The math department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will host Midwest Number Theory Day on Friday, November 6, 2009.

We especially encourage people new to the region to come! This year's speakers are:

All talks will be in Van Vleck B321. The early finish is designed to accommodate those visitors and locals who wish to attend the Distinguished Visiting Lecture by Persi Diaconis at 4.

On Saturday and Sunday, November 7-8, 2009, we will host the Sixth Midwest Number Theory Conference for Graduate Students. We encourage graduate students who are attending the latter to come a day early for Midwest Number Theory Day.


If you plan to attend MNTD, please register here. Registration is requested only for determining the quantity of coffee and snacks. We will not turn away unregistered participants, nor will we deny them coffee and snacks.


To come. We'll start around 9:30 and be done by 4 (so as not to conflict with the colloquium by Diaconis.) .
