Math G9906: Research Seminar in Number Theory (Spring 2015)

Here are the notes I am taking for Dorian Goldfeld's ongoing research seminar in number theory. As the seminar progresses, these notes will be revised and perhaps compiled into a single document. I recommend that you visit this page from time to time for the most updated version.

Due to my own lack of understanding of the materials, I have inevitably introduced both mathematical and typographical errors in these notes. Please email me if you have any corrections or comments.
