Undergraduate Colloquium, Wednesday April 23 / An Example Project

Shotaro Makisumi. I participated in this program in summer 2011. My advisor was Tasho Kaletha, a post doc with a joint appointment at Princeton and the Institute for Advanced Study. We put together a plan of study covering several topics, including the structure theory of reductive groups, Bruhat-Tits buildings, and Galois cohomology. I read textbooks and papers he recommended, met with him regularly to ask questions, and wrote an exposition on the structure theory of reductive groups.
