Primes, polynomials and points
Linfoot Number Theory Seminar

We will discuss the slightly surprising connection between two classical problems in number theory: How often a given polynomial is prime and whether or not a particular equation has solutions. We'll survey what's known about both problems and present some new 'on average' results.
