GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS AND AUTOMORPHIC FORMS SEMINAR
Topic: On the Realization of Some Degenerate Automorphic Forms on Certain Griffiths-Schmid Varieties
Speaker: Henri Carayol
Affiliation: University of Strasbourg
Date & Time: Wednesday November 10th, 2010, 2:15pm - 3:15pm
Some automorphic forms, despite the fact they are algebraic, do not have any interpretation as cohomology classes on a Shimura variety: therefore nothing is known at present on their expected arithmetic properties. I shall explain how such forms appear to be related to more general objects (Griffiths-Schmid varieties) and discuss some related rationality questions.
