Ritt Lectures, Fall 2016, by Prof. Zhiwei Yun

The fallĀ 2016 Ritt Lectures, by Prof. Zhiwei Yun, will take place December 15 & 16. Prof. Yun (Yale University), will deliver a two talk series titled:

“Geometry in orbital integrals and beyond”

Abstract: In the first lecture, I will give an overview of geometric
methods involved in computing important quantities in the theory of
automorphic forms, namely orbital integrals. I will mention
applications to various versions of the fundamental lemma. In the
second lecture, I will talk about my joint work with Wei Zhang on
generalizing the Gross-Zagier and Waldspurger formulae to higher
derivatives of L-functions for function fields, whose proof relies on
extending the geometric ideas mentioned in the first talk.
