William Stein, SageMath, Inc and University of Washington
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Professor Stein’s favorite research problem in number theory is the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, and he just coauthored a book with Barry Mazur explaining the Riemann hypothesis. In this talk, he will show an explicit computation related to each of these famous and exciting conjectures; these computations will give a sense as to why people might actually believe these very deep and extremely surprising conjectures.
