### Theses:

- Points on curves. (My PhD thesis at Princeton.)
[Standalone papers coming soon! Recent recorded talks on some of the chapters: Ch. 7, Ch.s 9 and 11.]

- The average elliptic curve has few integral points. (My senior thesis at Harvard.)

### Papers:

- The average number of rational points on odd genus two curves is bounded.
- Square-root cancellation for the signs of Latin squares.
*Combinatorica.*
- The average number of integral points on elliptic curves is bounded.
- van der Waerden and the primes.

- (with Steven J. Miller) Low-lying zeroes of Maass form L-functions.
*Int. Math. Res. Not.* (2015), no. 10, 2678-2701.
- (with Nadine Amersi, Geoffrey Iyer, Oleg Lazarev, Steven J. Miller, and Liyang Zhang) Maass waveforms and low-lying zeros. In: C. Pomerance, M. Rassias (eds.),

*VTK Journal.* (My Intel STS project from high school.)
- Analytic number theory and quadratic reciprocity.
*Harvard College Mathematics Review.*

(I once thought I'd discovered a new and "purely analytic" proof of quadratic reciprocity. In fact the argument was known to Dirichlet! So I turned it into a little expository article.

See the fun!! section for a non-expository version, which amounts to a few lines.)

### "Book":

- (with Dennis Gaitsgory and Gurbir Dhillon) Math 123 (= Algebra II) notes.
- (with Dennis Gaitsgory) Math 122 (= Algebra I) notes.

fun!!

My mathematical hero was sure "analytic number theory is * not * number theory"! :)

solve for x!

(you may assume char. ≠ 2.)

article XXXIII!
