Organisers: James McKee

This workshop, at the Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol, UK, sponsored by the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, covered a wide range of problems in number theory, with a unifying theme of polynomials.

Roger Baker (Brigham Young): Quadratic polynomials modulo one
Marie Jose Bertin (Paris): Mahler measure from number theory to geometry
Frits Beukers (Utrecht): Calculation of rational J-maps
Peter Borwein (Simon Fraser): Some highly computational problems somewhere between
