THURSDAY Apr. 25 : TWENTY-FIFTH ISIDORE & HILDA DRESSLER LECTURE
Title: Sieves In Number Theory
Roger Baker
Brigham Young University

Abstract: The speaker describes how sieve methods impact number theory, with particular reference to two of his favorite problems : the problem of finding primes in short intervals [x,x+y] where y is a relatively small power of x, and the problem of finding primes in a Piatetski-Shapiro sequence (where the nth term is the integer part of a fixed non-integer power of n). The talk will be accessible to graduate students who are not necessarily specializing in number theory.

Time and Place: 2:30 PM CW 102
