L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Andrew Yang

A zero-free region of the Riemann zeta-function is a subset of the complex plane where the zeta-function is known to not vanish. In this talk we will discuss various computational and analytic techniques used to enlarge the zero-free region for the...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Greg Knapp

In 1909, Thue proved that when $F(x,y)$ is an irreducible, homogeneous, polynomial with integer coefficients and degree at least 3, the inequality $\left\| F(x,y) \right\| \leq h$ has finitely many integer-pair solutions for any positive $h$. Because...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Jérémy Dousselin

Fix $N\geq 1$ and let $L_1, L_2, \ldots, L_N$ be Dirichlet L-functions with distinct, primitive and even Dirichlet characters. We assume that these functions satisfy the same functional equation. Let $F(s)∶= c_1L_1(s)+c_2L_2(s)+\ldots+c_NL_N(s)$ be a...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Quanli Shen

I will discuss the fourth moment of quadratic Dirichlet L-functions where we prove an asymptotic formula with four main terms unconditionally. Previously, the asymptotic formula was established with the leading main term under generalized Riemann...

CANCELLED: L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Sneha Chaubey

The topic on the distribution of sequences saw its light with the seminal paper of Weyl. While the classical notion of equidistribution modulo one addresses the “global” behaviour of the fractional parts of a sequence, quantities such as k-point...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Julia Stadlmann

The twin prime conjecture asserts that there are infinitely many primes p for which p+2 is also prime. This conjecture appears far out of reach of current mathematical techniques. However, in 2013 Zhang achieved a breakthrough, showing that there...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Vivian Kuperberg

In 2000, Shiu proved that there are infinitely many primes whose last digit is 1 such that the next prime also ends in a 1. However, it is an open problem to show that there are infinitely many primes ending in 1 such that the next prime ends in 3...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Emily Quesada-Herrera

We will explore how a Fourier optimization framework may be used to study two classical problems in number theory involving Dirichlet characters: The problem of estimating the least character non-residue; and the problem of estimating the least prime...

L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Winston Heap

We discuss the role of long Dirichlet polynomials in number theory. We first survey some applications of mean values of long Dirichlet polynomials over primes in the theory of the Riemann zeta function which includes central limit theorems and pair...
