Title: Slopes of modular forms

Speaker: Bin Zhao (MCM, AMSS)

Abstract: In this talk, I will first explain the motivation to study the slopes of modular forms. It has an intimate relation with the geometry of eigencurves. I will mention two conjectures on the geometry of eigencurves: the halo conjecture concerning the boundary behavior, and the ghost conjecture concerning the central behavior. I will then explain some known results towards these conjectures. The former one is a joint work with Rufei Ren, which generalizes a previous work of Ruochuan Liu, Daqing Wan and Liang Xiao. The latter one is a joint work in progress with Ruochuan Liu, Nha Truong and Liang Xiao.



Title: Epsilon dichotomy for linear models

Speaker: Hang Xue (University of Arizona)

Abstract: I will explain what linear models are and their relation with automorphic forms. I will explain how to relate the existence of linear models to the local constants. This extends a classical result of Saito--Tunnell. I gave a talk last year here on the implication in one direction, I will explain my recent idea on the implication in the other direction.



Title: Quadratic twists of central L-values for automorphic representations of GL(3)

Speaker: Didier Lesesvre (Sun Yat-Sen University)

Abstract: A cuspidal automorphic representations of GL(3) over a number field, submitted to mild extra assumptions, is determined by the quadratic twists of its central L-values. Beyond the result itself, its proof is an archetypical argument in the world of multiple Dirichlet series, and therefore a perfect excuse to introduce these objects in this talk.



Title: Level-raising for automorphic forms on $GL_n$ over a CM field

Speaker: Aditya Karnataki (BICMR, Peking University)

Abstract: Let $E$ be a CM number field and $p$ be a prime unramified in $E$. In this talk, we explain a level-raising result at $p$ for regular algebraic conjugate self-dual cuspidal automorphic representations of $GL_n(\mathbf{A}_E)$. This generalizes previously known results of Jack Thorne.



Title: Curve counting and modular forms: elliptic curve case

Speaker: Jie Zhou (YMSC, Tsinghua University)

Abstract: In this talk, I will start by a gentle introduction of Gromov-Witten theory which roughly is a theory of the enumeration of holomorphic maps from complex curves to a fixed target space, focusing on the elliptic curve (as the target space) example. Then I will explain some ingredients from mirror symmetry, as well as a Hodge-theoretic description of quasi-modular and modular forms and their relations to periods of elliptic curves. After that I will show how to prove the enumeration of holomorphic maps are related to modular and quasi-modular forms, following the approach developed by Yefeng Shen and myself. Finally I will discuss the Taylor expansions near elliptic points of the resulting quasi-modular forms and their enumerative meanings. If time permits, I will also talk about some interesting works by Candelas-de la Ossa-Rodriguez-Villegas regarding the counting of points on and the counting of holomorphic maps to elliptic curves over finite fields.



Title: Integral period relations for base change

Speaker: Eric Urban (Columbia University)

Abstract: Under relatively mild  and natural conditions, we establish an integral period relations for the (real or imaginary) quadratic base change of an elliptic cusp form. This answers a conjecture of Hida regarding the {\it congruence number} controlling the congruences between this base change and other eigenforms which are not base change. As a corollary, we establish the Bloch-Kato conjecture for adjoint modular Galois representations twisted by an even quadratic character. In the odd case, we formulate a conjecture linking the degree two topological period attached to the base change Bianchi modular form, the cotangent complex of the corresponding Hecke algebra and the archimedean regulator attached to some Beilinson-Flach element. This is a joint work with Jacques Tilouine.



Title: Geometry of Drinfeld modular varieties

Speaker: Chia-Fu Yu (Institute of mathematics, Academia Sinica)

Abstract: I will describe the current status on the geometry of Drinfeld moduli schemes we know. Main part of this talk will explain the construction of the arithmetic Satake compactification, and the geometry of compactified Drinfeld period domain over finite fields due to Pink and Schieder. We also plan to explain local and global properties of the strafification of reduction modulo v of a Drinfeld moduli scheme. This is joint work with Urs Hartl.
