Title: Graph laplacians and Drinfeld modular curves (note special start time)
Abstract: The relationship between combinatorial laplacians and automorphic forms is an active area of current research with applications to a variety of problems arising in number theory, group theory, and coding theory. I will discuss certain combinatorial laplacians arising in the theory of Drinfeld modular curves, and their applications to estimating congruences between automorphic forms.
