A multi-Frey approach to Fermat equations of signature (11,11,n)


I will report on joint work with Billerey, Dieulefait, Freitas, and Najman in which we develop some of the necessary ingredients to use Frey abelian varieties in the modular method, inspired by ideas from Darmon's program for resolving generalized Fermat equations. In particular, I will explain how this machinery can be applied to study the equation x^11 + y^11 = z^n for first case solutions by using information from multiple Frey varieties.
