Title: Large values of eigenfunctions on hyperbolic manifolds
Speaker: Simon Marshall
Speaker Info: University of Wisconsin
Brief Description:
Special Note:

It is a folklore conjecture that the sup norm of a Laplace eigenfunction on a compact hyperbolic surface grows more slowly than any positive power of the eigenvalue. In dimensions three and higher, this was shown to be false by Iwaniec-Sarnak and Donnelly. I will present joint work with Farrell Brumley that strengthens these results, and extends them to locally symmetric spaces associated to SO(n, m). The proof relies on a distinction principle for automorphic periods, involving the theta lift to Sp_{2m}.
