Alexander Smith's homepage

Hi! I'm a second year math graduate student at Harvard. I'm primarily interested in number theory. I can be contacted at Y@X, where Y and X are such that this website is www.X/~Y/. My papers, with arXiv links:

  • Ball Packings with Periodic Constraints, with Robert Connelly and Jeffrey Shen, published in Discrete & Computational Geometry, 52.4 (2014).

  • Irreducible Canonical Representations in Positive Characteristic, with Benjamin Gunby and Allen Yuan, published in Research in Number Theory, 1.3 (2015).

  • The congruent numbers have positive density, in preparation.

  • Governing fields and statistics for 4-Selmer groups and 8-class groups, in preparation.

  • 2^\infty-Selmer groups, 2^\infty-class groups, and Goldfeld's conjecture, in preparation.
