Arithmetic Study Group: Double zeta values and modular forms

Presented by Herbert Gangl, Durham University

2 February 2016 14:00 in CM 107

There is a surprising connection linking period polynomials of modular forms for SL(2,Z) to certain distinguished relations among specific periods, the 2-variable subclass among multiple zeta values. We give an indication--on a rather elementary level--how it comes about. (Joint work with M. Kaneko and D. Zagier.)
