Talk Story with Pavel Guerzhoy

February 9, 2018 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

A Talk Story in Number Theory.

There is a childish misconception that the occupation of a professional mathematicians
is to operate with very big numbers. That is presumably primarily applicable to those who
do Number Theory. In this talk, I will show that this sometimes may be not too far from truth.

The talk is supposed to be entertaining and is directed to grad students willing to get a rough idea
about what it takes (and what it may give) to choose Number Theory as a research speciality.
