Iwasawa Theory over Function Fields of Characteristic p>0 and Drinfeld Modules and L-functions, Bellaterra, Spain

ARGOMENTI: International Area

The Workshop on Iwasawa Theory over Function Fields of Characteristic p>0, which will take place from April 6 to 10, 2010 and the Advanced Course and Workshop on Drinfeld Modules and L-functions, which will take place from April 12 to 16, 2010, both at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra.

The main focuses of the workshops are Iwasawa theory and Characteristic p L-functions. Both topics have seen important advances in recent years, and of course they are strictly linked and help to the understanding of each other: thus the two workshops should be regarded as part 1 and part 2 of an activity having essentially one single scope.

Goal of the first workshop is to present the last advances in Iwasawa theory over function fields and related subjects, such as the geometric Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, and to bring together experts.

The second workshop centers around L-functions and zeta values, with emphasis on the recent developments in the characteristic p theory.

Important deadlines are February 5 (grant applications) and March 10
(registration and payment).

A registration form to both activities is available.
