`Period integrals, central critical L-values, and their local analogue'


Dipendra Prasad

(Tata Institute and ISA)

Abstract: In this talk I will look at several cases of current interest where one considers integral
of automorphic forms on subvarieties, andrelates it to certain L-values. We will also look at the
 local analogueof these notions which is the classical problem of Branching Laws.
