Lucile Devin, University of Ottawa   "Generalizations of Chebyshev's bias"   Following ideas of Rubinstein, Sarnak and Fiorilli, we give a general framework for the study of prime number races and Chebyshev's bias attached to general $L$-functions $L(s) = \sum_{n\geq 1}\lambda_{f}(n)n^{-s}$ satisfying natural analytic hypotheses. We put the emphasis on weakening the required hypotheses such as GRH or linear independence properties of zeros of $L$-functions.

"An introduction to finite basis problems"

To get us started this term, I will describe some known instances of the finite basis problem in universal algebra, and one unknown instance that is currently bugging me: “Murskii + L'vov.”  This will be an elementary lecture, intended as a warm-up for Justin’s lectures later this month.
