Title: Moments and pseudomoments of the Riemann zeta-function.

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss moments of the Riemann zeta-function and "pseudomoments", in which the zeta-function is replaced by a finite Dirichlet polynomial. I hope to explain the connection to random multiplicative functions and if there is sufficient time discuss a conjecture of Helson (recently proved by Harper) along with a weighted version previously proved by Bondarenko, Heap, and Seip.
