Dr. Siman Wong*
Automorphic Forms and Ideal Class Groups
Ideal class groups play a crucial role in the study of integer
solutions of diophantine equations. We will explain such
connections, and describe some recent advances on these problems
obtained by combining techniques from algebraic number theory with
the theory of automorphic forms.
*Dr. Wong is a candidate for a position in our department.
All faculty are urged to attend this lecture.
Refreshments will be served in Math Annex Room 1115, 3:15 p.m.
