Apr 6, 2018
Simons Collaboration Seminar (open to all) by Bjorn Poonen (MIT)
3:30-4:30pm in MIT room 6-120
We describe an attempt (unsuccessful so far) to give a new proof of Fermat’s last theorem, involving geometry of numbers and the isotypic components of a Galois number field viewed as a representation of its Galois group.
Rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of a JacobianMar 5, 2018
Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) speaks in the Brown University Algebra seminar on algorithms for the rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of the Jacobian of a curve defined over a number field. Abstract
Strong Arithmetic EquivalenceFeb 5, 2018
Andrew Sutherland (MIT), a collaboration PI, discusses research results that have applications to the construction of curves with isomorphic Jacobians and number fields with the same zeta function in the Brown University Algebra seminar. Abstract
Feb 2, 2018
Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) will discuss the predictions of the Langlands program for K3 surfaces, presenting some examples, open problems, and computational challenges. At 4:00pm at MIT. Abstract
Feb 1, 2018
Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) gives the Math Colloquium at Penn State University on Heuristics for Boundedness of Ranks of Elliptic Curves. He also speaks on Mock Heegner points and Sylvester’s Conjecture in the Number Theory Seminar.
