Who proved it first?

During Joel Specter’s thesis defense, he started out by remarking that the -expansion: is a weight one modular forms of level and moreover, for prime, is equal to the number of roots of modulo minus one. He attributed this result … Continue reading

Return to Northwestern

Today I returned to Northwestern, taking part in both the communal faculty lunch and the post prandial espresso. Jared Wunsch worked his magic on the Silvia (Rancilio) to pour one of the best espressos I have had in a very … Continue reading

Hilbert Modular Forms of Partial Weight One, Part III

My student Richard Moy is graduating! Richard’s work has already appeared on this blog before, where we discussed his joint work with Joel Specter showing that there existed non-CM Hilbert modular forms of partial weight one. Today I want to … Continue reading

Meaningless numerical milestones are a good a reason as any for an indulgent post. Today, I will discuss some facts from this blog which you might not otherwise know about. It will be in the form of an (mercifully short) … Continue reading

En Passant IV

My students Richard Moy and Joel Specter have uploaded their paper on partial weight one Hilbert modular forms, previously discussed here, to the ArXiv. Germany now leads the world in both soccer and perfectoid spaces. This is a recipe for … Continue reading

Hilbert Modular Forms of Partial Weight One, Part II

Anyone who spends any time thinking about Hilbert modular forms of partial weight one — see part I — should, at some point, wonder whether there actually exist any examples, besides the “trivial” examples arising as inductions of Grossencharacters. Fred … Continue reading
