Number Theory

10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Room: Section B

The minisymposium will address recent results in combinatorial number theory, including recent work settling an old conjecture of Erdos and Graham. Applications will include periods of randomly chosen pseudorandom generators. The purpose is to bring this work to the attention of a broad audience. The target audience includes professional number theorists, and all with an interest in number theory.
