Conrey, Farmer and Zirnbauer formulated the ratios conjectures, which give asymptotic formulas for the ratios of products of shifted L-functions from some family. They have many corollaries to other problems in arithmetic statistics, such as the computation of various moments or the distribution of zeros in a family of L-functions.

During the talk, we will show how to use multiple Dirichlet series to prove the conjectures in the family of real Dirichlet L-functions for some range of the shifts. The talk will be accessible even to those with little background in analytic number theory.
