The Distribution of Prime Numbers Preliminary version
Prerequisites: The equivalent of Math 575 (number theory) and Math 596 (complex variables); ability to write a proof (Math 451).
From departmental course description:
This is a first course in analytic number theory. It will cover
theory of the Riemann zeta function and Dirichlet L-functions, distribution of
and Dirichlet's theorem on primes in arithmetic progression. It will follow Davenport, with some topics from the other books.
Other topics may include basic sieve methods, large sieve, and topics in probabilistic number theory.
Grades: These will be based on problem sets.
Homework: There will be approximately 7 problem sets.
Here is, from a previous version of course, a
