Capital Number Theory

Australian National University
8–9 April 2017

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.

There are many ways to get around Canberra. Below is some useful information about Bus & Taxi transport around the ANU, the Airport and surrounding areas.


If you are catching a taxi to the ANU Mathematical Sciences Institute, ask to be taken to Kingsley Street, Drill Hall Gallery. From here, it is only a short walk to the Mathematical Sciences Building (John Dedman, Building 27). A Taxi will generally cost around $40 and will take roughly 15 minutes. Pricing and time may vary depending on traffic.

Taxi bookings can be made through Canberra Elite Taxis - 13 22 27.
