The p-adic Simpson correspondence
14:00 - 15:00
The p-adic Simpson correspondence, initiated by Gerd Faltings in 2005, aims at describing all p-adic representations of the fundamental group of a proper smooth variety over a p-adic field in terms of linear algebra - namely Higgs bundles. My lecture will be an introduction to this topic. I will focus on the approach that I developed with Michel Gros relying on a new family of period rings built from the torsor of deformations of the variety over a universal p-adic thickening defined by J.-M. Fontaine.

Generalized Kloosterman sheaves and their p-adic variants
15:30 - 16:30
I will first review the relationship between the classical Bessel equation and the classical Kloosterman sum. Such a relation can be regarded as an instance of the geometric Langlands correspondence for GL2. I will then explain the recent generalizations of this story for arbitrary reductive groups, based on the works by Frenkel-Gross, Heinloth-Ngo-Yun, and X. Zhu. In the end, I will discuss some joint work in progress with X. Zhu, where we study the p-adic aspect of this theory.
