On growth of systole along congruence coverings of Hilbert modular varieties

Plinio G P Murillo

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 2753–2762
Abstract

We study how the systole of principal congruence coverings of a Hilbert modular variety grows when the degree of the covering goes to infinity. We prove that, given a Hilbert modular variety Mk of real dimension 2n defined over a number field k, the sequence of principal congruence coverings MI eventually satisfies

sys1(MI) 4 3nlog(vol(MI)) c,

where c is a constant independent of MI.
