Title: PROMYS Guest Lecture: Cyclotomic polynomials and roots of unity
Speaker: Kiran S. Kedlaya (University of California, San Diego, USA)
Date: 22 May 2023
Time: 5 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

We introduce an important family of polynomials, the cyclotomic polynomials, whose roots are the roots of unity of a fixed order. We explore the structure of these polynomials and the number fields that they generate, including a brief look at Gauss sums.
