Hardy-Littlewood and Chowla Type Conjectures in the Presence of a Siegel Zero
10:00am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: We discuss some consequences of the existence of a Siegel zero for various questions relating to the distribution of the prime numbers, and in particular to conjectures of Hardy-Littlewood and Chowla type.  This is joint work with Joni...

On Random Polynomials and Counting Number Fields: Fourier Analysis Meets Arithmetic Statistics
Theresa Anderson
2:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: Behaviors of objects of algebraic interest, such as polynomials, elliptic curves and number fields -- many of which are still unknown -- fall into the field of arithmetic statistics..  By bringing in Fourier analysis to interplay with a...

Arbitrarily Slow Decay in the Mobius Disjointness Conjecture
10:00am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: We construct examples showing that the correlation in the Mobius disjointness conjecture can go to zero arbitrarily slowly. In fact, our methods yield a more general result, where in lieu of μ(n) one can put any bounded sequence such that...

On a Conjecture of Veech About Möbius Orthogonality
Thierry de la Rue
11:15am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: In unpublished lecture notes, William A. Veech considered the following potential property of the Möbius function:
"In any Furstenberg system of the Möbius function, the zero-coordinate is orthogonal to any function measurable with...

Gowers Uniformity of Arithmetic Functions in Short Intervals
2:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: I will present results establishing cancellation in short sums of arithmetic functions (in particular the von Mangoldt and divisor functions) twisted by polynomial exponential phases, or more general nilsequence phases. These results imply...

Thermodynamic Formalism for B-free Dynamical Systems
Joana Kulaga-Przymus
10:00am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: Given $B \subset N$, we consider the corresponding set $FB$ of $B$-free integers, i.e. $n \in FB i_ no b \in B$ divides $n$. We $de_{ne} X \eta_}$ the B-free subshift _ as the smallest subshift containing $\eta := 1FB \in {0, 1}Z$. Such...

Projection Theorems and Applications
11:15am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: Given a fractal set E in $R^n$ and a set F in $Gr(k,n)$, can we find k-plane S in F such that the orthogonal projection of E onto S is large? 

We will survey some classical and recent projection theorems and discuss their applications. ...

Distribution of Orbits at Prime and Semi-prime Times
Adam Kanigowski
2:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Abstract: For a topological dynamical systems (T, X) and a fixed $x \in X$ we are interested in the distribution of prime and semi-prime orbits, i.e. ${T px}p='$ and ${T p1p2 x}p1,p2='$. We are interested in systems for which the related sequences...
