Title : Mathematics with a taste of Combinatorics on Words FOURTH PART: MATHEMATICAL LOGIC

Speaker : Mehdi Golafshan

Organization : Knots and representation theory 


First, we will review the concepts of first-order logic. Then we will talk about Logical characterization of words. Topics such as Presburger's theorem, Buchi's theorem and Characterization of k-automatic sequences. The application of the subject appears in the Thue-Morse word.

This talk will be given by zoom

Title: On distribution of primes and divisor functions in arithmetic progressions

Speaker : Fei Wei (YMSC)

Organization : Seminar in Moscow and Beijing by zoom

Abstract : In this talk, we first give a brief introduction to Zhang's work on bounded gaps between primes. He showed that there are infinitely many pairs of primes such that their difference is bounded by a positive constant. Then we introduce the joint work with Zhang and Xue on general divisor functions in arithmetic progressions.
