The family of symmetric powers of an L-function associated with an elliptic curve with complex multiplication has received much attention from algebraic, automorphic and p-adic points of view. Here we examine this family from the perspectives of classical analytic number theory and random matrix theory, especially focusing on evidence for the symmetry type of the family. In particular, we investigate the values at the central point and give evidence that this family can be modeled by ensembles… 

Hilbert spaces and low-lying zeros of L-functions

This paper is meant to provide a general reference for how to solve a wide variety of optimization problems that arise when studying the distribution of the low-lying zeros of families of

Random Matrix Theory and Elliptic Curves

This grant focused on the use of random matrix theory (RMT) to understand the zeros of L-functions, in the context of the statistical properties of elliptic curves and arithmetic statistics, and showed relations between RMT and classification of elliptIC families based on L-Functions.

Quantum variance for dihedral Maass forms

We establish an asymptotic formula for the weighted quantum variance of dihedral Maass forms on $\Gamma_0(D) \backslash \mathbb H$ in the large eigenvalue limit, for certain fixed $D$. As predicted

Riemann’s hypothesis

There are 4 prime numbers less than 10; there are 25 primes less than 100; there are 168 primes less than 1000, and 1229 primes less than 10000. At what rate do the primes thin out? Today we use the



Integral Moments of L‐Functions

We give a new heuristic for all of the main terms in the integral moments of various families of primitive L‐functions. The results agree with previous conjectures for the leading order terms. Our

Low lying zeros of families of L-functions

In Iwaniec-Sarnak [IS] the percentages of nonvanishing of central values of families of GL_2 automorphic L-functions was investigated. In this paper we examine the distribution of zeros which are at

Applications of the L‐functions ratios conjectures

In upcoming papers by Conrey, Farmer and Zirnbauer there appear conjectural formulas for averages, over a family, of ratios of products of shifted L‐functions. In this paper we will present various

The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture

A polynomial relation f(x, y) = 0 in two variables defines a curve C0. If the coefficients of the polynomial are rational numbers then one can ask for solutions of the equation f(x, y) = 0 with x, y

Functoriality and Special Values of L -Functions

This is a semi-expository article concerning Langlands functoriality and Deligne’s conjecture on the special values of L-functions. The emphasis is on symmetric power L-functions associated to a

Autocorrelation of ratios of L-functions

We give a new heuristic for all of the main terms in the quotient of products of L-functions averaged over a family. These conjectures generalize the recent conjectures for mean values of

We present theoretical and numerical evidence for a random matrix theoretic approach to a conjecture about vanishings of quadratic twists of certain L-functions
