Event description:

Shimura varieties are moduli spaces of abelian varieties with extra structures. Over the decades, various mathematicians (e.g. Rapoport, Kottwitz, etc.) have constructed integral models of Shimura varieties. In this talk, I will discuss some motivic aspects of integral models of Hodge type constructed by Kisin (resp. Kisin-Pappas). I will talk about recent work on removing the normalization step in the construction of such integral models, which gives closed embeddings of Hodge type integral models into Siegel integral models. I will also mention an application to toroidal compactifications of such integral models.
