Artin L-functions, Artin's primitive roots conjecture and applications
Nesin Mathematics Village, Şirince, Turkey.
May 29th - June 9th 2017
We gratefully acknowledge the support of:
This school is intended to foster anlytic number theory as well as algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry in Turkey. The school revolves around Artin's primitive root conjectures and Artin's L-functions, two subjects that lie at the crossroads of these three fields. It will give the attendees the opportunity to learn some basics notions on the following topics: a brief introduction to algebraic number theory culminating in the celebrated Chebotarev Density Theorem; an introduction to the representation theory of finite groups culminating in the definition of Artin's L-functions and the group theoretic proof of their meromorphicity; an introduction to zeta functions and L-functions; distribution of primes; an introduction to elliptic curves and analogues of Artin's Conjecture, and last but not least Hooley's Theorem and quasi resolution. All courses will be taught in English.
