Date: 
Fri, 2018-09-14 10:00 - 18:00

Was Sie einen Mathematiker/eine Mathematikerin schon immer fragen wollten - tun Sie es am Tag der offenen Tür am Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik! Lernen Sie unser Institut kennen und erfahren Sie, aus welchen Ländern die Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen unseres Gästeprogramms kommen. Tauchen Sie bei einem virtuellen Rundgang in M. C. Eschers Bilder ein und versuchen Sie Ihr Glück bei einem Mathequiz. Lernen Sie, wie man Sudokus und den Zauberwürfel in null Komma nichts löst, und sehen Sie, was ein 3D-Drucker alles kann. Lassen Sie sich von einem Mathe-Magier verzaubern und finden Sie heraus, woran unsere preisgekrönten Mathe-Genies gerade arbeiten.

A proof of the prime number theorem IV

Efthymios Sofos
Affiliation: 
University of Leiden/MPIM
Date: 
Thu, 2018-09-20 11:15 - 12:15

The prime number theorem asserts that the $n$-th largest prime has approximate size $n \log n$.
We shall give the proof of Iwaniec in his recent AMS book on the Riemann zeta function.
These lectures are at the level of beginning graduate students.

Summing $\mu(n)$: a better elementary algorithm

Posted in
Speaker: 
Harald Helfgott
Affiliation: 
Universität Göttingen
Date: 
Fri, 2018-09-07 10:15 - 11:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

Joint with Lola Thompson.

Consider either of two related problems: determining the precise
number $\pi(x)$ of prime numbers $p\leq x$, and computing the Mertens
function $M(x) = \sum_{n\leq x} \mu(n)$, where $\mu$ is the Möbius function.

The two best algorithms known are the following:

Locally harmonic Maass forms and central $L$-values

Speaker: 
Larry Rolen
Affiliation: 
Trinity College Dublin
Date: 
Fri, 2018-09-07 09:25 - 10:10
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

In this talk, we will discuss a relatively new modular-type object known as
a locally harmonic Maass form.
We will discuss recent joint work with Ehlen, Guerzhoy, and Kane with
applications to the theory of $L$-functions. In particular, we find
finite formulas for certain twisted central $L$-values of a family of
elliptic curves in terms of finite sums over canonical binary quadratic
forms. Applications to the congruent number problem will be given.

On Maeda's Conjecture

Posted in
Speaker: 
Paloma Bengoechea
Affiliation: 
ETH Zürich
Date:

Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

In 1997 Maeda established a conjecture in his work with Hida
that has been popularized in the following form:
the characteristic polynomials of the Hecke operators  acting on the
space of cusp forms of fixed weight for SL(2,Z) are all irreducible and
have full Galois group. Beyond Maeda-Hida's work, this conjecture, if
true, would have different consequences; for example for the
non-vanishing of L-functions or the inverse Galois problem. We will
explain the significance of the conjecture and discuss some recent
progress.

C. Kaiser
Date:

The Oberseminar is a very long running seminar at MPI (‘Ober‘ standing for 'upper'). Its idea is that the guests of the MPI speak in this seminar (hopefully early in their stay) and get the chance to explain their work to the other guests.
