Philosophy behind Zhang's 2022 preprint on the Landau–Siegel zero

Now that a week has passed since Zhang posted his preprint Discrete mean estimates and the Landau–Siegel zero on the arXiv, I'm wondering if someone can give a high-level overview of his strategy. In ...

Is every positive integer the rank of an elliptic curve over some number field?

For every positive integer $n$, is there some number field $K$ and elliptic curve $E/K$ such that $E(K)$ has rank $n$? It's easy to show that the set of such $n$ is unbounded. But can one show that ...

Finiteness of etale cohomology for arithmetic schemes

By an arithmetic scheme I mean a finite type flat regular integral scheme over $\mathrm{Spec} \, \mathbb{Z}$. Let $X$ be an arithmetic scheme. Then is $H_{et}^2(X,\mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z})$ finite ...

Looking for an effective irrationality measure of $\pi$

Most standard summaries of the literature on irrationality measure simply say, e.g., that $$\left| \pi - \frac{p}{q}\right| > \frac{1}{q^{7.6063}}$$ for all sufficiently large $q$, without giving ...
