For 2014-15 I will be teaching MATH10101, Sets, Numbers and Functions, MATH20101, Real Analysis and MATH31022, Analytic Number Theory.

Courses I have taught in previous years that you might find interesting.


 A few Gaussian Primes

Analytic Number Theory with special interest in the "geometric" distribution of ideals in number fields and, in particular, the distribution of Gaussian primes in the plane. The (almost certainly false?) conjecture in this area is that one can walk from the origin of the plane out to infinity with steps of bounded length stepping only on the Gaussian primes.
