Abstract
In the first part of the talk we are going to build up some intuition about limit-periodic functions and I will explain why they are the 'simplest' class of arithmetic functions appearing in analytic number theory. In the second part, I will give an equivalent description of 'limit-periodicity' by using exponential sums and explain how this property allows us to solve 'twin-prime'-like problems by the circle method.
