Title:Primes in arithmetic progressions to sparse moduli II
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Roger Baker, Brigham Young University
Abstract:
One of the most important tools of analytic number theory is the Bombieri-Vinogradov theorem which predicts the number of primes up to x in an arithmetic progression of modulus q, for q up to x^c, c<1/2, apart from a relatively small set of exceptions q. But the theorem says nothing about the exceptions q that are, say, squares. We see what can be done about this, in two connected talks.
