Mathematics Colloquium: The Distribution of Integral Points on Homogeneous Varieties
4:10pm Webster 11
Dr. Sheng-Chi Liu
In this talk we will give a broad overview of the Linnik problems concerning the equidistribution of integral points on homogeneous varieties. One particular example concerns the Heegner points, which are roots in the complex upper-half plane of certain quadratic forms. We will discuss certain sparse equidistribution problems concerning these points and give an application of an analog of the Linnik famous theorem on the first prime in an arithmetic progression.
