Abstract: In this talk, I will first explain the motivation to study the slopes of modular forms. Then I will explain a conjecture raised by Bergdall and Pollack which gives an effective algorithm to compute the slopes of modular forms and give some important consequences of this conjecture. I will talk about some strategies to prove this conjecture if time permits. This is a joint work in progress with Ruochuan Liu, Nha Truong and Liang Xiao.
