"On fake projective
A fake projective plane is a smooth complex surface which has
the same Betti numbers as the complex projective plane but not
hiholomorphic to it. These are surfaces with the smallest
characteristic among smooth surfaces of general type.The first
was constructed by Mumford and a few more were found later.
goal of the talk is to explain the recent work of Prasad and
on classification and construction of fake projectiveplanes in each
The final result is a consequence of techniques in geometry, number
algebraic groups and computational methods. We will also mention
further studies and generalization of the results.
