Topic: | Introduction to Non-Abelian p-Adic Hodge Theory |

Speaker: | Vadim Vologodsky |

Affiliation: | University of Chicago and Member, School of Mathematics |

Date: | Friday, February 22 |

Time/Room: | 10:30am - 12:00pm/S-101 |

This is the first in a series of (probably) three talks whose goal is to understand Faltingsâ€™ paper "A p-adic Simpson correspondence". Roughly speaking, this is a correspondence between Higgs bundles over a smooth proper curve X over the field of p-adic complex numbers and representations of the fundamental group of X. No preliminary acquaintance with the subject will be assumed.
