## Number Theory Seminar - Brad Rodgers (Queen's University)

### Thursday, October 17th, 2019

**Time:** 4:30-5:30 p.m. **Place:** Jeffery Hall 422

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

**Title:** Moments and pseudomoments of the Riemann zeta-function, pt. 2.

**Abstract:** In a previous talk we discussed moments of the Riemann zeta function and "pseudomoments", in which the zeta-function is replaced by a finite Dirichlet polynomial. In this second talk we will further discuss random multiplicative functions and a variant of conjecture of Helson, proved with averaging weights by Bondarenko, Heap, and Seip. I hope to reintroduce the fundamental notions, so that this talk can be followed by audience members who missed the previous talk.
