I'll show how the Vandermonde determinant identity allows us to
estimate the volume of certain spaces of polynomials in one variable
(or rather, of homogeneous polynomials in two variables), as the degree
goes to infinity.
I'll explain what this is good for in the context of globally valued
fields, and, given time constraints, may give some indications on the
approach for the "real inequality" in higher projective dimension.
Abstract: The set theoretic generalizations of algebras have been
introduced in the 1960s to give a set theoretic interpretation of usual
algebraic structures. The shift in perspective from algebra to set
theory is that in set theory the focus is on the collection of possible
algebras and sub-algebras on specific cardinals rather than on
particular algebraic structures. The study of collections of algebras
and sub-algebras has generated many well-known problems in combinatorial
set theory (e.g., Chang’s conjecture and the existence of small singular

Title: Colorful coverings of polytopes -- the hidden topological truth behind different colorful phenomena
The topological KKMS Theorem is a powerful extension of the Brouwer's Fixed-Point Theorem, which was proved by Shapley in 1973 in the context of
We prove a colorful and polytopal generalization of the KKMS Theorem, and show that our theorem implies some seemingly unrelated results in
discrete geometry and combinatorics involving colorful settings.
This talk is in natural in the context of the Zagier conjecture.
We express values of the Kronecker double series at CM points in
terms of values some version (Bloch-Wigner) of dilogarithm in algebraic
numbers. As zeta-function of the Hilbert class field of quadratic field can
be expressed as combination of the Kronecker double series at CM points
my result gives explicit form of the Zagier conjecture.
My technique is rather elementary and the proof is based on the introduction
some new function (elliptic (1,1)-logarithm) and comparisons with it.
We prove cases of Rietsch mirror conjecture that the quantum
connection for projective homogeneous varieties is isomorphic to the
pushforward D-module attached to Berenstein-Kazhdan geometric crystals.
The idea is to recognize the quantum connection as Galois and the
geometric crystal as automorphic. In particular we link the purity of
Berenstein-Kazhdan crystals to the Ramanujan property of certain Hecke
The isomorphism of D-modules comes from global rigidity results where a
Hecke eigenform is determined by its local ramification. We reveal
In this talk we discuss some aspects concerning the arithmetic of
systems of quadratic forms. This includes a result on the frequency of
counterexamples to the Hasse principle for del Pezzo surfaces of degree
four (joint work with J. Jahnel), and a result on the representability of
integers by systems of three quadratic forms (joint work with L. B. Pierce
and M. M. Wood).
In this talk, I present an analogue of the Hardy-Littlewood conjecture on the asymptotic distribution of prime constellations in the setting of short intervals in function fields of smooth projective curves over finite fields.
I will discuss the definition of a "short interval" on a curve as an additive translation of the space of global sections of a sufficiently positive divisor E by a suitable rational function f, and show how this definition generalizes the definition of a short interval in the polynomial
Motivated by understanding the action of Hecke operators on special sub-varieties of Shimura varieties, we consider the simplest possible case: the action of Hecke operators on the j-line, namely on the moduli space of elliptic curves, and in particular the action on singular moduli. Our interest is in this action considered in the p-adic topology. The emerging picture is surprisingly rich and the answers involve Serre-Tate coordinates, the Gross-Hopkins period map and finally involves random walks on GL_n.
This is joint work with Payman Kassaei (King's College).

A natural question is whether there exists a continuous p-adic analogue
for the classical local Langlands correspondence for GL_n(F) .
Namely, for a finite extension F of Q_p, we want to associate continuous p -adic representations of GL_n(F) to n-dimensional p-adic representations of the Weil group of F.
The particular case, where F=Q_p and n=2 , is now known. One of the main tools for establishing this correspondence was the existence of GL_2(Q_p)-invariant norms in certain representations of GL_2(Q_p).
Abstract: In 1981, Sansuc obtained a formula for Tamagawa numbers of reductive groups over number fields, modulo some then unknown results on the arithmetic of simply connected groups which have since been proven, particularly Weil's conjecture on Tamagawa numbers over number fields. One easily deduces that this same formula holds for all linear algebraic groups over number fields. Sansuc's method still works to treat reductive groups in the function field setting, thanks to the recent resolution of Weil's conjecture in the function field setting by Lurie and Gaitsgory.
Abstract: This talk will be about joint work with Eyal Goren about the
structure of Picard modular surfaces at a prime p which is inert in the
underlying quadratic imaginary field. The main tool for studying the bad
reduction of Shimura varieties is the theory of local models (due to de
Jong and Rapoport-Zink). Our results concern global geometric questions
which go beyond the theory of global models. For example, we are able to
count supersingular curves on the Picard surface. We also study certain
foliations in its tangent bundle that have not been studied before, and
Abstract: my talk will be devoted to a basic theory of extensions of
complete real-valued fields L/K. Naturally, one says that L is
topologically-algebraically generated over K by a subset S if L lies
in the completion of the algebraic closure of K(S). One can then define
topological analogues of algebraic independence, transcendence degree, etc.
These notions behave much more wierd than their algebraic analogues. For example,
there exist non-invertible continuous K-endomorphisms of the completed
algebraic closure of K(x). In my talk, I will tell which part
I discuss some class of function of several elliptic variables,
this functions generalize multiple polylogarithms of D. Zagier.
I show some applications of developed formalism.
This is a joint work with F. Brown.
