## Upcoming Talks

Abstracts of upcoming talks at the MPIM. For an overview see also the calendar.

## Recent developments in Quantum Topology -- Cancelled --

We will review the basics of quantum topology such as the colored Jones polynomial of a knot, its standard conjectures relating to asymptotics, arithmeticity and modularity, as well as the recent quantum hyperbolic invariants of Kashaev et al, their state-integrals and their structural properties. The course is aimed to be accessible by graduate students and young researchers.

## Exponential Sum Reading Seminar - Organizational meeting

We are excited to announce a semester-long reading seminar on the exponential sum over finite fields. Throughout the seminar, participants will delve into the interaction of analytic number theory and arithmetic geometry. Specifically, we will learn Stepanov's “elementary” method to prove Weil’s Conjecture for curves over finite fields. We kindly invite all Ph.D students and postdocs who are interested in this topic.

## Quantum Steenrod operations of symplectic resolutions

I will consider the quantum connection of symplectic resolutions, which is of interest in representation theory and more recently in symplectic topology. I will explain its relationship in positive characteristic with the quantum Steenrod power operations of Fukaya and Wilkins. The relationship provides a geometric understanding of the p-curvature of such connections, while also allowing new computations for quantum Steenrod operations, including the case of the Springer resolution.

## Recurring seminars, series and courses

Detailed list of recurring seminars, series of talks, and courses or lectures comprising multiple talks. For an overview see also the calendar.

## Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture

The annual Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture is a series of lectures started in 2007 on the occasion of the 80th birthday of Prof. Friedrich Hirzebruch. The lectures address a general audience and aim at illustrating the relation between mathematics and art, society and other fields.

## MPI-Oberseminar

The Oberseminar is a very long running seminar at MPI (‘Ober‘ standing for 'upper'). Its idea is that the guests of the MPI speak in this seminar (hopefully early in their stay) and get the chance to explain their work to the other guests.

## Central simple representations and superelliptic jacobians

Let p be an odd prime and f(x) a polynomial of degree at least 5 with complex coefficients and without repeated roots. Suppose that all the coefficients of f(x) lie in a subfield K such that:

1) K contains a primitive p-th root of unity;

2) f(x) is irreducible over K;

3) the Galois group Gal(f) acts doubly transitively on the set of roots of f(x);
