Distribution of Modular Symbols
Linfoot Number Theory Seminar
23rd June 2021, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Fry Building, Online
Motivated by a series of conjectures of Mazur, Rubin and Stein, the study of the arithmetic statistics of modular symbols has received a lot of attention in recent years. In this talk, I will highlight several results about the distribution of modular symbols, including their Gaussian distribution and the residual equidistribution modulo p. I will also talk about generalisations to quadratic imaginary fields and higher dimensions.
