Avner Ash

Prof. Ash gave a talk in London England at the London  Number Theory Seminar on May 7, 2014 on Reducible Galois representations and homology of GL(n,Z).

Prof. Ash also gave three talks in Greensboro North Carolina in the UNCG Summer School in Computational Number Theory 2014 on May 20, 21, and 22 on the following topics:

(a) Galois representations, group homology, and reciprocity
(b) How to compute Hecke operators for GL(n)/Q
(c) The case of reducible Galois representations

Finally, Prof. Ash spoke in Boston on June 2, 2014 in the Conference on p-adic Variation in Number Theory in honor of Glenn Stevens' 60th Birthday, on Explicit computations of p-adic variation of homology.
