Frank Thorne's Talks

Wow, seriously, Google?

Research Talks

Here are the slides for various Beamer talks I have given, usually at multiple institutions (see my CV for a list).

Bounded gaps between products of primes with applications to elliptic curves and ideal class groups.

Maier matrices beyond $\mathbb{Z}$: long version, short version.

Non-Research Talks

At UW-Madison, Stanford, ...

Note: Most of these links have been unceremoniously killed. Google was ranking them ridiculously high, usually directly in front of the original papers and very often first, and these notes were too hastily written to deserve a position at the top of the queue. (My notes on the Davenport-Heilbronn theorem in particular... wow, those were awful! Please read my paper with Takashi Taniguchi instead.)

I'm happy to send any of the notes to anybody by request.
