### On prime values of binary quadratic forms with a thin variable

Heilbronn Number Theory Seminar

20th March 2019, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Howard House, 4th Floor Seminar Room

A result of Fouvry and Iwaniec states that there are infinitely many primes of the form x^2+y^2 where y is a prime number. In this talk we will see a generalization of this theorem to the situation of an arbitrary primitive positive definite binary quadratic form. This is joint work with Peter Cho-Ho Lam and Stanley Xiao. TBA
