Automorphisms of nonsplit Cartan modular curves
Valerio Dose (Università di Roma Tor Vergata)
The interest in nonsplit Cartan modular curves comes mainly from their relation to Serre's uniformity conjecture,
an important statement about Galois representations attached to elliptic curves.
In this talk, we will present recent results on the automorphism group of nonsplit Cartan modular curves of prime level.  

The distribution of class groups of imaginary quadratic fields
Nathan Jones (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Which abelian groups occur as the class group of some imaginary quadratic field? Inspecting tables of M. Watkins on imaginary quadratic fields
of class number up to 100, one finds that some abelian groups do not occur as the class group of any imaginary quadratic field (for instance (Z/3Z)^{3} does not).
In this talk, I will combine heuristics of CohenLenstra together with a refinement of a conjecture of Soundararajan to make precise predictions about the
asymptotic distribution of imaginary quadratic class groups, partially addressing the above question. I will also present some numerical evidence of the
resulting conjectures. This is based on joint work with S. Holmin, P. Kurlberg, C. Mc.Leman, and K. Petersen.
 

Automata and number theory
Christian Mauduit (Université d'AixMarseille)
The aim of this talk is to give a survey on recent results concerning the combinatorial, arithmetical
and statistical properties of sequences of symbols and sequences of integers generated by finite automata.
We will illustrate our talk by showing some classical constructions, including the ThueMorse sequence,
the RudinShapiro sequence and the Cantor sequence.  

New Results on the Class Number One Problem for Function Fields
Pietro Mercuri (Università di Roma Tor Vergata)
In this talk we give a complete classification of function fields with class number one and positive genus
and we explain the role of pointless curves in this result. This is a joint work with Claudio Stirpe.
 

Forbidden integer ratios of consecutive power sums
Pieter Moree (MaxPlank Institute fur Mathematics)
Let S_{k} (m):=1^{k}+2^{k}+ . . . . +(m1)^{k}
denote a power sum. In 2011 Bernd
Kellner formulated
the conjecture that for k≥ 2 and m≥ 4> the ratio
r:=S_{k}(m+1)/S_{k}(m) of two consecutive power sums is never an
integer. In case r=2 this is equivalent with the ErdosMoser conjecture that
S_{k}(m)=m^{k} has no nontrivial solutions.
I will discuss criteria allowing one to exclude many integer values of r as
possible ratio (joint work with Ioulia Baoulina).

Digital properties of prime numbers
Joël Rivat (Université d'AixMarseille)
We will give an introduction and a survey of some recent
results on the distribution of the digits of prime numbers
obtained in collaboration with Christian Mauduit,
focusing in particular our attention on the ThueMorse and RudinShapiro
sequences along prime numbers.
