    An Introduction to Analytic Number Theory via the Riemann Zeta Function
    Caleb MacDonald
    UL Lafayette
    Abstract: Analytic Number Theory seeks to use the techniques and results of Complex and Real Analysis to answer Number Theoritic questions. The early development of this area of study was driven by Gauss and Riemann. We will derive some results about the Riemann Zeta function and discuss the first big theorem of Analytic Number Theory, the Prime Number Theorem, as well as the field's most famous conjecture: the Riemann Hypothesis (both of to which the Riemann Zeta Function is critical). Time allowing other applications of the Riemann Zeta Function will be discussed.

    Oral Exam and Research Discussion/Q&A
    Abstract: In this seminar, some of the older graduate students will give their experiences and studying advice for preparing for the oral exams. They will also give their experiences in regards to research they have done so far.
