Capital Number Theory


8–9 April 2016


John Dedman Buildling #27, Room G035 The Australian National University, Canberra


 Timothy Trudgian

This conference, with an emphasis on talks by students and early-career researchers, aims at being the annual autumn meeting for the Australian number theory community. We will bring together Australian number theorists and two international experts: Roger Heath-Brown and Olivier Ramaré.

The conference theme is the intersection of number theory with computation, broadly interpreted. Often a problem can be attacked in (at least) two different ways using different methods: for example, analytic methods for “large” cases and sophisticated computation for “small” cases. This enables a wide class of mathematicians to contribute to the problem. Our hope is that this conference will encourage collaboration between people with different interests.
