Counting Field Extensions with Bounded Discriminant

Abstract:In this talk, I will talk about the problem of counting fields with bounded discriminant. After introducing the problem and surveying the important related results, I will talk about its historical connection with Fermat’s Last Theorem, and its important place in the research in number theory. I will conclude the talk with a recent result and the sketch of its proof.
