Power sums of polynomials:  We will describe various results and conjectures on different aspects of the study of power sums of polynomials, and resulting applications to topics such as (i) zero distribution of zeta functions, (ii) multizeta relations and non-relations, (iii)variations of p-ranks of cyclotomic Jacobians, (iv)symmetries in distribution of primes
