Probability theory and number theory

Steffen Højris Pedersen
(Institut for Matematik, Aarhus Universitet)
Foredrag for studerende
Fredag, 10 april, 2015, at 15:15-16:00, in Aud. D4 (1531-219)
Abstrakt:
"If something happens with positive probability, then it must happen at some point." This observation from probability theory can be used in other branches of mathematics to prove existence results. 

The talk will be about how such ideas and methods from probability theory can be applied in number theory. The talk will focus on the ideas, and only require basic probability theory.
