Title: The relative trace formula of Jacquet-Rallis and applications to the Gan-Gross-Prasad conjecture
Abstract: Jacquet and Rallis proposed an approach via relative trace formula to the global Gan-Gross-Prasad (GGP) conjectures for unitary groups. The conjecture relates periods of automorphic forms on unitary groups to central values of Rankin-Selberg L-functions. The simple trace formula has been developed thanks to the work of Yun, Zhang and Beuzart-Plessis giving important cases of the GGP conjecture as well as the refined GGP conjecture as proposed by Ichino-Ikeda. I will present my joint work with Pierre-Henri Chaudouard that develops a full relative trace formula of Jacquet-Rallis and I will discuss the progress towards proving new cases of the GGP conjecture.
