Scholze on Torsion, Part IV
This is a continuation of Part I, Part II, and Part III. I was planning to start talking about Chapter IV, instead, this will be a very soft introduction to a few lines on page 72. At this point, we … Continue reading
Scholze on Torsion, Part III
This is a continuation of Part I and Part II. Before I continue along to section V.3, I want to discuss an approach to the problem of constructing Galois representations from the preScholze days. Let’s continue with the same notation … Continue reading

Scholze on Torsion, Part II
This is a sequel to Part I. Section V.1: Today we will talk about Chapter V. We will start with Theorem V.1.4. This is basically a summary of the construction of Galois representations in the RACSDC case, which follows, for … Continue reading

Scholze on Torsion 0
This will be the first zeroth of a series of posts talking about Scholze’s recent preprint, available here. This is mathematics which will, no question, have more impact in number theory than any recent paper I can think of. The … Continue reading

Bad Headlines, and Schoenberg Redux
A bad headline can go a good way towards making an otherwise interesting article seem condescending or off point. Slate seems particularly inept (or adept, depending on the intention) in choosing titles, a characteristic which must be particularly irritating for … Continue reading
