    Counting Galois extensions of number fields.

    Friday September 21, 12-1pm, Carslaw 375.

    We present a conjecture on the aymptotics of the counting function for number fields with given Galois group and bounded dscriminant. We explain recent results (joint with Gunter Malle) which prove this conjecture for nilpotent groups and some further classes of groups.
