Title:Quadratic forms, primes, and the circle method
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Lillian Pierce, University of Oxford
Abstract:
This talk will describe joint work with Roger Heath-Brown on a new application of the circle method to pairs of quadratic forms, via a novel two-dimensional analogue of Kloosterman's version of the circle method. As a result, we prove (under a mild geometric constraint) that any two quadratic forms with integer coefficients, in 5 variables or more, simultaneously attain prime values infinitely often.
