Applications of complex analysis to counting arithmetic objects.

Applications of complex analysis to counting arithmetic objects.

Series: Mathematics Colloquium
Location: Math 501
Presenter: Ramin Takloo-Bighash, University of Illinois at Chicago

In this talk, intended for general mathematical audience, I will explain how complex analytic methods have been used to study the distribution of mathematical objects of number theoretic interest in the last couple of centuries, starting with Riemann's approach to proving the Prime Number Theorem. At the end I will sketch some recent progress.
