Brief Description:
Special Note:

The capacity of a compact set in the plane is a measure of its size. Algebraic integers are solutions to polynomial equations with integer coefficients. I will discuss the Fekete-Szego Theorem (1955) that relates these two concepts. If there is time, I'll explain how it connects to the study of complex polynomial dynamics.
