This is the home page for the North of England Algebraic Number Theory Group. This group is based at Durham, Nottingham, Sheffield and Manchester, and we are grateful to the London Mathematical Society for financially supporting the group by means of a Scheme 3 grant. This grant has been renewed for 2006-07, and pays for travel expenses for NoMaDS members, as well as other visitors (if sufficient funds are available).
Although our official title is the one given above, we informally refer to ourselves as NoMaDS (an abbreviation of Nottingham, Manchester, Durham and Sheffield, the host cities), as suggested by John Cremona.
The nineteenth meeting takes place on Thursday March 8th in Sheffield. Here is the programme:
The canonical fractional Galois ideal at s=0
Dimensions of spaces of higher order cusp forms
Drinfeld modular curves and the arithmetic of elliptic curves defined over function fields
The talks will take place in J11 and I15 (coffee), Hicks Building, Sheffield.
Maps and other travel information for visitors.
Directions to the Hicks Building.
E-mail me if you will arrive early and would be interested in lunch. It is likely that some people will go out to dinner after the talks.
