At our departmental number theory seminar during this upcoming week, namely Thursday, January 16th, I will give a talk on power-free values of polynomials and Heath-Brown’s determinant method. The talk will take place at 1:30 PM, in room MC 5045. Title and abstract below.
History and Progress on Power-Free Values of Polynomials
In this talk I will give a historical overview of the progress made on the power-free values of polynomials problem. In particular, we will focus on the determinant method developed by Bombieri and Pila and extended by Heath-Brown and Salberger.
