Algebraic Geometry Seminar: "Fibered motives and modularity proofs"

Speaker: Vasily Golyshev, MCCME-Moscow and MPI-Bonn

Abstract: I'll give an introduction to fibered hypergeometric motives and explain how they can be used to provide opportunistic modularity proofs for conifold fibers in Calabi-Yau families.  This is a report on joint work with Don Zagier and work in progress with Kilian Bönisch and Albrecht Klemm.

Host: Matt Kerr
