Breaking the ½-Barrier for the Twisted Second Moment of Dirichlet L-Functions
Kyle Pratt, Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,

I will discuss recent work, joint with Bui, Robles, and Zaharescu, on a moment problem for Dirichlet L-Functions. By way of motivation I will spend some time discussing the Lindelöf Hypothesis, and work of Bettin, Chandee, and Radziwiłł. The talk will be accessible, as I will give lots of background information and will not dwell on technicalities.
