MSCS Graduate Student Seminar

Fall 2000

SPEAKER: Jeremy Teitelbaum
TITLE: The p-adic numbers
ABSTRACT: In this series of two lectures I will introduce the field of p-adic numbers and describe a very few of their applications in number theory. This lecture falls under two different categories of talks in this seminar: things every graduate student should know; and an introduction to faculty research.
