The goal of this semester-long program is to gather the leading experts in the area of Euler systems and the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture in order to initiate a more systematic study of Euler systems on higher rank reductive groups and their applications to generalizations of the BSD conjecture (Bloch–Kato–Beilinson conjectures). At the same time, we envision several introductory courses suitable for graduate students and post-doctoral assistants.
