What is.. a random multiplicative function?

Talk by Maxim Gerspach

Date: 19.05.20  Time: 16.30 - 17.30  Room:

Random multiplicative functions mark a crucial tool in studying the behaviour of the Riemann zeta function both heuristically and rigorously on short random intervals on the critical line. Moreover, they have a probabilistic structure that makes their study interesting in their own right. In my talk I will explain what they are, and try to outline how they behave and how they relate to the Riemann zeta function. I will attempt to keep things on a very accessible level and confine largely to heuristic discussions.
