Euler systems for Rankin-Selberg convolutions and generalisations

Joint IAS/Princeton University Number Theory Seminar
Topic:Euler systems for Rankin-Selberg convolutions and generalisations
Speaker:Sarah Zerbes
Affiliation:University College London
Date:Thursday, February 25
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine 214, Princeton University

I will give an overview of my work with Antonio Lei, David Loeffler and Guido Kings about the construction of an Euler system for Rankin-Selberg convolutions of modular forms and its arithmetic applications. I will then discuss generalisations of this approach for constructing Euler systems for more general reductive groups. This is work in progress with David and Chris Skinner.
