The conference will focus on analytic number theory, with emphasis on its many relationships with analysis and spectral theory. Topics to be highlighted include arithmetic quantum chaos, analysis of families of L-functions, arithmetic statistics, and connections with ergodic theory. It will include a problem session to suggest future directions for the field.
The last several decades have seen a number of surprising and useful connections between analytic number theory and other topics, especially analysis and spectral theory. As a few examples:
This conference is being organized in honor of Peter Sarnak on the occasion of his 61st birthday.
