Sinan Ünver from the Department of Mathematics at Koç University is rewarded to the Masatoshi Gündüz İkeda Research Award, held since 2002.
The ceremony will be on February 28, 2013 at 15:30 at Gündüz İkeda Seminar Room at the Department of Mathematics at METU. He will also talk on "Motives and cyclotomic p-adic multi-zeta values". See the abstract below.
The purpose of the award is to evaluate the eminent research mathematical studies of scientists in Turkish Republic in order to announce these studies by approving them as being superior qualities and to encourage such kind of studies.
Title: Motives and cyclotomic p-adic multi-zeta values
Abstract: One of Grothendieck's most fundamental ideas in terms of the applications of algebraic geometry to arithmetic is the theory of motives. In the first part of the talk, I will describe the main properties of this category without going into too much technical detail. In the second part of the talk, I will talk about some results on cyclotomic p-adic multi-zeta values, which are p-adic realizations of some mixed Tate motives.
