New geometric methods in number theory and automorphic forms

Month: August 2014

Date: August 11--December 12

Name: New geometric methods in number theory and automorphic forms

Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.


Description

The branches of number theory most directly related to the arithmetic of automorphic forms have seen much recent progress, with the resolution of many longstanding conjectures. These breakthroughs have largely been achieved by the discovery of new geometric techniques and insights. The goal of this program is to highlight new geometric structures and new questions of a geometric nature which seem most crucial for further development. In particular, the program will emphasize geometric questions arising in the study of Shimura varieties, the p-adic Langlands program, and periods of automorphic forms.
