# Logic Seminar - Omer Ben-Neria

11:00am to 1:00pm

## Location:

Ross 63

**Hjorth's theory of turbulence**

The purpose of this talk is to survey several results from Hjorth's theory of turbulent polish group actions.

We will start by discussing certain classification problems associated with Borel equivalence relations, and present the notions of Borel reductions and smooth relations, and the E_0 dichotomy theorem of Harrington-Kechris-Louveau.

**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.

## Location:

**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.

# 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.

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: 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.

# 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: 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.

# 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.
