Title: Moduli of finite flat group schemes with descent
Speaker: Brandon Levin
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

In Kisin's work on modularity lifting, he resolves flat deformation rings by a moduli space of finite flat group schemes. The geometry of this resolution can be related to local models of Shimura varieties. I will discuss a generalization of this story to potentially flat Galois deformation rings. Time permitting I will also discuss how this relates to the moduli spaces of local Galois representations constructed by Matt Emerton and Toby Gee. This is joint work with Ana Caraiani.
