K_3(Q) and modular forms
Speaker: Professor Werner Nahm (DIAS)

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room
A conjectural relation between modular forms and torsion elements of K_3(\bar Q) has been tested by D. Zagier and appears to hold true. The relationship of the conjecture to the representation theory of Yangians will be explained.
