p-adic L-functions, with a view toward unitary groups”

One approach to studying the p-adic behavior of L-functions relies on understanding p-adic
properties of certain modular (or automorphic) forms, such as congruences satisfied by their
Fourier coefficients.

In this talk, I will give an overview of p-adic L-functions and an approach to constructing
them, which relies on relating them to certain p-adic families of Eisenstein series. I will start
with the earliest examples of p-adic L-functions (due to Serre, Kubota, and Leopoldt) and
conclude with a recently completed construction of myself, Harris, Li, and Skinner.
