# 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

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.
