Analytic theory of GL(3) automorphic forms and applications

Description:
------------
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, has the goal of providing
a description of GL_3 automorphic forms and their L-functions
amenable to analytic number theorists and to explain the various
approaches available to perform harmonic analysis on these spaces.
A second objective will be to discuss the extension of some of the
important tools existing in the GL_2 theory to the GL_3 context:
a typical example is Kuznetzov's formula. A third objective will
be to list some important problems known for GL_2 and to identify
the main obstructions to the extension of these to GL_3: typical
problems are non-vanishing problems for central values of L-functions
and subconvexity problem. To achieve these goals we plan to bring
together analytic number theorists and specialists from the theory
of automorphic forms and related fields who are interested in
analytic questions.
The workshop is organized by
Henryk Iwaniec, Philippe Michel, and K. Soundararajan.

AIM Research Conference Center:
--------------------------------
The American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) hosts focused
workshops in all areas of the mathematical sciences. AIM
focused workshops are distinguished by their emphasis on
a specific mathematical goal, such as making progress on a
significant unsolved problem, understanding the proof of an
important new result, or investigating the convergence between
two distinct areas of mathematics.
