Title: Modular forms on exceptional groups
Speaker: Aaron Pollack
Speaker Info: Duke University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Suppose that G is a reductive group over the rationals with an exceptional Dynkin type, which is either split G_2 or a form of F_4, E_6, E_7, E_8 with real rank 4. Then G supports a very special class of automorphic functions--the so-called modular forms--whose study was initiated by Gross-Wallach and Gan-Gross-Savin. I will define these objects and explain what is known about them.
