### What the #@!* is the circle method?

Seminar

6th October 2017, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Howard House, 4th Floor Seminar Room

(A dummy's guide to Birch's theorem)

If you spend enough time in the pure maths department, especially in the number theory corners you are bound to run into the phrase "the circle method". Probably many times. I aim to explain what this ubiquitous and useful tool is, how it works and what it's good for via one of it's most diverse and celebrated applications: Birch's Theorem.

Questions strongly encouraged but preferably more polite than the talk title.
