JOINT IAS/PU NUMBER THEORY SEMINAR | |

Topic: | Langlands Functoriality and the Inverse Problem in Galois theory |

Speaker: | Gordan Savin |

Affiliation: | University of Utah |

Date: | Thursday, December 11 |

Time/Room: | 4:30pm - 5:30pm/S-101 |

In a couple of recent works with C. Khare and M. Larsen we contruct finte groups of Lie type B_n, C_n and G_2 as Galois groups over rational numbers. The method combines some established, special cases of the functoriality principle with l-adic representations attached to self-dual automorphic representations of GL(n).
