Abstract

Number theory is the theory of integers, which looks most familiar and elementary to most of us. Yet the deep study of number theory encompasses almost every branch of pure mathematics: from harmonic analysis to algebraic geometry, and from abstract algebra to complex analysis. At the heart of many fundamental problems in number theory is a family of L-functions, known as automorphic L-functions. Elementary examples of automorphic L-functions include the Riemann zeta function and the Dirichlet L-functions.

In this talk we shall try to give an intuitive introduction to L-functions, and explain their roles in some familiar number theory problems.

Jianshu Li was born in Xiaoshan, Hangzhou. In 1981 he graduated from Zhejiang university, and went on to do graduate work in the US. After obtaining his Ph. D from Yale, he worked at MIT and the University of Maryland, becoming a full professor at the later in 1996. In 1998 he joined the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and later served as the head of the mathematics department there. Li is currently the dean of the School of Mathematical Sciences at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
