PIMS CRG Seminar Series: L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Shashank Chorge

Extreme values of the Riemann zeta and Dirichlet L-functions at critical points [video]


We compute extreme values of the Riemann Zeta function at the critical points of the zeta function in the critical strip. i.e. the points where \(\zeta'(s) = 0\) and \(\mathfrak{R}s < 1\). We show that the values taken by the zeta function at these points are very similar to the extreme values taken without any restrictions. We will show geometric significance of such points.

We also compute extreme values of Dirichlet L-functions at the critical points of the zeta function, to the right of \(\mathfrak{R}s=1\). It shows statistical independence of L-functions and zeta function in a certain way as these values are very similar to the values taken by L-functions without any restriction.


This event is part of the PIMS CRG Group on L-Functions in Analytic Number Theory. More details can be found on the webpage here: https://sites.google.com/view/crgl-functions/crg-weekly-seminar
