## Number Theory Seminar

### Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

**Time:** 4:30-5:30 p.m. **Place:** Jeffery Hall 319

**Speaker:** Brad Rodgers (Queen's University)

**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.
