Zijian Yao "The Breuil--Mezard conjecture for function fields. "
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Speaker: Zijian Yao (Harvard) Abstract: Let K be a nonarchimedean local field of characteristic l, F be a finite field of characteristic p, and r be continuous mod p representation of G_K. When l = p, and K = Q_p, the Breuil-Mezard conjecture relates the geometry of the mod p reduction of the universal deformation ring of r to mod p reduction of representations of GL_n(O_K). In this talk, I will formulate an analog of the conjecture when K is local function field, and l different from p, which asks for compatibility between inertia local Langlands correspondence and a certain mod p inertia local Langlands correspondence. I will then sketch a proof using the Taylor--Wiles--Kisin patching method.
Ziquan Zhuang "Birational superrigidity and K-stability"
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Speaker: Ziquan Zhuang, Princeton Abstract: Birational superrigidity and K-stability are properties of Fano varieties that have many interesting geometric implications. For instance, birational superrigidity implies non-rationality and K-stability is related to the existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics. Nonetheless, both properties are hard to verify in general. In this talk, I will first explain how to relate birational superrigidity to K-stability using alpha invariants; I will then outline a method of proving birational superrigidity that works quite well with most families of index one Fano complete intersections and thereby also verify their K-stability. This is partly based on joint work with Charlie Stibitz and Yuchen Liu.
