PIMS CRG Seminar Series: L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Chung-Hang (Kevin) Kwan

  • Date: 10/20/2022
Chung-Hang (Kevin) Kwan, University College London



Moments and Periods for GL(3) [video]


In the past century, the studies of moments of L-functions have been important in number theory and are well-motivated by a variety of arithmetic applications. This talk will begin with two problems in elementary number theory, followed by a survey of techniques in the past and the present. We will slowly move towards the perspectives of period integrals which will be used to illustrate the interesting structures behind moments. In particular,
we shall focus on the “Motohashi phenomena”.


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
