SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Samit Dasgupta, Duke University, will be speaking.\n
\n
The
presentation topic is Stark's Conjectures
and Hilbert's 12th Problem.\n
\n
Contact
Aaron D Levin for more information.\n
\n
In
this talk we will discuss two central problems
in algebraic number theory and their interconnections:
explicit class field theory (also
known as Hilbert's 12th Problem), and the special
values of L-functions. The goal of explicit
class field theory is to describe the abelian
extensions of a ground number field via
analytic means intrinsic to the ground field.
Meanwhile, there is an abundance of conjectures
on the special values of L-functions at
certain integer points. Of these, Stark's Conjecture
has special relevance toward explicit
class field theory.\n\n
