Number Theory Seminar
Speaker: Saad Qadri, IIT Bombay.
Time and Date: 11:00 am, Thursday, July 04.
Venue: Room 105.
Title: The prime number theorem.
Abstract: Our goal is to give an outline of the proof of the prime number
theorem. Let π(x) be the prime-counting function that gives the
number of primes less than or equal to x. The prime number theorem then
states that π(x) is asymptotically equal to x/log x. The proof
involves application of the methods of complex analysis to the study of
the real valued function π(x).
