My Ph.D. thesis: Analytic Computation of the Prime-Counting Function
From a lecture for the SFU Number Theory Study Group, a survey talk on Computations related to the Riemann Hypothesis.
Expanding on some lectures given for the SFU Number Theory Study Group. Notes on Donald Newman's ``First Proof'' of the Prime Number Theorem.
For a talk at the 2001 AMS/MAA Joint Meetings, New Orleans. The Density of Pseudoprimes with Two Prime Factors
Presented several times--this version was given at the REU Number Theory Seminar, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, July 17, 2001. Memory-efficient sieving, Dirichlet's divisor problem, and related problems:
From a talk for the special session on Dynamical, Spectral, and Arithmetic Zeta-Functions at the January 1999 AMS Joint Mathematics Meeting, San Antonio TX -- on Fast Computation of the Riemann Zeta Function to Arbitrary Accuracy (slightly revised and expanded):
From a talk at the 1998 Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium III on Robert Bennion's Hopping Sieve:source files for programs.
From a talk at the 1998 meeting of the Illinois Number Theory Association, giving a survey of my thesis research on Implementing the Lagarias-Odlyzko Analytic Algorithm for $\pi(x)$:
From a talk at the 5th conference of the Canadian Number Theory Association, on An Asymptotic Expansion of Ramanujan:a preprint of the full paper that will appear in the conference proceedings.
