Geometric Analytic Number Theory


I will give an overview of recent progress by many people in analytic number theory over function fields like F_q(t), focusing on the relation between arithmetic-statistical problems over function fields and questions about the topology and algebraic geometry of moduli spaces (over finite fields and even over the complex numbers.) The talk will not assume knowledge of algebraic geometry
