**Title:** Circle method and Subconvexity estimates for *L*-functions

**Speaker:** Suryateja Gavva, IIT Bombay

**Abstract:** I will start by giving an introduction to the subconvexity estimates for different families of *L*-functions and then discuss some key ideas in proving such estimates. In particular, I will try to give the details of hybrid-subconvexity estimate proved by Prof. Ritabrata Munshi and some minor variations in my work with him.
