Speaker: Jon Bober, University of Washington Date: February 9, 2012 at 3:35pm in Padelford C401 Title: The distribution of character sums Abstract: I'll describe experiments and results about the distribution of the size of sums of Dirichlet characters. In particular, I'll focus on the frequency with which character sums are large, but I will also discuss the location of the maximum and average values of sums.
