Parent event:

Conference "Modular forms are everywhere" Certain congruences between truncated hypergeometric polynomials and unit roots

of their associated motives appear to hold to higher powers of primes than expected.

We will discuss how this phenomenon, generally known as supercongruences, is tied

to Hodge theory and is more widespread than previously thought. This is joint work

with D. Roberts.
