Abstract: The classical prime number theorem states that the number of primes less than x is asymptotic to x/log x as x tends to infinity.  This result is obtained by studying the Riemann zeta function.  In this talk I will discuss generalizations of the prime number theorem in the case where the Riemann zeta function is replaced by higher rank L-functions on GL(n) with n > 1.
