IRTG-Seminar WS 2017/2018

This semester we will have two meetings with the IRTG-Seminar. The first one will take place in Saarbrücken, the second one in Kaiserslautern.


First Meeting: Friday, November 24th 2017, Saarbrücken, Hörsaal IV, Geb. E2 4.

14:00 - 14:50Carlo SircanaOn the construction of number fields with
solvable Galois group
15:00 - 15:50Felix LeidRandom Matrix Models and Topological Recursion
16:00 - 16:50Ruwen HollenbachGroups of Lie type and the Malle-Robinson
Abstracts of the first meeting
Carlos talk: We will deal with the problem of constructing extensions of the rationals with a given solvable Galois group. It is well know that, given a solvable group, there exists an extension of the rationals with such a group as Galois group (Shafarevich, 1954) but the proof does not give a method to find such an extension. Class field theory gives a tool to construct these fields and we will
discuss some of the main issues of this approach.

Second Meeting: Wednesday, February 7th 2018, Kaiserslautern
