Number Theory Seminar

4:00pm to 5:00pm
The talk will start with the classical Selberg trace formula. Then we will speak the adelic language and introduce the framework of the relative trace formula based on a concrete example: the Jacquet-Rallis trace formula. After the preparation we are ready to talk about a new relative formula which can be seen as a section" of the Jacquet-Rallis trace formula. We give an asymptotic computation of the geometric side. Consequently, we obtain interesting information of L-functions on U(3)\times U(2). This is joint work with Philippe Michel and Dinakar Ramakrishnan.
