Graduate Student Number Theory Seminar

Closed Geodesics and Binary Quadratic Forms.

Andre Hernandez-Espiet

Location:  This seminar talks on Wednesday, 9:20-10:20 via Google hangouts using Link below
Date & time: Wednesday, 08 April 2020 at 9:20AM - 10:20AM

Abstract: An interesting question in number theory is: What integers can be represented by integral binary quadratic forms? It turns out that this question is intimately related with closed geodesics on ?\G, where ?=PSL2(Z) and G=PSL2(R). We will discuss this connection, and see how continued fractions are key in order to relate these concepts.
