The Kuga-Satake construction.

Thursday, December 7, 2017 -
12:30pm to 1:30pm
The Kuga-Satake construction associates an abelian variety (the Kuga-Satake variety) to certain weight two Hodge structure, for example the second cohomology group of a K3 surface. I will discuss the construction, and its applications to the Weil conjecture, the Hodge conjecture, and the Tate conjecture (related to K3 surfaces).
