Hida Theory Seminar

This semester Dave Hansen and I are organizing a seminar on Hida Theory.
Time and place: Thursdays 1:00-2:15 in Mathematics 622.
Here are notes, taken by Pak-Hin Lee.


Lecture 1 was based off Chapter 2 of Christopher Skinner's CMI notes, "Galois Representations, Iwasawa Theory, and Special Values of L-functions."
Lecture 2 contains material that can be found, for instance, in Lang's "Cyclotomic Fields I and II." See Chapter 5.
