“NEW DIRECTIONS IN SIEVE THEORY”

We give a survey lecture on the development of sieve theory and then discuss recent developments initiated by Yitang Zhang, Maynard and Tao that approach the twin prime problem. At the end of the talk, we will highlight the ”higher rank Selberg sieve” that emerges from these developments and discuss recent joint work with Akshaa Vatwani. The talk will be accessible to a wide audience.
