2. Function fields

    1. Problem 2.1.

      [S. Gonek] Develop a heuristic for moments of L-functions over function fields. Can one carry out the analogous Conrey-Keating calculation for high moments (fixed $q$, large degree $g$)?
        1. Remark. For this problem, it may be easier to start with low moments first.
            • Problem 2.2.

              [H. Iwaniec] Consider a family of elliptic curves with a known rational point. Evaluate moments of $L$-functions in this family at certain points. How does the fixed rational point analytically affect calculations? E.g. $y^2=x^3+ax+b^2$ with $a,b$ integers having $|a|,|b|\leq X$ (or in $\mathbb{F}_q[t]$).
                • Problem 2.3.

                  [P. Humphries] Develop a heuristic for moments of L-functions of automorphic forms over function fields. What are families in this context?
                    • Problem 2.4.

                      [S. Gonek and J. Keating] Analyze Alexandra Florea’s formula for $V$ not equal to a square.
                        • Problem 2.5.

                          [S. Gonek and J. Keating] Evaluate moments of ratios of $L$-functions over function fields.
