Math 205: Topics in Number Theory (Winter 2018)

Arithmetic Statistics

Course description

Instructor: Alina Bucur (alina at math dot ucsd dot edu), APM 7151
Lectures: MWF 1-2pm, APM 2402
Office hours: by appointment only (email!)

Books: There are no textbooks on the subject!

Other sources: Will be posted as we go along.


Work: There will be some assignments, no exams, and a project. The goal of the assignments is to supplement what is said in class. The goal of the project (which I promise to read!) is for you to elaborate on some topic in arithmetic statistics beyond what is covered in class. Your topic will be chosen in consultation with me; I will have some suggestions as the term goes on.
