Bora Yalkinoglu: Introduction to p-adic Bost-Connes systems
Bora Yalkinoglu will give a talk entitled: Introduction to p-adic Bost-Connes systems.
Abstract: In this talk we want to give a gentle introduction into the recently emerging theory of p-adic Bost-Connes systems. In the first part of the talk, after reviewing the necessary background from p-adic analysis and number theory, we will explain recent work of Connes and Consani on certain p-adic representations of the classical BC-system. In the second part of the talk we will discuss recent work on generalizations of the work of Connes and Consani and, further, point out several open problems for further research.
