Hodge-Tate Study Group

The aim of this study group is to give an introduction to the theory of p-adic Galois representations, that is, representations of the absolute Galois group of \mathbb{Q}_p with p-adic coefficients. We will see how they arise from the (global) Galois representations attached to elliptic curves, and study the categories of Hodge-Tate, de Rham and crystalline Galois representations and the relationships between them.

The main reference is "An introduction to the theory of p-adic representations" by Laurent Berger.

We will follow also "CMI Summer School Notes on p-Adic Hodge Theory" by Olivier Brinon and Brian Conrad.

Finally, it could be useful also refer to Abhinandan's master thesis "p-adic Galois representations and Elliptic Curves".

We would like to present the theory throughout the following schedule.
