The powers of logarithm for quadratic twists
We briefly describe how to get the power of logarithm in the asymptotic for the number of vanishings in the family of even quadratic twists of a given elliptic curve. There are four different
Secondary terms in the number of vanishings of quadratic twists of elliptic curve L-functions
We examine the number of vanishings of quadratic twists of the L-function associated to an elliptic curve. Applying a conjecture for the full asymptotics of the moments of critical L-values we obtain
Height of rational points on quadratic twists of a given elliptic curve
We formulate a conjecture about the distribution of the canonical height of the lowest non‐torsion rational point on a quadratic twist of a given elliptic curve, as the twist varies. This conjecture
Height of rational points on quadratic twists of a given elliptic curve
We formulate a conjecture about the distribution of the canonical height of the lowest non-torsion rational point on a quadratic twist of a given elliptic curve, as the twist varies. This conjecture
Nonvanishing of twists of $L$-functions attached to Hilbert modular forms
We describe algorithms for computing central values of twists of $L$-functions associated to Hilbert modular forms, carry out such computations for a number of examples, and compare the results of
Average rank in families of quadratic twists: a geometric point of view
We investigate the average rank in the family of quadratic twists of a given elliptic curve defined over $\mathbb{Q}$, when the curves are ordered using the canonical height of their lowest
Rational and Integral Points on Quadratic Twists of a Given Hyperelliptic Curve
We show that the abc-conjecture implies that few quadratic twists of a given hyperelliptic curve have any non-trivial rational or integral points; and indicate how these considerations dovetail with
Computing Central Values of Twisted L-Series: The Case of Composite Levels
We describe a general method to compute weight- modular forms "associated" with a given weight-2 modular form ƒ of level N, and relate its Fourier coefficients to central values of quadratic twists
Random matrix theory and number theory
We review some of the connections between Random Matrix Theory and Number Theory. These include modelling the value distributions of the Riemann zeta-function and other L-functions, and the
Vanishing and non‐vanishing Dirichlet twists of L‐functions of elliptic curves
TLDR
The vanishing and non-vanishing of the central values L(E,1,\chi) of the twisted L-function as \chi ranges over Dirichlet characters of given order are examined.

Abstract: We study the characteristic polynomials Z(U, θ) of matrices U in the Circular Unitary Ensemble (CUE) of Random Matrix Theory. Exact expressions for any matrix size N are derived for the
Zeroes of zeta functions and symmetry
Hilbert and Polya suggested that there might be a natural spectral interpretation of the zeroes of the Riemann Zeta function. While at the time there was little evidence for this, today the evidence
The square-free sieve and the rank of elliptic curves
Let E be an elliptic curve over Q. A celebrated theorem of Mordell asserts that E(Q), the (abelian) group of rational points of E, is finitely generated. By the rank of E we mean the rank of E(Q).

Recently Katz and Sarnak introduced the idea of a symmetry group attached to a family of L-functions, and they gave strong evidence that the symmetry group governs many properties of the distribution
