Title:Computations with L-functions, and rank 4 twists
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Mark Watkins, University of Sydney
Abstract:
I will first describe some general facts about computing with L-functions, looking at what is known here, and what uses this has. Then I will describe in more detail some specific work that has come out of a Focused Research Group grant from the NSF, particularly some experiments with rank 4 twists of the congruent number curve, and some eta-quotient relations with Waldspurger lifts of various modular forms.
