Title: Geometric configurations of primes
Abstract: We'll explain how some particularly recalcitrant problems in number theory can be formulated geometrically. In particular the talk will explain how certain configurations of integers, "Lenstra-Hurwitz cliques" can be used to attack the class number one problem.
