I will discuss how one can formulate and prove a non-Archimedean Berkovich space analogue of the classical formula dd

In this talk we will begin by recalling Shimura's result on the algebraicity of CM values of certain nonholomorphic (Shimura-Maass) derivatives of modular forms. We will then introduce the p-adic upper half plane and rigid analytic modular forms. Finally we will introduce an analogue of the Shimura-Maass operator for rigid analytic modular forms, and state a p-adic version of Shimura's classical theorem.

In the this talk we will discuss some results, proved in joint works with Murre, on the Galois symbols modulo an odd prime p, on the Albanese kernel of E x E, E an elliptic curve over a number field F or a local completion. These symbols take values in the second Galois cohomology group H

Chow-Heegner points, as are being actively pursed by Darmon, Rotger, et al., are quite general. In this talk, we consider a special case that has a simple concrete description due to Shouwu Zhang. Given a pair E, F of elliptic curves, and a fixed choice of maps X

The closest parking is at the Hahn parking lot. Parking is free and no permit is required on Saturdays, as long as you park in a legal parking space and do not block emergency access, or park in spaces that are posted and reserved for special use.
There is a foot bridge that connects the Hahn parking lot to McHenry Library.
If you click on this map and zoom out one level, the bridge is indicated by a
dotted line. Halfway through the bridge, there is a path that leads to the left, but you want to ignore this path and continue straight until the
end of the bridge. After crossing the bridge, make a sharp left slightly downhill to enter the building at the
first level. (The main entrance is actually on the second level, so if you enter here you will have to take
the elevator down one level.)

There is no formal registration, but if you plan to attend, we would appreciate an email to sdasgup2 at ucsc dot edu to
help plan the event, especially if you plan to attend the dinner afterwards.

There will be a dinner following the conference, at 6pm at "I Love Sushi", 516 Front St, in downtown Santa Cruz.
