Talk Title: A moment with L-functions


The Riemann zeta function plays a central role in our understanding of prime numbers. In this talk, we will review some of its amazing properties as well as properties of other similar functions, the Dirichlet L-functions. We will then see how the method of moments can help us in the study of L-functions and some surprising properties of their values. Finally, we will present some recent results about L-functions associated with cubic characters.
