The period-index conjecture for abelian threefolds
Alexander Perry, Department of Mathematics, University of Michigan,

The period-index conjecture asks for a precise bound on one measure of complexity of a Brauer class (its index) in terms of another (its period). I will discuss joint work with James Hotchkiss which proves this conjecture for Brauer classes on abelian threefolds.
