**Yuval Zvi Flicker** (Hebrew: יוּבַל צְבִי פְלִיקֶר; born 1955 in Israel) is an American mathematician. His primary research interests include automorphic representations.^{[1]}

He received his PhD degree from the University of Cambridge in 1978. His thesis advisor was Alan Baker, in the area of transcendental number theory.^{[1]}^{[2]}

He taught at Princeton University, Columbia University, Harvard University and Ohio State University, where he is now a Professor. He also worked with David Kazhdan^{[3]} and Pierre Deligne.^{[1]}^{[4]}

## Education

Born 1955 in Kfar-Saba, raised in Ramat-Gan, Flicker studied Mathematics and Philosophy at Tel-Aviv University gaining a BA in 1973, then he studied Mathematics at the Hebrew University gaining an MA in 1974. After that he studied Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at DPMMS, Cambridge University in 1974-75, where he was awarded his PhD under the supervision of Fields Medalist Alan Baker in 1978. His dissertation was "Linear forms on Abelian Varieties over Local Fields". He was a Post Doctoral scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study Princeton 1978-79, at Columbia University 1979-81, at Princeton University 1981-85, and at Harvard University 1985-87. He worked as a Professor of Mathematics at the Ohio State University from 1987 to 2015.

## Research

Flicker's research interests include Automorphic and Admissible Representations, Automorphic forms over function fields, Arithmetic Geometry, Lifting of Representations, Hecke-Iwahori algebras, p-adic automorphic forms, Galois Cohomology, Local-Global Principles, Motives, Algebraic Groups, Covering Groups, Shimura Varieties. He coauthored works with David Kazhdan,^{[3]} Pierre Deligne,^{[4]} his students^{[5]} and other scholars.^{[6]} He acknowledges influence of Joseph Bernstein^{[7]} and of Vladimir Drinfeld.^{[8]} He is the author of several books.

## Dissemination
