# Ma Luo (Rome) : Galois theory for multiple zeta values and multiple modular values

Periods are numbers that can be expressed as integrals of algebraic differential forms over domains defined by polynomial inequalities with rational coefficients. They form a subring of complex numbers, which contains multiple zeta values and multiple modular values. Although some periods are transcendental, one can work out a Galois theory for them using their defining algebraic data, which is how the classical Galois theory for algebraic numbers were developed. I will discuss Francis Brown's results on multiple zeta values and more recent work on multiple modular values.
