  1. Motivic action for Siegel modular forms [arXiv]
    joint with Kartik Prasanna
    submitted (2023)
  2. Inspired by the work of Prasanna-Venkatesh on singular cohomology of locally symmetric spaces, we propose a conjecture that explains all the contributions of Siegel modular forms of low weight to coherent cohomology in terms of the action of a motivic cohomology group. Under some technical conditions, we prove that our conjecture is equivalent to Beilinson's conjecture for the adjoint L-function of f. We also consider two special cases: for lifts of Hilbert modular forms, we prove an unconditional result towards the conjecture, and for lifts of Bianchi modular forms, we show that our conjecture is compatible with the conjecture of Prasanna-Venkatesh. The latter establishes a connection between the motivic action conjectures for locally symmetric spaces of non-hermitian type and those for coherent cohomology of Shimura varieties.


    Here are slides from a talk I gave at Bonn, which briefly summarizes the motivic action conjectures (slide 8 gives a 1-page summary of this paper).

    More details are in these notes from a series of two talks I gave at Imperial College London.

  3. A database of basic numerical invariants of Hilbert modular surfaces [arXiv]
    joint with Eran Assaf, Angelica Babei, Ben Breen, Edgar Costa, Juanita Duque-Rosero, Jean Kieffer, Avinash Kulkarni, Grant Molnar, Sam Schiavone, and John Voight
    accepted to AMS Contemporary Mathematics (LMFDB, Computation, and Number Theory ) (2023)
  4. We describe algorithms for computing geometric invariants for Hilbert modular surfaces, and we report on their implementation.

  5. Motivic action on coherent cohomology of Hilbert modular varieties [Journal] [arXiv]
    IMRN, Volume 2023, Issue 12, June 2023, Pages 10439-10531 (2023)
  6. We propose an action of a certain motivic cohomology group on the coherent cohomology of Hilbert modular varieties, extending conjectures of Venkatesh, Prasanna, and Harris. The action is described in two ways: on cohomology modulo p and over C, and we conjecture that they both lift to an action on cohomology with integral coefficients. The conjecture is supported by theoretical evidence based on Stark's conjecture on special values of Artin L-functions, and by numerical evidence in base change cases.


    Here is a video of a talk I gave at the Princeton/IAS Number Theory Seminar.

    Here is a poster about (an older version of) this paper. The explication of the main conjecture is slightly different in the newest version: see Page 6 of these slides.
