Title: Endoscopic forms and the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture
Speaker: Jack Thorne
Speaker Info: Harvard University
Special Note: There will be an introductory preseminar talk 2:00-2:45 in 101 Annenberg Hall.
Recent years have seen great progress in the understanding of the Galois representations associated to unitary groups over CM fields. I will discuss an automorphy lifting theorem in this setting for l-adic Galois representations which are residually reducible, and give an application to the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture for U(3).Date: Monday, October 03, 2011
