Title:Quotients of Mumford curves and component groups
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Mihran Papikian, Penn State
We consider elliptic curves parametrized by Mumford curves and answer negatively a question of Ribet and Takahashi about the surjectivity of the induced maps on component groups. In case of modular curves this leads to some interesting questions about the Hecke algebra and Galois representations. (This is a joint work with Joe Rabinoff.)
