Symmetric Power Functoriality for GL(2)

Joint IAS/PU Number Theory Seminar
Topic:Symmetric Power Functoriality for GL(2)
Speaker:Jack Thorne
Affiliation:Harvard University
Date:Thursday, April 11
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine Hall 214

We will discuss some new automorphy lifting theorems for residually reducible Galois representations, and their application to proving new cases of symmetric power functoriality for elliptic modular forms. This is joint work with Laurent Clozel.
