Topic: 

The sixth moment of the Riemann zeta function and ternary additive divisor sums

Description: 

Hardy and Littlewood initiated the study of the 2k-th moments of the Riemann zeta function on the critical line. In 1918 Hardy and Littlewood established an asymptotic formula for the second moment and in 1926 Ingham established an asymptotic formula for the fourth moment. In this talk we consider the sixth moment of the zeta function on the critical line. We show that a conjectural formula for a certain family of ternary additive divisor sums implies an asymptotic formula for the sixth moment. This builds on earlier work of Ivic and of Conrey-Gonek.
