Speaker: Alex Kontorovich, Rutgers

Abstract: We give a detailed analysis of a heuristic model for the failure of "saturation" in instances of the Affine Sieve having toral Zariski closure. Based on this model, we formulate precise conjectures on several classical problems of arithmetic interest, and test these against empirical data. This is joint work with Jeff Lagarias.
