DATE :
Le vendredi 8 décembre 2017 / Friday, December 8, 2017

HEURE / TIME :
16 h / 4:00 p.m.

CONFÉRENCIER(S) / SPEAKER(S) :
James Maynard (University of Oxford)

TITRE / TITLE :
Primes with missing digits

LIEU / PLACE :
UQAM, Pavillon Président-Kennedy, 201, ave du Président-Kennedy, salle
PK-5115

RÉSUMÉ / ABSTRACT :
Many famous open questions about primes can be interpreted as questions
about the digits of primes in a given base.  We will talk about recent work
showing there are infinitely many primes with no 7 in their decimal
expansion.  (And similarly with 7 replaced by any other digit.) This shows
the existence of primes in a 'thin' set of numbers (sets which contain at
most X^{1-c} elements less than X) which is typically very difficult.

The proof relies on a fun mixture of tools including Fourier analysis,
Markov chains, Diophantine approximation, combinatorial geometry as well as
tools from analytic number theory.
