   Abstract = {© 2018 Department of Mathematics, Princeton University. In
             1980, Gross conjectured a formula for the expected leading
             term at s=0 of the Deligne-Ribet p-adic L-function
             associated to a totally even character ϕ of a totally real
             field F. The conjecture states that after scaling by
             L(ϕω-1,0), this value is equal to a p-adic regulator of
             units in the abelian extension of F cut out by ϕω-1. In

             a totally real number field, and let F⊂ K⊂ L be a tower
             of fields with L / F a finite abelian extension. Let I
             denote the kernel of the natural projection from Z[ Gal (L/

             zero of the partial zeta functions of L / F, taken
             relative to sets S and T in the usual way. Let r denote the

   Abstract = {© 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. We prove that
             the p-adic L-series of the tensor square of a p-ordinary
             modular form factors as the product of the symmetric square
             p-adic L-series of the form and a Kubota–Leopoldt p-adic
             L-series. This establishes a generalization of a conjecture
             of Citro. Greenberg’s exceptional zero conjecture for the
             adjoint follows as a corollary of our theorem. Our method of
             proof follows that of Gross, who proved a factorization
             result for the Katz p-adic L-series associated to the
             restriction of a Dirichlet character. Whereas Gross’s
             method is based on comparing circular units with elliptic
             units, our method is based on comparing these same circular
             units with a new family of units (called Beilinson–Flach
             units) that we construct. The Beilinson–Flach units are
             constructed using Bloch’s intersection theory of higher
             Chow groups applied to products of modular curves. We relate
             these units to special values of classical and p-adic
             L-functions using work of Beilinson (as generalized by
             Lei–Loeffler–Zerbes) in the archimedean case and
             Bertolini–Darmon–Rotger (as generalized by
             Kings–Loeffler–Zerbes) in the p-adic case. Central to
             our method are two compatibility theorems regarding
             Bloch’s intersection pairing and the classical and p-adic
             Beilinson regulators defined on higher Chow

   Abstract = {© Swiss Mathematical Society. We define a cocycle on
             GL<inf>n</inf>(Q) using Shintani's method. This construction
             is closely related to earlier work of Solomon and Hill, but
             differs in that the cocycle property is achieved through the
             introduction of an auxiliary perturbation vector Q. As a
             corollary of our result we obtain a new proof of a theorem
             of Diaz y Diaz and Friedman on signed fundamental domains,
             and give a cohomological reformulation of Shintani's proof
             of the Klingen-Siegel rationality theorem on partial zeta
             functions of totally real fields. Next we relate the
             Shintani cocycle to the Sczech cocycle by showing that the
             two differ by the sum of an explicit coboundary and a simple
             "polar" cocycle. This generalizes a result of Sczech and
             Solomon in the case n = 2. Finally, we introduce an integral
             version of our cocycle by smoothing at an auxiliary prime l.
             This integral refinement has strong arithmetic consequences.
             We showed in previous work that certain specializations of
             the smoothed class yield the p-adic L-functions of totally
             real fields. Furthermore, combining our cohomological
             construction with a theorem of Spiess, one deduces that that
             the order of vanishing of these p-adic L-functions is at
             least as large as the expected one.},

   Abstract = {Let F be a totally real number field of degree n, and let H
             be a finite abelian extension of F. Let p denote a prime
             ideal of F that splits completely in H. Following Brumer and
             Stark, Tate conjectured the existence of a p-unit u in H
             whose p-adic absolute values are related in a precise way to
             the partial zeta-functions of the extension H/F. Gross later
             refined this conjecture by proposing a formula for the
             p-adic norm of the element u. Recently, using methods of
             Shintani, the first author refined the conjecture further by
             proposing an exact formula for u in the p-adic completion of
             H. In this article we state and prove a function field
             analogue of this Shintani-type formula. The role of the

             curve over a finite field in which n places have been
             removed. These places represent the "real places" of F. Our
             method of proof follows that of Hayes, who proved Gross's

   Abstract = {Let K be a real quadratic field, and p a rational prime
             which is inert in K. Let a be a modular unit on Γ0(N). In
             an earlier joint article with Henri Darmon, we presented the
             definition of an element u(α, τ) ε Kpx attached to a and
             each τ ε K. We conjectured that the p-adic number u(α,
             τ) lies in a specific ring class extension of K depending
             on τ, and proposed a "Shimura reciprocity law" describing
             the permutation action of Galois on the set of u(α, τ),
             This article provides computational evidence for these
             conjectures. We present an efficient algorithm for computing
             u(α, τ), and implement this algorithm with the modular
             unit α(z) = Δ(z) 2 Δ(4z)3,Δ(2z)3. Using p = 3, 5, 7, and

             certain measure used to define w(α, τ) is shown to be
             Z-valued rather than only Zp ∩ Q-valued; this is an
             improvement over our previous result and allows for a
             precise definition of u(α, τ), instead of only up to a
             root of unity. © Canadian Mathematical Society

             Let N be a positive integer and let p be a prime not
             dividing N. Our essential idea is to replace the modular
             symbol attached to an elliptic curve E of conductor Np with
             the universal modular symbol for Γ0(Np). We then construct
             a certain torus T over Qp and lattice L ⊂ T, and prove
             that the quotient T/L is isogenous to the maximal toric
             quotient J0(Np)p-new of the Jacobian of X0(Np). This theorem
             generalizes a conjecture of Mazur, Tate, and Teitelbaum on

   Abstract = {Let A = {a 1 ,..., a k } and B = {b 1 ,..., b k } be two
             subsets of an Abelian group G, k ≤ |G|. Snevily
             conjectured that, when G is of odd order, there is a
             permutation π ≤ S k such that the sums a i + b π(i) , 1
             ≤ i ≤ k, are pairwise different. Alon showed that the
             conjecture is true for groups of prime order, even when A is
             a sequence of k < |G| elements, i.e., by allowing repeated
             elements in A. In this last sense the result does not hold
             for other Abelian groups. With a new kind of application of
             the polynomial method in various finite and infinite fields
             we extend Alon's result to the groups (Z p ) α and Z pα in
             the case k < p, and verify Snevily's conjecture for every
             cyclic group of odd order.},

   Abstract = {Arrow's celebrated impossibility theorem states that a
             sufficiently diverse domain of voter preference profiles
             cannot be mapped into social orders of the alternatives
             without violating at least one of three appealing
             conditions. Following Fishburn and Kelly, we define a set of
             strict preference profiles to be super Arrovian if Arrow's
             impossibility theorem holds for this set and each of its
             strict preference profile supersets. We write σ(m, n) for
             the size of the smallest super Arrovian set for m
             alternatives and n voters. We show that σ(m, 2) = [2m/m-2]
             and σ(3, 3) = 19. We also show that σ(m, n) is bounded by
             a constant for fixed n and bounded on both sides by a
             constant times 2n for fixed m. In particular, we find that
             limn→∞ σ(3, n)/2n = 3. Finally, we answer two questions
             posed by Fishburn and Kelly on the structure of minimum and
             minimal super Arrovian sets.},
