Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to subconvexity bounds for L-functions. In recent years, there has been substantial progress towards the subconvexity problem for GL(2) L-functions, beginning with the work of Duke, Friedlander, and Iwaniec; more recently, ideas from representation theory and dynamics have been brought to bear on the problem. Subconvexity bounds for L-functions in higher rank (and, more generally, bounds for periods) remain largely elusive. The aim of the workshop is to consolidate the existing approaches and initiate analysis of the higher rank subconvexity problem.
