Irregular Lifts, Part II
This is the global counterpart to the last post. I was going to write this post in a more general setting, but the annoyances of general reductive groups got the better of me. Suppose we fix the following: A number … Continue reading

Irregular Lifts, Part I
This post motivated in part by the recent preprint of Fakhruddin, Khare, and Patrikis, and also by Matt’s number theory seminar at Chicago this week. (If you are interested in knowing what the calendar is for the Chicago number theory … Continue reading
Abandonware
For a young mathematician, there is a lot of pressure to publish (or perish). The role of forprofit academic publishing is to publish large amounts of crappy mathematics papers, make a lot of money, but at least in return grant … Continue reading

Report From Berkeley
My recent trip to Berkeley did not result in a chance to test whether the Cheeseboard pizza maintained its ranking, but did give me the opportunity to attend the latest Bay Area Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry day, on a … Continue reading
The nearly ordinary deformation ring is (usually) torsion over weight space
Let be an arbitrary number field. Let be a prime which splits completely in , and consider an absolutely irreducible representation: which is unramified outside finitely many primes. If one assumes that is geometric, then the Fontaine–Mazur conjecture predicts that … Continue reading
Is Serre’s conjecture still open?
The conjecture in this paper has indeed been proven. But that isn’t the entire story. Serre was fully aware of Katz modular forms of weight one. However, Serre was too timid was prudently conservative and made his conjecture only for … Continue reading
A public service announcement concerning FontaineMazur for GL(1)
There’s a rumour going around that results from transcendence theory are required to prove the FontaineMazur conjecture for . This is not correct. In Serre’s book on adic representations, he defines a adic representation of a global Galois group to … Continue reading
