Arithmetic Study Group: Period integrals and special values of L-functions

Presented by Andrew Corbett, University of Bristol

22 November 2016 14:00 in CM301

In many ways L-functions have been seen to contain interesting arithmetic information; evaluating at special points can make this connection very explicit. In this talk we shall ask what information is contained in central values of certain automorphic L-functions, in the spirit of the Gan--Gross--Prasad conjectures, and report on recent progress. We also describe some surprising applications in analytic number theory regarding the `size' of a modular form.
