Title: Heegner points in the level aspect and hybrid subconvexity
Speaker: Matthew Young
Speaker Info: Texas A&M
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will discuss some recent joint work with Sheng-Chi Liu and Riad Masri on the equidistribution of Heegner points. Heegner points are certain points in the upper half plane associated to integral binary quadratic forms. The collection of Heegner points of discriminant D < 0 (a set of cardinality the class number of D) is known to equidistribute in the fundamental domain. Actually this is known for the Heegner points of any fixed level q. I will discuss results that allow both q and D to vary together, with the application of giving an analog of Linnik's famous theorem on the first prime in an arithmetic progression.
