# Randomness of prime numbers

Extra Form
Lecturer 임선희

date Nov 15, 2012

Ergodic theory of horocycle flow and nilflow has been proved to be useful for analyzing the randomness of Mobius function, a function which reveals the mystery of prime numbers. In this survey talk, we will introduce Mobius function and several conjectures about its randomness, such as Chowla conjecture and Hardy-Littlewood conjecture. We will explain results of Green-Tao-Zielger and Bourgain-Sarnak-Ziegler related to these conjectures. This talk is intended for senior undergraduate students and first year graduate students.

4. ### Mixed type PDEs and compressible flow

If density of flow is globally a constant, then the flow is said incompressible. Otherwise, the flow is said compressible. Flow motion of compressible inviscid flow is governed by Euler system. The Euler system is a nonlinear PDE system desc...
