Title: Symplectic root numbers for GL(2)
Abstract of Talk
The aim of this talk is to discuss some questions about local root numbers attached to symplectic representations of GL(2,F), where F is a p-adic field, which form part of a joint work with Dipendra Prasad. However, we will mostly focus on the number theoretic background from which these questions naturally emerge. The talk is aimed at a general audience and no prior knowledge will be assumed.
