Some properties of the Galois closure of an optimal tower

Speaker: Dr. Alexei Zaytsev (UCD)

Time: 4:00PM
Date: Wed 3rd March 2010

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room

In this talk we will discuss a tower of function fields which attains the Drinfeld Vladutc bound and construct its Galois closure. We find the number of rational points and genus for each step of the new tower.
