If you wish to drive your own car and park, the closest parking deck is attached
to the Oxford Rd Building. There will be a charge for parking, which is $6 for
2-3 hours. Once you have parked, exit the parking garage into the building and
there will be an elevator to your right. Take the elevator to level 3. You
should take a left out of the elevator and proceed through the glass doors into
the courtyard area. The Mathematics and Science Center will be the building to
your left.

Oscillatory integrals arising as Fourier transforms of local and global height functions play an important role in the spectral analysis of height zeta functions. I will explain a general geometric technique which allows to evaluate such integrals. This is joint work with A. Chambert-Loir.
