Student Number Theory Seminar

Tuesday, November 21, 2023 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Talk #1: Jason Hou, University of Waterloo

"Sieve methods in combinatorics"

In this talk, I will give a formulation for the Turán sieve and a 'simple sieve' in the context of bipartite graphs and apply it to a graph colouring problem.

Talk #2: Adam Jelinsky, University of Waterloo

"Properties of the Pseudo-randomness of a³ mod p²"

In this talk, I will be discussing methods and tactics used to quantify and understand the apparent pseudo-random distribution of a³ mod p², the evidence we have to fit the random model proposed, and the required steps in order to formally prove it.
