arthur packet is conjecturally an ABV-packet. In this talk\, we
will look at Langlands parameters coming from simple Arthur parameters in
the case of $GL_n$. We will explore the geometry of the moduli space of L
anglands parameters using an example. We will see work in progress towards
proving that the local Arthur packet is the ABV-packet for this case.\n
