Title: An Intro to Riemann-Hilbert Problems 

Abstract: The talk is aimed to be a brief introduction to Riemann-Hilbert Problems
(RHPs) and their applications.  First, I’ll talk about how differential equations can be
reframed as RHPs and what’s gained from this.  Then, I’ll talk about how RHPs can be
used to describe orthogonal polynomials.  Finally, I’ll discuss RHPs in the context of
difference equations.  If time permits, I’ll also talk about some of the complex
analysis techniques used in RHP theory.
