Pure Maths Colloquium: Ramification filtration of the Galois group of a local field

Presented by "Victor Abrashkin (University of Durham, Durham)",

6 November 2000 16:00 in CM221

The topological group structure of the absolute Galois group of a local 1-dimensional field is relatively simple and almost does not depend on this field; but it has an additional structure given by its decreasing filtration by ramification subgroups. The aim of the talk is to present a recent progress in the study of this filtration.
