More than six months late, but here are notes from the combinatorial nullsetllensatz talk I gave at the student colloquium at MIT. This was also my term paper for 18.434, ``Seminar in Theoretical Computer Science''. 1. Introducing the choice number One of the most fundamental problems in graph theory is that of a graph coloring,… Continue reading Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and List Coloring

## Vinogradov’s Three-Prime Theorem (with Sammy Luo and Ryan Alweiss)

This was my final paper for 18.099, seminar in discrete analysis, jointly with Sammy Luo and Ryan Alweiss. We prove that every sufficiently large odd integer can be written as the sum of three primes, conditioned on a strong form of the prime number theorem. 1. Introduction In this paper, we prove the following result:… Continue reading Vinogradov’s Three-Prime Theorem (with Sammy Luo and Ryan Alweiss)

## Transferring

Apparently even people on Quora want to know why I transferred from Harvard to MIT. Since I've been asked this question way too many times, I guess I should give an answer, once and for all. There were plenty of reasons (and anti-reasons). I should say some anti-reasons first to give due credit -- the… Continue reading Transferring
