Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar

Splitting index of quadratic forms

Saurabh Gosavi - Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 525
Date & time: Wednesday, 11 April 2018 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract: Given a quadratic form over a field, we ask the question how close it is from being split? In other words, what is the smallest degree field extension one needs to make to make it a hyperbolic form? In this talk, we will give upper bounds for splitting indices for forms defined over function fields of curves.
