Modular forms, quaternion algebras, and special values of L-functions

Publication Type:

Thesis

Authors:

Daghigh, H.

Abstract:

Let f be a cusp form of weight 2 and level N. Let K be an imaginary quadratic field of discriminant - D, and d an ideal class of K. We obtain precise formulas for the special values of the L-functions associated to the Rankin convolution off and a theta series associated to the ideal class A, in terms of the Petersson scalar product of f with the theta series associated to an Eichler order in a positive definite quaternion algebra. Our work is an extension of the work done by Gross [7] il. The central tools used in this thesis are Rankin's method and a reformulation of Gross of work of Waldspurger concerning central critical values.

Abstract: 
In the talk, I will show how to extract exponentially decaying eigenfunctions out of the basic and standard single energy multiscale analysis introduced by Frohlich and Spencer in 1983. There will be much more.

Nodal lines for random eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on the torus

Igor Wigman (CRM and McGill)

Abstract: 
We study the volume of nodal sets for eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on the standard torus in two or more dimensions. We consider a sequence of eigenvalues \normalsize 4\pi^2\lambda with growing multiplicity \normalsize N\to\infty, and compute the expectation and variance of the volume of the nodal set with respect to a Gaussian probability measure on the eigenspaces. We show that the expected volume of the nodal set is \normalsize const\sqrt{\lambda}. Our main result is that the variance of the volume normalized by \normalsize \sqrt{\lambda} is bounded by \normalsize O(1/\sqrt{N}), so that the normalized volume has vanishing fluctuations as we increase the dimension of the eigenspace.
