Title: Goncharov conjectures and functional equations for polylogarithms
Speaker: Daniil Rudenko
Speaker Info: HSE, Moscow
Classical polylogarithms and functional equations which these functions satisfy have been studied since the beginning of the 19th century. Nevertheless, the structure of these equations is still understood very poorly. I will explain an approach to this subject, based on the link between polylogarithms and mixed Tate motives.Date: Tuesday, February 23, 2016
A substantial part of the talk will be devoted to the explanation of this link, provided by Goncharov Conjectures. After that, I will present some results about functional equations which can be proved unconditionally.
