Mathematics Colloquium:  Fan Ge (University of Waterloo)

Title: Zeros and Critical Points of the Riemann Zeta-function

Abstract: The Riemann Hypothesis is an important unsolved problem in mathematics. It asserts that all the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta-function have real part 1/2. The critical points of the Riemann zeta-function are also interesting, because they are intimately connected to the zeta zeros. In this talk, we will give an introduction to the Riemann zeta-function, discuss the distribution of the zeros and critical points, and show how they are related to some central problems in analytic number theory.
