Abstract:
In this talk, I will address the following problem. Suppose D and D' are central division algebras over a field K. What can be said about D and D' if they have the same maximal subfields? I will discuss various motivations for this question and recent results. I will also mention some generalizations to arbitrary absolutely almost simple algebraic groups. This is joint work with V. Chernousov and A. Rapinchuk.
