Iwasawa Theory and Arithmetic Statistics

Mathematics Colloquium | Debanjana Kundu | Apr 4th, 2023

  • This event has passed.


In this talk I will give a brief overview of my current research on questions that lie in the intersection of Iwasawa theory and arithmetic statistics.

The first part of this talk will be expository in nature, where I will give an introduction to Iwasawa theory and explain the main questions that drive a lot of the research in this area. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss some of the progress made towards questions on the average behaviour of Iwasawa invariants – both the classical Iwasawa invariants and Iwasawa invariants of Selmer groups of elliptic curves.
