Motivic zeta functions and the monodromy conjecture
Linfoot Number Theory Seminar
17th November 2021, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Fry Building, Room 2.04
In this talk we deal witht the motivic zeta function attached to Calabi-Yau varieties defined over a field K endowed with an ultrametric absolute value. I will explain what does it mean for a formal series with coefficients in the Grothendieck ring of varieties to be rational and how poles are defined. I will finally discuss the monodromy conjecture that relates those poles with the action of the absolute Galois group of K on the (étale) cohomology of X.
