Title:A Problem on Sums of Two Squares
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Enrico Bombieri
Abstract:
Even apparently simple questions about integers that are representable as a sum of two squares take a life of their own when examined in detail. This lecture shows how combinatorics, algebraic and arithmetic geometry, elliptic curves and their L-functions can all play a role in a problem on sum of two squares arising from a model in mathematical physics. (Joint work with Jean Bourgain)
