On Newforms for Split Special Odd Orthogonal Groups
The theory of local newforms has been studied for the group of \(PGL_n\) and recently \(PGSp_4\) and some other groups of small ranks. In this dissertation, we develop a newform theory for generic supercuspidal representations ...
Rational Point Counts for del Pezzo Surfaces over Finite Fields and Coding Theory
The goal of this thesis is to apply an approach due to Elkies to study the distribution of rational point counts for certain families of curves and surfaces over finite fields. A vector space of polynomials over a fixed ...
Moduli of Galois Representations
The theme of this thesis is the study of moduli stacks of representations of an associative algebra, with an eye toward continuous representations of profinite groups such as Galois groups. The central object of study is ...
The Geometry of Hurwitz Space
We explore the geometry of certain special subvarieties of spaces of branched covers which we call the Maroni and Casnati-Ekedahl loci. Our goal is to understand the divisor theory on compactifications of Hurwitz space, ...
Pencils of quadrics and Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves
Using pencils of quadrics, we study a construction of torsors of Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves twice of which is Pic^1. We then use this construction to study the arithmetic invariant theory of the actions of SO2n+1 ...
Entropy, Dimension and Combinatorial Moduli for One-Dimensional Dynamical Systems
The goal of this thesis is to provide a unified framework in which to analyze the dynamics of two seemingly unrelated families of one-dimensional dynamical systems, namely the family of quadratic polynomials and continued ...
Open Gromov-Witten Invariants on Elliptic K3 Surfaces and Wall-Crossing
We defined a new type of open Gromov-Witten invariants on hyperK\"aher manifolds with holomorphic
Holomorphically parametrized L2 Cramer's rule and its algebraic geometric applications
Suppose $f,g_1,\cdots,g_p$ are holomorphic functions over $\Omega\subset\cxC^n$. Then there raises a natural question: when can we find holomorphic functions $h_1,\cdots,h_p$ such that $f=\sum g_jh_j$? The celebrated Skoda ...
The complex geometry of Teichmüller space
We study isometric maps between Teichmüller spaces and bounded symmetric domains in their Kobayashi metric. We prove that every totally geodesic isometry from a disk to Teichmüller space is either holomorphic or anti-holomorphic; ...
Symmetric Spaces and Knot Invariants from Gauge Theory
In this thesis, we set up a framework to define knot invariants for each choice of a symmetric space. In order to address this task, we start by defining appropriate notions of singular bundles and singular connections for ...
