"Small gaps between primes and primes in arithmetic progressions"

A major ingredient of the proof is a stronger version of the Bombieri-Vinogradov theorem which asserts that the primes are well distributed in arithmetic progressions to large moduli. This result is of independent interest and it relies on the Riemann Hypothesis for varieties over finite fields.

“Introduction to schemes, part 2”

The theory of sheaves that was presented in the first talk will be used to introduce ringed spaces, locally ringed spaces and their morphisms. The structure sheaf on Spec R will be revisited to reveal some of its properties that will motivate the definition of schemes. The last part of the talk will cover some examples and properties of schemes.
