Galois Representations and Arithmetic Geometry

by

Professor Jeffrey Hatley

Bailey Hall 207

Refreshments in the common room at 4:15


Abstract:

Much of modern number theory is dedicated to understanding the absolute Galois group of the rational numbers. This talk will discuss (a) why we want to understand this object and (b) the ways in which we study this object. The main focus of this talk will be on Galois representations coming from geometric objects (e.g. elliptic curves).
