The workshop aims to further illustrate the role of computational experiment and also to popularise number theoretic research and graduate study in Australia; initiate collaborative research in number theory within Australia; focus on recent achievements in computationally related number theory.
The invited lectures will be broadcast over the access grid network.
Keynote speakers include:
Jonathan Borwein (University of Newcastle)
Professor Borwein is a leading expert in analysis, number theory and one of the creators of experimental mathematics. He is known for an incredible number of contributions which relate special functions and integrals to the world of the numbers and mathematical constants. He will lecture on the arithmetic of uniform random walks.
Heng Huat Chan (National University of Singapore)
Professor Chan is well known for his prominent contributions to the areas influenced by Ramanujan. His lecture will be devoted to identities for modular forms.
Frank Garvan (University of Florida)
Professor Garvan is a worldwide specialist in q-series with numerous applications to number theory and combinatorics. He will report on congruences for modular functions.
Other speakers will include:
