Presenter: Brandon Levin, U of A

I will discuss recent results towards the weight part of Serre's conjecture for GL_n as formulated by Herzig.  The conjecture predicts the set of weights where an odd n-dimensional mod p Galois representation will appear in cohomology in terms of the restriction of the representation to the decomposition group at p. This is joint work with Bao V. Le Hung, Daniel Le, and Stefano Morra.
