A multiplicative function f: N → C is a function satisfying f(mn)=f(m)f(n). Many naturally occuring functions in number theory are multiplicative. Over the last several years, Andrew Granville and I have been studying various features of multiplicative functions. I will discuss some aspects of this work. For example, I will answer the question of how many numbers up to a given number x are quadratic residues (you are free to choose the prime p so as to minimize the answer). As another example, I will discuss character sums and a recent improvement of a classical inequality of Pólya and Vinogradov.
