Alia Hamieh Non-Vanishing of Central Values of Rankin-Selberg $L$-Functions
In this talk, we discuss some results on the non-vanishing of the central values of Rankin-Selberg convolutions of families of Hilbert modular forms. Such results are obtained by establishing some asymptotics of certain twisted first and second moments. This is an on-going joint work with Naomi Tanabe.
