  • Infrastructure Week: Hilbert Modular Forms at Dartmouth

    Feb 21 - 25, 2022
    Dartmouth, NH

    Collaboration PI John Voight is leading a focus week on Hilbert Modular Forms, emphasizing computational techniques and databases.

  • Simons Collaboration Annual Meeting

    Jan 13 - 14, 2022

    The 2022 Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation Annual Meeting will focus on the following themes:

    • Development and organization of software and databases supporting research in number theory and arithmetic geometry
    • Fundamental research in arithmetic geometry inspired by computation and leading to new algorithms
    • Explorations of L-functions, modular forms, and Galois representations with elegant and unusual properties

    Talks will present contributions from members of the collaboration and work by leading experts that may inspire future developments. Note: This was abbreviated to a virtual session due to the Omicron surge.
