BUNTES: Complex Multiplication
Fall 2020 BUNTES will cover the topic
of Complex Multiplication of Abelian Varieties. Due to
the world being on lock-down, all meetings will take place
on Zoom. Furthermore, instead of the usual format of having
2 hour talks, the ''speaker'' will instead function as an informed
discussion leader who will have read up on the designated topic
beforehand and prepared a short 15 to 30 min talk followed by
The first half of the semester will be focused on complex multiplication of elliptic curves with a focus on explicit class field theory and galois representations. We will then transition to the higher dimensional case of abelian varieties.
The main references will be Silverman's Advanced Topics in the Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves [Silv] for the first half and Milne's notes on Complex Multiplication [MilneCM] for the latter half. We will also be using [MilneAV], [Rubin], and [SilvI].
Meeting Times: Wednesday, 11:30 AM Eastern Time.
