Vanishing Theorem for Torsion Automorphic sheaves

MEMBERS SEMINAR
Topic:Vanishing Theorem for Torsion Automorphic sheaves
Speaker:Kai-Wen Lan
Affiliation:Princeton University and Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Monday, April 5
Time/Room:2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101

In this talk, I will explain my joint work with Junecue Suh on when and why the cohomology of Shimura varieties (with nontrivial integral coefficients) has no torsion, based on certain vanishing theorems we have proved recently. (All conditions involved will be explicit, independent of level, and effectively computable.)
