DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Lillian Pierce\nhosted by Tim Browning\nAbstract: Many
questions in number theory can be phrased as counting problems. How many
primes are there? How many elliptic curves are there? How many integral so
lutions to this system of equations are there? How many number fields are
there? If the answer is “infinitely many\,” we want to understand the
order of growth for the “family" of objects we are counting. But in many
settings we are also interested in finer-grained questions that zoom in t
o focus on just one part of the family. For example: how many number field
s are there\, with fixed degree and fixed discriminant? We know the answer
is “finitely many\,” but it would have important consequences if we c
ould show the answer is always “very few indeed.” In this talk\, we wi
ll describe several “counting problems” that remain mysterious\, and e
xplore how one way to prove finer-grained properties is by understanding t
he behavior of infinite families of mathematical objects.
