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.

  • Li-Mei Lim: automorphic forms, multiple Dirichlet series, L-functions
  • Robert Pollackmodular forms, Iwasawa theory, p-adic variation, and computational aspects
  • David Rohrlich: root numbers, self-dual motives, Artin representations, and arithmetic statistics
  • Glenn Stevensp-adic variation of automorphic cohomology, Iwasawa Theory, and p-adic aspects of Hilbert’s twelfth problem
