Poisson imitators and sieve theory

Zarathustra Brady (MIT)

Abstract: I'll describe how sieve theory is actually a question about probability distributions whose low moments agree with the low moments of Poisson distributions. In particular, we can derive Selberg’s “parity problem” without using properties of the Möbius function or the Liouville function - instead, we use the fact that the alternating group forms a subgroup of the symmetric group.
