Title:  Harris–Venkatesh plus Stark

Abstract:  The class number formula describes the behavior of the Dedekind zeta function at = 0 and = 1. The Stark and Gross conjectures extend the class number formula, describing the behavior of Artin L-functions and p-adic L-functions at = 0 and = 1 in terms of units and class numbers. The Harris–Venkatesh conjecture describes the residue of Stark units modulo p, giving a modular analogue to the Stark and Gross conjectures while also serving as the first verifiable part of the broader Prasanna–Venkatesh conjectures. In this talk, I will draw a picture, formulate a unified conjecture combining Harris–Venkatesh and Stark for weight one modular forms, and describe the proof of this in the imaginary dihedral case.
