Title: Essential dimension and profinite group schemes
Abstract: The essential dimension of an algebraic group is a measure of the complexity of its functor of torsors, i.e. $H^1(,G)$. Classically, essential dimension has only been studied for group schemes of finite type. We study the case of profinite group schemes, and prove two very general criteria that show that essential dimension is almost always infinite for profinite group schemes: It does not provide much information about them. We thus propose a new, natural refinement of essential dimension, the fce dimension. The fce dimension coincides with essential dimension for group schemes of finite type but has a better behaviour otherwise. Over any field, we compute the fce dimension of the Tate module of a torus. Over fields finitely generated over $\mathbb{Q}$, we compute the fce dimension of $\mathbb{Z}_p$ and of the Tate module of an abelian variety.

Title: On the cohomology of smooth projective surfaces with $p_g = q = 2$ and maximal Albanese dimension
Abstract: In this talk I will report on a joint project with Matteo Penegini (Genova). The second cohomology of a surface S as mentioned in the title splits up as a sum of two pieces. One piece comes from the Albanese variety. The other piece looks like the cohomology of a K3 surface, which we call a K3 partner X of S. If the surface S is a productquotient, then we can geometrically construct the K3 partner X and an algebraic correspondence that relates the cohomology of S and X. Finally, we prove the Tate and MumfordTate conjectures for all surfaces S that lie in the same connected component of the Gieseker moduli space as a productquotient surface.

Title: Hecke Characters and the LFunction Ratios Conjecture
Abstract: A Gaussian prime is a prime element in the ring of Gaussian integers $\mathbb{Z}[i]$. As the Gaussian integers lie on the plane, interesting questions about their geometric properties can be asked which have no classical analogue among the ordinary primes. Hecke proved that the Gaussian primes are equidistributed across sectors of the complex plane by making use of Hecke characters and their associated Lfunctions. In this talk I will present several applications obtained upon applying the Lfunctions Ratios Conjecture to this family of Lfunctions. In particular, I will present a refined conjecture for the variance of Gaussian primes across sectors, and a conjecture for the one level density across this family.

Title: Singular units do not exist
Abstract: It is classically known that a singular modulus (a jinvariant of a CM elliptic curve) is an algebraic integer. Habegger (2015) proved that at most finitely many singular moduli are units, answering a question of Masser (2011). However, his argument, being noneffective, did not imply any bound for the size of these "singular units". I will report on a recent work with Philipp Habegger and Lars Kühne, where we prove that singular units do not exist at all. First, we bound the discriminant of any singular unit by $10^{15}$. Next, we rule out the remaining singular units using computerassisted arguments.
