Academic Year 2019/2020 - Number Theory Seminars

The Algebra and Number Theory group of the University of Luxembourg hosts three seminars.

Unless announced otherwise, the seminars take place in the "work place" MNO 6B in the 6th floor of the Maison du Nombre in Esch-Belval.

Everyone is invited to attend! For more information, please contact Gabor Wiese.

Collection of abstracts

Alexandre Maksoud (uni.lu) Iwasawa theory for weight one modular forms

In this talk we will first recall classical results in Iwasawa theory, then we will formulate and study an Iwasawa Main Conjecture in the context of classical newforms of weight one.

Vlad Serban (Vienna) Higher-dimensional distributions of Frobenius traces

I will show how to extend the heuristics of Lang and Trotter on distributions of Frobenius traces for the Galois representation associated to elliptic curves to products of elliptic curves, highlighting the interesting features and the results motivating these predictions. I will also present some evidence for such conjectures. This is joint work with Hao Chen and Nathan Jones.
