Computational Algebra Seminar: Roberts -- Motivic Computations in Magma

Location: Carslaw 535
Time: 15:00
Name: David Roberts
Affiliation: University of Minnesota - Morris
Title: Motivic Computations in Magma
Abstract:
I will begin with an informal presentation of motives and their associated
L-series, with no technical prerequisites.   I will  next discuss Magma’s
current functionality in this context, including its ability to compute
L-series of hypergeometric motives except for problematic factors associated
with wild ramification.  I will conclude by giving a new example illustrating
a general method for computing these problematic factors.
