|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.
