Title:Ranks of abelian varieties in towers of function fields
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Yuri Zarhin, Penn State University
Abstract:
We discuss explicit examples of abelian varieties of bounded rank in infinite towers of function fields of characteristic zero. In many cases we are able to compute the rank at every layer of the tower. This is a report on a joint work with Douglas Ulmer (Georgia Tech).
