2005-06 Number Theory Learning Seminar
Organized by Brian Conrad and Chris Skinner
This year's topic is Serre's conjecture.
Our goal is to get an understanding of the workings
of Khare's proof in level 1, and more importantly
of a sizable chunk of the serious background inputs that
he uses in his proof (such as work of Taylor, Ramakrishna,
and others, as well as more standard background
in Galois cohomology, Galois representations, and arithmetic
geometry). There are some excellent references, so
most talks will not be written up. However, in some
cases it may be decided to write up a few of the topics.
