Title: Goncharov conjectures and functional equations for polylogarithms
Speaker: Daniil Rudenko
Speaker Info: HSE, Moscow
Brief Description:
Special Note:

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.

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.
