**Date & Time:** Tuesday, August 27, 2013, 15:30-17:30.

**Venue:** Ramanujan Hall

**Title:** Zeta Functions of Simple Algebras

**Speaker:** Ravi Raghunathan, IIT Bombay

**Abstract:** I will try and introduce zeta functions for division algebras. This talk will be logically independent of the previous talks on Tate's thesis, although familiarity with the latter can certainly not hurt.
