Grothendieck duality and base change by Brian Conrad( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grothendieck's duality theory for coherent cohomology is a fundamental tool in algebraic geometry and number theory, in areas ranging from the moduli of curves to the arithmetic theory of modular forms. Presented is a systematic overview of the entire theory, including many basic definitions and a detailed study of duality on curves, dualizing sheaves, and Grothendieck's residue symbol. Along the way proofs are given of some widely used foundational results which are not proven in existing treatments of the subject, such as the general base change compatibility of the trace map for proper Cohen-Macaulay morphisms (e.g., semistable curves). This should be of interest to mathematicians who have some familiarity with Grothendieck's work and wish to understand the details of this theory
Arithmetic algebraic geometry by Brian Conrad( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles in this volume are expanded versions of lectures delivered at the Graduate Summer School and at the Mentoring Program for Women in Mathematics held at the Institute for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute. The theme of the program was arithmetic algebraic geometry. The choice of lecture topics was heavily influenced by the recent spectacular work of Wiles on modular elliptic curves and Fermat's Last Theorem. The main emphasis of the articles in the volume is on elliptic curves, Galois representations, and modular forms. One lecture series offers an introduction to these
Complex multiplication and lifting problems by Ching-Li Chai( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abelian varieties with complex multiplication lie at the origins of class field theory, and they play a central role in the contemporary theory of Shimura varieties. They are special in characteristic 0 and ubiquitous over finite fields. This book explores the relationship between such abelian varieties over finite fields and over arithmetically interesting fields of characteristic 0 via the study of several natural CM lifting problems which had previously been solved only in special cases. In addition to giving complete solutions to such questions, the authors provide numerous examples to illustrate the general theory and present a detailed treatment of many fundamental results and concepts in the arithmetic of abelian varieties, such as the Main Theorem of Complex Multiplication and its generalizations, the finer aspects of Tate's work on abelian varieties over finite fields, and deformation theory. This book provides an ideal illustration of how modern techniques in arithmetic geometry (such as descent theory, crystalline methods, and group schemes) can be fruitfully combined with class field theory to answer concrete questions about abelian varieties. It will be a useful reference for researchers and advanced graduate students at the interface of number theory and algebraic geometry. -- Provided by publisher
Pseudo-reductive groups by Brian Conrad( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pseudo-reductive groups arise naturally in the study of general smooth linear algebraic groups over non-perfect fields and have many important applications. This self-contained monograph provides a comprehensive treatment of the theory of pseudo-reductive groups and gives their classification in a usable form. The authors present numerous new results and also give a complete exposition of Tits' structure theory of unipotent groups. They prove the conjugacy results (conjugacy of maximal split tori, minimal pseudo-parabolic subgroups, maximal split unipotent subgroups) announced by Armand Borel and Jacques Tits, and also give the Bruhat decomposition, of general smooth connected algebraic groups. Researchers and graduate students working in any related area, such as algebraic geometry, algebraic group theory, or number theory, will value this book as it develops tools likely to be used in tackling other problems"--
Classification of pseudo-reductive groups by Brian Conrad( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the earlier monograph Pseudo-reductive Groups, Brian Conrad, Ofer Gabber, and Gopal Prasad explored the general structure of pseudo-reductive groups. In this new book, Classification of Pseudo-reductive Groups, Conrad and Prasad go further to study the classification over an arbitrary field. An isomorphism theorem proved here determines the automorphism schemes of these groups. The book also gives a Tits-Witt type classification of isotropic groups and displays a cohomological obstruction to the existence of pseudo-split forms. Constructions based on regular degenerate quadratic forms and new techniques with central extensions provide insight into new phenomena in characteristic 2, which also leads to simplifications of the earlier work. A generalized standard construction is shown to account for all possibilities up to mild central extensions. The results and methods developed in Classification of Pseudo-reductive Groups will interest mathematicians and graduate students who work with algebraic groups in number theory and algebraic geometry in positive characteristic
Autour des schémas en groupes : group schemes, a celebration of SGA3 by Sylvain Brochard( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 1 "contains the first part of the lecture notes of the Summer school 'Group Schemes, introduction to the SGA3 seminar of Demazure-Grothendieck, ' which was held at the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM) at Luminy in September 2011. This summer school was devoted to the theory of group schemes and especially of reductive group schemes. The contributions in this first part are expanded versions of the talks introducing Grothendieck topologies (S. Brochard), group schemes of multiplicative type (J. Oesterlé) and reductive group schemes (B. Conrad)."
Pseudo-reductive groups by Brian Conrad( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pseudo-reductive groups arise naturally in the study of general smooth linear algebraic groups over non-perfect fields and have many important applications. This monograph provides a comprehensive treatment of the theory of pseudo-reductive groups and gives their classification in a usable form. In this second edition there is new material on relative root systems and Tits systems for general smooth affine groups, including the extension to quasi-reductive groups of famous simplicity results of Tits in the semisimple case. Chapter 9 has been completely rewritten to describe and classify pseudo-split absolutely pseudo-simple groups with a non-reduced root system over arbitrary fields of characteristic 2 via the useful new notion of 'minimal type' for pseudo-reductive groups. Researchers and graduate students working in related areas, such as algebraic geometry, algebraic group theory, or number theory will value this book, as it develops tools likely to be used in tackling other problems"--

Zero-distribution and size of the Riemann zeta-function on the critical line by Maksym Radziwill( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We investigate the analytic properties of the Riemann zeta-function. We focus on the average size of the Riemann zeta-function on the critical line and on the vertical distribution of its zeros on the critical line
Relèvements de représentations galoisiennes à valeurs dans des groupes algébriques by Auguste Hoang Duc( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Let 1 -> N -> H -> H' -> 1 be an exact sequence of algebraic groups over Q_p^alg and F be a number field. Given a Galois representation r' : Gal_F -> H', we are interested in its lifts with values in H through the morphism H -> H'. We say a lift r : Gal_F -> H is minimal, if it is unramied at places where r' is unramified and is de Rham/semi-stable/crystalline at p-adic places if r' is so. In this thesis, we prove the existence of such minimal lifts in some cases
P-adic Hodge theory in rigid analytic families by Rebecca Michal Bellovin( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this thesis, we study p-adic Hodge theory in rigid analytic families. Roughly speaking, p-adic Hodge theory is the study of p-adic representations of p-adic Galois groups. One introduces certain p-adic period rings B, such as B_{HT}, B_{dR}, B_{st}, and B_{cris}, and uses them to define functors D_B(.) from the category of p-adic Galois representations to various categories of linear algebra data. In the first half of this thesis, we study generalizations of these functors to families of p-adic Galois representations with rigid analytic coefficients. We prove that the functors D_{HT}(.) and D_{dR}(.) are coherent sheaves, and we prove that the B-admissible locus is a closed subspace of the base. In the second half of this thesis, we study the linear algebra data which arises from families of potentially semi-stable Galois representations valued in a connected reductive group G. We prove that for any G, the moduli space of linear algebra data is reduced and locally a complete intersection, and we deduce that potentially semi-stable deformation rings are generically smooth and equi-dimensional
Controlling ramification in number fields by Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis focuses on two aspects of limited ramification and is split up into two independent sections. The first section (which comprises the second and third chapters) is on the distribution of class groups of cyclic cubic fields. We propose an explanation for the discrepancy between the observed number of cyclic cubics whose 2-class group is C_2 x C_2 and the number predicted by the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics, in terms of an invariant living in a quotient of the Schur multiplier group. We also show that, in some cases, the definition of the invariant can be simplified greatly, and we compute 10^5 examples. The second section (which comprises the fourth and fifth chapters) discusses branched covers of algebraic curves, especially covers of elliptic curves with one branch point. We produce some techniques that allow us to write down explicit equations for such maps, and then we give examples of number fields which arise from such covers. Finally, we present some possibilities for future works that the author hopes to pursue
G-valued flat deformations and local models by Brandon William Allen Levin( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We construct resolutions of G-valued local Galois deformation rings by moduli spaces of Kisin modules with G-structure when l = p. This generalizes Mark Kisin's work on potentially semi-stable deformation rings. In the case of flat deformations, we prove a structural result about these resolutions which relates the connected components of G-valued flat deformation rings to the connected components of projective varieties in characteristic p, which are moduli spaces of linear algebra data. As a key step in the study of these resolutions, we prove a full faithfulness result in integral p-adic Hodge theory. We also generalize results of Pappas and Zhu on local models of Shimura varieties to groups arising from Weil restrictions

Equivariant torsion and base change by Michael Lipnowski( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Cheeger-Muller theorem provides a spectral means of obtaining information about torsion in the cohomology of compact manifolds. Using this remarkable theorem together with trace formula comparisons, we prove comparisons between torsion in the cohomology of two manifolds of arithmetic origin related by base change
Moduli spaces of PT-stable objects by Chieh-Cheng Lo( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We develop techniques for performing semistable reduction on a flat family of objects in the heart of a t-structure on the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves of a smooth projective three-fold. Then we show that, with respect to Bayer's PT-stability function, the semistable objects in the heart of perverse sheaves form a proper Artin stack of finite type, provided the rank is nonzero, and the rank and degree are coprime
Some problems in multiplicative number theory by Junsoo Ha( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Let q be a power of a prime p. In the first part of this thesis, we establish the upper bound of the least prime primitive root mod q by p^3.1. We say a polynomial in F_q [T] is m-smooth if all of its irreducible factors are of degree less than or equal to m. Let N(n, m) be the number of solutions to the polynomial equation X+Y=2Z where all variables are m-smooth polynomials of degree n. In the second part of this thesis, we establish a lower bound on N(n, m) when (8+d) log_q n <= m <= n^1/2 for small d, and prove the analog of the xyz conjecture of Lagarias and Soundararajan in the polynomial rings over finite fields
