 Frobenius Distribution for Quotients of Fermat Curves of Prime Exponent Let $\mathcal{C}$ denote the Fermat curve over $\mathbb{Q}$ of prime exponent $\ell$. The Jacobian $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C})$ of~$\mathcal{C}$ splits over $\mathbb{Q}$ as the product of Jacobians $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, $1\leq k\leq \ell-2$, where $\mathcal{C}_k$ are curves obtained as quotients of $\mathcal{C}$ by certain subgroups of automorphisms of $\mathcal{C}$. It is well known that $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$ is the power of an absolutely simple abelian variety $B_k$ with complex multiplication. We call degenerate those pairs $(\ell,k)$ for which $B_k$ has degenerate CM type. For a non-degenerate pair $(\ell,k)$, we compute the Sato-Tate group of $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, prove the generalized Sato-Tate Conjecture for it, and give an explicit method to compute the moments and measures of the involved distributions. Regardless of $(\ell,k)$ being degenerate or not, we also obtain Frobenius equidistribution results for primes of certain residue degrees in the $\ell$-th cyclotomic field. Key to our results is a detailed study of the rank of certain generalized Demjanenko matrices. Keywords:Sato-Tate group, Fermat curve, Frobenius distributionCategories:11D41, 11M50, 11G10, 14G10

 Level Lowering Modulo Prime Powers and Twisted Fermat Equations We discuss a clean level lowering theorem modulo prime powers for weight $2$ cusp forms. Furthermore, we illustrate how this can be used to completely solve certain twisted Fermat equations $ax^n+by^n+cz^n=0$.

 The Ample Cone for a K3 Surface In this paper, we give several pictorial fractal representations of the ample or KÃ¤hler cone for surfaces in a certain class of $K3$ surfaces. The class includes surfaces described by smooth $(2,2,2)$ forms in ${\mathbb P^1\times\mathbb P^1\times \mathbb P^1}$ defined over a sufficiently large number field $K$ that have a line parallel to one of the axes and have Picard number four. We relate the Hausdorff dimension of this fractal to the asymptotic growth of orbits of curves under the action of the surface's group of automorphisms. We experimentally estimate the Hausdorff dimension of the fractal to be $1.296 \pm .010$.

 Ternary Diophantine Equations via Galois Representations and Modular Forms In this paper, we develop techniques for solving ternary Diophantine equations of the shape $Ax^n + By^n = Cz^2$, based upon the theory of Galois representations and modular forms. We subsequently utilize these methods to completely solve such equations for various choices of the parameters $A$, $B$ and $C$. We conclude with an application of our results to certain classical polynomial-exponential equations, such as those of Ramanujan--Nagell type. Categories:11D41, 11F11, 11G05
