Title: Product formula for p-adic epsilon factors
Date: Tue, Jun 21, 2011, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: In the Lafforgue's proof of Langlands' program for function field, he used so called the product formula for epsilon factors, which was proven by Laumon in 80's.
In the first part of my lecture, I will talk about what Langlands' program is and what product formula is roughly saying.
For the second part, I'll state rather detailed statement of my recent result, a product formula for p-adic epsilon factors,
jointly with A. Marmora, and sketch the proof.
