"The Distribution of Class Groups of Number Fields"
Class group is a central object of the study in number theory. We will give an overview on new developments in the distribution of class groups with a fixed Galois group. In particular, we will explain the use of symmetry which has been overlooked for decades, but turns out to be an essential tool to obtain many new results on the distribution of class groups.
A post-colloquium meet and greet will be held at 2:00 pm using the same Zoom meeting link.
