Speaker: | Craig Spencer |

Affiliation: | Member, School of Mathematics |

Date: | Tuesday, May 12 |

Time/Room: | 10:30am - 12:30pm/S-101 |

In this talk, we will discuss how the circle method can be used to count solutions to Diophantine problems. After a brief overview of the circle method's history and applications, we will sketch how to prove an asymptotic for the number of integer solutions of bounded size for a particular equation.
