Algebraic Cycles and Euler Systems for Real Quadratic Fields

JOINT IAS/PU NUMBER THEORY SEMINAR
Topic:Algebraic Cycles and Euler Systems for Real Quadratic Fields
Speaker:Henri Darmon
Affiliation:McGill University
Date:Thursday, April 21
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine Hall -- 214

I will discuss some possible applications of algebraic cycles and p-adic families of modular forms to the arithmetic of elliptic curves over abelian extensions of real quadratic fields. This is a report on work in progress with Victor Rotger and Ignacio Sols, and on earlier work with Massimo Bertolini and Kartik Prasanna.
