What is.. the average value of an L-function?

Talk by Subhajit Jana

Date: 05.05.20  Time: 16.30 - 17.30  Room:

L-functions which are objects like classical Riemann zeta function are some central objects in modern number theory. Several important and interesting questions in number theory and related fields (mathematical physics, homogeneous dynamics, spectral theory etc.) are directly or indirectly related to the question about the average size of special values of these L-functions. In this (very down to earth) talk I will try to explore some (folklore) conjectures about the (average) size of L-functions and progress towards them.
