Abstract:

First we will give a brief introduction to some of the ideas and principal objects of study in analytic and algebraic number theory. We will then specialize to the topic of Euclidean number fields and state a recent result of the speaker. In the last part of the talk, time permitting, we will indicate some of the ideas that go into the proof.
