Number Theory Conference
April 14-15, 2018
The aim of this conference is to introduce undergraduate students to current areas of research and to generate excitement about number theory and mathematics more generally. The conference will include talks by leading researchers, talks by graduate students, panel discussions, and other activities.
The conference schedule is available here.
- Keith Conrad (U. Connecticut): Ranks of elliptic curves.
- Daniel Goldston (San Jose): Gaps and differences between primes.
