Computational Algebra Seminar: Voight -- Constructing nonsolvable number fields ramified only at small primes
Speaker: John Voight (Vermont)
Title: Constructing nonsolvable number fields ramified only at small primes
Time & Place: 3-4pm, Thursday 21 may, Carslaw 535
Abstract: We use explicit methods for computing in the cohomology of
a Shimura curve to compute spaces of Hilbert modular forms.
As a consequence, we construct nonsolvable finite extensions of the
rational numbers ramified only at 3 and 5, respectively.
This is joint work with Matthew Greenberg and Lassina Dembele.
