Workshop on Cycles and Special Values of L-series

Saturday, December 12, 2009 - 10:00pm to Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 9:59pm

An interrelated web of conjectures, due, in rough chronological order, to Birch--Swinnerton-Dyer, Tate, Bloch--Beilinson, and Bloch--Kato,connects the arithmetic properties of algebraic cycles (taken modulo some relation, such as rational or algebraic equivalence) with the analytic properties of associated L-functions. The varieties for which we have the most explicit information --concerning the cycles that live on them, as well as their l-adic cohomology groups and attendant L-functions -- are those that can be related to automorphic forms: Shimura varieties and their relatives.
