Title:The Montgomery-Hooley Theorem and its generalizations
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Robert Vaughan, Penn State University
Abstract:
This theorem is often called the Barban-Davenport-Halberstam theorem but they only proved weak versions. It gives the asympotics for the mean square of the error term in the prime number theorem for arithmetic progressions. I will give an overview of this theorem and related theorems and generalizations. There are still some interesting open questions.
