About

Henry Twiss

Mathematics Undergraduate – University of Minnesota

The Modular Perspective started as a place to put down my mathematical thoughts. It has expanded to include an archieve of notes, a list of text resources, and an ever-expaning collection of interesting exercises. A large part of mathematics is learning about how to present and write about it; this blog has helped (and still does help) me with devloping these skills.

I am a third year mathematics major at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. My primary interests are in analytic and algebraic number theory. I am currently researching asymptotics of moments of Dirichlet L-functions under professor Adrian Diaconu. We are studying the refinment of a moment conjecture put forth by Conrey, Farmer, Keating, Rubinstein, and Snaith in 2005 using infinite Kac-Moody Lie algebras and analytic methods. An overview of my current work is available below.

I am glad to annouce that I have accepted a position at the University of Minnesota’s REU in algebra, combinatorics, and representation theory for summer 2020.

I am a 2020 Goldwater scholar.
