Non-archimedean distributions attached to twisted tensor L-functions
Baskar Balasubramanyam, Department of Mathematics, UCLA

Given a quadratic extension E/F, the twisted tensor (or Asai) transfer is a Langlands transfer from automorphic representations for GL_2/E to automorphic representations for GL_4/F. I will discuss special values results for twists (by characters of F) of the Asai L-function when F is totally real and E is a CM extension. I will also discuss the construction of a distribution that interpolates these twisted L-values.
