Graduate Student Number Theory Seminar

Primes in short intervals

Surya Teja Gavva, Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 425
Date & time: Monday, 25 September 2017 at 12:00PM - 1:20PM

  Abstract: We are interested in finding primes in short intervals [x, x+y], for y =x^{theta}, theta as small as possible. I will try to discuss some main techniques to prove such results and go over the result of Baker, Harman, Pintz for theta= 0.535. The best result today is for theta =0.525.
