"Introduction to Elementary Sieve"
This talk aims at introducing sieve theory in an elementary way. Sieve problem and two elementary sieves - larger sieve and square sieve - will be discussed in detail, as well as their applications and a broad overview of the historical development of sieve theory. Some standard results including the Mobius inversion formula will also be covered in this talk to make the proof self-contained.
