Algebra Seminar
Cohen-Lenstra heuristics and counting number fields
Jack Klys (University of Calgary)

Tuesday, April 16, 2019
11:00am – 11:50am

Storrs Campus
Monteith, 214

We will discuss the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics, both in the classical and non-abelian setting. In particular we will make the connection between these heuristics and the problem of counting extensions of quadratic fields with fixed Galois groups, and when knowledge of the latter implies such heuristics. Finally we will discuss our recent work on the non-abelian case and counting unramified 2-group extensions of quadratic fields.
