Undergraduate Colloquium

Title: The legacy of Erdos: dynamics of numbers
Speaker: Bryna Kra
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Paul Erdos wrote almost 1500 papers with hundreds of collaborators and one measure of his influence is captured by the Erdos number counting connections among mathematicians via collaborations. He was well known for posing numerous problems in combinatorics and number theory, offering monetary prizes for the solution of many questions. Some of these conjectures have had great influence in dynamical systems, creating connections to seemingly unrelated fields. This talk will cover those developments on uncovering hidden structures in large sets of integers, including the solution to some conjectures of Erdos this year and some problems that are still left open.
