TITLE: Primes and Polynomials in Short Intervals
TIME : Wednesday 21st February at 15.00 p.m.
LOCATION : Room N1.25 North Science (O'Brien Centre), UCD
COFFEE MEETING : Common Room at 14.15 p.m.
ABSTRACT : I will discuss a classical problem in Number Theory concerning the distribution of primes in short intervals and explain how an analogue of this problem involving polynomials can be solved by evaluating certain matrix integrals. I will also explain a generalisation to other arithmetic questions with a similar flavour.
