Spring 2016:  Brandon Alberts is computing the moments of the distribution of unramified G-extensions of imaginary quadratic fields for various G, verifying a conjecture of Melanie Wood.

Summer 2016:  Brandon Alberts has been working on his paper. He participated in the RTG lunch on Mondays, and some RTG funds went to his trip to the Arizona winter school and his trip to Warwick for a conference on Cohen-Lenstra Heuristics and Arithmetic statistics.

Fall 2016: Brandon Alberts posted two papers to the ArXiV. The first paper is titled "Cohen-Lenstra Moments for Some Nonabelian Groups", which he has been working on for the past year. The second paper written collaboratively with Jack Klys is titled "The Distribution of H_8-extensions of Quadratic Fields". He also used some RTG funds to attend and present the results of the first paper at the Quebec-Maine number theory conference.
