Primes, Polynomials and Random Matrices
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Bob Hough.
The Prime Number Theorem tells us roughly how many primes lie in a given long interval. We have much less knowledge of how many primes lie in short intervals, and this is the subject of a conjecture due to Goldston and Montgomery. Likewise, we also have much less knowledge of how many primes lie in different arithmetic progressions. This is the subject of a conjecture due to Hooley. I will discuss the analogues of these conjectures for polynomials defined over function fields and outline how they can be proved using the theory of random matrices.
