The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a vibrant group working in number theory and arithmetic geometry, with interests spanning various aspects of the Langlands program, Iwasawa theory, and Diophantine geometry. The group organizes the Number Theory Seminar.

- Jennifer Balakrishnan: p-adic heights, p-adic integration, rational points on curves, and computation
- Li-Mei Lim: automorphic forms, multiple Dirichlet series, L-functions
- Robert Pollack: modular forms, Iwasawa theory, p-adic variation, and computational aspects
- David Rohrlich: root numbers, self-dual motives, Artin representations, and arithmetic statistics
- Glenn Stevens: p-adic variation of automorphic cohomology, Iwasawa Theory, and p-adic aspects of Hilbert’s twelfth problem
- Jared Weinstein: arithmetic geometry, automorphic forms, representation theory

**Visiting faculty: **

- Amnon Besser (2022-2023): arithmetic geometry, p-adic integration, p-adic cohomology, Shimura varieties, automorphic forms, algebraic cycles, algebraic K-theory
