Wednesday, July 12, 11:00 a.m. Jeffery 422 - Number Theory Seminar

Speaker: Shuntaro Yamagishi

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.


Thursday, July 13, 1:30 p.m. Jeffery 422 - Curves Seminar

Speaker: Mike Roth

Title: Examples VIII

Abstract: We will study the case of cubic curves and cubic surfaces up to automorphism.
