Abstract: There is an analogy between Z, the ring of integers, and F_q[t],
the ring of polynomials over a finite field with q elements.
We will demonstrate this analogy through the following problem
about prime numbers in arithmetic progression:
 
Let x>0 and d a modulus. The Prime Number Theorem for arithmetic
progressions
asserts that if x is sufficiently large and if d is fixed, then the primes
p<x equi-distribute amongst the arithmetic progressions p = a(mod d), where
gcd(a,d)=1. In many applications it is crucial to allow d to grow with x, so
the problem `how big can d be so that equi-distribution is still satisfied'
is naturally raised. (Under the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis one can take
d^(2+delta)<x, and it is conjectured that we can take d^(1+delta)<x.)
 
This talk is based on a joint work with Efrat Bank and Lior Rosenzweig.
