# Colloquium: Joachim König (Universität Würzburg) - "Specialization of Galois coverings over number fields"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

The inverse Galois problem (over number fields k) is one of the central problems in algebraic number theory. A classical approach to it is via specialization of Galois coverings: Hilbert’s irreducibility theorem guarantees the existence of infinitely many specialization values in k such that the Galois group of the specialization equals the Galois group of the covering. I will consider problems related to the inverse Galois problem which can be attacked using the specialization approach.
