QuébecVermont Number Theory Seminar 20062007
Schedule: Fall,
Winter.
General Information.
Organizers: Eyal Goren and Henri Darmon.
Explanations for schedule:
This year the QuebecVermont Number Theory seminar will be meeting every
other week, on Thursdays. Typically the first lecture
will be in the morning from 10:30 to 12:00 at McGill in room 920,
and the afternoon lecture from 2:15 to 3:45 at Concordia.
But be sure to check the detailed schedule below for possible
exceptions to the rule!
Scientific program: The QuebecVermont seminar in
the fall semester will be largely (albeit not exclusively)
devoted to Richard Taylor's proof of the
SatoTate conjecture. There will be several lectures
aimed at helping graduate students and faculty acquire the necessary background,
building up to the two lectures by Richard Taylor on November 30.
A related activity:
JeanPierre Serre will give a minicourse from September 6 to October 6
on "cohomological invariants"
which will meet twice a week (probably on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.)
Although not part of the number theory seminar,
this should be of interest to all the students in the number theory group.
