## 2022 Collaborative Research Group Funding Awarded to L-functions in Analytic Number Theory

- Date: 11/23/2021

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences is pleased to award funding for the Collaborative Research Group on L-functions in Analytic Number Theory.

Analytic number theory focuses on arithmetic questions through the lens of L-functions. These generating series encode arithmetic information and have connections with a host of other mathematical fields, such as algebraic number theory, harmonic analysis, Diophantine approximation, probability, representation theory, and computational number theory. The main focuses of this CRG include moments of L-functions and automorphic forms, explicit results in analytic number theory, and comparative prime number theory.

The group’s lead collaborators Alia Hamieh (UNBC), Habiba Kadiri (ULethbridge), Greg Martin (UBC), and Nathan Ng (ULethbridge) have expertise in these areas and are enthusiastic about collaborating with graduate students, postdocs, and visiting researchers to make significant progress in this field. More details on their group activities will be available on the PIMS CRG page here.
