Ratios of zeta functions \& characteristic polynomials

Presented by: 
N Snaith [Bristol]
Friday 16th July 2004 - 16:00 to 16:45
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Matrix Ensembles and L-Functions

This talk will describe the heuristic method of calculating averages of ratios of zeta and L-functions used by Conrey, Farmer and Zirnbauer to generalize conjectures of Farmer. It will include applications of these ratio formulae and a new method devised with Conrey and Forrester will be discussed for calculating the analogous random matrix quantities.
