  1. MSRI Evans Talk: The beginning of a local Langlands correspondance modulo $p$

    Location: 60 Evans Hall, UC Berkeley
    Speakers: Marie-France Vigneras (Université de Paris VII (Denis Diderot))

    The local Langlands correspondence is a small part of a vast land discovered by Langlands. The general feeling is that a local Langlands correspondance should exist modulo $p$. But it remains mysterious...

  2. GRT Research Seminar: The transfer to positive characteristic of the fundamental lemma for the full Hecke algebra.

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Thomas Hales (University of Pittsburgh)

    The fundamental lemma is an identity of orbital integrals that holds between elements of the Hecke algebra of a reductive group over a p-adic field and its endoscopic groups.  By the trace formula, these identities are known in characteristic zero.  We show how to transfer these identities to positive characteristic using motivic integration.  This work extends earlier work with Cluckers and Loeser that proved a related transfer result for the unit element of the Hecke algebra.

  3. NGM Research Seminar: Finiteness of cohomology of relative (phi,Gamma)-modules

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Ruochuan Liu (Peking University)

    We will show that the higher direct images of relative (phi, Gamma)-modules along proper smooth morphisms of smooth rigid analytic spaces are generalized (phi, Gamma)-modules. Joint work with Kedlaya.

  4. NGM Pizza Seminar: Description of the Moduli Space for U(n,0) as a Tensor Product of Categories.

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Zavosh Amir-Khosravi (Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences)

    Shimura varieties attached to unitary groups of signature (n-r,r) have integral models described by moduli spaces of certain principally polarized abelian schemes. We will consider the case r=0, and show that the corresponding moduli stack can be described as a categorical tensor product of the stack of CM elliptic curves with a category of rank-n positive-definite hermitian modules.

  6. Grad Student Seminar: Motivation and overview of the proof of the geometric Satake correspondence

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Sam Raskin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

    I will explain why one should be able to upgrade the Satake isomorphism to an equivalence of categories, talk about the function-sheaf dictionary, and give an overview of the proof of the geometric Satake correspondence. The goal is to motivate the technical tools that will be used and to explain the major steps of the argument.

  7. Colloquium: More products for Borcherds forms

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Stephen Kudla (University of Toronto)

    In a pair of Invenitones papers in 1995 and 1998, Borcherds gave a construction of meromorphic modular forms on the hermitian symmetric domain associated to a rational quadratic space V, ( , )  of signature (n,2).  These modular forms have remarkable properties including
    (1) an explicit divisor given in terms of special divisors and
    (2) product formulas, each valid in a neighborhood of a point boundary component.
    In this lecture, after reviewing Borcherds' construction, and under the assumption that V, ( , ) admits 2-dimensional rational isotropic subspaces,  I will describe some new product formulas for these modular forms, each valid in the neighborhood of a 1-dimensional boundary component. The products involve Jacobi theta functions and eta functions.
    They should prove useful in understanding the integral theory of Borcherds forms.

  13. NGM Research Seminar: Introductory remarks on Mochizuki's works on absolute anabelian geometry and inter-universal Teichmuller theory

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Chung Pang Mok (Morningside Center of Mathematics)

    Inter-universal Teichmuller theory as developed by Mochizuki in the past decade, is an analogue for number fields, of the classical complex Teichmuller theory, and also the p-adic Teichmuller theory of Mochizuki. In this theory, the ring structure of a number field is subject to deformation. Absolute anabelian geometry, a refinement of the anabelian geometry as proposed by Grothendieck, plays a crucial role in inter-universal Teichmuller theory. In this talk we will try to give an introduction to this circle of ideas of Mochizuki.

  17. MSRI Evans Talk: The What, Why and How of Categorification

    Location: 60 Evans Hall, UC Berkeley
    Speakers: Zsuzsanna Dancso (MSRI - Mathematical Sciences Research Institute)

    Categorification has been a central topic in the past two decades in several areas of mathematics including representation theory and low dimensional topology. In broad terms, categorification introduces richer structure by replacing algebraic structures (groups, rings, etc) by categories, in a way that lifts the important properties of the original structure.

    In this talk I will explain the general idea of categorification and illustrate it with an example from low-dimensional topology: Khovanov's link homology. We will discuss advantages and applications of categorification in different settings, and open problems in the area.
