 Title: A cohomological approach to Serre's Minkowski-style bounds Speaker: Giovanni Di Matteo (06) Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon (forthcoming) Lyon, France Abstract: In recent years, Serre has adapted a classical theorem of Minkowski to give bounds for the ℓ-valuation of |G(k)|, where G is a reductive group or semi-simple of inner type. It was observed by Serre that these bounds may be recovered from ℓ-adic cohomology. We illuminate the cohomological approach in the case of G = GLn. Location: Palenske 227 Date: 8/27/2009 Time: 3:10
