Title:Quantum unique ergodicity for half-integral weight forms
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Maksym Radziwill, Rutgers Universsity
Abstract:
I will discuss joint work with Steve Lester, in which we establish conditionally on the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis, Quantum Unique Ergodicity for half-integral weight Hecke cusp forms belonging to Kohnen's subspace. The result can be viewed as the half-integral analogue of the recent unconditional theorems addressing the integer weight cases (due to Lindenstrauss and Holowinsky-Soundararajan). I will discuss the motivation for the question and the peculiarities of the half-integral setting. Moreover I will draw attention to an analogy between sieves and L-functions which is central to the proof.
