Speakers:   Daniel Li-Huerta (Harvard University)

Nekovář–Scholl observed that the ´etale cohomology groups of Hilbert modular varieties enjoy the action of a much larger profinite group than the absolute Galois group of : the plectic Galois group. They conjectured that this action extends to the level of complexes, which would give a construction of canonical classes in higher wedge powers of Selmer groups. I’ll explain how this works, as well as discuss analogues over local fields and global function fields.
