Some congruences and consequences in number theory and beyond

HARVARD-MIT-BU-BRANDEIS-NORTHEASTERN

November 14, 2019      4:00 pm
Speaker: Ellen Eischen - U Oregon

In the mid-1800s, Kummer observed some striking congruences between certain values of the Riemann zeta function, which have important consequences in algebraic number theory, in particular for unique factorization in...
