p-adic periods via perfectoid spaces
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
Given the interpretation of classical periods as matrix coefficients arising in the comparison between singular and de Rham cohomology of complex algebraic varieties, it is natural to view as a p-adic analogue the comparison between etale, crystalline, and de Rham cohomology of algebraic varieties. We describe some new results and perspectives on p-adic comparison isomorphisms emerging from recent developments in the theory of perfectoid spaces. These include a new direct cohomological realization of the crystalline comparison isomorphism (by Bhatt-Morrow-Scholze), and the discovery of "abstract instances" of comparison isomorphisms corresponding to as-yet-unknown families of motives over Shimura varieties (by Liu-Zhu).
