## Student Number Theory Seminar3:35pm - Vincent Hall 1A Brief Introduction to L-Functions Joe Dickinson Like Andy's talk last week, this week will be another introductory talk; the topic is L-functions. We will start with a discussion of Dirichlet's use of L-series to show the infinitude of primes in arithmetic progressions, then proceed to how L-functions have become a major area of investigation. We will discuss only a sampling of topics, with the goal of motivating interest and setting the stage for future talks. |

## Student Number Theory Seminar3:35pm - Vincent Hall 1Leading up to Dirichlets class number formula Dev Hegde The talk will give a historical introduction to number theory leading up to Dirichlets class number formula which was one of the biggest achievements of analytic methods in number theory. No background is necessary to understand the talk. |

## Student Number Theory Seminar3:35pm - Vincent Hall 1A Tour of the p-adic Representation Theory of GL_2 Katy Weber We summarize the classification of representations of GL_2 over a p-adic field, emphasizing the relationship between these representations and automorphic forms and L-functions. Time permitting, we will also discuss Whittaker models of these representations and the Casselman-Shalika formula. This talk is meant to be a sketch of these results and how they fit into the bigger picture, and should be accessible even if you are not very familiar with representation theory. |

## Student Number Theory Seminar3:35pm - Vincent Hall 1Arithmetic Speculation on a Combinatorial Lemma Eric Stuckey Reflection groups are an object in classical geometry with deep connections to Lie theory, representation theory, algebraic geometry, invariant theory, and combinatorics. The first half of the talk will give a quick introduction to various flavors of reflection groups. In the second half of the talk I will state a lemma about a restricted class of reflection groups, and discuss an idea for how incorporating cyclotomic fields may allow us to remove that restriction. |
