Title: Solving polynomial equations in primes and in almost primes
Abstract: Given polynomial equations we might be interested in finding solutions in primes or in almost primes. For example, the twin prime conjecture is regarding finding infinitely many prime solutions to the equation $x_1 - x_2 = 2$. I will discuss some recent progress made on solving higher degree polynomial equations in primes and also in almost primes.

Speaker: Mike Roth
Title: Examples VIII
Abstract: We will study the case of cubic curves and cubic surfaces up to automorphism.
