Global Chang's Conjecture

Yair Hayut - (joint with Monroe Eskew)

For $\kappa < \lambda$ infinite cardinals let us consider the following generalization of the Lowenheim-Skolem theorem:
"For every algebra with countably many operations over $\lambda^+$ there is a sub-algebra with order type exactly $\kappa^+$".

We will discuss the consistency and inconsistency of some global versions of this statement and present some open questions.

Model theory and geometry of fields with automorphism


I will review some of the model-theoretic geometry of difference varieties, and some open problems. 
A difference variety is defined by polynomial equations with an additional operator $\si$ interpreted as a field automorphism.

NT & AG Lunch: Sazzad Biswas "Local gamma factors, and converse problems"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
Let F be a non-Archimedean local field. In the representation theory of GL_n(F), one of the basic problems is to characterize its irreducible representations up to isomorphism. There are many invariants (e.g., epsilon factors, L-functions, gamma factors, depth, etc) that we can attach to a representation of GL_n(F). Roughly, the local converse problem is to find the smallest subcollection of twisted local \gamma-factors which classifies the
irreducible admissible representations of GL_n(F) up to isomorphism.

NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky "Moduli "spaces" of vector bundles on curves"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
First we am going to recall first basic facts about vector bundles on smooth projective curves. Then we will talk about moduli "spaces" of vector bundles on curves. If time permits, we will also talk about related "spaces" like Hecke stacks and moduli "spaces" of shtukas.
Key words: Riemann-Roth theorem for curves, vector bundles on curves, degree.

NT & AG Lunch: Jasmin Matz "Automorphic L-functions I"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
Abstract: The goal of this (and the next) talk is to introduce automorphic L-functions
for GL(n) and other split groups, and to discuss some of their properties and some conjectures.
Key words: L-functions, Langlands dual group, modular forms

NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky Title: "GL(n,F)\GL(n,A)/GL(n,O) over function fields and vector bundles on curves"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building

Abstract: The starting point of the geometric approach to the theory of automorphic forms over function fields is a beautiful observation of Weil asserting that there is a natural bijection between the two-sided quotient GL(n,F)\GL(n,A)/GL(n,O) and the set of isomorphism classes rank n vector bundles on a curve. The goal of my talk will be to explain this result and to give some applications.
Key words: adeles and ideles in the function field case, algebraic curves, line and vector bundles on curves, Picard group, Riemann-Roch theorem.

NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky "Algebraic stacks, II"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building

Last week we discussed what does it means for a functor to be a "sheaf" in the etale topology.
Our goal now will be to complete the definition of algebraic stacks and to give examples.
Key words: algebraic stacks, faithfully flat morphisms, faithfully flat descent, moduli spaces of vector bundles
on curves.

NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky "Algebraic stacks"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building

The main goal of this talk will be to define algebraic stacks and to give examples.
Our main example will be moduli "space" of vector bundles on a smooth projective curve.
Key words: groupoids, Grothendieck topologies, etale and smooth morphisms of schemes, G-torsors,
algebraic stacks.

NT & AG Lunch: Jasmin Matz "Automorphic L-functions II"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
Having defined the standard automorphic L-function for GL(n) in the first talk, we now proceed to the definition of L-functions for general split groups and representations of the Langlands dual group
(which will be discussed as well). I then want to discuss some results and conjectures regarding these
L-functions.
Key words: L-functions, Langlands dual group, modular forms

NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky "Introduction to algebraic stacks"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
Abstract: The goal of this talk will be to explain what are algebraic stacks and why they naturally appear.
If time permits, we will start discussing our main example of moduli spaces of vector bundles on a smooth projective curve.
Key words: groupoids, Grothendieck topologies, etale and smooth morphisms of schemes, algebraic stacks.

NT & AG Lunch: Sazzad Biswas "Local factors, and converse problems"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building

Title: Local (L-, \epsilon- and \gamma-) factors, and converse theorems.
Abstract: Our first goal will be to define local (L-,\epsilon- and \gamma-) factors and to study their properties. These factors are needed to formulate the local Langlands correspondence for GL(n), which was outlined two weeks ago. We will do it first for supercuspidal representations of GL(n) and then for local Galois representations, that is, for representations of Gal(\bar{F}/F), where F is a local field.

Yeor Hafouta (HUJI) A local limit theorem for random dynamical systems.

2:15pm to 3:15pm

Location: 

Ross 70
Probabilistic limit theorems for (distance expanding and hyperbolic) dynamical systems is a well studied
topic. In this talk I will present conditions guaranteeing that a local central limit theorem holds true for certain families of distance
expanding random dynamical systems. If time permits, I will also discuss a version of the Berry-Esseen theorem.
Joint work with Yuri Kifer.

Randomisations, coheir sequences and NSOP1
[Joint with A Chernikov and N Ramsey]
Recall that if T is a theory, then its Keisler randomisation, T^R, is the theory of spaces of random variables which take values in a model of T .
It was show some time ago that if T has IP (e.g., simple unstable), then T^R has TP2, and in particular not simple.
In Eilat I announced the following result [with Chernikov and Ramsey] :
A. If T is NSOP1, then its randomisation T^R is NSOP1
