The idea that of factorization, conventional within the traditional method of complete numbers that may be written as a distinct made from best numbers, performs a primary position in glossy arithmetic and its functions. This exposition of the vintage idea leads the reader to an figuring out of the present wisdom of the topic and its connections to different mathematical recommendations, for instance in algebraic quantity conception.
Quantity conception, spectral geometry, and fractal geometry are interlinked during this research of the vibrations of fractal strings, that's, one-dimensional drums with fractal boundary. The Riemann speculation is given a ordinary geometric reformulation in context of vibrating fractal strings, and the e-book deals specific formulation prolonged to use to the geometric, spectral and dynamic zeta capabilities linked to a fractal.
This quantity incorporates a number of study and survey papers written by way of one of the most eminent mathematicians within the overseas neighborhood and is devoted to Helmut Maier, whose personal learn has been groundbreaking and deeply influential to the sector. particular emphasis is given to themes concerning exponential and trigonometric sums and their habit briefly durations, anatomy of integers and cyclotomic polynomials, small gaps in sequences of sifted major numbers, oscillation theorems for primes in mathematics progressions, inequalities on the topic of the distribution of primes briefly durations, the Möbius functionality, Euler’s totient functionality, the Riemann zeta functionality and the Riemann speculation.
