Bar-Ilan Algebra Seminar =========================================== Date: Wednesday, 9 Sivan 5772 // May 30, 2012 Time: 10:30 am promptly Place: Third floor seminar room, Mathematics building Speaker: Prof. Gabor Wiese (University of Luxembourg) Title: On modular Galois representations modulo prime powers Abstract: In the talk we motivate the study of modular Galois representations modulo prime powers by a natural number theoretic question. We go on to state and explain a result, obtained together with Imin Chen and Ian Kiming, about removing powers of p from the level of a Hecke eigenform modulo p^m, at the expense of working with so-called dc-weak eigenforms (dc = divided congruences). ============================================== The annual meeting of the Israel Mathematical Union will take place at Bar-Ilan this year on Monday, 7 Sivan / May 28. All lectures will be in building 507.
