GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS AND AUTOMORPHIC FORMS SEMINAR
Topic: Analytic Geometry Over F_1
Speaker: Vladimir Berkovich
Affiliation: Weizmann Institute of Science
Date & Time: Wednesday March 2nd, 2011, 2:15pm - 3:15pm
Location: West Bldg. Lecture Hall
I'll talk on work in progress on algebraic and analytic geometry over the field of one element F_1. This work originates in non-Archimedean analytic geometry as a result of a search for appropriate framework for so called skeletons of analytic spaces and formal schemes, and is related to logarithmic and tropical geometry. I'll explain what analytic spaces over F_1 are, and will describe non-Archimedean and complex analytic spaces which are obtained from them.
