Title: Moments of random trigonometric polynomials with multiplicative coefficients
Abstract: In this talk I will discuss some recent work, joint with Alon Nishry and Brad Rodgers, concerning the distribution of trigonometric polynomials
Q_{f,N}(θ) = ∑_{n}_{≤N} f(n) e(nθ).
We will first discuss some results and conjectures for deterministic sequences f(n) and then move on to random coefficients f(n) = X(n) which are multiplicatively generated by a sequence of Rademacher or Steinhaus random variables. I will give a SalemZygmund type result for the distribution of Q_{X,N}_{ }and explain how it relates to an arithmetic point counting problem, via a moment method. Obtaining almost sure estimates for Q_{X,N}_{∞} presents additional challenges.

Title: Relative trace formula and averages of central values of triple product Lfunctions
Abstract: Feigon and Whitehouse studied central values of triple product Lfunctions averaged over newforms of weight 2 and prime level. They proved some exact formulas applying the results of Gross and Kudla which link central values of triple Lfunctions to classical "periods". In this talk, I will generalize their results for more cases using Jacquet's relative trace formula and Ichino's period formula, and apply these average formulas to the nonvanishing problem.

Title: Classical Diophantine problems and the Birch and SwinnertonDyer conjecture
Abstract: The Birch and SwinnertonDyer conjecture is one of the principal open problems of number theory today, which asserts that the size of the group of rational points on an elliptic curve is related to the behavior of the central value of the associated Lfunction. In this lecture, I will present a few classical Diophantine problems, and their connection to the conjecture of Birch and SwinnertonDyer.

Abstract: Given a nonincreasing approximating function $\psi$, the classical KhintchineGroshev Theorem gives a zeroone law on the Lebesgue measure of the set of $\psi$approximable matrices. In this talk we will discuss a quantitative KhintchineGroshev Theorem with an extra congruence condition. Our method replies on a classical lattice point counting result of Schmidt. This is joint work with Mahbub Alam and Anish Ghosh.

Title: Bounds for moments of cubic and quartic Dirichlet Lfunctions
Abstract: Moments of Lfunctions at the central point over a family of characters of a fixed order have been extensively studied in the literature. Although many results are available on moments of quadratic Dirichlet Lfunctions, less is known for the moments of higher order Dirichlet Lfunctions. In this talk, I will explain how to apply the recent lower bounds principal of Heap and Soundararajan and an earlier method of Soundararajan with a refinement by Harper to obtain sharp bounds for moments of central values of cubic and quartic Dirichlet Lfunctions. This is a joint work with L. Zhao.

Title: Padic Hodge, prisms and Galois representations
Abstract: Padic Hodge theory is an analogue of classical Hodge theory in complex geometry, it plays an important role in the study of Galois representations, which is fundamental in algebraic number theory. Recently, Peter Scholze and Bhargav Bhatt found a new perspective on padic Hodge theory, namely the theory of prisms. In a recent preprint, we prove that Galois representations and (φ,Γ)modules can both be incorporated in this new framework, and we can recover the classical result that these two objects are equivalent. In this talk, I will explain this result together with the general background.

Title: Uniform Titchmarsh divisor problems
Abstract: The Titchmarsh divisor problem asks for an asymptotic evaluation of the average of the divisor function evaluated at shifted primes. We will discuss how strong error terms that are uniform in the shift parameters could be obtained using spectral theory of automorphic forms. We will also discuss the automorphic analogue of the Titchmarsh divisor problem. This is a joint work with E. Assing and V. Blomer.

We will illustrate the method using the Lambda modular function which is a joint work with Tonghai Yang and Peng Yu.

Title: Some results on the central Lvalues for GL(2) and GL(3)
Abstract: In these talks, I will talk about the moments of central Lvalues for GL(2) Maass forms and the subconex problem for selfdual GL(3) Maass forms over imaginary quadratic fields. Our main tools are the Kuznetsov trace formula for GL(2) and Voronoi summation formulae for GL(2) and GL(3) over number fields. My focus will be on the analysis on the complex numbers. These are joint works with Shengchi Liu.

Title: A pair correlation problem and counting lattice points via the zeta function
Abstract: The pair correlation function is a local measure of the randomness of a sequence. The behaviour of the pair correlation of sequences of the form ({a_n alpha}) for almost every real number alpha where (a_n) is a sequence of integers is by now relatively wellunderstood. In particular, a connection to additive combinatorics was made by relating that behaviour to the additive energy of the sequence (a_n).
Zeev Rudnick and Niclas Technau have recently started investigating the case of (a_n) being a sequence of real numbers. This talk is based on joint work in progress with Christoph Aistleitner and Marc Munsch in which we pursue this line of research.

Title: On Shifted Convolution Sums of Arithmetic Functions
Abstract: In this talk, we shall summarize our recent results on various shifted convolution sums of arithmetic functions. We develop some simple approaches to study correlations of Fourier coefficients of cusp forms with other arithmetic functions. Our results improve and streamline some previous results established by more sophisticated methods, and establish some new results on shifted convolution sums for higher rank groups.

Title: Distinct distances on hyperbolic surfaces
Abstract: Erd\H{o}s in 1946 asked the question of finding the minimal number of distinct distances among any $N$ points in the plane. In our work, we give complete answer for this problem on all hyperbolic surfaces of finite volume. For any cofinite Fuchsian group $\Gamma\subset\mathrm{PSL}(2, \mathbb{R})$, we show that any set of $N$ points on the hyperbolic surface $\Gamma\backslash\mathbb{H}^2$ determines $\geq C_{\Gamma} \frac{N}{\log N}$ distinct distances for some constant $C_{\Gamma}>0$ depending only on $\Gamma$. In particular, for $\Gamma$ being any finite index subgroup of $\mathrm{PSL}(2, \mathbb{Z})$ with $\mu=[\mathrm{PSL}(2, \mathbb{Z}): \Gamma ]<\infty$, any set of $N$ points on $\Gamma\backslash\mathbb{H}^2$ determines $\geq C\frac{N}{\mu\log N}$ distinct distances for some absolute constant $C>0$.

Title: An introduction to RankinSelberg Lfunction and its applications
Abstract: Rankin and Selberg introduced a new tool into the study of cusp forms independently at around the same time, which is known today as the RankinSelberg method. In 1985, Waldspurger got an important formula of the RankinSelberg L function. After that, Yuan, Zhang, Zhang generalized the Waldspurger’s formula, and get a similar formula on Shimura curves. Later, Cai, Shu, Tian established the most general explicit version of the Waldspurger formula. In this talk, I will give an overall introduction to the RankinSelberg L function. Also I start with an elliptic curve which is associated with the cube sum problem and give some arithmetic applications of the explicit Waldspurger formula.

Title: Analogues of Alladi's formula
Abstract: In this talk, we will mainly introduce the analogue of one of Alladi's formulas over $\mathbb{Q}$ with respect to the Dirichlet convolutions involving the M\"{o}bius function $\mu(n)$, which is related to the natural densities of sets of primes by recent work of Dawsey, Sweeting and Woo, and Kural et al. Several examples will be given. For instance, if $(k, \ell)=1$, then
$$\sum_{\begin{smallmatrix}n\geq 2\\ p(n)\equiv \ell (\operatorname{mod} k)\end{smallmatrix}}\frac{\mu(n)}{\varphi(n)}=\frac1{\varphi(k)},$$
where $p(n)$ is the smallest prime divisor of $n$, and $\varphi(n)$ is Euler's totient function. This refines one of Hardy's formulas in 1921. At the end, We will give some conjectures on more analogues.

Title: An equidistribution theorem for cuspidal automorphic representations for GSp(4)
Abstract: Equidistribution theorems for a family of automorphic representations of a reductive group have been studied in various aspects by many mathematicians. This is connected to the equidistribution of Hecke eigenvalues of classical modular forms. In this talk we will discuss an equidistribution result, a version of socalled automorphic Plancherel density theorem, for a family of cuspidal automorphic representations of GSp(4). We formulate our theorem explicitly in terms of the number of cuspidal automorphic representations of GSp(4) satisfying certain conditions at the local places. To count the number of these cuspidal automorphic representations, we will explore the connection between Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and cuspidal automorphic representations of GSp(4). This is a joint work with Manami Roy and Ralf Schmidt.

Title: Average Central Lvalues on U(2,1)$\times$ U(1,1), Nonvanishing and Subconvexity
Abstract: In this talk, we study an average of automorphic periods on $U(2,1)\times U(1,1)$. We also compute local factors in IchinoIkeda formulas for these periods to obtain an explicit asymptotic expression. Combining them together we would deduce some important properties of central Lvalues on $U(2,1)\times U(1,1)$ over certain family: the first moment, nonvanishing and subconvexity. This is joint work with Philippe Michel and Dinakar Ramakrishnan.

Title: The distribution of squarefree integers in short intervals
Abstract: The squarefree integers are divisible by no square of a prime. It is well known that they have a positive density within the integers. We consider the number of squarefree integers in a random interval of size H: # {n in [x,x+H] : n squarefree}, where x is a random number between 1 and X. The variance of this quantity has been studied by R. R. Hall in 1982, obtaining asymptotics in the range H < X^{2/9}, with a proof method that stays in 'physical space'. Keating and Rudnick recently conjectured that his result persists for the entire range H < X^{1epsilon}. We make progress on this conjecture, with properties of Dirichlet polynomials playing a role in our results. We will show how one can verify the conjecture for H slightly beyond X^{1/2}. This is joint work with Kaisa Matomäki, Maks Radziwill and Brad Rodgers.

Title: On a generalization of the Euler totient function
Abstract: J. Kaczorowski defined the generalized Euler totient function $\varphi(n, F)$ corresponding to a polynomial Euler product $F$. Let $E(x, F)$ denote the error term in the asymptotic formula of the summatory function of $\varphi(n, F).$ J. Kaczorowski proved that the mean square of $E(x, F)$ has an asymptotic formula if $F$ satisfies GRH. We can prove a sharper asymptotic formula under GRH.

Title: Erdos distinct distances problem in hyperbolic surfaces
Abstract: Erdos distinct distances problem asks for the lower bound of number of distinct distances between pairs of points from any finite point sets of given size. The problem in the Euclidean plane was revolved by L. Guth and N. H. Katz in 2011. We study the problem in hyperbolic surfaces. The key in our work is to introduce an invariant (we call it "geodesic cover") for Fuchsian groups, which summons copies of fundamental polygons in the hyperbolic plane to cover pairs of representatives realizing distances in the corresponding hyperbolic surface. Then we use estimates of this invariant to study the distinct distances problem in hyperbolic surfaces. Especially, for S from a large class of hyperbolic surfaces, we establish the nearly optimal bound >=C_S N/\log N for distinct distances determined by any N points in S, where C_S>0 is some constant depending only on S. In particular, for S being modular surface or standard regular of genus >=2, we evaluate C_S explicitly.

Title: Random Models for Artin Twin Primes
Abstract: We say that a prime number p is an Artin prime for g if g is a primitive root mod p. For appropriately chosen integers g and d, we present a conjecture for the asymptotic number of prime pairs (p,p+d) such that both p and p+d are Artin primes for g. Our result suggests that the distribution of Artin prime pairs, amongst the ordinary prime pairs, is largely governed by a Poisson binomial distribution.

Title: Recent developments on polynomial Szemeredi configuration
Abstract: In 1996, Bergelson and Leibman proved that any positive density subset of [N] contains a nontrivial progression of the form x, x+P_1(y),…,x+P_k(y), where P_1,…,P_k\in\mathbb{Z}[y] are polynomials with zero constant terms. This is the first polynomial generalization of Szemeredi’s theorem. In this talk, I am going to discuss some developments on polynomial arithmetic progressions, and this is based on recent works of Sarah Peluse and Sean Prendiville, and upcoming works of Sean Prendiville, Xuancheng Shao and myself.

Title: Prime lattice points in ovals.
Abstract: The study of the number of lattice points in dilated regions has a long history, with several outstanding open problems. In this lecture, I will describe a new variant of the problem, in which we study the distribution of lattice points with prime coordinates. We count lattice points in which both coordinates are prime, suitably weighted, which lie in the dilate of a convex planar domain having smooth boundary, with nowhere vanishing curvature. We obtain an asymptotic formula, with the main term being the area of the dilated domain, and our goal is to study the remainder term. Assuming the Riemann Hypothesis, we give a sharp upper bound, and further assuming that the positive imaginary parts of the zeros of the Riemann zeta functions are linearly independent over the rationals allows us to give a formula for the value distribution function of the properly normalized remainder term. Time permitting, I will explain some background motivation coming from Quantum Chaos. (joint work with Bingrong Huang).

Title: On the exceptional set of the generalized Ramanujan conjecture
Abstract: For any prime $p$ and HeckeMaass form $\phi$ on $GL(n) (n\geq2)$, $\alpha_{\phi,1}(p),\ldots,\alpha_{\phi,n}(p)$ denote the corresponding Satake parameters of $\phi$ at $p$. The generalized Ramanujan conjecture asserts that $\alpha_{\phi,i}(p)=1$, $i=1,\ldots,n$. In this talk we will survey the recent results and developments centered on this problem. This is a joint work with Lau YukKam and Ng Ming Ho.

Title: Circle Method in Roth Problem and in Thin Subgroup of $SL_2(\mathbb{C})$
Abstract: Circle method is an important tool in classical WaringGoldbach problems. The first part of the report aims to introduce an application in classical Roth Problems.
In the past decade, Bourgain and Kontorovich studied integers from thin group orbits using circle method. The second part of the report aims to introduce an asymptotic localglobal principle problem in thin subgroup of $SL_2(\mathbb{C})$.
Circle method in these two problems will be compared at the end.

Moreover, we will also discuss recent applications to the distribution of Kloosterman sums.

Title: On Motohashi's formula
Abstract: The original Motohashi's formula relates the fourth moment of the Riemann zeta function to the cubic moment of the Lfunctions attached to modular forms of full level. Based on various integral representations of Lfunction, MichelVenkatesh gave a beautiful "oneline proof" of Motohashi's formula, recently rigorously implemented by Nelson. Based on Weil's reinterpretation of integral representations, we will offer a "onegraph" proof in this talk. We may discuss the relation with other methods if time permits.

Title: Bessel functions and Beyond Endoscopy
Abstract: In this talk, I will first introduce the thesis of Akshay Venkatesh on Beyond Endoscopy for $\mathrm{Sym}^2$ $L$functions on $\mathrm{GL}_2$ over $\mathbb{Q}$ or a totally real field. The idea follows a suggestion of Peter Sarnak on using the Kuznetsov relative trace formula instead of the ArthurSelberg trace formula for the Beyond Endoscopy problem. I will then discuss how to generalize Venkatesh's work from totally real to arbitrary number fields. The main supplement is an integral formula for the Fourier transform of Bessel functions over $\mathbb{C}$.

Title: Mean dimension and von NeumannLück rank
Abstract: The mean dimension is an invariant of topological dynamical systems, which is crucial to solve the embedding problems of dynamical systems. The von NeumannLück rank is an invariant of group ring modules in $L^2$invariants theory. We show that the mean dimension of every algebraic action, coincides with the von NeumannLück rank of the associated modules. The crucial ingredient of the proof is the introduction of a new invariant for integral group ring modules.

Title: The Selberg–Delange method in short intervals for the Dedekind zeta function
Abstract: Many number theoretic problems lead to the study of the mean values of arithmetic functions. Between 1954 and 1971, Selberg and Delange developed a quite general method using the analytic properties of the Dirichlet series associated to the arithmetic function. This is nowadays known as the SelbergDelange method. In this talk, we establish a general mean value result of Dedekind Zetafunction over short intervals with the SelbergDelange method.

Title: On cubefree numbers of the form [n^c] over special sequences and their applications
Abstract: In this talk, we will prove that there are infinite cubefree numbers in some special PiatetskiShapiro sequences of the form [n^c] with fixed c(1<c<2). This improves previous results. This can also be seen as a generalization for the result of Deshouillers. As an application, we also get lower bounds for certain sums with fixed c(1<c<2). Previously, such type lower bounds were only given with fixed c(1<c<149/87) by Baker, Banks, Brudern, Shparlinski and Weingartner. Such type lower bounds can be used to deal with the largest prime factor for PiatetskiShapiro sequences.
