| MAT 402 Seminar in Mathematics: Three Topics in Number Theory |
MAT 402 Seminar in Mathematics
The three topics of this seminar are the following:
The first two topics are the jewels of of the XIXth century mathematics, while the third topic is an area of active current research. We will follow the presentation in book by J.-P. Serre "A Course in Arithmetic", which is a modern classic. Another classic we will be using is I.M. Vinogradov's "Elements of Number Theory". For more infomation about the boosk and other course materials, please select Links link in the menu to the left.
I will start by giving a few introductory lectures on each topic, but after a week or two will assign sections to students to present in class. Grades will be based on these oral presentations and on written assignments.
