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. |
