Advanced Course on Shimura Varieties and L-functions

Saturday, October 17, 2009 - 10:00pm to Friday, October 23, 2009 - 9:59pm

The Advanced Course consists of two series of lectures, delivered by S. W. Zhang (Columbia) and by Bas Edixhoven (Leiden University) and Andrei Yafaev (University College London), respectively. The aim of the lectures of S. W. Zhang is to give a comprehensive description of some recent work of the author and his students on generalisations of the Gross-Zagier formula, Euler systems on Shimura curves and rational points on elliptic curves. The aim of the course delivered by B. Edixhoven and A. Yafaev is to give an introduction to the proof (under the generalised Riemann hypothesis) of the so-called Andre-Oort conjecture by Yafaev, Klingler and Ullmo.
