The method of Euler systems models L-functions of automorphic forms in terms of motivic or Galois cohomological data (Galois cohomology classes). It is a major tool in the proof of the known cases of the Bloch-Kato conjectures. The objective of the workshop is to introduce graduate students and junior researchers to the theory of Euler ...

Euler systems have been powerful tools in the study of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. As such, understanding more conceptually the constructions of Euler systems and relating these to other areas of mathematics such as representation theory could be of great interest. The goal of the conference will be to discuss novel constructions of Euler ... Read more about "Special Cycles on Shimura Varieties and Iwasawa Theory"

Electrochemistry is used widely today, spanning from production of hydrogen and metals such as aluminum and Li-ion batteries. We will discuss current and future opportunities in using electrochemistry to power cars and buildings, and to make chemicals and fuels with energy from the Sun. Design principles in controlling the interactions between surfaces and electrolytes, and ... Read more about "The Future of Electrochemistry"

Plant homeodomain (PHD) fingers, YEATS, Tudor and bromodomains are found in proteins involved in a wide array of fundamental biological processes, including transcription, replication, DNA damage repair, cell differentiation and survival. These domains comprise the largest families of epigenetic readers, capable of recognizing PTMs (posttranslational modifications) in histones. During her talk, Prof. Kutateladze will detail ...

In this talk I will begin by introducing elliptic curves and some basic questions about them. After recalling what is known in the case of elliptic curves over the rational numbers, I will discuss some new heuristics and conjectures about how the group of points grows in towers of abelian extensions. This is joint work ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Some new conjectures about abelian points on elliptic curves"
