    Recent progress on limit linear series

    Linear series are fundamental to the study of algebraic curves, and the most powerful technique to date for studying linear series is the theory of limit linear series, a degeneration technique introduced by Eisenbud and Harris. However, for the past nearly 30 years, several foundational questions relating to limit linear series have remained open, including how to generalize them from curves of compact type to more general nodal curves. I will describe how the discovery of an equivalent definition of limit linear series has opened the door to solutions of many of these questions.

    Deformations of Complex Poisson manifolds and their Lagrangian Submanifolds

    We study compact Kaehlerian manifolds endowed with a holomorphic Poisson structure, i.e. a tangent 2-vector with zero self-bracket, which is almost everywhere nondegenerate. Under a normal-crossing condition on the degeneracy divisor  , we prove these manifolds have unobstructed deformations, along with their 'Lagrangian', i.e. maximal isotropic, submanifolds.      The proof is based on Deligne's mixed Hodge theory.

  5. MSRI Evans Talk: An introduction to p-adic automorphic forms

    Location: 60 Evans Hall, UC Berkeley
    Speakers: Elena Mantovan (California Institute of Technology)

    The notion of a p-adic modular form (a p-adic analogue of classical modular forms) was first introduced by Serre in 1973 via the q-expansion principle. Soon afterwards, Katz gave a new definition via the geometry of modular curves. The p-adic theory provides the appropriate framework for the study of congruences among classical forms, and p-adic interpolation (i.e. the construction of families of classical forms which converge p-adically) is a crucial tool behind many important arithmetic results on classical modular forms. 

    Automorphc forms are a vast generalization of modular forms. Yet, in recent years, many arithmetic properties of modular forms were extended to automorphic forms, with stunning consequences.   In this talk we will introduce the notions of classical and p-adic automorphic forms. We will mostly focus on aspects of the p-adic theory related to Hida's Igusa tower, the q-expansion principle and their application to the construction of p-adic families of automorphic forms.
