Seminar in geometry : Arithmetic monodromy groups and quadratic forms over Q.

By Scott Thomson  (University of Bern)

I will describe how monodromy groups of the hypergeometric differential equation can give rise to quadratic forms over the rational integers.  By computing invariants of these quadratic forms, we can say something about commensurabilities among these monodromy groups.

Organization Marc Troyanov et Louis Merlin
