Wednesday, May 17, 11:00 a.m. Jeffery 422 - Number Theory Seminar

Speaker: Jung-Jo Lee

Title: Dirichlet series and hyperelliptic curves

Abstract: We study the number of rational points on hyperelliptic curves by studying the convergence properties of its associated Dirichlet series. This is a joint work with professor Ram Murty.


Thursday, May 18, 1:30 p.m. Jeffery 422 - Curves Seminar

Speaker: Mike Roth

Title: One-parameter criterion for stability V

Abstract: We will continue (and hopefully finish) the proof of the Hilbert-Mumford criterion for stability and semi-stability.
