|GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS AND AUTOMORPHIC FORMS SEMINAR|
|Topic:||On the Realization of Some Degenerate Automorphic Forms on Certain Griffiths-Schmid Varieties|
|Affiliation:||University of Strasbourg|
|Date:||Wednesday, November 10|
|Time/Room:||2:15pm - 3:15pm/S-101|
Some automorphic forms, despite the fact they are algebraic, do not have any interpretation as cohomology classes on a Shimura variety: therefore nothing is known at present on their expected arithmetic properties. I shall explain how such forms appear to be related to more general objects (Griffiths-Schmid varieties) and discuss some related rationality questions.
