Title: Unitary CM fields and the Colmez conjecture

Abstract: In 1993, Pierre Colmez conjectured a relation between the Faltings height of a CM abelian variety and certain log derivatives of L-functions associated to the CM type, generalizing the classical Chowla-Selberg formula. I will discuss how we can extend the known cases of the conjecture to a certain class of unitary CM fields using the recently proven average version of the conjecture.
