Friedrich-Hirzebruch-Kolloquium: Prof. Dr. Annette Huber-Klawitter, News on period numbers
Donnerstag, 06.12.2018 16:00 im Raum M5
Period numbers are complex numbers obtained by
integrating a differential form with rational coefficients over a
suitable domain of integration, also defined over the algebraic numbers.
They are obiquitous in mathematics. Examples are \pi, \log(2), \zeta(3).
Their transcendence properties are the object of long-standing
conjectures. We report on joint work with Wüstholz, finally settling the
case of 1-forms.
