Title: Unobstructed deformation problems for GSp(4)
Speaker: Tom Weston
Speaker Info: University of Massachusetts
Brief Description:
Special Note: The speaker will give a preseminar talk for graduate students at 11 am in Lunt 104.

We study universal deformation rings of Galois representations attached to automorphic forms. The goal is to show that such universal deformation rings are usually power series rings. We will discuss the general approach which we apply to the cases of GL(2) and GSp(4). (The latter case is work in progress with Michael Broshi and Claus Sorensen.)
