Mark Shusterman [HUJI-BGU Number Theory Seminar]

The meeting will be open from 16.15 (local time) *NOTE UNUSUAL TIME* for a virtual coffee with the speaker. 

Title: Short exponential sums and their applications over function fields


In joint work with Will Sawin, we obtain (square-root) cancellation in quite general incomplete exponential sums for the ring F_q[x] of polynomials over a finite field. This has applications to problems in analytic number theory such as the Chowla conjecture, Bateman-Horn conjecture, and the number of real quadratic function fields with a huge class group.
