15th Annual Automorphic Forms workshop
24-29 March 2001, American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), Palo Alto, CA
THE 15TH ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON AUTOMORPHIC FORMS AND RELATED TOPICS List of Participants Preliminary schedule of talks WHERE: American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), Palo Alto, CA ARRIVAL DATE: Saturday, 24 March 2001 DEPARTURE DATE: Thursday, 29 March 2001 ORGANIZER: Brian Conrey (conrey@aimath.org) DESCRIPTION: Over the last 14 years, the Annual Workshop has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from new PhD's to well established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement; for accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as a forum for exchanging ideas. The atmosphere is always friendly, never confrontational. Topics include, among others, classical theory of automorphic forms, Siegel modular forms and integral quadratic forms. GENERAL INFORMATION: As usual, there is a $25 registration fee. This money will be used to buy snacks, like fresh bagels, fruit, fresh juice, coffee and tea (and halfhalf) at breakfast time, as well as lighter snacks, coffee and tea throughout the day. In addition, your registration fee pays for your own conference coffee mug (out of which you must drink the available liquids), and for the conference party. Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk (typically, 20, 40 or 60 minutes in length -- your choice). In March, the weather in Palo Alto is usually pretty good, but you can expect some rain. TRANSPORTATION: Palo Alto is located equidistant from San Jose International Airport (SJC) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). AIM is about 4 blocks away from the California Ave stop on Cal Train. Both airports have free shuttles to and from Cal Train Stations (more details) . ACCOMODATIONS: You need to make your own hotel reservation. I recommend Hotel California, but they have a very limited number of spots. (List of hotels near to AIM with approximate prices.) FUNDING: There may be some funding available. If you would like to apply for funding, please send me the following information by 10 January, 2001: Your name, institution, position, airfare. WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW: If you think you will be attending this workshop, you should send e-mail to Brian Conrey, at conrey@aimath.org to say that you expect to attend. You are encouraged to say whether you will be speaking, and if so, for how long.
Workshop on L-functions and Random Matrices
May 14-18, 2001, American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California.
WORKSHOP ON L-FUNCTIONS AND RANDOM MATRICES WHERE: American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), Palo Alto, CA DATES: Monday, May 14 - Friday, May 18, 2001 ORGANIZER: Brian Conrey (conrey@aimath.org) List of Participants Some open problems Schedule of talks Hotels where everyone is staying DESCRIPTION: In 1974, H. Montgomery found the first indication of a connection between the distribution of the zeros of the Riemann zeta-function and the distribution of the eigenvalues of random matrices. Random matrices had been studied by statisticians beginning in the 1930s and Mathematical Physicists starting in the 1950s. In 1981, numerical calculations by A. Odlyzko of some statistics of the zeros of the Riemann zeta-function led to remarkable graphs illustrating the connection that Montgomery predicted. Recent work by many authors, has led to several interesting developments including the study of low lying zeros of families of L-functions and conjectures for mean-values of L-functions running in a family. The purpose of this workshop is to consider the future development of this field, with a focus on understanding the goals of the subject, the limitations, and how to attack the important unsolved problems. PARTICIPATION: There is a limited amount of space for participants for this workshop. If you would like to attend and can make a case that your participation would be of benefit to your research program, please contact Brian Conrey (conrey@aimath.org).

Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture
Special semester Princeton University, NJ, USA; Fall 2003.
Special Semester on the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture Special semester on the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture Princeton University, Fall 2003 In Fall 2003, Princeton will host a special semester devoted to the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. Henri Darmon, Ravi Ramakrishna, and Chris Skinner are visiting the department; Darmon and Skinner will give semester-long seminars (see descriptions below) and Andrew Wiles will give a graduate course. From 5-8 November there will be an AIM workshop at Princeton detailing recent progress on topics related to B-S-D, organized by Andrew Wiles, Henri Darmon, Jordan Ellenberg, and Chris Skinner. Tentative schedule of lectures: 5 Nov 10:30 Andrew Wiles: Introduction 11:30 Shin-ichi Kobayashi: "Iwasawa theory for elliptic curves at supersingular primes." 2:30 Robert Pollack: "The main conjecture for CM elliptic curves at supersingular primes." 4:00 Henri Darmon: "Stark-Heegner points and Kronecker's solution to Pell's equation." 6 Nov 10:00 Chris Skinner: "L-values for GL(2) and an Eisenstein ideal for GU(2,2)." 11:30 Eric Urban: "On the main conjecture for ordinary elliptic curves." 2:30 Vinayak Vatsal: "Special values of Rankin L-functions." 4:00 Shou-Wu Zhang: "On the Gross-Zagier formula." 7 Nov 10:00 Douglas Ulmer: "What is known over function fields." 11:30 Susan Howson: "Non-abelian Iwasawa theory with applications to the arithmetic of elliptic curves." 2:30 Keith Conrad: "Partial Euler products on the critical line." 4:00 Emmanuel Kowalski: "Variation of the rank and related invariants in families of elliptic curves." 8 Nov 10:00 Noam Elkies: "Heegner point constructions for curves x^3 + y^3 = k." 11:30 William Stein: "Connections between the visibility of Shafarevich-Tate groups and the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture." All talks will take place at Taplin Auditorium in Fine Hall (Princeton Math Department.) The conference will begin on the morning of 5 Nov and conclude with lunch on 8 Nov. Other confirmed participants include A.Agashe, M. Bertolini, P. Green, M. Harris, B. Howard, A.Iovita, M. Kurihara, A.Logan, L. Merel, K. Rubin, D. Savitt, O. Venjakob, T. Weston. The most convenient airport to Princeton is Newark (EWR). More detailed information about traveling to Princeton can be found here . Many visitors are staying at the Holiday Inn, from which a free shuttle will take you to the conference each morning and to which it will return you in the evening; if you're interested in staying there, please e-mail Scott Kenney at skenney@math.princeton.edu to assure yourself of the conference rate. Funding may be offered, subject to availability. Skinner's Seminar: L-values and orders of Selmer groups Weds, 3-4:30 pm, Fine 1201 starting 1 Oct In this seminar, I will explain an approach to proving the Main Conjecture of Iwasawa Theory for elliptic curves and for elliptic modular forms in general. This conjecture relates the p-adic properties of the values L(E,\chi,1), E an elliptic curve with multiplicative or ordinary reduction at p and \chi a character of p-power conductor, to those of the p-part of certain Selmer groups (Galois cohomology groups) attached to E. This approach makes use of the arithmetic of Eisenstein series and p-adic modular forms for the unitary group U(2,2) and of Galois representations associated to cuspforms for this group. The results obtained through this approach, when combined with work of Kato and assuming some expected properties of the Galois representations, prove many instances of the Main Conjecture. I will assume familiarity with the theory of elliptic modular forms and some acquaintance with automorphic forms on higher rank unitary groups* (such as Hermitian modular forms) from both the classical and adelic points of view. *As discussed in Shimura's book "Euler products and Eisenstein series," for example. Darmon's seminar: Rational Points on Modular Elliptic Curves Thursday, 1-2:30 pm, Fine 801 Starting 25 Sep The goal of this seminar is to discuss the notion of Heegner points on modular elliptic curves as well as certain conjectural variants, and the information they provide on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. Topics to be covered (roughly in chronological order) will include: 1. Classical Heegner points attached to imaginary quadratic fields. 2. Proof of Kolyvagin's theorem and its application to the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. 3. The rudiments of rigid analysis and p-adic uniformisation. 4. The notion of "Stark-Heegner" points introduced in [1]. 5. Relation with p-adic L-functions attached to Hida families. 6. A proof of some cases of the main conjecture of [1] (work in progress with M. Bertolini). References: [1] H. Darmon. Integration on ${\cal H}_p\times{\cal H}$ and arithmetic applications. Annals of Mathematics 154 (2001) 589-639. [2] H. Darmon.

West Coast Number Theory Conference 2003
Asilomar Conference Center, Monterey (Pacific Grove) CA, USA; 17--21 December 2003.
West Coast Number Theory Conference 2003 December 17 (Evening Banquet) through December 21st (Lunch) Asilomar Conference Center in Monterey (Pacific Grove), California 1. Contact Information 2. How to Register 3. Directions to Asilomar 4. Financial Support (WE'RE FUNDED!!!) 5. Problem Sets 6. Program from 2001 7. Format of the Conference 8. Service and Thanks 9. Asilomar's Webpage 1. Contact Information: Organizer: Bart Goddard 2508 Spruceleaf Circle Austin, TX 78757 goddardb@newsguy.com Personal Note: I've terminated my relationship with Concordia University at Austin, so I'm using my personal contact information to organize this conference. I am reluctant to put my home phone on this site, however, and I'm sorry if that creates an inconvenience for anyone. My number is NOT unlisted, and conferees are welcome to brave both the trials of Directory Assistance and the low probability that my offspring won't be tying up the line if they feel a telephone conversation is necessary. Voicemail exists. 2. How to register: A. Hurry! We do seem to be competing (somewhat fiercely) with other groups at Asilomar for space. Rooms are on a first come basis and seem to be going fast. My guess is that you need to get your reservation in by Sept. 15th to be comfortable. But I'm also sure that later dates will still get you a room on grounds. Many people stay off grounds in local motels. It would help me if those people would also hurry and register too, since Asilomar is hounding me for accurate head counts already. B. If you are planning on staying on grounds, print this Word document , fill it out and send it with your payment directly to Asilomar (note that this includes four nights and all meals). Note that vegetarian meals and other dietary options are available. C. Download and print this Word document and send it with your registration fee to me. Please note that this means that you need to write two checks and send them to two different places. Asilomar takes credit cards, but I do not. A couple of notes: In the past, we've had enough spouses staying on grounds and few enough conferees staying off grounds that things have balanced out. But the last two times at Asilomar, there have been uncomfortable situations in which the number of chairs I've needed in the meeting room has exceeded the number of beds rented, which raises the management's eyebrows. As I explained at the business meeting two years ago, off-grounds attendees (number theorists, but not spouses, etc.) will have to start paying the daily use fee, which is $8 per day, no matter how short the day is. So for a person attending all of the conference and staying off grounds, I've added a $40 charge to my registration form. If you will not be there for the entire 5 days then feel free to make your own adjustment to this fee, by pro-rating for the number of days you'll be present. (Attending the banquet counts as a day.) The upside to the daily use fee is that it buys off grounds people the right to eat in the Asilomar dining hall. (Non-number theorists would have to pay the fee in order to eat at the dining hall.) Having paid the fee, prices for meals are: (Adult) Breakfast: $7.16, Lunch $9.72, Dinner $15.54 (Child 3-12 years old) Breakfast: $6.05, Lunch $6.94, Dinner $12.22, all including tax. A non-number theorist staying off grounds needs to pay the fee only on days that he eats in the dining hall. Because we're trying to save the "historic" rooms for those on a budget, we're not allowing those rooms to be rented for single occupancy. So if you want the luxury of a single room, then you have to also indulge yourself the luxury of a "standard" room. (We're really thinking of saving the historic rooms for graduate students, but it's first come, first served.) 3. How to get there. By Air: Monterey has an airport serviced by major airlines. Taxis, rental cars and public transportation are available from there to the Asilomar Conference Grounds. Driving directions and maps are avialable on Asilomar's website: Directions Peter Montgomery, our resident expert on California's train system, has provided these directions for getting to Asilomar without driving: Those coming from San Francisco and San Jose airports can take the Monterey-Salinas Airbus to Monterey Transit Plaza in downtown Monterey for $30. Reservations are recommended. Greyhound also serves Monterey Transit Plaza (N.B. this is separate from the Monterey Greyhound station). Amtrak has connecting buses to Salinas and San Jose Amtrak stations. Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) route A connects Monterey Transit Plaza to the Asilomar entrance (and to Monterey Aquarium) for $1.75. MST route 21 serves Monterey airport but does not run on Sunday. 4. Support: To apply for funding, download this Word document, which is two pages and I hope self-explanatory, and follow the directions therein. Hard copies of this document will be available at the conference. If you can get it together and turn all the stuff in to me at the conference, that's A-OK. But I think most folk won't be able to until sometime in January. I'm setting the deadline for applying for funds at January 31st. The sooner we all get our stuff in, the sooner we can disburse the funds. BUT, if someone needs more time, it's easy to push the deadline back, because, heck, it's just me, and I can change it if I want to. So just let me know if you need a few extra days (e.g., your letter writer is out of town or something.) A. WE ARE FUNDED!!! For U.S Citizens, the NSA will support travel, room and board, and registration expenses for conference attendance for graduate students, the unemployed, and junior faculty who do not otherwise have full support. (Two years ago, I was able to spend only half of the grant, which is bad. So I need to stress that junior faculty should not be shy about asking for funds, lest we be in danger of having the amount of support cut. I'm happy to listen to sentences like "OK, I'll apply for support, but if you run out of money, then I should be the one to not get any" and use my own judgement for distribution of funds. So please ask for money.) The amount of the award is $9,850. Usually everyone gets whatever they ask for. In the years we run short, the method of distribution has been to fund everyone at a constant percentage (as far as I know always 90%.) (p.s. I'm going to try to get an advance against the grant this time, in order to avoid the massive delays we had two years ago, which was caused mostly by the NSA and Office of Naval Research having never heard of Concordia. Now they know. Hopefully no graduate students will be eating maccheese until August waiting for checks this time. I think end of March at the latest.) B. The Number Theory Foundation has agreed again to complement the NSA's support by supporting the travel for non-US citizen graduate students who otherwise do not have support. There is usually a cap on the amount of support per person. The amount of the award is $1500. The details about how to divide this money are worked out after the requests come in. The committee and the organizer meet and try to meet the needs in a fair and reasonable way. C. The application procedure for BOTH grants is identical. Just keep all your receipts. There will be a form available at the conference, and downloadable from this site, which will be filled out and mailed to me after you get back home and have your final expenses tallied. Also, we will need a short letter of support from a supervisor (advisor or department head or dean, say) saying that 1. attendance at this conference is a good idea, 2. that there is not other support available OR that the available support is partial and what the extent of that partial support is, and 3. the letter MUST verify the citizenship status of the applicant so that we can pay out of the correct fund. So that's three things: Receipts + form + letter. D. As always, if something's not clear, shoot me an e-mail. 5.

Program from 2001 Conference Here is the Word document listing the speakers and their titles from the 2001 West Coast Number Theory Conference which was held at Asilomar. I make it available to give an idea of the participant list and the wide variety and level of talks one can expect at this conference. (This document may not reflect last minute changes that were made to the program.) 2001 Schedule of Talks 7. Format of the Conference: We will begin with an opening banquet on the evening of Dec. 17 at 6 pm. Attendence at the banquet is optional, and there is an additional surcharge of $8 for the meal (which means that the cost for off-grounds attendees is $23.) After dinner, we will retire to the meeting room, which is currently assigned as Heather (see the map in the directions link), where we'll have a quick meeting where titles are submitted and a schedule of talks is hastily assembled. People who skip the banquet are welcome to meet the rest of us at Heather. Tentatively we'll schedule this meeting for 7:30 pm. (The surcharges for the special entrees for banquets are quite pricy. I'm most likely to choose "Chicken Asilomar" yet again, because it's half the price of the others. I think the idea is more the commeraderie than paying $16 +$8 daily use fee +$15 dinner fee = $39 for a plate of Asilomar's version of smoked salmon. So chicken will be the "meat entree", and there will be a vegetarian option, which is currently listed as "Vegetarian Wellington" involving white beans and fontina cheese. People wanting Kosher or Vegan or other options should contact Asilomar directly.) The length allowed for all talks is usually about 15 minutes, including time for questions. Dec. 18 and 20 will be full days of talks, while Dec. 19 will have talks in the morning, leaving the afternoon for our "afternoon off" for sightseeing and recreation. Dec. 21 will be another half day. Two problem sessions will be scheduled during the conference, where unsolved problems are presented (and Peter Montgomery will proceed to solve them ;-)) The results from previous problem sessions are given below. The second problem session will most likely be on the morning of Dec. 21. An overhead projector is provided for talks. The chalkboards that have been available in the past have been woefully inadequate. If you need anything like computer projection equipment or computers, then it's strictly BYO. I do bring a small supply of blank transparencies and markers, but they get snarfed up quickly by non-self-sufficient attendees. I'll try to get you whatever you need if I have enough lead time, but I recommend that you bring your own stuff, and not rely on my limited resourcefulness. 8. Service and Thanks: I am happy to help in any way. If downloading the forms doesn't work, then I can e-mail or snail mail them. If you know of someone who wants to be added to the e-mail or snail mail list, then please let me know or have them mail me. Corrections and additions to this page are welcome. (And I know they are forthcoming ;-)) Thanks to David Cantor who maintains the wntc.org domain, Lawrence Szu who maintains our mirror site, Gerry Myerson who maintains the problems sets, The Number Theory Foundation, and others who do things that keep things running smoothly.
p-adic Variation of Motives
Banff, Alberta, Canada; 13--18 December 2003.
p-adic variation of motives with the participation of p-adic variation of motives December 13 - 18, 2003 Organizers: Kevin Buzzard (Imperial College), Robert Coleman (UC Berkeley), Matthew Emerton (Northwestern Univ.), Eyal Goren (Univ. McGill) Objectives The workshop will bring together researchers currently investigating the p-adic variation of motives. The goal of the workshop is two-fold: to report on recent progress, and to focus attention on the many open problems that remain in the field. Recent progress. There has been significant progress in the study of p-adic variation of motives in the last year or so, and one goal of the workshop is to report on this progress. Relations with p-adic Hodge theory. The p-adic Galois representations attached to classical motives are potentially semi-stable in the sense of Fontaine, and so it is quite reasonable to hope for relations between Fontaine's theory and the theory of p-adic variation of motives. Recently concrete progress has been made in establishing this connection.Iovita has associated a Fontaine-Dieudonn\'ee module to a Hida family and shown that it has rank one over the parameter space. More generally, Kisin has made an extensive analysis of the p-adic Hodge theory of the family of Galois representations attached to Coleman's finite-slope families. As a consequence, he has verified the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture for such Galois representations: if the Galois representation occurring in such a family is potentially semi-stable at p then it arises from a classical modular form. Slopes of modular forms. Buzzard has extensive computational evidence suggesting some remarkable patterns in the variations of slopes of classical modular forms. Together with Frank Calegari he has proven them in a special case. More precisely, they have shown that if m\ge 0 and if n is sufficiently large then for any k 0 such that 2^n|k, the first few 2-adic slopes of weight k forms on \Gamma_0(2) are equal to 1+2\,\ord_2((3n)! n!), each slope occurring with multiplicity one. Gouvea has also performed extensive computations of slopes, and likewise has discovered suprising and so-far unexplained phenomena. p-adic deformations of automorphic forms. One approach to constructing a family of p-motives containing a given classical motive is to first construct a p-adic analytic deformation of a corresponding automorphic form, and then to construct an accompanying deformation of the p-adic Galois representation attached to the given motive. Indeed, this was the approach used by Hida in order to deform the motives attached to ordinary modular forms, and by Coleman and Mazur in order to deform the motives attached to finite-slope modular forms. Recently, Kassaei has developed a theory of overconvergent p-adic automorphic forms attached to certain quaternion algebras, which allows him to construct p-adic analytic families of finite slope eigenforms for these quaternion algebras. As with Coleman's construction of families of modular eigenforms of finite slope, his approach depends on exploiting the p-adic geometry of the appropriate Shimura curve, using techniques of rigid analysis. Ash and Stevens have developed another approach to interpolating finite slope automorphic forms on GL_n, using cohomological methods. More precisely, they are able to find p-adic analytic families of group cohomology classes that are finite-slope eigenclasses for an appropriate Hecke operator at p. Emerton has initiated yet another approach to the problem of p-adically interpolating automorphic forms, which uses methods from the emerging theory of locally p-adic analytic representations of p-adic reductive groups. Applying his results to the representations constructed out of the cohomology of congruence subgroups, he is again able to construct p-adic analytic families of finite slope eigenclasses. When the reductive group in question gives rise to a Shimura variety, the functorial nature of his approach allows him to also construct corresponding families of Galois representations. p-adic variation over finite fields. Wan has recently established Dwork's conjecture on the meromorphicity of the fixed slope parts of the L-function attached to families of varieties defined over a finite field. Overconvergence and p-adic limiting techniques play a key role in the proof. Open problems. There are many fundamental open questions related to the p-adic variation of motives, and a second goal of the workshop is to focus the attention of experts on these problems, and develop some lines of attack. Some of the most pressing open questions are: Can one establish the existence of the universal family (or any non-trivial family) of p-motives containing a given classical motive? What is the geometric nature of this universal family? How are the classical motives situated in this universal family? Can one intrinsically characterize those p-adic Galois representations which are p-motives belonging to such a deformation space (for example, in terms of their p-adic Hodge theory)? How should one formulate the ``main conjecture of Iwasawa theory'' for a general family of p-motives? In the case of the eigencurve, the computations of Buzzard provide a hint as to the answer to the second of these questions, and the results of Kisin go a long way to suggesting an answer to the fourth. The representation-theoretic methods of Emerton provides a new point of view on the first and third. It seems likely that before we can fully understand the form that a ``main conjecture'' should take, it will be crucial to understand more closely the relationship between the variation of p-motives and p-adic Hodge theory. By bringing together those people who are investigating these and related questions, and sharing our knowledge of the most current developments and techniques available in the field, the workshop should lead to a significant improvement in our understanding of all three of these questions, and the many other important open questions in the field. Mathematical implications of the workshop. Each improvement in our understanding of the p-adic variation of motives has led to concrete developments in number theory and arithmetic geometry. For example, Hida's theory provided a crucial tool in Greenberg and Stevens' proof of the elliptic curve case of the Mazur-Tate-Teitelbaum conjecture on the L-invariant. As mentioned above, it also led to Mazur's theory of deformations of Galois representations. This theory in turn was fundamental to Taylor and Wiles' proof of Fermat's last theorem, as well as to recent progress of Buzzard, Dickinson, Shepherd-Barron and Taylor on the Artin conjecture. More recently, Coleman's construction of one parameter families of non-ordinary finite-slope eigenforms has been used by Stevens to prove the general case of Mazur-Tate-Teitelbaum conjecture, and (as mentioned as above) by Kisin to establish cases of the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture. In light of this history, we expect that further developments in the theory of p-adic variation will have similarly far-reaching consequences for number theory as a whole. The proposed workshop would play a pivotal role in stimulating such developments. Confirmed Participants Programme Videos Click image for larger photo. 2005 Banff International Research Station

Current trends in arithmetic geometry and number theory with the participation of Current trends in arithmetic geometry and number theory August 16 - 21, 2003 Organizers: Imin Chen (SFU), Brian Conrad (Univ. Michigan Ann Arbor), Eyal Goren (McGill Univ.), Adrian Iovita (Univ. Washington), Chris Skinner (Univ. Michigan Ann Arbor), Nike Vatsal (UBC) Objectives Many recent developments in number theory have relied crucially on the use of p-adic methods. These arise in many forms, such as via p-adic representation theory, p-adic L-functions, and p-adic geometry. This workshop will bring together both experts and newcomers to these areas of number theory. There will be two components to the workshop: Three lectures per day on recent developments in the field (a total of 12 lectures), consisting of various mathematicians reporting on their own work. A series of instructional lectures on $\Phi$-$\Gamma$ modules, period rings, and their applications. These lectures will be aimed at those who are not specialists in these fields, and this series will consist of 2 lectures per day (a total of 8 lectures). These will be given by Brian Conrad, Laurent Berger, Adrian Iovita, and others. The specialists in attendance are welcome to use this time for collaboration, research, and or hiking.

Our purpose is to concentrate on the geometric and analytic aspects of the subject. These have far-reaching applications in classical number theory. The Langlands-Shahidi method and the converse theorem of Cogdell-Piatetski-Shapiro have seen exciting new developments recently. These include new cases of functoriality, as well as analytic continuation of symmetric power L-functions. The work of Kim-Shahidi will be one of the central themes of the program. The analytic theory of L-functions and its applications has also seen many advances in recent years. We hope to cover some aspects of these, especially those connected with the analyticity of symmetric power L-functions as well as those of Hasse-Weil zeta functions. An important problem is to express the Hasse-Weil zeta function of a Shimura variety in terms of automorphic L-functions. Here in order to define the local factors not just at primes of good reduction, we need to study the variety at the finite set of primes of bad reduction. Such a description would allow one to apply the aforementioned progress in L-functions to the study of deep arithmetic properties of these varieties. One of the major remaining obstacles to proving such a description is the so-called "fundamental lemma'' -- a conjecture in local harmonic analysis that asserts the equality of certain orbital integrals on a p-adic group and on a related (endoscopic) group. We plan to review recent work of Goresky-Kottwitz-MacPherson and others which gives a geometric approach to this problem. Coxeter Lecture Series March 10, 11, 12, 2003, 3:30 pm Stephen S.

The Many Aspects of Mahler's Measure
Banff International Research Station, Alberta, Canada; 26 April -- 1 May 2003.
The many aspects of Mahler's measure with the participation of The many aspects of Mahler's measure April 26 - May 01, 2003 Organizers: David Boyd (UBC), Doug Lind (Univ. Washington), Fernando Rodriguez Villegas (Univ. Texas at Austin), Christopher Deninger (Univ. Meunster) Objectives The purpose of the workshop will be to explore the many apparently different ways in which Mahler's measure appears in different areas of Mathematics. For this purpose, we are bringing together experts specializing in many different fields: dynamical systems, K-theory, number theory and topology, with the hope that common threads will emerge from the interaction between the participants. The logarithm of Mahler's measure for one variable polynomials is a quantity that occurs naturally in many problems as an entropy or grown rate. For example, it occured in Lehmer's investigation of certain cyclotomic functions and led him to ask his famous question now known as Lehmer's conjecture. In spite of fundamental work by Smyth, Dobrowolski and others on this conjecture, it has not yet been proved. Mahler's measure for polynomials in many variables was introduced by him as a device to provide a simple proof of Gelfond's inequality for the product of polynomials in many variables. It has turned out to have a much more fundamental signifigance. The starting point was the proof in the late 1970's that the Mahler measure of a several variable polynomial is the limit of the Mahler measure of one variable polynomials. The limit theorem was used by Lind, Schmidt and Ward in their proof that the logarithmic Mahler measure is the entropy of a Z^d action. Recently Deninger has shown that the Mahler measure of a many variable polynomial is related to Beilinson's higher regulators. Since then Boyd, Rodriguez-Villegas and others have explored this connection with K-theory. Some of these results can be regarded as verifications of conjectures of Kontsevich and Zagier in their general theory of periods. In another direction, connections have been found between the Mahler measure of certain two variable polynomials called A-polynomials and invariants of hyperbolic 3-manifolds such as the volume and Borel regulator. There is an intriguing conjecture of Chinburg about realizing special values of Dirichlet L-functions as logarithmic Mahler measures that seems to have a close connection to the study of the A-polynomials of arithmetic hyperbolic manifolds. We hope that most participants will give a lecture on recent work. Since the main purpose of the workshop is the interaction between individuals in different fields, we hope that the lecturers will not assume too much specialized background but will pitch their lectures to a general educated mathematical audience. In order to facilitate communication, there will be ample time for discussion which we hope will be enhanced by the beautiful setting of the workshop.

Rational and Integral Points on Higher-dimensional Varieties
American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, CA, USA; 11--20 December 2002. On-line registration.
ARCC Workshop: Rational and integral points on higher-dimensional varieties Rational and integral points on higher-dimensional varieties December 11-20, 2002 at the American Institute of Mathematics , Palo Alto, California organized by Bjorn Poonen and Yuri Tschinkel This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF , will be devoted to the study of rational and integral points on algebraic varieties, primarily those of dimension at least two. We are bringing together researchers in algebraic geometry, diophantine approximation, cohomological methods (e.g. the Brauer-Manin obstruction, universal torsors), analytic methods (e.g. the circle method), and algorithmic arithmetic geometry. We hope especially to facilitate communication between researchers studying theoretical aspects and those with a more computational bent. The main questions to be addressed concern existence of points, distribution of points in various topologies, and distribution with respect to heights. The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These should be specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop itself. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and there will be ample time between talks for discussions and for work to be done. Participants include C.L.Basile, F.Bogomolov, T.Browning, L.Caporaso, A.Chambert-Loir, J.-L.Colliot-Thlne, P.Corn, C.David, J.Ellenberg, D.Harari, B.Hassett, R.Heath-Brown, J.Johnson(tentative), A.Kresch, K.Lauter, Y.Manin(tentative), G.Matthews, B.Mazur, W.McCallum, E.Peyre, G.Rmond, F.Rodriguez-Villegas, V.Rotger, P.Salberger, P.Sarnak, A.Shlapentokh, A.Skorobogatov, W.Stein, M.Stoll, P.Swinnerton-Dyer, R.Takloo-Bighash, R.vanLuijk, A.Venkatesh, P.Vojta, J.F.Voloch, O.Wittenberg, T.Wooley, and N.Yui.

Talca is a small city in the Central Valley of Chile about 260 km south of Santiago. Saturday morning the participants will travel to Pucon to resume the conference there on monday. (transportation provided). Organizing Committee Ricardo Baeza (U. de Talca) Bill Jacob (UCSB) John S. Hsia (Ohio State) Alexander Prestel (U. Konstanz) Conference Schedule: The conference opens (Talca) Wednesday evening December 11 and closes (Pucon) Wednesday morning December 18. As most international flights to Chile arrive in Santiago during the morning, participants should plan on a December 11 arrival (or earlier). This will allow for an arrival Talca by mid day with an opportunity to rest. A welcome dinner will be held Thursday evening, with talks beginning on Thursday morning. The conference will stop Saturday and Sunday. Formal sessions will resume in Pucon on Monday and Tuesday. A closing session will be held Wednesday morning December 18, allowing ample time for a return to Santiago (most international flights leave in the evening.) If possible, plan to arrive early or stay longer, as Chile has many exciting opportunities for a summer holiday this time of year. Participants: To see a partial list of participants, click here . Registration: An on-line registration form is provided for the convenience of the participants.(currently disable) Lodging: We expect that most participants will stay in a couple of Hotel's at down town Talca. The room rate is about US$ 50 per night. The number of rooms is limited, so it is important to register early. Please contact the local organizers if you need any assitance. Financial support: At this moment, we are able to provide financial support just for invited participants. Conference fee: A conference fee of US$50 (US$35 for graduates students) for non invited participants should be paid upon arrival to Universidad de Talca. Proceedings: It is intended to publish the proceedings of the conference. Getting to Talca: We have made arrangements to have a bus waiting for the incomming participants at the airport. We expect one bus to leave the airport by 11:00 AM and a van later on. Thus we encourage you to give us your arrival time in advance, so we can schedule more accurately the buses departures. If you are not able to get on any of these buses, we advise you to do the following: Upon arrival to Santiago's International airport, take a shuttle bus, "Tur Bus" which will get you to their own bus station and once in there walk a few steps and take a bus to Talca. (The same company operates both routes.) Once in Talca's bus station take a taxi to "Hotel Plaza" about $2000 (Chilean pesos) Further information: All inquiries should be addressed to the conference e-mail address: qfconference@inst-mat.utalca.cl Local Organizers: R.

Explicit Algebraic Number Theory
Lorentz Center, Leiden, the Netherlands; 23 September -- 2 October 2002.
Explicit algebraic number theory September 23 - October 2, 2002 Lorentz Center , Leiden Instructional part (`Stieltjesweek'): September 23 - 26 Organizers: H.W. Lenstra , P. Stevenhagen NWO-OTKA workshop: September 27 - Oct 2 Organizers: P. Stevenhagen , R. Tijdeman Subject The title Explicit algebraic number theory is borrowed from the series of Oberwolfach meetings on Explicit methods in number theory. Those meetings are characterized by a lively interaction between abstract and advanced arithmetic theories on the one hand and concrete and elementary questions on the other. The spirit of the present workshop, which consists of 4 instructional days and 4 days of talks by (invited) participants, is similar, but within the smaller compass of algebraic number theory. Instructional part The instructional part emphasizes problems that are inspired by questions from other areas of mathematics, including elementary and algorithmic number theory, arithmetic algebraic geometry, and computer algebra. The advanced techniques from algebraic number theory that apply to these problems include class field theory, infinite Galois theory, and the theory of quadratic forms. The purpose of this part is to impart a working knowledge of these theories to the participants, to provide ample illustrations of their use, and to formulate several open problems that may be approachable by means of the same techniques. Prerequisites: basic algebra, number theory, and point set topology, including Galois theory, algebraic number theory and a knowledge of p-adic numbers. Lecturers: Hendrik Lenstra Peter Stevenhagen Bart de Smit Rene Schoof Schedule: lectures in the morning, problems and exercises in the afternoon. See the Stieltjesweek page for details. Please register on-line if you want to attend the instructional part. This will put you on the list of participants . NWO-OTKA workshop The first day of the of the NWO-OTKA workshop (friday) will try to provide illustrations of the material dealt with earlier in the week. Schedule: 4 one hour talks. The schedule on the 3 last days will be more flexible, leaving room for shorter talks and research announcements. We hope that many of our younger researchers will seize the occasion to present something here. Expected topics are explicit computations in algebraic number theory (units, class groups) and (factorization of) polynomials. Invited speakers: Yuri Bilu (Bordeaux) Jean-Marc Couveignes (Toulouse) Bas Edixhoven (Rennes) Jrgen Klners (Kassel) Gnter Lettl (Graz) Michael Pohst (Berlin) Andrzej Schinzel (Warszawa) Ren Schoof (Roma) Schedule Please register on-line if you want to attend the workshop. This will put you on the list of participants . Registered participants are entitled to free coffee and tea. Neither the Stieltjesweek nor the workshop has a registration fee.

XIII Meeting Rencontres Arithmtiques de Caen
Iwasawa Theory of Number Fields and Elliptic Curves. Caen, France; 20--22 June 2002.
XIII Meeting Rencontres Arithmtiques de Caen XIII Rencontres Arithmtiques Caen June 20-22, 2002 Iwasawa Theory of Number Fields and Elliptic Curves Organizing Commitee Bruno Angls( SDAD, Caen) Christian Maire (EPF, Lausanne) Alexis Michel (A2X, Bordeaux 1) Aims of the Meeting History of the Rencontres Miscellaneous About Kenkichi Iwasawa Questions? Comments? Aims of the Meeting The annual meeting of the Rencontres Arithmtiques have been organized for the last thirtheen years at the University of Caen. Each Rencontres is devoted to a specific domain of Number Theory. Thus a different topic every year, yet always in connection with the fields of research developped at the SDAD. This meeting underlines the dynanism of fundamental research in Basse Normandie and more specifically in Caen. With an average of fifty participants and proceedings edited on a regular basis, the Rencontres are now well established in the academic circle and they are doubtless to be reckoned with. The programme attracts specialists in the trade as well as doctoral students. Back to the top of the page Programme This year's topic : Iwasawa Theory for Number Fields and Elliptic Curves.

Explicit Methods in Galois Theory and Arithmetic
Leiden, the Netherlands; 10--14 June 2002.
GTEM Explicit methods in Galois theory and arithmetic Midterm Evaluation Conference, Leiden, June 10-14 2002 general registration program lectures participants In the year 2000 a Research Training Network of the European Community was started under the name Galois Theory and Explicit Methods in Arithmetic . In this project 13 mathematical research institutions will have funding to cooperate for four years in order to advance knowledge in the area of inverse Galois problems, geometric Galois theory, number theory and differential Galois theory. The network sponsors postdoc positions, visiting researchers and network meetings. The Midterm evaluation meeting is organized by the Leiden team . It will take place at the Lorentz Center in the city of Leiden in the Netherlands in the period June 10-14 2002. This meeting will bring the different nodes of the network together to discuss the present state of the project. In lectures of the researchers from the various nodes we will review the results that we have obtained, and we will outline the plans for the next few years 2002-2004. On Friday, the last day of the conference, we will go through the formal "midterm review" process, where people from Brussels will evaluate the progress of the network. This part of the meeting is coordinated by Leila Schneps and Yves Andr. Last update May 27, 2002, 17:21

The remaining talks have been scheduled in half hour blocks. To allow time for breaks and questions, we ask that speakers do not exeed 20 - 25 minutes. BANQUET The conference banquet will be Friday, May 17, at 6:30 pm, on the second floor of the Levis Faculty Center . Banquet tickets had to be reserved in advance, but a few extra tickets may become available due to cancellations. We are using the same caterer as last year, Classic Events Catering , which received rave reviews from conference participants. The banquet will honor Harold Diamond, who for many years has been involved in the organization of this conference and is retiring from of the University of Illinois at the end of this semester. Several of Harold's students, friends, and colleagues will give short speeches at this occasion. The banquet will offer a choice of a red meat entree (8oz strip steak), a white meat entree (grilled breast of duck), and a vegetarian entree (goat-cheese filled portabella mushroom cap). These entrees will be accompanied by rice, grilled and roasted veggies, and a salad of field greens with roasted pears, candied pecans, and crumbled gorgonzola. Desert consists of apple tarts with cinnamon ice cream, (For a more detailed - and mouth-watering - description of these items click here. ) The vegetarian entree is only available to those who had requested so on their registration form. Tickets for the two meat entrees will be distributed at registration on a first-come-first-served basis to those who have reserved a ticket. We have ordered 30 steak and 20 duck entrees, and we hope that most participants will be able to get their first choice of entree. The deadline for banquet reservations has expired; however, we will have a few extra tickets available for those who have not made reservations in advance. MEALS Continental breakfast (coffee, juice, fruit, donuts, bagels, etc.) will be available at 8:00 am on Friday and Saturday in the Commons Room of Altgeld Hall. For those staying at Hendrick House, there is a convenience store located across the street on Lincoln Ave., where coffee, (instant) cappuccino, donuts, sandwiches, and other basic food items can be purchased. Inside the Illini Union, on the first floor, is the Quad Shop, a small convenience store, and the Espresso Royale, a gourmet coffee shop. The campus area houses many restaurants and coffee shops, mostly of the fast food variety. The registration packet will include a list of restaurants in the campus area, and a map. See also the section "Maps and Visitor Information" below for a link to a listing of restaurants in the Champaign-Urbana area. AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION For participants arriving Thursday at the Champaign airport who have notified us of their travel schedule, we will try to provide transportation to the Hendrick House dormitory, the Illini Union, or the Historic Lincoln Lodge. In case we miss your arrival, or if you arrive on Friday, there is a door-to-door shuttle service which has a desk at the airport near the baggage claim area. DRIVING DIRECTIONS AND PARKING Directions to Hendrick House. From I-74, take the Lincoln Avenue exit in Urbana and proceed south for about 1.5 miles, then turn right onto Green Street. Hendrick House is the highrise building located immediately to your right at the northwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Green Street. Those staying at Hendrick House can use the Hendrick House parking lot. Parking passes are available at the front desk, for $3 per day. All conference venues are within easy walking distance from Hendrick House Check-in procedures at Hendrick House. Guests arriving at Hendrick House during regular business hours, 8:00am-7:00pm, Monday through Friday, can check in at the front desk. Guests will be issued an entry key for the building and a key to their room. Bed linen will be laid out on the bed for the guest to make the bed upon arrival. Towels, soap and a cup are also provided. All bathrooms are shared with another guest of the same gender. The building is completely air conditioned. There is no smoking allowed. After hours check-in at Hendrick House. Guests arriving after 7 pm can gain entry by following the directions posted on the front door. A sign will be posted with the name and phone number of the resident advisor (R.A.) on duty. Use the telephone adjacent to the front door of the building to call the R.A. The R.A. will then come to the door to check you in. Directions to campus parking. Altgeld Hall and the Illini Union are located about a half mile west of Hendrick House, at the southeast corner of Green and Wright Streets. Unfortunately, parking in the campus area is very limited, and expensive, and has become more complicated because of ongoing construction work. In particular, Green Street is closed from Wright Street to Fourth Street in Champaign. (This does not affect those staying and parking at Hendrick House.) If you are staying at Hendrick House, we suggest that you leave your car at the Hendrick House lot and walk the few blocks to the conference venues. If you are staying at a motel off campus and need to park on campus, we suggest that you use the University parking garage at John and 6th Streets, located one block west of Altgeld Hall; the top floor of the garage has metered spaces (at $0.75 per hour) for visitors. Parking in the garage is free on Saturday, and after 5 pm during the week. To reach the entrance of the parking garage, we suggest the following route: Follow the directions above to Hendrick House, but continue westbound on Green Street until the next light (at Goodwin Avenue), then detour the closed part of Green St. by turning right on Goodwin Avenue, left (= west) on Springfield Ave. (which parallels Green St.), and after about half a mile turn left (= south) to Fourth Street. Cross Green Street, and take the first left, which is John Street; the parking garage is 1.5 blocks down John Street, between 5th and 6th Streets. Refer to the campus parking map for a location of parking lots. (The John Street Parking Garage is marked C7.)

THE 16TH ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON AUTOMORPHIC FORMS AND RELATED TOPICS Preliminary List of Participants Schedule of talks WHERE: Math Sciences Bldg , UCLA, Los Angeles CA DIRECTIONS TO UCLA PARKING Lectures will be held in Math Sciences 4000a Coffee and snacks will be in Math Sciences 6620. ARRIVAL DATE: Saturday, 23 March 2002 DEPARTURE DATE: Thursday, 28 March 2002 ORGANIZERS: William Duke ( duke@math.ucla.edu ), Ozlem Imamoglu ( ozlem@math.ucsb.edu ) DESCRIPTION: Over the last 15 years, the Annual Workshop has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from graduate students to well established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement; for accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as a forum for exchanging ideas. The atmosphere is always friendly, never confrontational. The study of automorphic forms plays a central role in number theory. This conference is focused upon but not limited to automorphic forms and in fact different points of view are welcome. We anticipate that several expository lectures will be given and encourage graduate students interested in number theory to attend. GENERAL INFORMATION: As usual, there is a $25 registration fee. This money will be used to buy snacks, like fresh bagels, fruit, fresh juice, coffee and tea at breakfast time, as well as lighter snacks, coffee and tea throughout the day. In addition, your registration fee pays for your own conference coffee mug (out of which you must drink the available liquids). ACCOMODATIONS: You need to make your own hotel reservation.

Higher Dimensional Varieties and Rational Points
Budapest, Hungary; 2--22 September 2001.
HIGHER DIMENSIONAL VARIETIES AND RATIONAL POINTS Alfrd Rnyi Institute of Mathematics, Budapest, Hungary, September 2 - September 22, 2001 The Alfrd Rnyi Institute of Mathematics , Hungarian Academy of Sciences which has recently been awarded the grant Centre of Excellence of the European Union, will host a 3 week programme in September 2001, in cooperation with The Erds Summer Institute, and the European networks EAGER and Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry . This event is supported by the EU High Level Scientific Conferences Project (proposal HIGHARITHM, contract No. HPCF 2001-00062). Co-chair: Jean-Louis Colliot-Thlne (Orsay) Jnos Kollr (Princeton University). Organizing Committee: Kroly Brczky, Jr. , Andrs Nmethi and Tams Szamuely . List of participants Accomodation information Arrival information Aim and scope The programme is organized in order to encourage collaboration between specialists in higher dimensional complex geometry and those studying arithmetic diophantine questions. In recent years it became apparent that the powerful geometric tools elaborated in connection with Mori's Minimal Model Program have applications over arithmetic ground fields as well. We hope that bringing together experts and graduate students specialising in higher dimensional geometry or arithmetic will induce further cross-fertilization between the two fields and give rise to new powerful results.

The Dwork Trimester
A cycle of conferences in honour of B. M. Dwork. Italy; May--July 2001.
A cycle of conferences on Dwork Theory Remembering Bernie The Dwork Trimester in Italy May--July2001 The Organizing Committee of the Dwork Trimester wishes to thank all those who participated for their contributions to the success of this scientific memorial to Bernie. Sites of the Conference Tentative Schedule Dwork' page of the Rendiconti Scientific Committee: Alan Adolphson Francesco Baldassarri Pierre Berthelot Gilles Christol Nicholas Katz Franois Loeser Steven Sperber The following mathematicians are expected to participate: A. Adolphson Y. Andr F. Baldassarri L. Berger V. Berkovich P. Berthelot J.-B. Bost J.-F. Boutot B. Chiarellotto G. Christol R. Coleman P. Colmez R. Crew A. D'Agnolo H. Darmon L. Di Vizio M. Emerton J.-Y. tesse E. Goren H. Hida Ch. Huyghes L. Illusie N. Katz K. Kedlaya M. Kisin B. LeStum F. Loeser F. Maaref S. Matsuda B. Mazur W. Messing F. Mokrane A. Ogus B. Perrin-Riou L. Ramero C. Sabbah P. Schapira P. Schneider S. Sperber H. P. F. Swinnerton-Dyer J. Tate T. Terasoma J. Tilouine N. Tsuzuki I. Vidal A. Virrion N. Wach D. Wan The primary goal of the conference is the investigation of the intrinsic geometric content of the arithmetic results and of the p-adic analytic methods due to Bernard Dwork (New York 5 27 1923 - Princeton 5 9 1998). Dwork exerted a strong influence on contemporary algebraic geometers with his proof of rationality of the zeta function of an algebraic variety over a finite field, and the introduction of a completely new p-adic cohomology theory for hypersurfaces of characteristic p 0. He produced deep p-adic results on the Hodge structure of Picard-Fuchs equations and founded a general theory of p-adic differential equations. Rather than a collection of isolated and ingenious methods enabling the proofs of some very deep theorems in arithmetic, Dwork's theory and results have great internal cohesion and are intimately and intrinsically related to the algebraic-geometric approach of Grothendieck and his school. It is the goal of this conference to explore these connections and to present new developments in Dwork's theory via a collection of main lecture cycles dedicated to some of the most important aspects of the theory. The most welcome listeners would be, besides specialists, young post-docs and graduate students in Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry. This extended period of work will include two special events. These will be one-week conferences on p-adic modular forms, p-adic L-functions and p-adic integration organized by M. Bertolini ( massimo@dimat.unipv.it or massimo@math.unipd.it ), to be held in Villa Monastero in Varenna on Lake Como from Sunday, June 3 to Saturday, June 9, 2001. (The lectures will be held from the morning of Monday, June 4 to Friday afternoon, June 8) Geometric Aspects of Dwork's Theory to be held in Bressanone, from Sunday July 1 to Saturday July 7, 2001. We expect to produce a volume of Proceedings. This activity will be co-sponsored by the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (INdAM), Rome, and by the European Network ``Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry''. The conference will be of course open to more specialized and or informal contributions. For further information, watch this page or contact F. Baldassarri at baldassa@math.unipd.it

Please adhere to the 20 minute limit for contributed talks in order to keep the schedule on track. TRANSPARENCIES We encourage speakers to prepare transparencies for their talks, since the blackboard is hard to read from the back of the room. Two overhead projectors will be available. A limited number of transparencies and pens will be available at the registration desk for those who have not prepared transparencies in advance. BANQUET The conference banquet will be Friday, May 18, at 6:30 pm, in Room 407 of the Levis Faculty Center , located on Illinois Street, about a third of a mile east of Altgeld Hall. Banquet tickets had to be reserved in advance, but a few extra tickets may become available due to cancellations. The banquet will offer a choice of two meat entrees (steak and turkey), and a vegetarian (Vegan) entree (eggplant). The vegetarian entree had to be prereserved. The two meat entrees have been ordered in equal numbers. Banquet tickets will be given out at registration; the tickets will be color coded according to the entree choice. The tickets will be collected by the wait staff, so be sure not to lose your tickets. MEALS The campus area houses many restaurants and coffee shops, mostly of the fast food variety. The registration packet will include a list of restaurants in the campus area, and a map. See also the section "Maps and Visitor Information" below for a link to a listing of restaurants in the Champaign-Urbana area. AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION For participants arriving Thursday at the Champaign airport who have notified us of their travel schedule, we will provide transportation to the Hendrick House dormitory, the Hampton Inn, or the Illini Union. In case we miss your arrival, or if you arrive on Friday, there is a door-to-door shuttle service which has a desk at the airport near the baggage claim area. Those staying at the Hampton Inn can use the free hotel shuttle service provided by the hotel; call the hotel from the airport to request the shuttle. Transportation back to the airport on Sunday will be arranged during the conference. DRIVING DIRECTIONS AND PARKING From I-74, take the Lincoln Avenue exit in Urbana and proceed south on Lincoln Avenue for about 1 1 2 miles to the traffic light on Green Street, then turn right. Hendrick House is the highrise building located immediately to your right at the northwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Green Street. Altgeld Hall and the Illini Union are located about a half mile further down Green Street, at the southeast corner of Green and Wright Streets. Parking in the campus area is very limited; if you need to park on campus, we suggest you use the University parking garage at John and 6th Streets, located one block west of Altgeld Hall; the top floor of the garage has metered spaces for visitors. The meters are in effect on Friday; parking is free on Saturday at the University garage and on other University lots; refer to the campus parking map for location of parking lots. An alternative to the parking garage is the attended municipal parking lot at the northwest corner of 6th and Wright Streets. Note, however, that municipal parking is not free on Saturday. The Hampton Inn offers free parking for its guests. The parking lot at Hendrick House is closed for renovation, but guests at Hendrick House can park for $2.50 per day at Unversity Lot D9, located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Green and Lincoln, directly across from Hendrick House; this map shows the exact location. Permits can be purchased at the Hendrick House reception desk.

The room is equipped with two overhead projectors. Transparencies and pens will be available at the registration desk for those who have not prepared their transparencies in advance. Reception A reception for participants at the Millennial Conference on Number Theory, which begins Sunday, May 21, will be given on Saturday, May 20, from 8 - 10 pm, in the Levis Faculty Center, located a few blocks east of Altgeld Hall. All workshop participants are invited to attend this reception. For maps and directions to the Levis Faculty Center, see the Conference Venue section of the Millennial Conference homepage. Travel Most participants will be staying at the Quality Hotel. The hotel has a free shuttle service to and from the Champaign airport. When you arrive at the airport, call the hotel at 384-2100 or tollfree at 800-322-8282 to request the shuttle. (Note that the Quality Hotel does not have a courtesy phone; you need to use one of the pay phones located near the baggage area.) The trip from the airport to the Quality Hotel takes about 15 minutes. Accommodations Participants of the workshop will have the same lodging options as the the participants of the Millennial Conference following the workshop: a hotel and a student dormitory, both located within a few minutes walk from the conference site. Room reservations must be made directly with the hotel or the University housing service, and not with the conference organizers. The rooms have been blocked for the period May 18 - May 29, which covers both the Millennial Conference on Number Theory and its two satellite conferences. When making hotel or dormitory room reservations, please identify yourself as a participant of the "Number Theory Conference", rather than this workshop. This will ensure that you receive the special conference rate; it does not obligate you to stay for Millennial Conference. If you have difficulties making reservations yourself, let us know and we will try to make the reservations for you. Hotel accommodation: We have reserved a block of rooms at the Quality Hotel - University Center, 302 E. John St., Champaign. This hotel, located a few blocks from the University campus, is a 20 story high rise building with large and comfortable rooms, many of which offer a great view of the University campus and the cities of Champaign-Urbana. The hotel was formerly known as the University Inn, but is now part of the Quality Inn hotel chain. The rates for conference participants are $50 per night for a single room and $62 per night for a double room, plus 11% tax. Reservations should be made directly with the hotel, by calling the hotel at 800-322-8282 or 217-384-2100, sor sending your request by fax to 217-384-2298. When making the reservation, please identify yourself as a participant of the "number theory conference" in order to obtain the special conference rate. The deadline for reservations is April 20, 2000; after that date, the rooms will be released and may no longer be available. Dormitory accommodation: We have also reserved rooms at the Busey-Evans Halls, 1111-1115 W. Nevada, Urbana, two connected buildings on the University campus, which are used as student dormitories during the semester and as housing for conference guests during semester breaks. These residence halls are among the nicest on the UIUC campus and are fully airconditioned. Conference guests have a choice of single rooms at approximately $30 per night and double rooms at approximately $20 per night and per person. (These are estimated rates for Summer 2000, and do not include tax; final rates have not yet been set.) The rooms will have sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels, and there will be daily exchange of towel and washcloth. Bathroom facilities are single sex and centrally located on each floor. Each room has free local phone service, guests may use a calling card to outgoing toll calls and can receive calls directly to their room phone. To make reservations, call the Housing - Conference Services at 217-333-1766, or use the online reservation form at http: www.housing.uiuc.edu conference millennial.html .

School on Automorphic Forms on GL(n)
ICTP, Trieste, Italy; 31 July - 18 August 2000.
ICTP Mathematics Group: SMR 1233 Bulletin ICTP - The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics , Trieste, Italy School on Automorphic Forms on GL(n) Supported by the European Commission, Research DG, Human Potential Programme, High Level Scientific Conferences HPCF-CT-1999-00140 31 July - 18 August 2000 Miramare - Trieste, Italy The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), in conjunction with its mathematical theme of the year, Complex Algebraic Geometry and Algebraic Groups, is organizing a School on Automorphic Forms on GL(n) from 31 July to 18 August 2000. It will be directed by G. Harder (Universit228t Bonn Max-Planck-Institut f252r Mathematik, Germany) and M.S. Raghunathan (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India). PROGRAMME Automorphic Forms has been over the last century a central area in Mathematics, the Langlands programme being the principal preoccupation of many leading minds. In the recent past there have been many important developments in the area. The present School aims to introduce this deep and difficult area to research scholars and students with a relatively modest background. In a series of lectures over a period of 2 weeks, the following topics will be covered: - Abelian class field theory - Artin's L-functions and their meromorphy - Overview of Langlands programme - Summary of structure theory of representations of groups over local fields - Basic facts on automorphic forms (complete reducibility of spaces cusp forms, finite dimensionality of spaces of automorphic forms - Taniyama-Weil conjecture - Langlands programme for local fields - Analytic properties of L-functions of automorphic forms - Multiplicity 1 theorems In the third week of the School, there will be a research level Conference to which many leading experts have been invited. The speakers in the instructional part of the School will include the following: J. Cogdell (Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, U.S.A.) G. Harder (Universit228t Bonn Max-Planck-Institut f252r Mathematik, Germany) D. Prasad (Mehta Research Institute, Allahabad, India) M.S. Raghunathan (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India) T.N. Venkataramana (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India) T. Wedhorn (Universit228t zu K246ln, Germany) PARTICIPATION Mathematicians from all countries that are members of the UN, UNESCO or IAEA can attend the School. The main purpose of the Centre is to help research workers from developing countries through a programme of training activities within a framework of international cooperation. However, students and post-doctoral scientists from developed countries are also welcome to attend. As the School will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of that language. Participants should preferably have completed some years of study and research after a first degree. There is no registration fee for participation in the School. As a rule, all expenses of the participants should be borne by the home institution. However, a limited number of financial grants are available for participants from developing countries. As scarcity of funds allows travel to be granted only in few exceptional cases, every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fares (or at least half of their fares) from their home country. Graduate and doctoral students should include with their application two letters of recommendation. EC GRANTS FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN EUROPE A grant from the European Commission will make it possible to provide financial support (travel and or subsistence) for some young researchers in Europe who both qualify for the School and satisfy the Age and Residence Criteria. Age Criterion Young researchers are researchers up to an age limit of 35 years at the time of the event. Allowance will be made for compulsory military or civil service (actual time spent in military or civil service) and childcare (maximum 2 years per child for the actual time spent off work). Residence Criterion Young researchers who are nationals of a Member State of the European Union* or an Associated State**, and active inside a Member State or an Associated State at the time of the Event. _________________________ * Member States of the European Union Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. ** Associated States Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia.

Financial Support A large amount of funding is available to facilitate attendance by graduate students who do not have access to support through their own institution or their advisors. We expect to be able to pay people's expenses up to $800. Estimating local costs at $400 and travel costs at $400, this should cover everything. Registration Space limits this meeting to 20 out-of-town students plus 4 local students. (Other local students can attend the lectures but not the group sessions.) If you wish to attend this meeting, you must send by email to Nigel Boston your name, affiliation, and a statement of why you wish to attend the workshop (at most one page). Also, please indicate your gender and any preferences you might have as to room-sharing. Also, you must have your advisor send us a letter of recommendation to arrive by May 20. This letter should indicate what level of background you have had in algebraic number theory, commutative algebra, and algebraic geometry. We will tell you by May 27 as to whether your application has been successful. About the Organizers Nigel grew up in England, did his undergraduate work at Cambridge University, and got his Ph.D. with Barry Mazur from Harvard in 1987. His thesis work was in deformations of Galois representations. After a year in Paris and two in Berkeley, he went to the University of Illinois where he has been ever since, except for six months at the Newton Institute, during which time Andrew Wiles first announced a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. He has written an expository article on the proof for the College Mathematics Journal and has taught a graduate course on it. His research is in algebraic number theory, group theory, and lately applications of arithmetical geometry to engineering. Chris grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He went off to college to the University of Michigan, from which he received a B.S. in Mathematics in 1993. In 1997 he received his Ph.D. from Princeton University where he was a student of Andrew Wiles. He was fortunate to be around Princeton during the exciting days surrounding the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. Since 1997 he has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study, and in the fall of 2000 he will join the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. These days his research focuses on the modularity of Galois representations and other arithmetic aspects of automorphic forms.

1999 Illinois Number Theory Conference Illinois Number Theory Conference September 17-18, 1999 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Information for participants (updated 9 7 1999) Schedule of talks (updated 9 16 1999) Conference Program The 1999 Illinois Number Theory Conference will mark the beginning of a Special Year in Number Theory at the University of Illinois. It will feature hour talks by K.Alladi (University of Florida), P. Borwein (Simon Fraser University), A. Pollington (Brigham Young University), and K.S. Williams (Carleton University), and there will be opportunities for contributed talks of 20 minutes duration. The Illinois Number Theory Conferences are annual two day meetings, usually held in the Spring at the University of Illinois or at a neighboring university. The main focus of these conferences is on the areas of elementary, combinatorial, analytic, computational, and probabilistic number theory. The algebraic side of number theory is covered by a similar series of meetings, the Midwest Algebraic Number Theory Days. The conference begins Friday, September 17, 1999, at 9:00 a.m., and will end Saturday evening. Sponsors The conference is hosted by the Mathematics Department at the University of Illinois and is supported by the Number Theory Foundation and the National Science Foundation. Contributed Talks A limited number of slots is available for 20 minute contributed talks. The deadline for requesting a contributed talk is August 15, 1999. If you are interested in giving a contributed talk, please use the online registration form . Accommodations We strongly recommend that you stay at the Quality Inn - University Center (formerly the University Inn). A block of rooms has been reserved at this hotel for the nights of September 16 - 18, 1999, at the rate of $50 per night plus tax. The hotel is centrally located in the Champaign campus area and will be the site of all talks on Friday, and of the conference banquet scheduled for Friday evening. (On Saturday, talks will be given in the UIUC mathematics department, located four blocks from the hotel.) Hotel guests can park for free in the hotel parking garage. Reservations should be made directly with the hotel, by calling 800-322-8282 or 217-384-2100 and identifying yourself as a participant of the Illinois Number Theory Conference. The reservation deadline is August 15, 1999; after that date, the rooms will be released and may no longer be available. Travel The Champaign airport is served by American Airlines, TWA, US Airways, and Northwest Airlines. The Quality Inn provides free shuttle service to and from the airport. Financial Support A limited amount of funding is available to facilitate attendance by recent PhD's and advanced graduate students who do not have access to support through their own institution or their advisors. Any support will likely be limited to reimbursement of local expenses, and other sources of funding, such as research grants or support from the home institution, should be exhausted first. If you are interested in applying for such support, contact Harold Diamond (diamond@math.uiuc.edu); for graduate students, the thesis advisor should submit a supporting letter.

Millennial Conference on Number Theory - Final Announcement Millennial Conference on Number Theory May 21 - 26, 2000 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Conference Wrap-Up Group Photo (jpeg file [1,270k]) List of Participants (ps file [87k]) Titles of Talks (ps file [99k]) Abstracts (ps file [324k]) Abstracts in html format (from AMCA abstract server) Conference Program Second announcement First announcement Conference statistics A total of 276 participants have registered for and attended the conference. An additional 11 number theorists registered for the conference, but could not attend in person. The participants represented 30 countries, ranging from the U.S. and Canada to European countries and to far-away places such as Fiji, Japan, Taiwan, China, and Australia. The conference featured 157 talks , of which 19 were one-hour plenary talks, 73 half-hour invited talks given in 4 parallel sessions, and 65 contributed talks given in 5 parallel sessions. In addition to these scientific talks, the conference included three 40 minute talks of historical and reminiscing flavor, and several after dinner speeches honoring Professor Emeritus Paul Bateman on his 80th birthday. Conference Proceedings The Conference Proceedings will be published by A K Peters in a projected set of two volumes totaling approximately 1000 pages. In addition to these traditional style proceedings, A K Peters will publish an economically priced paperback volume containing selected survey lectures given at the conference. The Proceedings are scheduled to appear in mid 2001. General guidelines: All speakers are invited to submit a paper for these proceedings. Papers should normally be based on (or at least closely connected with) the talk given at the conference. In addition to original research papers, we welcome well-written survey papers. Because of restrictions on the size of the volumes, shorter papers are preferred, and we may not be able to consider excessively long papers. (Plenary speakers do not fall under this restriction.) Refereeing: Research papers will be refereed using the standards of journals such as the Journal of Number Theory, Acta Arithmetica, the Journal de Theorie des Nombres de Bordeaux, and The Ramanujan Journal. We will make every effort to ensure timely refereeing, and we thank in advance the referees (many of whom will be selected from among the conference participants) for their work. Technical preparation of papers: If possible, papers should be prepared in LaTeX, with a font size of 10 points, and textheight and textwidth set to 42pc and 27pc, respectively. To achieve these dimensions, proceed as follows: For papers in LaTeX: use 10 point font size, and specify the following settings in the preamble (before \begin{document}): \textheight42pc \textwidth27pc For papers in AmSTeX amsppt, use 10 point font size (default), and specify the following at the beginning of the paper, but after \documentstyle{amsppt}. \pageheight{42pc} \pagewidth{27pc} For papers in Plain TeX: use 10 point font size (default) and specify the following at the beginning of the manuscript: \vsize42pc \hsize27pc Submission procedure: Papers can be submitted either electronically or as a hard copy. For hard copy submission, send two copies of the paper to the member of the Organizing Committee (B.C. Berndt, N. Boston, H.G. Diamond, A.J. Hildebrand, and W. Philipp, all at the Univ. of Illinois, Dept. of Mathematics, Urbana, IL 61801) most appropriate for the paper. For electronic submission, send your tex file(s) to millennial-submit@math.uiuc.edu, along with a brief email cover letter. Papers received electronically will be processed and passed on to an appropriate editor. Please do not send submit both an electronic file and a hard copy. The deadline for submission of manuscripts is September 30, 2000.

De plus, comme le transport de l'information module s'effectue sur des porteuses haute frquence, l'utilisation efficace de la bande passante dpend pour beaucoup des proprits des oscillateurs lectroniques et de leur synchronisation, ce qui est un problme d'approximation diophantienne. Plus prcisment on a observ que la comprhension du bruit des frquences fait appel aux proprits de la fonction zta de Riemann proximit de la droite critique. Cette rencontre, subventionne par le CNRS , a pour but d'informer sur les liens obtenus l'interface entre les problmes diophantiens, la physique quantique et la mtrologie des frquences.

Snaith Institut de Mathmatiques de Jussieu UMR 7586 du CNRS Thorie des nombres, bruit des frquences et tlcommunications Institut Henri Poincar Vendredi 3 et Samedi 4 Dcembre 1999 RESUMS DES EXPOSS Francesco AMOROSO Distribution de la suite de Farey, Hypothse de Riemann et hauteur normalise de certains courbes On sait, depuis un article de Niederreiter, que la suite de Farey est uniformment distribue dans [0,1]. On sait aussi, depuis deux travaux clbres de Franel et Landau, que des bornes fines de la discrpance (qui mesure la qualit de la distribution) de cette suite sont lies l'hypothse de Riemann. Dans cet expos nous ferons le point sur ces rsultats. Nous prsenterons les travaux classiques cits et d'autres travaux (peut-tre moins connus) de Mikols, Codec, Perelli, Kanemitsu et Yoshimoto. Nous discuterons aussi de liens entre l'hypothse de Riemann et la hauteur normalise (au sens de Zhang et Philippon - David) de certains courbes dans G_m^2.. RFRENCES R. BALASUBRAMANIAN A few aspects of Riemann Hypothesis In this lecture we shall trace the number theoretic approaches to prove Riemann Hypothesis. This includes Lindelff Hypothesis, density results, the number of zeros on the line sigma=1 2 (Hardy-Selberg), mean value results, etc. We shall also discuss the order of zeta function on 1 2-line (omega results) (unconditionally and under Riemann Hypothesis). We shall briefly touch upon Montgomery's pari correlation conjecture (which goes beyond Riemann Hypothesis). Pierre CARTIER Fonction zta de Riemann, fonction zta de Selberg et dessins d'enfants A ct de la fonction de Riemann , Selberg a introduit une fonction dont on sait localiser les zros (partie relle 1 2) et qui lui ressemble beaucoup . Des expriences numriques menes par moi-mme , puis reprises grande chelle par Hejhal , ont permis de calculer de nombreux zros de cette fonction , interprts comme des valeurs propres. Je voudrais esquisser comment la gomtrie des lignes de niveau des fonctions propres associes pourrait s'interprter l'aide du thorme de Biely ("dessins d'enfant"). Paula COHEN Gomtrie non commutative et la fonction zta de Riemann et de Dedekind Nous reprenons l'tude d'un certain systme dynamique tudi par Bost et Connes et motiv par des travaux de B. Julia. Il s'agit d'un systme dynamique fonction de partition la fonction zta de Riemann et brisure spontane de symtrie au ple de cette fonction. L'approche rcente de Connes l'hypothse de Riemann y est relie. Une gnralisation de l'oratrice s'applique la fonction zta de Dedekind. Jean-Michel COURTY Mesures quantiques non idales Les amplificateurs sont des lments essentiels dans les mesures de haute prcision. Leur rle est d'amplifier le signal un niveau dtectable et aussi trs souvent de maintenir par rtroaction l'appareil de mesure son point de fonctionnement optimal. Une analyse raliste du processus de mesure ne peut donc ignorer la prsence de systmes actifs. Il est aussi ncessaire d'y associer une description prcise des phnomnes fondamentaux ainsi que des contraintes exprimentales. Ceci pose des questions fondamentales pour le problme de la mesure quantique. Quels sont les rles respectifs des fluctuations thermodynamiques et des fluctuations quantiques? Comment tenir compte des lments actifs dans une mesure quantique? Comment les contraintes exprimentales interagissent-elles avec les limites fondamentales de sensibilit? Je prsenterai cette problmatique et je l'illustrerai en discutant le cas d'un appareil rel, un acclromtre friction froide dvelopp pour des applications de physique fondamentale dans l'espace. Jacky CRESSON Fractions continues et oscillateurs En partant des expriences sur les oscillateurs de Michel Planat on construit un espace de nombres, rendant compte du spectre des frquences exprimental. Cet ensemble de nombres est construit sous une hypothse fondamentale: il existe une rsolution finie. La structure de cet ensemble est rendu claire via l'utilisation des fractions continues. Patrick FLANDRIN Ondelettes et bruits en 1 f L'analyse et la modlisation de bruits en 1 f posent des problmes lis leurs caractristiques de non-stationnarit, de longue dpendance ou de (multi-)fractalit. On montrera comment la transformation en ondelettes offre, par sa structure multirsolution, un langage naturel et un cadre unifi pour l'tude de tels processus. Divers modles (gaussiens, stables, d'auto-similarit tendue, de cascades) seront considrs dans le cadre du formalisme ondelettes, en lien avec des applications en turbulence dveloppe et en tltrafic informatique. Serge PERRINE Mathmatiques et Tlcommunications L'expos fera le point sur les domaines d'intrt commun entre Mathmatiques et Tlcommunications. Aprs une identification du domaine des Tlcommunications, et quelques rappels sur les liens historiques entre les deux domaines, on tentera une revue sur les domaines actuels d'intrt commun. Une des difficults de la prsentation est que les Tlcommunications font partie du domaine plus vaste du traitement de l'information, lui mme partie de domaines encore plus vastes des sciences de l'ingnieur. On fera donc quelques choix, guids par l'actualit du domaine. On voquera ce qui est relatif la modlisation, notamment autour d'Internet. On abordera les problmes de modlisation du trafic, ce qui est relatif la gestion de rseaux de routeurs, et bien entendu les problmes de codage de l'information. L'objet de l'expos est de montrer comment diffrents problmes techniques actuels peuvent dboucher sur de nouveaux problmes mathmatiques intressants. Il est intressant galement, en sens inverse, de montrer comment diffrents chapitres de mathmatiques considrs autrefois comme sans application possible peuvent aujourd'hui servir une meilleure comprhension de certains aspects des Tlcommunications. On mettra l'accent sur ce qui est relatif la gomtrie hyperbolique, aux formes modulaires, et l'arithmtique. On tentera, pour conclure, une revue des volutions l'oeuvre au niveau national et international dans le domaine des Tlcommunications, ainsi qu'une vocation des politiques repres la croise des deux grands domaines voqus ici. Michel PLANAT Bruit des frquences sur un rcepteur de communication et fonction zta de Riemann Dans un dispositif de communications, l'information est module sur un oscillateur (la porteuse) et compare un oscillateur local (de reference) au travers d'un mlangeur non linaire, ce qui permet de ramener le traitement de l'information en bande de base (au voisinage du continu). Ce principe n avec la radio revit actuellement avec les communications mobiles. Rcemment nous avons constat exprimentalement que le spectre des raies issues du mlange possde la dynamique des approximations diophantiennes. Les frquences du battement s'interprtent comme les fractions continues du rapport des frquences des oscillateurs d'entre. Les amplitudes du battement correspondent l'cart de la position des rationnels par rapport aux espacements uniformes. La phase de la fonction zta de Riemann sur (ou au voisinage) de la droite critique est la cl des fluctuations de phase du battement. On passera en revue les rsultats acquis l'interface entre les manips et la thorie des nombres premiers, et comment ils permettent d'envisager de nouvelles voies pour la modulation et le codage de l'information. Enrico RUBIOLA Phase noise metrology Phase noise, usually described in terms of the power spectrum density S_phi(f) of the phase fluctuation phi(t), is a relevant concern for high speed telecommunications, for research purposes and for space applications. The interferometric method seems to be the best choice for the measurement of S_phi in critical applications. In fact this method, compared to other ones, shows higher sensitivity, due to the low white and flicker instrument noise, a wider power range, and an improved immunity to low frequency magnetic fields. A sensitivity of the order of -180 dBrad^2 Hz (white) and -150 dBrad^2 Hz (flicker at 1 Hz) is not difficult to obtain, both in the HF-VHF and microwave regions. As the interferometric method allows to measure the instant phase in real time, it can be exploited to dynamically correct the phase noise of amplifiers and oscillators. If the real time measure is not needed -- as in the characterization of electronic components -- correlation and averaging techniques can be used to further improve the sensitivity. Correlating and averaging the output of two equal interferometers a noise compensation mechanism takes place; thus, the instrument noise floor S_phi_floor can be lower than the thermal energy kT referred to the carrier power Pc. Finally, an improved scheme makes use of a single amplifier that drives two detectors in quadrature with one another. Properly choosing the detection geometry, the phase noise measurement is still possible but the amplifier noise is rejected due to the quadrature condition. This is a joint work with Vincent Giordano Talk will be given in french. Nina SNAITH Every moment brings a treasure: the Riemann zeta function and random matrix theory The eigenvalues of large random unitary matrices have been conjectured to display the same statistics as the zeros of the Riemann zeta function high on the critical line. In our recent work we have been determining the extent to which investigations of random matrices can aid in the study of the moments of the zeta function averaged along the critical line, since mean values of the characteristic polynomials of these matrices offer a route for understanding the Riemann moments.

Coding theory, Cryptography, and Number Theory
USNA, Annapolis, MD, USA; 25--26 October 1998.
Conference on Coding theory, Cryptology, and Number Theory USNA Mathematics Department Coding theory, Cryptology, and Number Theory Conference Time: October 25 and 26, 1998 Place: USNA Math Dept, Chauvenet Hall, (most talks in C116, Peter Hilton's talk in C216) Coding theory and cryptology number theory will be on Sunday the 25th, with more cryptology number theory on Monday the 26th. Prof Hilton will speak Monday night the 26th. This conference is generously funded by the NSA. No registration fee for attending the conference but if you plan to attend, please email David Joyner at wdj@nadn.navy.mil or call at (410)293-6738. Main Speakers: Professor Peter Hilton SUNY, Binghamton and Univ. of Central Florida Time: 7-8pm, Monday Oct 26 Title: Breaking high grade German ciphers in WWII; working with Alan Turing Abstract: During World War II a team of mathematicians, and young would-be mathematicians, worked round the clock to break the highest grade German military and diplomatic codes. They were astonishingly successful, and as a result provided the allied war machine with an unprecedentedly complete picture of the enemy plans and dispositions. I was fortunate to be chosen to be a member of that team. In this talk I describe our work and the atmosphere in which it was conducted. I will further give a description of the special contribution of the famous logician Alan Turing, whom I knew well for the last 10 years of his tragically short life. Professor Carl Pomerance Univ Georgia Time: 1:00-1:50 pm, Sunday Oct 25 Title: Probability and Factoring Abstract: Some important cryptographic systems base their security on our supposed inability to factor large numbers. It thus becomes important to see just how hard this problem is. Some of the best factoring methods we have are modeled on some attractive results in probability theory. For example, the birthday paradox from elementary probability theory (which discusses how soon there will be a repeat when random integers are chosen from the interval [1,x] ) is the model for the ``rho'' factoring method of John Pollard. Consider a similar probabilistic problem: how soon will a subsequence have product a square when we choose integers randomly from [1,x] ? If we choose the same integer twice, as in the birthday problem, then we have the subsequence. But there are other ways to get a product to be a square other than just multiplying a number by itself. We shall show that the answer is quite different for this new probabilistic problem than for the birthday problem; and the factoring algorithms it leads to (the quadratic sieve and the number field sieve, among others) are much faster than the rho method. Dr. Neil J. A. Sloane ATT Shannon Labs Time: 5:00-5:50 pm, Sunday Oct 25 Title: Codes and Sphere Packings Abstract: An overview of the connections between coding theory and the problem of packing spheres in n-dimensional space. There have been exciting developments in the sphere packing problem this summer. Other speakers On Sunday (in C116 or C117): Bill Wardlaw (USNA, "The RSA Public Key Cipher Algorithm "), 2:00-2:35 pm, Oct 25, Samuel J. Lomonaco, Jr. , (UMBC, "Quantum Cryptographic Protocols or How Alice and Bob Outwit Eve") 2:45-3:20 pm, Oct 25, T.S. Michael (USNA, "Pranks by Design "), 3:30-4:05 pm, Oct 25, A. Shokrollahi , (Bell Labs, "List Decoding of Algebraic-Geometric Codes"), 4:15-4:50, Oct 25 and on Monday (in C216): Dr Charles Osgood, (NSA, "A briefing on NSA grants"), 12:00-1:00, Oct 26 Dr David Hatch, (NSA Museum, "Enigma and Purple: How the allies exploited enemy communications in WWII"), 3:45-4:45pm, Oct 26 List of speakers and titles in chronological order There are plans for a dinner with the speakers Sunday night, October 25th. Dinner with Peter Hilton on Monday night. Time and place to be announced. (Tentatively, in Annapolis somewhere, around 6pm Sunday and 5:30pm on Monday.) Directions: From Baltimore, take I97 down to Rt50, follow the signs to Annapolis. From DC, take Rt 50 east to Annapolis. Get off Rt 50 at the Rowe Blvd exit. Go straight on Rowe Blvd (through 3 lights) until you get to a T intersection. This will be Rowe+College Ave. Turn left and go to the next light. Turn right onto King George. Go straight. King George takes you to the visitors gate (also called gate 1). Visitors parking is just inside the gate to the right. (There is also a parking lot closer to the Math Dept but you should get a parking pass at gate 3 to park there.) To get to the Math Dept, go straight as you pass through the gate and follow road as it hugs the sea wall, keeping the water on your right-hand side. Eventually, you will see some sail boats docked on your right. If you go about 500 yards further, you will see a blue running track on your left. The Math Dept is in Chauvenet Hall, which is the building besides the running track.

The year will be organized around a certain number of workshops, seminar courses and mini-courses spread throughout the year. Following is a schedule of events: NATO Advanced Study Institute CRM Summer School 1998: The Arithmetic and Geometry of Algebraic Cycles Workshop on Algebraic modular forms and modular forms mod p Workshop on Analytic number theory CMS Winter Meeting Workshop on Representations of reductive p-adic groups Workshop on Arithmetical algebraic geometry Moonshine Workshop 6th Conference of the Canadian Number Theory Association Seminar courses Mini-courses Chaire Aisenstadt Lectures Organizing Committee Registration Form Workshop on Algebraic modular forms and modular forms mod p 2-8 October 1998 The last decades have witnessed the emergence of a "Langlands philosophy mod p" which (among other things) relates Galois representations to modular forms mod p. This instructional workshop will survey this circle of ideas, with a special emphasis on (1) Gross's theory of "algebraic modular forms" and (2) the progress on Serre's conjectures arising from the work of Ribet, Taylor, and Wiles. There will be three lecture series. B. Gross (Harvard): Algebraic modular forms K. Ribet (UC Berkeley): Congruences between modular forms S. Kudla (Maryland): The Siegel-Weil formula Organizers: H. Darmon (McGill and CICMA) and G. Savin (Utah) Program Workshop on Analytic number theory 24-27 October 1998 The workshop will focus on recent developments in analytic number theory with special emphasis on non-vanishing theorems for L-functions attached to automorphic forms. Organizer: R. Murty (Queen's) Invited Speakers: K. Dilcher, J. Friedlander, S. Gonek, J. Hoffstein, H. Iwaniec, K. Murty, R. Murty, M. Nair, R. Raghunathan, C.S. Rajan, C.

Yu Complete Schedule Workshop on Arithmetical algebraic geometry 14-18 May 1999 Arithmetic algebraic geometry covers a range of possible topics, and a number of graduate students will be attending the workshop, so participants have been asked to address their lectures to a wide audience and to attempt to deliver "survey talks". Organizers: M. Goresky (IAS) and K. Murty (Toronto) Invited Speakers: A. Baragar, D. Boyd, W. Casselman, H. Darmon, B. Gordon, M. Goresky, E. Kani, M. Kolster, J. Kramer, J. Lewis, K. Murty, M. Nori, Frans Oort, J. Scherk, N. Wieslawa, N. Yui, S.-W. Zhang Complete Schedule Moonshine Workshop 29 May - 4 June 1999 "Moonshine" started in 1978 with the observation that representations of some sporadic groups are naturally parametrized by the Fourier coefficients of certain modular forms. The functions arising here are axiomatizable as replicable functions from their behaviour under a generalized Hecke operator. There is a panoply of mathematics used in these investigations. Vertex algebras, graded Lie algebras, conformal field theory, automorphic functions, Fuchsian groups, computational algebra, Schwarz derivatives, Hecke operators, representation theory, and mirror maps all appear. The workshop, one in a two yearly series, will focus on recent developments on the subject. Organizer: J. McKay (Concordia) Invited Speakers: A.O.L.

Poem about the Riemann Zeta Function
A mathematical hyper-poem.
Zeta poem A poem about the Riemann zeta function My stuff: Papers Links Home AIM: AIM Home Page Where are the zeros of zeta of s ? G.F.B. Riemann has made a good guess; They're all on the critical line , saith he, And their density's one over 2 p log t. This statement of Riemann's has been like a trigger, And many good men, with vim and with vigour, Have attempted to find, with mathematical rigour, What happens to zeta as mod t gets bigger. The efforts of Landau and Bohr and Cramer, Littlewood , Hardy and Titchmarsh are there, In spite of their effort and skill and finesse, In locating the zeros there's been little success. In 1914 G.H. Hardy did find, An infinite number do lay on the line, His theorem, however, won't rule out the case, There might be a zero at some other place. Oh, where are the zeros of zeta of s? We must know exactly, we cannot just guess. In order to strengthen the prime number theorem , The integral's contour must never go near 'em. Let P be the function p minus Li, The order of P is not known for x high, If square root of x times log x we could show, Then Riemann's conjecture would surely be so. Related to this is another enigma, Concerning the Lindelf function mu sigma . Which measures the growth in the critical strip, On the number of zeros it gives us a grip. But nobody knows how this function behaves, Convexity tells us it can have no waves, Lindelf said that the shape of its graph, Is constant when sigma is more than one-half. There's a moral to draw from this sad tale of woe, which every young genius among you should know: If you tackle a problem and seem to get stuck, Use R.M.T. , and you'll have better luck.

The Riemann Hypothesis
Web article by Aldo Peretti.
THE RIEMANN HYPOTHESIS THE RIEMANN HYPOTHESIS By Aldo Peretti Download all the text 1 Introduction In 1859, G.F.B.Riemann published a most famous paper concerning the distribution of prime numbers, with the title: On the quantity of prime numbers below a given quantity, where, for the first time were used the methods of complex variable functions in order to determine (x) : the quantity of prime numbers x. His starting formula was the product decomposition that Euler had found for the zeta function (s) = i.e. the formula (s) = where p stands for the prime numbers. (Riemann used the letter s to denote the variable, s = + it ; and this way of notation was unanimously used after him) In the first part of the memoir, he proves the functional equation of the zeta function, and after this he deduces the formula valid for 1, and where f(x) = This formula had been obtained formerly in 1848 by Tchebychev (whose work on the subject very likely was known to Riemann). But he was unable to make the inversion of this formula, that Riemann succeeded to do, obtaining thus: f(x) = ( a 1) The remaining part of Riemanns paper is very obscure and confusing because of its excessive brevity. Fortunately some years ago E.C. Edwards published a wonderful book (ref. (1)) explaining and justifying step by step Riemanns reasoning. This required about 200 pages, and put in evidence that he performed six hypotheses before arriving at his final formula: 1). There are infinitely many zeros of (s) in the critical strip 0 1. 2) The quantity N(T) of these zeros in the rectangle 0 1 0 t T is N (T) = 3) The series -2 is convergent, but -1 diverges 4) The entire function (s) = s 2 s (s-1) (s) ( s 2) admits the product decomposition 5) All the imaginary zeros have real part 1 2 6) Let where li(x) denotes the logarithmic integral function; (x) is the quantity of primes x , and denotes the imaginary zeros of the zeta function. The hypothesis 1), 3) and 4) were proved in 1892 and 1893 by Hadamard. The hypothesis 2), with error term 0(log T) was proved in 1894 by von Mangoldt, who also proved hypothesis 6) (but he used an alternative way). There is besides a numerical and irrelevant mistake in the formula for 0 (x) , where Riemann writes () instead of -log 2. Hence at present remains unproved only hypothesis 5). Remark that Riemanns formula for N(T) indeed gives the quantity of Gram points for t T, up to a difference of 8. How the hypothesis was not proved . Variant A) It is mentioned in 10.1, p. 213-214 of Titchmarshs textbook. (ref (2)) We have: This series converges very rapidly and one might suppose that an approximation to the truth could be obtained by replacing it by their first terms. The author has performed the exact calculation, and he proved that we are thus led to the formula Variant B) In other place of his book ref.(2) (Chapter III 3,1 p.38) Titchmarsh states that The problem of the zero-free region (of the zeta function) appears to be a question of extending the sphere of influence of the Euler product beyond its actual region of convergence , ...In fact, the deepest theorems on the distribution of the zeros of (s) are obtained in the way suggested. But the problem of extending the sphere of influence of (the Euler product) ... to the left of = 1 in any effective way appears to be of extreme difficulty The extremely difficulty problem was solved in 1991 by the author (ref (4)), who proved the product formula for integral positive x 2 and every s. Very unfortunately, this does not give us any information concerning the zeros. In change, in p.50 of the same reference, the author proved that there are infinitely many natural numbers x such that if there are not zeros for next EMAIL: aldo_aperetti@yahoo.es download all the text Contador Ver contador click aqui
Computation of Zeros of the Zeta Function
Verification of RH up to the 10^13-th zero, with details of the computations and further results, by Xavier Gourdon with the help of Patrick Demichel.
Computation of zeros of the Zeta function New Riemann Hypothesis verification record Riemann Hypothesis verified until the 1013-th zero. (October 12th 2004), by Xavier Gourdon with the help of Patrick Demichel. Billions of zeros at very large height (around the 1024-th zero) have also been computed. Details can be found in The 1013 first zeros of the riemann zeta function, and zeros computation at very large height . The Riemann Hypothesis (RH) is one the most important unsolved problem in mathematics (see Zeta generalities for details about the RH). It has naturally been numerically checked threw the ages, thanks to techniques about the Zeta functions evaluations (see Numerical evaluation of the Riemann Zeta-function for details). 1 History of numerical verification of the RH Numerical computations have been made threw the ages to check the RH on the first zeros. Computer age, starting with Turing computations, permitted to perform verification higher than billions of zeros. An history of the RH verification on the first n zeros is given below.

Wedeniwski[ 26 ] 2004 10,000,000,000,000 X. Gourdon and Patrick Demichel[ 5 ] Notice that the latest RH verification on the first 1013 zeros have been achieved thanks to the use of the fast Zeta multi-evaluation algorithm by Odlyzko and Schnhage, and that it is the first RH verification done with this technique. Details can be found in[ 5 ]. 2 Numerical computations of the distribution of the zeros of the Zeta function While numerical computations on zeros of the Zeta function have long been focused on RH verification only (to check the RH, isolating the zeros is sufficient so no precise computations of the zeros are needed) it was Odlyzko who the first, computed precisely large consecutive sets of zeros to observe their distribution. More precisely, Odlyzko made some empirical observations of the distribution on the spacing between zeros of z(s) in various zones and checked the correspondence with the GUE hypothesis, which conjectures that normalized spacing between zeros behaves like eigenvalues of random hermitian matrices (see[ 5 ] for more details). In 1987, Odlyzko computed numerically 105 zeros of the Riemann Zeta function between index 1012+1 and 1012+105 to the accuracy of 10-8 and was the first to observe a good agreement with the GUE hypothesis (see[ 16 ]). Later, in order to reach much higher heights, Odlyzko with Schnhage[ 20 ] developed a fast algorithm for multi-evaluation of z(s). After refinements to make this method efficient for practical purposes, Odlyzko was able to compute 70 million zeros at height 1020 in 1989 and then 175 million in 1992 at the same height (see[ 17 ]). Later he reached the height 1021 (see[ 18 ]), and in 2001 he computed ten billion zeros at height 1022 (see[ 19 ]). In a more recent unpublished work in 2002, Odlyzko computed twenty billion zeros at height 1023. 3 Numerical verification of the Riemann Hypothesis on the first 1013 zeros of Zeta The algorithm of Odlyzko and Schnhage to perform efficient multi-evaluation of Zeta function was implemented by Xavier Gourdon and used to check numerically the Riemann Hypothesis on the first 1013 zeros. Details can be found in the following paper . Statistics on the first 1013 zeros of the Zeta function Close roots The smallest normalized spacing between consecutive zeros rn=1 2+ign and rn+1=1 2+ign+1, denoted by dn = (gn+1-gn) log(gn (2p) 2p has been reached at gn=1034741742903.35376 (for root index n=4,088,664,936,217), with a value of d 0.00007025. Non normalized difference between those roots is equal to 0.00001709. This is the smallest known difference between roots of the Zeta function. Other close roots have been detected while verifying the RH on the first 1013 zeros, but some of them may have been missed since they were computed only when separation of Zeta zeros were made difficult. A (non exhaustive) list of close zeros of Zeta until the 1013-th zeros in excel format can be found here : CloseRoots.xls . Gram blocks and violations of Rosser rule Complete statistics between zero of index 100,002 and the 1013-th zeros can be found here : ZetaStatGlobal_1e5_1e13.txt . The same statistics for each 1012 step are available here: Range 100,002 to 1012 . Range 1012 to 21012 . Range 21012 to 31012 . Range 31012 to 41012 . Range 41012 to 51012 . Range 51012 to 61012 . Range 61012 to 71012 . Range 71012 to 81012 . Range 81012 to 91012 . Range 91012 to 1013 . Large values of |Z(t)| No particular search or reconvergence was performed to find maximum values of |Z(t)| during the computation. The largest values encountered during evaluation were just recorded, leading to the following table : Maximum values of abs(Z(t)) encountered . 4 Computations of zeros of the Riemann Hypothesis at very large height Computation of two billion zeros of the Zeta function at each of the height 1013, 1014, , 1023 and 1024 were done. What follows is a synthetic view of what is contained in the paper paper , where the reader should refer for more details. 4.1 The GUE hypothesis While many attempts to prove the RH had been made, a few amount of work has been devoted to the study of the distribution of zeros of the Zeta function. A major step has been done toward a detailed study of the distribution of zeros of the Zeta function by Hugh Montgomery[ 15 ], with the Montgomery pair correlation conjecture. Roughly speaking, this conjecture states that the density of normalized spacing between non-necessarily consecutive zeros is 1-(sin(pu) pu)2. It was first noted by the Freeman Dyson, a quantum physicist, during a now-legendary short teatime exchange with Hugh Montgomery, that this is precisely the pair correlation function of eigenvalues of random hermitian matrices with independent normal distribution of its coefficients. Such random hermitian matrices are called the Gauss unitary ensemble (GUE). As referred by Odlyzko in[ 16 ] for example, this motivates the GUE hypothesis which is the conjecture that the distribution of the normalized spacing between zeros of the Zeta function is asymptotically equal to the distribution of the GUE eigenvalues. Under this conjecture, we might expect that the distribution of the dn itself satisfies 1 M { n : N+1 n N+M, dn [a,b]} ~ b a p(0,u)du (1) where p(0,u) is a certain probability density function, quite complicated to obtain. As reported by Odlyzko in[ 18 ], we have the Taylor expansion around zero p(0,u) = p2 3 u2 - 2p4 45 u4 + p6 315 u6 + which under the GUE hypothesis entails that the proportion of dn less than a given small value d is asymptotic to (p2 9) d3 + O(d5). Thus very close pairs of zeros are rare. Previous computations by Odlyzko[ 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 ], culminating with the unpublished result of computations at height 1023, were mainly dedicated to the GUE hypothesis empirical verifications. As observed by Odlyzko using different statistics, agreement is very good. Our goal here was to compute some of the statistics observed by Odlyzko relative to the GUE hypothesis, at height at each power of ten from 1013 to 1024. Our statistics, systematically observed at consecutive power-of-ten heights, are also oriented to observe empirically how the distribution of the spacing between zeros of the Zeta function converges to the asymptotic expectation. 4.2 Statistics The statistics here are extracted from the paper paper , with in addition the statistics files generated by our program. 4.2.1 Computation information Computation was launched on spare time of several machines. Zeros were computed starting roughly from the 10n-th zero for 13 n 24. An amount of roughly 2109 zeros was computed at each height. Physical memory requirement was less than 512 Mo, and in the case of large height (for height 1023 and 1024), an amount of 12 Go of disk space was necessary. Table below gives some indications of timing and the value of R used (see section). It is to notice that due to the difficulty to have some long spare times on the different computers used, we adapt values of R that is why it is not monotonous. Due also to different capacities of the machines, the amount of used memory were not always identical. Timings are not monotonous also but at least, the table is just here to fix idea about cost. Third and fourth columns relates to offset index, so the value 10n should be added to have the absolute index of first or last zero. First and last zeros are always chosen to be Gram points proved regular with Turing's method (see section).

At height 1024 for example, two third of the total time was spent in the multi-evaluation of F(t) (see section) and a single evaluation of Zeta using the direct optimized evaluation of Riemann-Siegel formula() (we used it for verification) took 5 % of the total time. So globally, the time needed to compute all the 2109 zeros at height 1024 in our implementation is approximately equal to 20 evaluations of Zeta using the direct Riemann-Siegel formula. This proves the very high efficiency of the method. 4.2.2 Distribution of spacing between zeros Statistics were done to observe numerically the agreement of asymptotic formulas( 3 ), where the function p(0,t) has been computed with modern techniques. In our statistical study to check the validity of the GUE hypothesis, we observed the agreement of the empirical data with formulas( 3 ) on each interval [a,b), with a = i 100 and b = (i+1) 100 for integer values of i, 0 i 300. In figure 1 , in addition to the curve representing the density probability function p(0,t), points were plotted at abscissa (i+1 2) 100 and coordinate ci = 100 1 M { n : N+1 n N+M,dn [i 100,(i+1) 100]}, for height N=1013 and number of zeros M @ 2 109. As we can see the agreement is very good, whereas the graphic is done with the lowest height in our collection: human eye is barely able to distinguish between the points and the curve. That is why it is interesting to plot rather the density difference between empirical data and asymptotic conjectured behavior (as Odlyzko did in[ 19 ] for example). This is the object of figure 2 , and this time what is plotted in coordinate is the difference di = ci - (i+1) 100 i 100 p(0,t)dt. To make it readable, the graphic restricts on some family of height N even if the corresponding data were computed at all height. Even if oscillations in the empirical data appear because the sampling size of 2109 zeros is a bit insufficient, we clearly see a structure in figure 2 . First, the form of the difference at each height has a given form, and then, the way this difference decreases with the height can be observed. Figure 1: Probability density of the normalized spacing dn and the GUE prediction, at height 1013. A number of 2109 zeros have been used to compute empirical density, represented as small circles. Figure 2: Difference of the probability density of the normalized spacing dn and the GUE prediction, at different height (1014, 1016, 1018, 1020, 1022, 1024). At each height, 2109 zeros have been used to compute empirical density, and the corresponding points been joined with segment for convenience. 4.2.3 Violations of Rosser rule The table below lists statistics obtained on violations of Rosser rule (VRR). As we should expect, more and more violations of Rosser rule occurs when the height increases. Special points are Gram points which are counted in a VRR, so equivalently, they are points that do not lie in a regular Gram block. Height VRR per million zeros Number of types of VRR Number of special points Average number of points in VRR 1013 37.98 68 282468 3.719 1014 54.10 86 418346 3.866 1015 72.42 109 581126 4.012 1016 93.99 140 780549 4.152 1017 117.25 171 1004269 4.283 1018 142.30 196 1255321 4.411 1019 168.55 225 1529685 4.538 1020 197.28 270 1837645 4.657 1021 225.80 322 2156944 4.776 1022 256.53 348 2507825 4.888 1023 286.97 480 2868206 4.997 1024 319.73 473 3262812 5.102 4.2.4 Behavior of S(t) The S(t) function is defined in() and permits to count zeros with formula(). It plays an important role in the study of the zeros of the Zeta function, because it was observed that special phenomenon about the zeta function on the critical line occurs when S(t) is large. For example, Rosser rule holds when |S(t)| 2 in some range, thus one needs to have larger values of S(t) to find more rare behavior. As already seen before, it is known unconditionally that S(t) = O(logt). Under the RH, we have the slightly better bound S(t) = O logt loglogt . However, it is thought that the real growth of rate of S(t) is smaller. First, it was proved that unconditionally, the function S(t) (2p2 loglogt)1 2 is asymptotically normally distributed. So in some sense, the "average" order of S(t) is (loglogt)1 2. As for extreme values of S(t); Montgomery has shown that under the RH, there is an infinite number of values of t tending to infinity so that the order of S(t) is at least (logt loglogt)1 2. Montgomery also conjectured that this is also an upper bound for S(t). As described in section 4.2.6 with formula( 5 ), the GUE suggests that S(t) might get as large as (logt)1 2 which would contradict this conjecture. As explained in[ 18 ,P. 28], one might expect that the average number of changes of sign of S(t) per Gram interval is of order (loglogt)-1 2. This is to be compared with the last column of the table below, which was obtained thanks to the statistics on Gram blocks and violations of Rosser rule. As it is confirmed in heuristic data in the table below, the rate of growth of S(t) is very small. Since exceptions to RH, if any, would probably occur for large values of S(t), we see that one should be able to reach much larger height, not reachable with today's techniques, to find those.

It can be proved that p(0,t) have the following Taylor expansion around 0 p(0,u) = p2 3 u2 - 2 p4 45 u4 + so in particular, for small delta Prob (dn d) = d 0 p(0,u)du ~ p2 9 d3 so that the probability that the smallest dn are less than d for M consecutive values of dn is about 1- 1- p2 9 d3 M @ 1-exp - p2 9 d3 M . This was the value used in the sixth column of the table. The result can be also obtained for the dn+dn+1 Prob (dn+dn+1 d) ~ p6 32400 d8, from which we deduce the value of the last column.

(2) This would imply that S(t) would get occasionally as large as (logt)1 2, which is in contradiction with Montgomery's conjecture about largest values of S(t), discussed in section 4.2.4 . 4.2.7 Moments of spacings The table below list statistical data about moments of the spacing dn-1 at different height, that is mean value of Mk = (dn-1)k, together with the GUE expectations.

The Riemann Hypothesis
Article by Enrico Bombieri (PDF) and video by Jeff Vaaler (.ram) from the Clay Mathematics Institute.
Clay Mathematics Institute Clay Mathematics Institute Dedicated to increasing and disseminating mathematical knowledge HOME | ABOUT CMI | PROGRAMS | NEWS EVENTS | AWARDS | SCHOLARS | PUBLICATIONS Riemann Hypothesis Some numbers have the special property that they cannot be expressed as the product of two smaller numbers, e.g., 2, 3, 5, 7, etc. Such numbers are called prime numbers, and they play an important role, both in pure mathematics and its applications. The distribution of such prime numbers among all natural numbers does not follow any regular pattern, however the German mathematician G.F.B. Riemann (1826 - 1866) observed that the frequency of prime numbers is very closely related to the behavior of an elaborate function (s) = 1 + 1 2s + 1 3s + 1 4s + ... called the Riemann Zeta function. The Riemann hypothesis asserts that all interesting solutions of the equation (s) = 0 lie on a certain vertical straight line. This has been checked for the first 1,500,000,000 solutions. A proof that it is true for every interesting solution would shed light on many of the mysteries surrounding the distribution of prime numbers.

Proof of Riemann's Hypothesis
A claimed proof of Riemann's Hypothesis.
Proof of Riemann's Hypothesis PROOF OF RIEMANN'S HYPOTHESIS James Constant math@coolissues.com Riemann's hypothesis is proved using Riemann's functional equation. Introduction The famous conjecture known as Riemann' s hypothesis 1 is to classical analysis what Fermat's last theorem is to arithmetic. Euler (1737) noted that the formula the sum extending to all positive integers n, and the product to all positive primes p. The necessary conditions of convergence hold for complex values of s with real part 1. Considering as a function of of the complex variable s, Riemann (1859) proved that satisfies a functional equation = which led Riemann to the theorem that all the zeros of , except those at s=-2,-4,-6, . . . , lie in the strip of the s-plane for which where x is the real part of s. Riemann conjectured that all the zeros in the strip should lie on the line x= . Attempts to prove or disprove this conjecture have generated a vast and intricate department of analysis, especially since Hardy (1914) proved that has an infinity of zeros on x= . 2 The question is still open in 2000.

Easy Proof of Riemann's Hypothesis
Generalisations of the zeta function might provide a proof of Riemann's hypothesis.
Body Some Extended Zeta Functions Provide Easy Proofs of Riemann's Hypothesis James Constant math@coolissues.com While extended zeta functions support investigations of Riemann's hypothesis and estimates for the Prime Number Theorem, some zeta functions offer better prospects for providing easy proofs. Definitions A first zeta function is defined by .................... oo (1) ...... z(s)= ....................................s=x+jy........ x 1 ................... n=1 A second zeta function is defined by ....................... oo (2) ......z(1-s)= ...............................s=x+jy........ x 0 ...................... n=1 In 1859, Riemann had the idea to define z(s) for all complex numbers s by analytic extension. This extension is important in number theory and plays a central role in the distribution of prime numbers. There are a number of ways of extending the zeta function to points where 0 x 1. 1 One way of extending is by using the first f function alternating series defined by 2 .................... oo (3) ...... f(s)= ............................ s=x+jy ........ x 0 ................... n=1 which provides an extension of the first zeta function (1) to values of z such that 0 x 1 by means of the formula (4) ...... f(s)=(1-2 )z(s) ....................... x 1 A second f function is defined by ....................... oo (5) ...... f(1-s)= ......................... s=x+jy ........ x 1 ...................... n=1 which provides an extension of the second zeta function (2) to values of z such that 0 x 1 by means of the formula (6) ...... f(1-s)=(1-2 )z(1-s) .................... x 0 Equations (1) through (6) are analytic. Riemann's Extended Zeta Function and Functional Equation Euler (1737) noted that the formula (7) ...... for integers s 1 connected integers and primes, the sum extending to all positive integers n, and the product to all positive primes p. Considering as a function of z(s) of the complex variable s, Riemann (1859) examined this equation for s as a complex number and found that it can be extended to points with real part s 1 by the formula (among others) 3 (8) ...... z(s)= which function is another form of an extended Riemann zeta function. Riemann also proved that his extended zeta function (8) satisfies a functional equation (among others) (9) ...... z(s) = z(1-s) ........ s=x+jy which led him to the theorem that all the zeros of z(s), except those at s=-2,-4,-6, . . . , lie in the critical strip of the s-plane for which where x is the real part of s. Riemann conjectured that all the zeroes in the critical strip should lie on the critical line x=1 2. 4 Attempts to prove or disprove this conjecture have generated a vast and intricate department of analysis, especially since Hardy (1914) proved that z(s) has an infinity of zeros on x=1 2. 5 The question is still open in 2001. A prize is available to prove or disprove Riemann's hypothesis. 6 Riemann's extended zeta function (8) is probably one reason it has proven difficult to investigate Riemann's hypothesis. While the function is analytic, it is difficult to express it as a complex number with real and imaginary parts. This is not the case for the extended zeta or f function of equation (3). I will now show how equation (3) is a better extended zeta function for investigating Riemann's hypothesis. I note that Riemann's functional equation (9) can be expressed as the ratio z(s) z(1-s)=C(s) and that, but for some function B(s), z(s) z(1-s)= B(s)f(s) f(1-s) which can now be used in equation (9) to produce a new functional equation (10) ...... f(s)=A(s)f(1-s) the importance of which is that the f-functions can be easily expressed as complex numbers with real and imaginary parts. Elsewhere, I attempt a proof of Riemann's hypothesis using Riemann's extended zeta function (8). 7 , Here, I use extended zeta function (3) to make the proof. Proving Riemann's Hypothesis My theory for proving Riemann's hypothesis is simple. Since, f(s) f(1-s), except when x=1 2, functional equation (10) precludes zeros in the critical strip, except when x=1 2. I now show that f(s)=f(1-s)=0 only on the critical line x=1 2. It has already been shown that all zeros are in the critical strip and that they are symmetric about the critical line x=1 2. 8 Riemann's functional equation (9) can be restated in terms of the new functional equation (10) in which A(s) 0 at all points on the critical strip. Since functions f(s) and f(1-s) are single valued at each point on the critical strip they can be written in terms of their real and imaginary parts f(s)=u+jv and f(1-s)=u'+jv' in which .................. oo .............................................. oo (11) ...... u= ................v=- ................. n=1 ............................................ n=1 .................. oo ............................................. oo .............. u'= ................v'= ................. n=1 ........................................... n=1 When sin(ylnn)=0, equations (11) reduce to .................. oo (12) ...... u= ................v=0 ................. n=1 .................. oo .............. u'= .............. v'=0 ................. n=1 which occur when (13) yn,k= , .....n=1,2,3,...., .....k=0,1,2,3,....., sin(yn,klnn)=0, ......cos(yn,klnn)=(-1)k The significance of result (13) is that it gives, for each n, the (infinite) values of y for which v=v'=0 and thus greatly simplifies extended zeta f functions (3) and (5). It remains to be shown that equations (12) put the zeros of u and u' exactly on the critical line x=1 2. These equations now become .......................... oo (14) ...... u=(-1)k (-1)n+1 ......................... n=1 .......................... oo ............. u'=(-1)k .......................... n=1 Equations (14) are conditionally convergent infinite series which, depending from the rearrangement of terms, can be divergent or convergent to some number including zero. In such series, the value of the sum of the series can be changed at will by suitable rearraingement of the series. 9 Non-zero values of each series occur in the critical strip 0 x 1 even when x=1 2. Zero values mean that the value of each series, in the limit, approaches zero u0 and u'0. Since the difference between the sum of a converging alternating series and the sum of the first n terms is numerically less than the (n+1)th term and . Thus, as noo and uu'0, x1-x and x1 2 which proves Riemann's hypothesis in the sense that, in the limit, zeros of f(s)=f(1-s) approach but never reach the critical line x=1 2. A more rigorous proof puts zeros exactly on the critical line x=1 2 and nowhere else. Formally, since A(s) in functional equation (10) is determinate at all points of the critical strip including when x=1 2, f(s) and f(1-s) are different functions at all points of the critical strip except when x=1 2 and sin(ylnn)=0 for which f(s)=f(1-s)=0. This proves Riemann's hypothesis in the sense that zeros exist only on the critical line x=1 2. For example, if zeros exist on either side of and on x=1 2, then A(s)=f(s) f(1-s)=0 0 and, thus, A(s) is indeterminate at all points of the critical strip including when x=1 2, a result precluded by determinate A(s) in equation (10). Note that, since sin(ylnn)=0, y is not a single point but a collection of double infinite numbers yn,k on the critical line. In summary: 1. Equation (10) dictates that f(s)=f(1-s) on the critical line; 2. Equation f(s)-f(1-s)=0 dictates that sin(ylnn)=0 on the critical line; and 3. Equations (11) through (14) dictate that f(s)=f(1-s)=0 on the critical line, thus proving Riemann's hypothesis. The Prime Number Theorem and Riemann's Hypothesis The prime number theorem states that the number of primes p(x) in an interval x is approximately p(x)~x lnx where lnx is the natural logarithm of x. This theorem was proved by Hadamard (1896) and independently by de la Valle Pousson (1896) using Riemann's hypothesis, after showing that the zeros of Riemann's zeta function z(s) cannot lie too far off the critical line. Also assuming that the Riemann hypothesis is true, von Koch (1901) proved that ................................................................................. oo (15) ...... p(x)=Li(x)+O(x2logx) ................... Li(x)= ................................................................................ 2 where L(i) is Gauss's integral and O(x2logx) is an error term. 10 Thus, if Riemann's hypothesis is true, equation (15) tells us that Li(x) is a very good approximation to p(x). The known values of p(x) today agree with equation (15) but it is admitted that it is not easy to "have an idea of what should be exactly the error term." 11 . Here, results (13) and (14) should be helpful. 1 See E.C. Titchmarsh, The theory of the Riemann Zeta-function, Oxford Science Publications, second edition, revised by D.R.Heath-Brown (1986). 2 See R.

Riemann Hypothesis in a Nutshell
An article by Glen Pugh with a Java applet for viewing zeta on the critical line.
Riemann Hypothesis in a Nutshell [ Home ] [ Z(t) Plotter ] [ Verifying RH ] [ More Applets ] The Riemann Hypothesis in a Nutshell The Riemann Zeta Function image source In his 1859 paper On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude, Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) examined the properties of the function for s a complex number. This function is analytic for real part of s greater than 1 and is related to the prime numbers by the Euler Product Formula , again defined for real part of s greater than one. This function extends to points with real part s less than or equal to one by the formula (among others) . The contour here is meant to indicate a path which begins at positive infinity, descends parallel to and just above the real axis, circles the origin once in the counterclockwise direction, and then returns to positive infinity parallel to and just below the real axis. This function is analytic at all points of the complex plane except the point s = 1 where it has a simple pole. This last function is the Riemann Zeta Function (the zeta function). The Riemann Hypothesis The zeta function has no zeros in the region where the real part of s is greater than or equal to one. In the region with real part of s less than or equal to zero the zeta function has zeros at the negative even integers; these are known as the trivial zeros. All remaining zeros lie in the strip where the real part of s is strictly between 0 and 1 (the critical strip). It is known that there are infinitely many zeros on the line 1 2 + it as t ranges over the real numbers. This line in the complex plane is known as the critical line. The Riemann Hypothesis (RH) is that all non-trivial zeros of the zeta function lie on the critical line. Let's say that again: Riemann Hypothesis: all non-trivial zeros of the zeta function lie on the line 1 2 + it as t ranges over the real numbers. The Functional Equation and Friends The functional equation of the zeta function is from which values of the zeta function at s can be computed from its values at 1-s . Using this equation one sees immediately that the zeta function is zero at the negative even integers. Multiplying this equation through by s(s-1) 2 and applying standard factorial identities shows that is an entire function which has as zeros the non-trivial zeros of the zeta function, and is invariant under the transformation s - 1-s . This invariance and the fact that the function is real for real s implies that it is also real on the critical line s = 1 2 + it , t real. On this line s = 1 2 + it , . The first term in this last equation is always negative. The second term, denoted Z(t), is real and has the same zeros as the zeta function at 1 2 + it , t real. Thus locating zeros on the critical line of the (complex) zeta function reduces to locating zeros on the real line of the real function Z(t). The Z(t) term in the previous equation may be expressed where . For computational purposes, the expansion is used. This function converges very rapidly for t at all large. The function Z(t) is typically the object of study for locating zeros of the zeta function on the critical line and verifying the Riemann Hypothesis . The Z(t) Plotter Sorry, but the applet doesn't want to run for some reason The applet to the left is a real time plot of t vs. Z(t) for t 100 . With this little tool you can view the behaviour of Z(t) and spot its zeros visually, not to mention entertain yourself by watching the seemingly random oscillations of the curve. The applet should work fine for t up to 10,000,000 or so, though it is much smoother and faster for smaller ( ~100,000 ) values of t . Even for t around 1,000,000,000 the applet does the right thing, though the animation reduces to a sequence of snapshots. A more serious consideration is that the numerical accuracy is questionable at these large t values. Notice that as you try larger values of t , say t = 1,000,000 or so, the density of the zeros increases. The tic marks on the t -axis are called Gram Points, which are by definition points at which the theta function takes on integral multiples of pi. These also increase in density with increasing t , and for the most part, the zeros of Z(t) alternate with the Gram points. This alternation of zeros with Gram points is key to verifying the Riemann Hypothesis . The algorithm used to compute Z(t) is called the Riemann-Siegel formula, after B. Riemann who first discovered though did not publish it, and C. Siegel (1896-1981) who finally deciphered Riemann's notes and published the result in the 1930's. This algorithm is quite efficient relative to other known methods, requiring order t1 2 operations to compute each value of Z(t) . Prior to Siegel's rediscovery, the most popular method was Euler-Maclaurin Summation which requires order t operations per evaluation of Z(t) . One interesting fact about the Z(t) curve is that the absence of a zero between consecutive local extrema would signal a counter-example to the Riemann Hypothesis (RH). Occasionally the curve very nearly fails to cross the t -axis before changing direction, offering a tantalizing suggestion that perhaps RH is false. Take a look at t = 17143.8 for example. This near failure of RH is known as Lehmer's Phenomenon. About the Applet I've tried to write the Java code using only JDK 1.0 classes and methods so that it works on most browsers, in particular the older ones. The decimal formatting is still kind of iffy, and there is some odd behaviour when you zoom or change t values on the fly, but otherwise it works ok. If the applet does not work for you, please drop me a note and tell me what browser you're using and what kind of errors you're getting. The applet seems to work much more smoothly in the Java Appletviewer than within a browser. If you have this tool, try viewing this web page in it using for eg: [prompt%] appletviewer http: www.this.web.page (in Unix Linux anyway). Verifying the Riemann Hypothesis Basic Strategy Since there are infinitely many non-trivial zeros of the zeta function , there is no way you can verify computationally that they all lie on the critical line . You can, however, verify the validity of the Riemann Hypothesis in large bounded subsets of the critical strip . The standard strategy for verifying the Riemann Hypothesis up to height T is to count all of the zeros of Z(t) for 0 t T ; and compute an upper bound on the number of zeros of the zeta function which lie in the critical strip and have imaginary part between zero and T . If the results from these two steps match, then RH holds up to height T . Before going too much into detail, you may want to have a look at the Z(t) Plotter Java applet which will help with the explanations to follow. Counting Zeros and Gram's Law The approach to counting zeros of Z(t) is that used by J.Gram (1850-1916) based on a very simple observation. Recall that . Gram observed that the real part of the zeta function on the critical line tends to be positive, while the imaginary part alternates more regularly between positive and negative values. That means that the sign of Z(t) must be opposite to that of the sine function most of the time, so one would expect the zeros of Z(t) to alternate with zeros of the sine term, i.e. when theta takes on an integer multiples of pi. This turns out to hold most of the time and is known as Gram's Law. (a law which is violated infinitely often though!) The values t where theta takes on integer multiples of pi are called Gram points, and Gram's Law is the statement that zeros of Z(t) alternate with the Gram points. Define the nth Gram point gn to be the (unique) point such that . Then Gram's Law is . Gram points which satisfy Gram's Law are called good, while those that don't are called bad (not surprisingly.) A Gram block is an interval [gn, gn+k) such that gn and gn+k are good Gram points and all Gram points inside the interval are bad. The exercise of counting zeros then reduces to that of counting all Gram points where Gram's law is satisfied, and adding to that the count of zeros inside each Gram block. With this process you don't have to locate zeros exactly, you just have to compute Z(t) accurately enough to show that it changes sign. Turing to the Rescue Now that you've located a few million zeros of the zeta function on the critical line, you would like to show somehow that these are in fact all of the zeros in the region 0 t T you examined. Enter A.Turing (1912-1954). Turing devised an ingenious method of determining the number of roots in the critical strip up to height T . Define S(T) by where N(T) is the number of roots in the critical strip between zero and T . Turing showed that . This is useful because if gm is a Gram point where Gram's law is satisfied, it turns out that S(gm) must be an even integer. This integral forces |S(gm)| 2 under the right conditions, from which |S(gm)| = 0 and . Showing that |S(gm)| 2 is not a lot of work, though the argument used is a bit technical. An interesting property of the argument is that it relies solely on values of Z(t) for t real. In other words, under the right circumstances, counting the number of zeros of the zeta function in the critical strip to height T depends only on its values on the critical line. Some Results To date the methods above have been used to verify RH to large heights of the critical strip. Van de Lune et al. have shown that the first one and half billion non-trivial zeros lie on the critical line, while A. Odlyzko has demonstrated the validity of RH in large regions of the critical strip near the 1020 th zero. As part of my Master's project, I used these methods on my PC to show that the first twelve million or so zeros of the zeta function lie on the critical line (big surprise!)

The Riemann Hypothesis
A short article with some grahpical and numerical evidence in the critical strip.
riemann The Riemann Hypothesis is currently the most famous unsolved problem in mathematics. Like the Goldbach Conjecture (all positive even integers greater than two can be expressed as the sum of two primes), it seems true, but is very hard to prove. I did some playing around with the Riemann Hypothesis, and I'm convinced it is true. My observations follow. The Zeta Function Euler showed that z(2) = p2 6 , and solved all the even integers up to z(26). See the Riemann Zeta Function in the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics for more information on this. It is possible for the exponent s to be Complex Number (a + b I). A root of a function is a value x such that f(x) = 0. The Riemann Hypothesis : all nontrivial roots of the Zeta function are of the form (1 2 + b I). Mathematica can plot the Zeta function for complex values, so I plotted the absolute value of z(1 2 + b I) and z(1 3 + b I). |z(1 2 + b I)| for b = 0 to 85. Note how often the function dips to zero. |z(1 3 + b I)| for b = 0 to 85. Note how the function never dips to zero. The first few zeroes of |z(1 2 + b I)| are at b = 14.1344725, 21.022040, 25.010858, 30.424876, 32.935062, and 37.586178. Next, I tried some 3D plots, looking dead on at zero. The plot of the function looked like this: Plot3D[Abs[Zeta[y+ x I]],{x,5,200},{y,.4,.6},PlotRange - {0,.1}, PlotPoints - 200, ViewPoint- {200,.5,0}] It seems like |z(a + b I)| is bounded away from zero when a doesn't equal 1 2. Based on these plots and a few others, I'm fairly certain the Riemann Hypothesis is true. The person who actually proves the hypothesis will be as famous as Andrew Wiles (he proved Fermat's Last Thereom). By the analytic convergence theorem, we can get the slope: z'(x + q I) = . Is it true that Re(z'(x + q I)) 0 for x 1 2 and Re(z'(x + q I)) 0 for x 1 2 ? May 4 2002 -- The first ten billion zeroes are on the critical line, 1 2.
The Riemann Hypothesis
A short article by Kimon Spiliopoulos.
The Riemann Hypothesis The Riemann Hypothesis Riemann's Hypothesis was one of the 23 problems - milestones that David Hilbert suggested in 1900, at the 2nd International Conference on Mathematics in Paris, that they should define research in mathematics for the new century (and indeed, it is not an exaggeration to say that modern mathematics largely come from the attempts to solve these 23 problems). It is the most famous open question today, especially after the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem . The Riemann zeta function is of central importance in the study of prime numbers. In its first form introduced by Euler, it is a function of a real variable x: This series converges for every x 1 (for x=1 it is the non-corvergent harmonic series). Euler showed that this function can also be expressed as an infinite product which involves all prime numbers pn, n=1, : Riemann studied this function extensively and extended its definition to take complex arguments z. So the function bears his name. Of particular interest are the roots of : Trivial zeros are at z= -2, -4, -6, Nontrivial zeros are at z such that 0 Re(z) 1 and there are infinite ones. Infinitely many lie in particular on Re(z)=1 2 (proved in 1914 by the English number theorist Godfrey Hardy) There are no zeros for Re(z) 1. The case Re(z)=1 was proved in 1896 by Hadamard and de la Valle-Poussin and used in their proof of the Prime Number Theorem . Riemann conjectured that all nontrivial zeros are at Re(z)=1 2. Although this has been shown to be true for more than the first billion nontrivial zeros, the conjecture remains open. A proof would establish new results in number theory, for example on the distribution of primes. The fact that Riemann Hypothesis holds for billions of nontrivial zeros does not guarantee anything. As noted by I. Good and R. Churchhouse in 1968, in the theories of zeta function and of primes distribution, one frequently meets terms like log log x, a function which increases extremely slow. The first nontrivial root not on Re(1 2) might have an imaginary part y such that log log y is of the order say 10. Then y would be 1010,000, a definitely unreachable number, computationally.

While it was long believed that Riemann's hypothesis was the result of deep intuition on the part of Riemann , an examination of his papers by C. L. Siegel showed that Riemann had made detailed numerical calculations of small zeros of the Riemann zeta function to several decimal digits (Granville 2002; Borwein and Borwein 2003, p. 68). A more general statement known as the generalized Riemann hypothesis conjectures that neither the Riemann zeta function nor any Dirichlet L-series has a zero with real part larger than 1 2. The Riemann hypothesis has thus far resisted all attempts to prove it. Stieltjes (1885) published a note claiming to have proved the Mertens conjecture with , a result stronger than the Riemann hypothesis and from which it would have followed. However, the proof itself was never published, nor was it found in Stieltjes papers following his death, so it is strongly believed his claim to have possessed such a proof was erroneous (Derbyshire 2004, pp. 160-161 and 250). In the late 1940s, H. Rademacher's erroneous proof of the falsehood of Riemann's hypothesis was reported in Time magazine, even after a flaw in the proof had been unearthed by Siegel (Borwein and Bailey 2003, p. 97; Conrey 2003). de Branges has written a number of papers discussing a potential approach to the generalized Riemann hypothesis (de Branges 1986, 1992, 1994) and in fact claiming to prove the generalized Riemann hypothesis (de Branges 2003, 2004; Boutin 2004), but no actual proofs seem to be present in these papers. Furthermore, Conrey and Li (1998) prove a counterexample to de Branges's approach, which essentially means that theory developed by de Branges is not viable. Proof of the Riemann hypothesis is number 8 of Hilbert's problems and number 1 of Smale's problems . In 2000, the Clay Mathematics Institute ( http: www.claymath.org ) offered a $1 million prize ( http: www.claymath.org millennium Rules_etc ) for proof of the Riemann hypothesis. Interestingly, disproof of the Riemann hypothesis (e.g., by using a computer to actually find a zero off the critical line ), does not earn the $1 million award. The Riemann hypothesis has been computationally tested and found to be true for the first 200000001 zeros (Brent et al. 1982, which covered zeros in the region ). More recently, S. Wedeniwski uses ZetaGrid, an internal computer cluster of IBM Corporation combined with external computations compiled on http: www.zetagrid.net to prove that the first nontrivial zeros of the lie on the critical line. This computation verifies that the Riemann hypothesis is true at least for all . The Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to the statement that all the zeros of the Dirichlet eta function (a.k.a. the alternating zeta function) (1) falling in the critical strip lie on the critical line . Wiener showed that the prime number theorem is literally equivalent to the assertion that the Riemann zeta function has no zeros on (Hardy 1999, pp. 34 and 58-60; Havil 2003, p. 195). In 1914, Hardy proved that an infinite number of values for can be found for which and (Havil 2003, p. 213). However, it is not known if all nontrivial roots satisfy . Selberg (1942) showed that a positive proportion of the nontrivial zeros lie on the critical line , and Conrey (1989) this to at least 40% (Havil 2003, p. 213). Andr Weil proved the Riemann hypothesis to be true for field functions (Weil 1948, Eichler 1966, Ball and Coxeter 1987). In 1974, Levinson (1974ab) showed that at least 1 3 of the roots must lie on the critical line (Le Lionnais 1983), a result which has since been sharpened to 40% (Vardi 1991, p. 142). It is known that the zeros are symmetrically placed about the line . This follows from the fact that, for all complex numbers , 1. and the complex conjugate are symmetrically placed about this line. 2. From the definition (1), the Riemann zeta function satisfies , so that if is a zero, so is , since then . It is also known that the nontrivial zeros are symmetrically placed about the critical line , a result which follows from the functional equation and the symmetry about the line . For if is a nontrivial zero, then is also a zero (by the functional equation), and then is another zero. But and are symmetrically placed about the line , since , and if , then . The Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to , where is the de Bruijn-Newman constant (Csordas et al. 1994). It is also equivalent to the assertion that for some constant , (2) where is the logarithmic integral and is the prime counting function (Wagon 1991). Another equivalent form states that (3) where (4) where is the fractional part (Balazard and Saias 2000). By modifying a criterion of Robin (1984), Lagarias (2000) showed that the Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to the statement that (5) for all , with equality only for , where is a harmonic number and is the divisor function (Havil 2003, p. 207). The plots above show these two functions (left plot) and their difference (right plot) for up to 1000. There is also a finite analog of the Riemann hypothesis concerning the location of zeros for function fields defined by equations such as (6) This hypothesis, developed by Weil, is analogous to the usual Riemann hypothesis. The number of solutions for the particular cases , (3,3), (4,4), and (2,4) were known to Gauss . According to Fields medalist Enrico Bombieri, "The failure of the Riemann hypothesis would create havoc in the distribution of prime numbers" (Havil 2003, p. 205). In Ron Howard's 2001 film A Beautiful Mind , John Nash (played by Russell Crowe) is hindered in his attempts solve the Riemann hypothesis by the medication he is taking to treat his schizophrenia.

Riemann's Hypothesis
A beginners guide by Jon Perry.
Riemann's Hypothesis Riemann's Hypothesis [Home] [Other Maths] [Riemann's Hypothesis Part 2] My proof of Riemann's Hypothesis Riemann's Hypothesis Euler's zeta function Euler's zeta function, which forms the basis for Riemann's Hypothesis, is the sum of the integers from 1 to infinity raised to a complex power. It is written: This converges for complex s such that the real part of s is greater than 1, but for s =1 it diverges, and is not considered to be valid on this region. Riemann's zeta function Riemann had the idea to extend this function into the whole complex plane, which he managed to do, except for a simple pole at s=1. He achieved this through a process called analytic continuation. Analytic continuation is whereby an alternative function is used that behaves exactly as the original function in the domain of the original function, and continues the function outside of the original domain. This is the idea in defining i2=-1. The previous definition of square root did not allow for square root of negative numbers, and i is the analytic continuation of the square root function. With analytic continuation, we can have different expressions for the zeta function, but they all behave the same. This is similar to writing either sigma(1 ns), and its equivalents pi2 6, and product(1-1 pis). Each one is a different expression, but they all have the same value. As said before, Riemann extended the zeta function so that it is valid in almost all of the complex plane. As it happens, this is not entirely necessary, as it has been proved that any zeroes of the zeta function (which is what we are interested in) lie in a 'critical strip', which is the area where 0 s 1. An example of extending the zeta function into s 0 is: {x} is the fractional part of x, i.e. x-[x], where [x] is the integer part of x. The derivation of this is fairly lengthy - see [here] Another approach is to consider an alternating zeta function: We can split this into two sums, one sums the zeta function, and the other removes the negative terms. After re-arranging this, we arrive at: As the alternating zeta function converges for s 0, we have found a new method for expressing the original zeta function. This new zeta function has zeroes, and these form the basis for the Riemann Hypothesis. There are trivial zeroes at -2,-4,-6, etc,... and the rest lie on the line s=1 2 + it. Or so it is thought. To solve Riemann's Hypothesis is therefore to prove that all the non-trivial zeroes do lie on this line. This has been validated for large numbers of zeroes, and it is also known that 40% of the zeroes do lie on this line, and that there are an infinite number of zeroes. Riemann originally extended the domain of the zeta function to the whole complex plane (except for a simple pole at 1), but it suffices to extend it to s 0. (we are only interested in s=1 2 - it has been proved that all the zeroes lie in the 'critical strip' 0 s 1) Finding zeroes Finding the zeroes of the zeta function is a complex task, and requires numerical techniques. The whole scenario boils down to a waveform that travels along the s=1 2 line. It has peaks and troughs, and if all the zeroes are on the critical line (s=1 2), then the peaks and troughs will always be on opposite sides of the critical line. zeta(s) defines a function that takes complex values and returns complex values. A zero therefore occurs when the returned value has both real and imaginary parts zero. It is possible for either the real or imaginary part to be equal to zero by itself, but these 'semi-zeroes' are of less interest. [picture generated with UBASIC. Download UBASIC ] This graph is demonstrating where the zeta zeroes are. The vertical axis is the real numbers, and 0.0 is representing the s=1 2 line, although the rest of the numbers do not make much sense (the zeta equation is very difficult to handle, and numerous transforms are made on the data to achieve usable results). The horizontal axis is the imaginary axis. So, Riemann's zeta function has zeroes at 14.13 (to 2dp - it is conjectured that all zeta zeroes are irrational), 21.02, 25.01, and so on. The complete list of zeta zeroes to 100, and with a higher dp count, is: Zero number Imaginary component 1 14.1347251417347 2 21.0220396387715 3 25.0108575801457 4 30.4248761258595 5 32.9350615877392 6 37.5861781588256 7 40.9187190121475 8 43.3270732809150 9 48.005150881167 10 49.773832477672 11 52.9703214777144 12 56.446247697063 13 59.3470440026022 14 60.8317785246098 15 65.112544048081 16 67.0798105294942 17 69.546401711174 18 72.0671576744819 19 75.7046906990839 20 77.14484006887479 21 79.3373750202493 22 82.9103808540860 23 84.735492980517 24 87.425274613125 25 88.809111207634 26 92.491899270550 27 94.6513440405198 28 95.8706342282453 29 98.8311942181937 Also note that the zeroes are reflected in the x-axis, i.e. if s+it is a zero, then s-it is also. Possible failure of the Riemann Hypothesis Riemann's hypothesis would fail if a single counterexample was found, so what is needed is a proof that this: never happens (i.e. a peak or trough happens out of sync). There are several close calls, where a peak or trough is very close to the x-axis, but to date no complete miss. Transforming the complex plane This is an image of the points in the [0,1]*[0,20] region (R*Ri) after having being transformed by the zeta function: We can clearly see dots in the region of (0,0). Click [here] for more images of the zeta function. Deriving the prime numbers from the zeta zeroes The relationship between the zeta zeroes and the prime numbers is not immediately obvious. To establish a connection, we need to consider the psi function introduced by Chebyshev. lambda(x) is logp if x=pk, and 0 otherwise. Essentially, psi(x) represents the number of primes and prime powers less than x. psi(x) is asymtopic to x, but the important feature is that the zeroes of the zeta equation can be used to generate accurate approximatations to the psi0(x) formula. psi0(x) is similar to psi(x), but is defined differently at discontinuites. Each rho represents a zeta zero. As more zeroes are used, the RHS tends to psi0(x). Note that rho covers all the zeroes, i.e. those with a positive and negative imaginary component. As these form complex conjugates, the imaginary part of psi0(x) is always zero. A picture of Riemann Please address questions comments suggestions to : Jon Perry

Prime Lists FAQ e-mail list Titans Prime Links Submit primes Summary: When studying the distribution of prime numbers Riemann extended Euler's zeta function (defined just for s with real part greater than one) to the entire complex plane (sans simple pole at s = 1). Riemann noted that his zeta function had trivial zeros at -2, -4, -6, ... and that all nontrivial zeros were symmetric about the line Re(s) = 1 2. The Riemann hypothesis is that all nontrivial zeros are on this line. In 1901 von Koch showed that the Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to: The Riemann Hypothesis: Euler studied the sum for integers s 1 (clearly (1) is infinite). Euler discovered a formula relating (2k) to the Bernoulli numbers yielding results such as and . But what has this got to do with the primes? The answer is in the following product taken over the primes p (also discovered by Euler): Euler wrote this as Riemann later extended the definition of (s) to all complex numbers s (except the simple pole at s=1 with residue one). Euler's product still holds if the real part of s is greater than one. Riemann derived the functional equation of the Riemann zeta function: where the gamma function (s) is the well-known extension of the factorial function ( (n+1) = n! for non-negative integers n): (Here the integral holds if the real part of s is greater than one and the product holds for all complex numbers s.) The Riemann zeta function has the trivial zeros at -2, -4, -6, ... (the poles of (s 2)). Using the Euler product (with the functional equation) it is easy to show that all the other zeros are in the critical strip of non-real complex numbers with 0 = Re(s) = 1, and that they are symmetric about the critical line Re(s)=1 2. The unproved Riemann hypothesis is that all of the nontrivial zeros are actually on the critical line. In 1986 it was shown that the first 1,500,000,001 nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function do indeed have real part one-half [ VTW86 ]. Hardy proved in 1915 that an infinite number of the zeros do occur on the critical line and in 1989 Conrey showed that over 40% of the zeros in the critical strip are on the critical line [ Conrey89 ]. However, there is still a chance that the Riemann hypothesis is false. In August of 2001, Sebastian Wedeniwski began ZetaGrid , a distributed project that has greatly extended these computations (take a look, you might want to help out). In 1900 Hilbert listed proving or disproving this hypothesis as one of the most important unsolved problems confronting modern mathematics. When Hadamard and de la Vallee Poussin proved the prime number theorem , they actually showed for some positive constant a. The error term depended on what was known about the zero-free region of the Riemann zeta function within the critical strip. As our knowledge of the size of this region increases, the error term decreases. In 1901 von Koch showed that the Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to: Another prime page by Chris K.

The Music of the Primes
A popular article by Marcus du Sautoy on the Riemann Hypothesis; Science Spectra, Issue 11.
1.---When the British mathematician Andrew Wiles told the world about his proof of the Last Theorem of the seventeenth century French lawyer, Pierre de Fermat, it looked as if the Holy Grail had been grasped. Fermat's Last Theorem has often been called the greatest unsolved riddle of mathematics. But many mathematicians would argue that this name belongs rather to an idea first put forward in the middle of the nineteenth century by the German mathematician Bernhard Riemann: The Riemann Hypothesis. 2.---PRIME NUMBERS It remains unresolved but, if true, the Riemann Hypothesis will go to the heart of what makes so much of mathematics tick: the prime numbers. These indivisible numbers are the atoms of arithmetic. Every number can be built by multiplying prime numbers together. The primes have fascinated generations of mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike, yet their properties remain deeply mysterious. Whoever proves or disproves the Riemann Hypothesis will discover the key to many of their secrets and this is why it ranks above Fermat as the theorem for whose proof mathematicians would trade their soul with Mephistopheles. 3.---Although the Riemann Hypothesis has never quite caught on in the public imagination as Mathematics' Holy Grail, prime numbers themselves do periodically make headline news. The media love to report on the latest record for the biggest prime number so far discovered. In November 1996 the Great Internet Prime Search announced their discovery of the current record, a prime number with 378,632 digits. But for mathematicians, such news is of only passing interest. Over two thousand years ago Euclid proved that there will be infinitely many such news stories, for the primes never run dry. 4.---Rather mathematicians like to look for patterns, and the primes probably offer the ultimate challenge. When you look at a list of them stretching off to infinity, they look chaotic, like weeds growing through an expanse of grass representing all numbers. For centuries mathematicians have striven to find rhyme and reason amongst this jumble. Is their any music that we can hear in this random noise? Is there a fast way to spot that a particular number is prime? Once you have one prime, how much further must you count before you find the next one on the list? These are the sort of questions that have tantalized generations. 5.---Last year we celebrated the centenary of perhaps the deepest fact known to date about the prime numbers since Euclid. George Friedrich Bernard Riemann (1826-1866) Proved by the French mathematician Hadamard and the Belgian mathematician de la Vallee Poussin, the Prime Number Theorem tells us how many primes we should expect to find between 1 and any number N. For example in the first 100 numbers, it says that there should be 25 primes. But in the first million, only one in fifteen should be prime. It therefore gives the probability that a number will be a prime and iy further says that as the numbers get bigger this probability gets smaller. So the primes thin out, getting rarer and rarer. Euclid guarantees that there will always be more primes to find. On the other hand, the Prime Number Theorem tells you how rare they become. 6.---The theorem gives us a formula for how many primes we should expect to find less than any number N. But it is not an exact formula. And this inexactness is at the heart of the Riemann Hypothesis. There is an analogy here with coin tossing. If I toss a coin a million times, then with a fair coin we should get half heads and half tails. But we don't expect to get exactly five hundred thousand heads. By the nature of this being a random process we will not be surprised by a variation of about one thousand either side of this number. 7.---The Riemann Hypothesis would say that looking for primes is rather like tossing a coin. We have a one hundred year old formula which tells us roughly how many primes we should expect to find. But we know that this is not an exact formula. Riemann predicted that the error term in this formula is the same as the error we expect to see when tossing coins making the primes look in some sense like a random process. So given a prime, to find the next prime on the list will be like waiting for the next head to appear when tossing a coin. Given that we can't expect an exact formula, this distribution of the primes conjectured by Riemann is as nice a one as we could hope for. 8.---The Riemann Hypothesis says that there aren't any mysterious patterns that we haven't already discovered among the primes. If it were false it would imply that there was some structure in the primes that we had missed over the centuries. 9.---To prove his prediction, Riemann showed that you need to move the goal posts and prove a result in a seemingly unrelated area called complex function theory. These strange connections are one of the great themes of mathematics. Riemann identified a function which encoded the structure of the primes. A function is like a computer - you feed it a number and it outputs another number. In Riemann's function, called the Riemann zeta function, you actually feed in two numbers which define the co-ordinates of points on a flat piece of paper. We can therefore get a graphical representation of this function as a surface sitting above the piece of paper where the height of the surface above a point on the paper is the output of the function at that point. Figure 1 and 2 show two different pictures of this surface. (The picture should actually live in four dimensions but the output of the function has been doctored for our humble 3-D consumption.) 10.---It was Riemann's great insight that the behaviour of prime numbers, by their nature discrete objects where you have to jump from one to the next, should be connected with a smooth continuous surface like the zeta function. Nevertheless they are inextricably linked. 11.---One of the important features of a function are those numbers where the function outputs zero. These are like the harmonics of your function. For example, if one remembers the picture of the sin or cosine functions that one learns in school, the picture oscillates outputting zero at regular intervals. 12.---For Riemann's zeta function, these harmonics have an extra significance for they describe the sound of the primes.Therefore anything you can say about these harmonics should tell you significant things about the prime numbers. As we have drawn our picture the peaks actually represent the zeros or harmonics. You might notice that these first few peaks all seem to lie in a straight line. Riemann predicted that in fact all the points at which this function is zero should lie in a straight line where one of the co-ordinates is always 1 2. What is rather startling is that this very regimented behaviour of the harmonics implies the coin-tossing nature of the primes. This is in fact the conjecture that Riemann originally proposed and what mathematicians refer to as the Riemann Hypothesis: the zeros of the Riemann zeta function lie on a straight line. 13.---What evidence is there then for this conjecture being true? Riemann's papers show that he had quite sophisticated methods to detect zeros which led him to his conjecture. Unfortunately many of his writing were destroyed so it is unknown how much Riemann actually knew. Perhaps we might find his own marginal comment of a wonderful proof to rival Fermat's historic tease. The famous Cambridge mathematician G.H. Hardy in the twenties proved that infinitely many of these zeros lie in a line. He almost went on to provide the Riemann Hypothesis with a story to equal Fermat's cryptic note in the margin. On a rough sea crossing fearing for his life, he sent a joke telegram saying that he had found a wonderful proof of the Hypothesis. The ship, however did not sink. 14.---Since the arrival of the supercomputer it has been possible to test the conjecture way beyond Riemann's wildest dreams. It is now known that the first one and a half billion zeros lie on this straight line. However such convincing evidence can be misleading. At ATT Bell Labs Andrew Odlyzko together with Hermann te Riele proved that a related conjecture was in fact false despite similar overwhelming evidence. Since there are known to be infinitely many zeros, the computer will never be able to tell us conclusively that they all lie in a straight line. Instead we must rely on human insight for a solution, a relief perhaps to those unnerved by the victory of IBM's Deeper Blue over the chess Grand Master Gary Kasparov. 15.---It may seem surprising to find a commercial organisation like ATT interested in the Riemann Hypothesis. However prime numbers are no longer just the play thing of the mathematician but hold the key to the world's finances. The codes that protect our credit card numbers when we send them across the internet depend on mathematical puzzles about prime numbers which at present are too difficult for us or a computer to crack. However the insight that a proof of the Riemann Hypothesis would give us about the primes could be enough to make the secrets of today, tomorrow's public property. That is why you find the likes of ATT research laboratories dedicating time and money to monitoring progress in the ivory towers of academia.

University of Bristol. Arithmetic of elliptic curves; special values of higher symmetric power L-functions. Publications.
Mark Watkins Mark Watkins Papers Page Curriculum Vitae Research Projects: 1. Experiment on the lattice distribution of rank 2 elliptic curves with prime conductor. In joint work with William Stein, I have created an enormously large database of elliptic curves. Using the recent work of Tom Womack on 4-descent, I plan to investigate the lattice distribution for the 2.1 million rank 2 curves with prime conductor. The recent work of Cremona, Prickett, and Siksek on saturation will also be used to certify that a Mordell-Weil basis has been found. Another data set to be investigated is that of rank 2 elliptic curves with absolute discriminant less than 100 million. This will hopefully be done in time for ANTS VII. 2. Special values of higher symmetric power L-functions of elliptic curves. Conjectures of Deligne and Bloch-Kato suggest that symmetric power L-function of elliptic curves should satisfy functional equations, and the special values they take should have arithmetic significance. My work on the modular degree can be seen as a large experiment regarding the symmetric square. Buhler, Schoen, and Top have done a similar investigation for the symmetric cube. Christophe Delaunay, Neil Dummigan, Phil Martin, and I plan to investigate higher symmetric powers. In particular, Martin has determined the proper Euler factor for symmetric powers at additive primes, and Delaunay has generic PARI code to compute special values. E-mail: watkins@math.psu.edu

Marek Wolf's home page Marek Wolf "... upon looking at prime numbers one has the feeling of being in the presence of one of the inexplicable secrets of creation." D.Zagier in Math. Intellig. 0 (1977), p.8, left column I am a theoretical physicist at the Institute of Theoretical Physics . In the late seventies I started working on strings and supersymmetry. This was my major field of interest until 1984, when I bought the famous ZX Spectrum computer (for less than 200$ !!!). Only then did I understand what good physics was. Immediately I turned from quantum field theory to fractals and chaos. Since Summer 1995 I am also interested in prime numbers, but I still believe that: Physics is Fun ! Curriculum vitae (look also here ) List of publications My favorite web sites e-mail: can be found here tel. (48 71) 3759-473, Below you can find my papers on the prime numbers: This figure presents the main results reported in the paper: Some Conjectures on the Gaps between Consecutive Primes (1.4 MB) Here is gzip-ed file: Download "conjectures.ps.gz" (420 kB) The more popular exposition of the above results is here: Unexpected Regularities in the Distribution of Prime Numbers (840 kB) Here is gzip-ed file: Download "primes.ps.gz" (260 kB) In the paper "Generalized Brun's constants" it is argued, that the sum of reciprocals of all consecutive primes separated by distance d is equal to 4c_2 d \prod_{p\mid d} {p-1\over p-2}. M.Wolf, Generalized Brun's constants (580 kB) Here is gzip-ed file: "brun_gen.ps.gz" (180 kB) In the paper "First Occurrence of a given gap between consecutive primes" the formula for the smallest prime such, that the next prime will be in the distance d is conjectured and compared with the results of the computer search: First Occurrence of a given gap between consecutive primes (200kB) Here is gzip-ed file: "firstocc.ps.gz" (68kB) On the similar subject you can read the paper by Thomas Nicely. In this paper the fractal structure on the set of prime numbers is described: Download On the Twin and Cousin Primes (0.5 MB) Here is gzip-ed file: "twins_ps.ps.gz" (110 kB) Download fig.1b (770 kB) Download fig.1c (1.3 MB) In this paper the analog of the Skewes number for twins is considered: An Analog of the Skewes Number for Twins (100 kB) Here (server in USA) you can find the paper "Jumping Champions" (at this web site in Poland) written by Andrew Odlyzko , Michael Rubinstein and me. It is about champions - the most often occuring gaps between consecutive primes. The most often occuring gaps are "primorials", i.e. products of consecutive primes. For example 6=2x3, 30=2x3x5, 210=2x3x5x7. If Dn denotes n-th champion Dn=2x3...xpn then they become most often occuring gap at N(n) which very roughly are given in the table below. Because Andrew Odlyzko has the Erdos Number 1 , hence I have the Erdos Number 2 . This paper was described by Ian Stewart in the December 2000 issue of the Scientific American on p.106. My papers are reviewed here by Matthew Watkins. I recommend his web page as a source of many very interesting articles about primes, zeta function etc. Here is a link to the weekly newspaper KURIER PLUS , where the interview with me can be found. It is in Polish and deals with chaos, determinism, Plato, nature of mathematical theorems etc and was conducted by Elzbieta Kolakowska. The pdf file of the famous paper "A Proof that Euler Missed...

Kayaking Pictures ! Mathematics Papers: D4 Modular Forms , to appear in the American Journal of Mathematics. This paper discusses modular forms on two groups of type D4, examples of Langlands functoriality, an octonionic Jacquet-Langlands correspondence, and a Siegel-Weil type formula. Here is a preprint , also available on the ArXiv. The Fourier-Jacobi Map and Small Representations . There are two available versions of this paper. My Ph.D. thesis , which includes an introduction motivating the theory of small representations. This was supervised by Benedict Gross and Gordan Savin. This paper has been published in the AMS Journal of Representation Theory . The published version is considerably shorted than my Ph.D. thesis, since it is single-spaced and lacks an extensive introduction. The published article also lacks a few small errors typos that exist in the thesis. Icosahedral Galois Representations and Modular Forms . This was my undergraduate senior thesis . I perform some numerical computations to provide evidence that an even two-dimensional Galois representation of icosahedral type is associated to a Maass form. This was supervised by Andrew Wiles and Peter Sarnak. Eisenstein Series over a Quadratic Imaginary Field .

My thesis (in gzipped PostScipt) is available here . In a shorter version, it appeared in two parts in the 1999 volume of Acta Arithmetica (vol. 90). In 1998 99, I did the same for my Computer Science degree, supervised this time by Dr Hendrik-Jan Hoogeboom, and Dr Crit Cremers from the department of General Linguistics. This time, I was occupied with the Delilah system, developed by Cremers and Hijzelendoorn, which is a parsing system for the written Dutch language. The problem was firstly to relate the Delilah system to grammar formalisms currently studied in theoretical computer science, and secondly to estimate the time and space complexity of the parsing system.

CURRICULUM VITAE MARIAN VAJAITU Born: September 27, 1962, Colt, Romania. Address: Romanian Academy, P.O. Box. 1-764, R0-70700 Bucharest, Romania. Studies: I graduated from Department of Mathematics of Mathematics of the University of Bucharest in 1987. The title of Diploma Dissertation was "Riemann's zeta function and applications in Number Theory". The main lectures during this period are: two year a basic course in algebra, an year a basic course in real analysis, complex analysis (a semester), measure theory (a semester), two years a basic course in differential equations, an year of axiomatic and euclidean geometry, an year of differential geometry, an year of functional analysis, a supplementary year of algebra (number theory and groups theory), a course in Algebraic Geometry and one in Algebraic Topology. I studied some classical works in number theory, such as: - analytic number theory (from the books by Ingham, Eduards, Davenport, Titchmarsh, Halberstan, Baker, Bump). - algebraic number theory (from the books by Borevich and Shafarevich, H. Hasse and S. Lang). - valuations and the theory of algebraic functions (from the books by Schilling, Chevalley and Hasse). - class field theory (from the books by Hasse, Chevalley and Neurkirch). I participated also at the seminar of Number Theory lead by Professor N. Popescu devoted to algebraic number theory, analytic number theory, class field theory and theory of algebraic functions. Employment: 1987-1990 - Teacher at the High School at Petrosani, Romania (forced by the laws of former regime), since 1990 - Researcher at Institute of Mathematics, Bucharest, Romania. Fields of interest: Number theory with special interest in analytic number theory, algebraic numbers and functions, transcendental numbers, local class field theory, diofantine equations. Scientific activity: Working in the field of Number Theory, I obtained some results. Part of them are collected in some papers, from which I mention: A result dealing with some arithmetical conjectures: The conjecture of Graham " for every chain of integers 0 a_1 ... a_n" is solved for large numbers "n" by A. Zaharescu. Assuming the Riemann Hypothesis we proved that Graham's statement is true for any n\geq 10^70, in Journal of Number Theory, vol. 31, No. 1, january 1989. A problem of Selfridge which asks for the pairs (a, b) for which 2^a - 2^b | n^a - n^b for all n, INCREST preprint series in mathematics, No. 32 1989, by finding the 14 such pairs with a b. I have to say that we have seen that this problem was already solved by two (Chinese) mathematicians a few years ago. On the other hand in this preprint it is proved also that, more generally, under some simple assumptions, given a_1,...,a_k\in\ZZ^*, the set of (k + 1)-uples (\beta,(\alpha_1,...,\alpha_k )) such that \Sum_{i=1}^{i=k}(\aplha_i)\times(\beta)^{a_i} divides \Sum_{i=1}^{i=k}(\aplha_i)\times n^{a_i} for all n, is finite.

Galois (1811 - 1832). He considered the ancient problem of finding a general formula for the roots of a (separable) polynomial f(x) of any degree n. In the case n=2, there is the well-known formula for a quadratic equation, with its plus-minus symmetry. For n=3 and n=4 there are similar, but much more complicated formulas. Their symmetries also get more complicated. It was Galois' idea to consider the 'group' of these symmetries as an independent object. It can be defined without actually knowing a formula, as the group of permutations of the roots that preserve all algebraic relations (in modern terminology, the group of permutations of the roots that extend to automorphisms of the field generated by the roots). As first application, Galois proved that there is actually no general formula for n at least 5. B. Riemann (1826 -1866) linked the algebraic theory of Galois with analytic topological notions of monodromy and Riemann surfaces. This is Riemann's Existence Theorem. The basic idea is to study how the roots of a polynomial behave under a continuous deformation of the coefficients. Modern developments like the classification of finite simple groups and the advent of computer algebra have given new impetus to Galois theory. One manifestation was the Constructive Galois Theory Workshop, MSRI Berkeley, Oct. 99 Publications Books Groups as Galois Groups: An Introduction Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics 53, Cambridge University Press 1996.

Prime number theory.
Researches in Prime Number Theory RESEARCHES IN PRIME NUMBER THEORY : Retired after 30 years with IBM, I continue working on favorite math hobby : Prime Numbers. Just tenderfoot in creating a Web page. Lost in how to program on a P.C. but following a cure. Three main claims of originality in my sofar searches. 1. Algorithmic formula for smoothened pi(x), and hence for the prime number density. Results up to 10^9, with deviations less than 800. Still many questions ! details , table example 2. Ulam's spirals study : sound explanation as to why some "parallel to diagonal" rows display rather higher prime density. ulam expl (added November 17, 2004) 3. Contribution to the study of Goldbach conjecture : a formula and a table allowing to evaluate the number of Golbach partitions vs 2n. Goldbach text , Golbach partitions count evaluation table . If interested in more, e-mail to me : vdstrat@attglobal.net. (and I will reply or produce further pages). I owe acknowledgments to many prime number theory contributors discovered thru web pages : Chris Caldwell, Marek Wolf, Matthew Watkins, Thomas Nicely... (I will update as my memory recalls me).

The largest I found so far is 5*2^1320487 + 1 (397507 digits) At the time of the discovery (March 15, 2002) this was the largest known Proth-Prime and the 7th largest known prime. Other large Proth Primes I found: 5*2^1282755 + 1 (386148 digits) 5*2^819739 + 1 (246766 digits) On September 25, 2000 I found the world's largest known Woodall Prime: 667071*2^667071 - 1 (200815 digits) References: Chris Caldwell's The top twenty - WOODALL Primes , Another Prime page by Chris K. Caldwell Yves Gallot's page The Chronology of Prime Number Records On 1999 April, 23 10 Palindromic Primes in Arithmetic Progression have been found. (Here I was a member of the search team.) References: Patrick DeGeest's page Palindromic Primes , 1999 May On 1999 September, 28 8 Primes in *quadratic* Progression have been found. (A sequence of seven Pythagorean triangles, where (i) the lengths of the hypotenuse and one leg of each triangle are primes, and (ii) the hypotenuse is the shorter leg of the next triangle in the chain.) (Here I was also a member of the search team.) With Tony Forbes program MFAC.EXE I was searching for a factor of MM61, the Double-Mersenne Number 2^(2^61 - 1) - 1. Some years ago I participated in Paul Zimmermann' s ECMNET I tried to factorize some of the so-called Cunningham composites with ECM (Elliptic curve method). I also participated in GIMPS (Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search) There are lots of unused (idle) cpu cycles to spare, and I'm investing them in science !

My main interest is in the theory of L-functions; these are analytic objects which encode number theoretic data such as primes, class numbers of fields etc. A fundamental problem in the area is the Riemann hypothesis which predicts that the non-trivial zeros of L-functions all lie on a straight line. Two other significant questions concern the order of vanishing of L-functions at the central point, and the growth of L-functions inside the critical strip. My work is motivated by these questions: for example, Conrey and I recently exhibited the first infinite family of L-functions having no non-trivial real zeros. Some of my papers relating to these issues are 1. (with Conrey), Invent. Math. (150) pages 1-44 (2002). 2. Annals of Math. 152 (2000) 447-488. 3. (with Granville), The distribution of values of L(1,chi_d) Geometric and Functional Analysis, to appear. Preprint available on ArXiV Understanding the behaviour of L-functions can lead to the solution of simply stated number theoretic questions. For example Ono and I (Invent Math 130, 415-454) showed how the Riemann hypothesis for certain L-functions can be used to resolve a question of Ramanujan about which integers may be represented as x^2+y^2 +10z^2. In addition to L-functions I am also very interested in questions on primes and multiplicative functions; see my work with Montgomery (Beyond pair correlation, available on ArXiV) and my work with Granville (Ann. of Math., 153, 407-470). I am also interested in attractive problems in elementary combinatorial number theory, although I have not worked in this area recently.

Richert, Hans-Egon
Obituary from Universitaet Ulm.
Died: Prof. Dr. Hans-Egon Richert University of Ulm Faculty of Mathematics and Economics Faculty Home Page Infos Forum zu Wirtschaftsmathematik Press Releases Links Mathematics Local Webservers Died: Prof. Dr. Hans-Egon Richert Deutsch On the 25th of November 1993, Professor Dr. Hans-Egon Richert died in Blaustein near Ulm, Germany, after a long and severe illness. Richert held a chair of Mathematics at the University of Ulm from 1972 until his retirement as an emeritus professor in 1991. Richert was born 1924 in Hamburg and was raised there. He had to complete high school at a private institution after being expelled from the public school in the period of the Third Reich for "anglophile leanings". In 1946, at last back in Hamburg after the war and military service, he could begin his studies of mathematics. He obtained his diploma after eight terms and his PhD only one year later. When his mentor, Professor Max Deuring, accepted a position in Gttingen, the young Richert joined him as an assistant and obtained the venia legendi there in 1954. Soon after he was put in charge of one of the best mathematical libraries in Germany. After holding a temporary chair in Gttingen he was offered a newly created chair at the University of Marburg. In that time of vigorous development of the entire university system, Richert contributed in an essential way to shaping the Marburg Mathematical Institute, and, of course, he devoted his special love and attention to the library. From 1969 on, emotion held sway over reason in daily academic life in German universities, and especially so in Marburg. He was therefore pleased to accept in 1972 a chair at the young University of Ulm. His professorship here was the second one in the Mathematics Department, after that of Alexander Peyerimhoff. There was again much need for development. Science had priority for Richert, teaching as well as research. Those who knew him from committee meetings recall that Richert spoke only when it was really necessary. He used to cut short a tedious discussion with a few well chosen and constructive - but never offensive - words. He also participated in reasonable administrative activities: in 1974 75 he served his university as Prorektor, then as a member of the unbeloved room allocation board, which in effect had to allocate shortages, and he acted for almost twenty years as chairman of the examination committee, an office that he administered unbureaucratically and always in the interest of the students. Richert's field of research was Analytic Number Theory. He made important contributions to additive prime number theory, Dirichlet series, Riesz summability, the multiplicative analog of the Erds-Fuchs theorem, estimates of the number of non-isomorphic abelian groups and bounds for exponential sums for use, e. g. in estimating the error term of the prime number theorem. From about 1965 on he focussed his research increasingly on sieve methods. Among other things he put the proof of Chen's p+P_2 theorem into readable form. An intensive research collaboration developed between Richert and Heini Halberstam, motivated by their common interest in sieves, and lasted for the rest of his life. The monograph on Sieve Methods that they coauthored immediately became the indispensable basis for research of many number theorists. Also, Richert's name was long associated with the best estimate for the Dirichlet divisor problem. For many years he was one of the chairmen of the Oberwolfach meetings on Analytic Number Theory. The very high esteem he enjoyed in the mathematical community is reflected by the many invitations he received from mathematical institutions abroad, among others the University of Illinois at Urbana and the Tata Institute in Bombay. His life was not confined to mathematics: Richert was also a stimulating conversational partner on many different subjects. He enjoyed exploring foreign countries and keeping records of his trips on film and tape, a pursuit that he followed with the same intensity as his science whenever time allowed. In 1991 Professor Richert had to retire from his strenuous teaching duties. It is sad that he was not granted the long and fruitful period of retirement that he was looking forward to. With the passing of Hans-Egon Richert we lose a treasured colleague and a researcher of international reputation.

[ TEX file ] [ DVI file ] A Brief Description of Work so far Branching Laws for representations of Real and p-adic groups: Many problems in representation theory involve understanding how a representation of a group decomposes when restricted to a subgroup. Situations which involve multiplicity one phenomenon in which either the trivial representation, or some other representation of the subgroup appears with multiplicity at most one is specially useful. To cite a few examples, the theory of spherical functions and Whittaker models depends on such a multiplicity one phenomenon. The Clebsch-Gordon theorem about tensor product of representations of SU(2) has been very useful both in Physics and Mathematics. Many of my initial papers have been about finding such multiplicity one situations for infinite dimensional representations of real and $p$-adic groups. The results are expressed in terms of the arithmetic information which goes in parameterising representations, the so called Langlands parameters . In particular, the Clebsch-Gordon theorem was generalised by me for infinite dimensional representations of real and $p$-adic GL(2). Several papers, some written in collaboration with B.H.Gross, point out to the importance of the so called epsilon factors in these branching laws. The papers [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [9], [11], [14] belong to this theme. These works have implication for the global theory of automorphic forms. There are many parallels between global period integrals, expressed in many situations as special value of $L$-functions, and local branching laws expressed in terms of epsilon factors. The paper [15] studies the question of when a representation of $G(K)$ has a $G(k)$-invariant vector for $K$ a quadratic extension of $k$ for $k$ either a finite or a $p$-adic field. In the $p$-adic case, this was done only for division algebras in [15]. I have used the methods of this paper to prove a conjecture of Jacquet about distinguished representations of $GL_n$ and $U_n$ in the case when $K$ is a unramified quadratic extension of $k$ in [25]. Lusztig has followed up the theme of [15] in his recent paper in the Electronic J. of the AMS. I have just finished writing a paper [33] with Jeff. Adler in which we prove several multiplicity 1 theorems; in particular we show that an irreducible representation of $GSp(2n)$ when restricted to $Sp(2n)$ decomposes with mutiplicity 1 for $p$-adic fields. Weil Representations: Generalising the classical construction of theta functions, Weil representations provide one of the few general methods of constructing representations of groups over real and $p$-adic groups, as well as automorphic forms. The relation of this construction of representations to the Langlands parametrisation is still not fully understood. I have written two papers dealing with this question in which I refine some conjectures of Jeff Adams on the Langlands parameters of representations obtained via the Weil construction, thus making rather precise conjectures about the behaviour of the theta correspondence for groups of similar size. I have also done some work on the $K$-type of the Weil representation, and also on the character formula for the Weil representation. Papers [7], [19] as well as the expository paper [38] containing some new results too, belong to this theme. Representations of division algebras and of Galois groups of local fields: Generalising local class field theory, Langlands has conjectured a correspondence between irreducible representations of $GL(n)$ or of a division algebra of index $n$ to $n$ dimensional representations of the Galois group of the local field. This correspondence has recently been established by Harris, Taylor and Henniart. The correspondence preserves self-dual representations. Self-dual representations are of two kinds: symplectic and orthogonal. The question is: how does the Langlands correspondence behave on these two kinds of self-dual representations. Based on considerations of Poincare duality on the middle dimensional cohomology of a certain rigid analytic space, Dinakar Ramakrishnan and I conjecture that a representation of division algebra is orthogonal if and only if the associated representation of the Galois group is symplectic. The conjecture was made in [10]. The paper [14] was also motivated by its consideration. In [33] with Ramakrishnan we show how this conjecture is a consequence of `functoriality', and since the functorial lift between classical groups and $GL(n)$ is now known in many cases, we are able to prove the conjecture in [34] for those cases when the parameter is symplectic. Self-dual representations of finite and $p$-adic groups : For a compact connected Lie group it is a theorem due to Malcev that an irreducible, self-dual representation carries an invariant symmetic or skew-symmetric bilinear form depending on the action of a certain element in the center of the group. We have generalised this result to finite groups of Lie type in [13] and to $p$-adic groups in [17]. These results are, however, proved only for generic representations. These results provide an answer to a question raised by Serre. Kirillov Whittaker models : In the work [20] done with A. Raghuram, we develop Kirillov theory for irreducible admissible representations of $GL_2(D)$ where $D$ is a division algebra over a non-Archimedean local field. This work is in close analogy with the work of Jacquet-Langlands done in the case when $D$ is a field, and realises any irreducible admissible representation of $GL_2(D)$ on a space of functions of $D^*$ with values in what may be called the space of degenerate Whittaker models which is the largest quotient of the representation on which the unipotent radical of the minimal parabolic which is isomorphic to $D$ acts via a non-trivial character of $D$. Paper [22] studies this space of degenerate Whittaker models for finite fields obtaining a rather pretty result about the space of degenerate Whittaker model for a cuspidal representation of $GL_{2n}({\Bbb F})$ with respect to the $(n,n)$ parabolic with unipotent radical $M_n({\Bbb F})$. In paper [40] in the conference proceedings of a conference at the Tata Institute on Automorphic forms, I elaborate on a conjecture with B. Gross which gives a very precise structure for the space of degenerate Whittaker models on $GL_2(D)$ when $D$ is a quaternion division algebra. There is also a proposal in this paper to interpret triple product epsilon factors (for $GL(2)$) in terms of intertwining operators. Modular forms: There is a well known theorem of Deligne about estimates on the Fourier coefficients of modular forms. In the paper [12] with C. Khare, we study whether the converse is true, i.e. if given finitely many algebraic integers satisfying Deligne bounds, there exists an eigenform of Hecke operators with these algebraic integers as Fourier coefficients. One simple case of this problem is solved by an application of Wiles's theorem about the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture. Tate Cycles: In paper [18] with Kumar Murty, we parametrise Tate cycles on products of two Hilbert modular surfaces in terms of Hilbert modular forms, including the precise information about the field of rationality. Representations of finite groups of Lie type: I have worked on some aspects of representation theory of finite groups of Lie type with my student Nilabh Sanat, and we have written a paper [27] together. This paper decomposes an irreducible cuspidal representation of a classical group restricted to its maximal unipotent subgroup as an alternating sum of certain explicit unipotent representations. Other works : I have a short note [6] in which I give a proof of the analogue of Bezout's theorem for abelian varieties: any two subvarieties of complementary dimensions in a simple abelian variety intersect. When the paper was written, I did not know that the theorem was due to W. Barth, but the proof presented in [6] was different anyway. L. Merel has proved an important theorem stating that the order of torsion on elliptic curves over a number field are bounded independent of the elliptic curve and the field, and depends only on the degree of the field. However, there are still no good bounds. In an attempt to see what might be the best bound, in a note with Yogananda [24], we estimate the bounds on torsion on CM elliptic curves. I have made an analogue of a conjecture of Mazur on the density of rational points in the Euclidean topology on an Abelian variety to certain tori (isomorphic to $({\Bbb S}^1)^n$ but non-algebraic!), and proved it using the Schanuel conjecture in [29]. In a paper with C. Khare [30] we prove that an abstract homomorphism between the Mordell-Weil group of abelian varieties over a number field which respects reduction mod $p$, in fact arises from homomorphism of abelian varieties. The paper [28] written with CS Rajan is a re-look at Sunada's theorem about isospectral Riemannian manifolds where we deduce it as a consequence of a simple lemma in group theory. In this paper we also conjecture, and verify in several cases, that the Jacobians of two Riemann surfaces with the same spectrum for Laplacian are isogenous (after an extension of the base field), and propose this as an Archimedean analogue of Tate's conjecture. I have written some survey papers, of which [37], [38] might have some results which may not be found elsewhere. Professional Recognition, Awards, Fellowships received : 1.

His thesis advisor was T. Tamagawa. He was an Acting Assistant Professor at UCLA (1971-73) and an Assistant Professor at Brandeis (1973-76) before joining the University as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics in 1976. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1978 and to Professor in 1989. He currently is Associate Chair of the Department of Mathematics. Research Prof. Pizer's research interests are in the field of Number Theory. Prof. Pizer is particularly interested in the study of the arithmetic of quaternion algebras and its connections to modular forms, Brandt matrices, Hecke operators, and Ramanujan graphs. Much of his work has been related to the "Basis Problem" which involves constructing explicit bases for spaces modular forms from theta series attached to quaternion algebras and determining the action of Hecke operators on such bases. Currently he is interested in developing a "ray class" ideal theory for orders in quaternion algebras in analogy with ray class" theory in number fields and the application of such a theory to Ramanujan graphs. Prof. Pizer is also has a pedagogical interest in using the internet for mathematics education. He is a codeveloper, together with Prof. Gage, of the homework delivery system WeBWorK.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. My name is Yi Ouyang and in Chinese Ou Yang Yi. I am a postdoctoral fellow of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto. Education I got both my BS and MS degrees from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Science and Technology of China , the youngest of the most prestigious universities in China and the proudest of all. You can find some information about my undergraduate study from our class homepage Class 8901 . In 1995, I spent a year at Department of Mathematics of the Ohio State University . My four years study(1996-2000) at Department of Mathematics of the University of Minnesota ended up with my Ph.D degree in June 2000 under the instruction of Professor Greg William Anderson . Research My specialty is algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. More specifically, I apply cohomological tools to study the arithmetic properties of number fields. One topic I am studying is the universal norm distributions, which appears quite often in the theory of cyclotomic fields, elliptic curves and modular curves. I determined the group cohomology of some universal norm distributions and used the results to study the Kolyvagin recursions in Euler systems. The other topic I am studying is about the Mordell-Weil group and Selmer group of an abelian variety in number fields, in particular, in a tower of unramified extensions. I am also participating activities in the GANITA lab. I am interested in the theoretical part of cryptography based on abelian varieties.

The file containing the complete specifications of abbreviated primes, and all recorded first occurrence, maximal, and first known occurrence prime gaps, exceeds 20 MB in size. My presently available bandwidth renders it impractical to maintain this file online and updated. However, I have made available the zipfile merits.zip (171K), which contains a text file specifying the measure G and the merit M=G ln(p_1) for all known first occurrence and first known occurrence prime gaps. This file should be of assistance in determining whether or not some newly discovered gap constitutes a new first known occurrence. The prime gap listings were last updated 0430 EST 12 November 2005.

The P*YDIRT and B*WL B*UND football simulation board games (see below). See Downloads for free software. P*YDIRT AND B*WL B*UND The following information is provided in response to numerous inquiries. For most of the period from 1977 to 1995, I carried out design and development for the football simulation board games P*ydirt (pro) and B*wl B*und (college), produced and distributed commercially by Av*lon H*ll Game Company (Baltimore, Maryland) and Sp*rts Ill*strated Enterprises. Commercial support of these games was suspended in April, 1995, and I retired from development in February, 1996. Av*lon H*ll Game Company was later acquired by H*sbro, Inc., and commercial design, production, and distribution of both games was suspended indefinitely. It appears that H*sbro retains the rights to both games at this time. Inquiries regarding these games and their team charts should be directed to Mr. Matt Floray, who has undertaken design, revision, production, and distribution in the interim. Mr. Floray has been in contact with H*sbro, Inc., regarding efforts to bring the games back onto the market. Mr. Floray can be contacted at butchcassidy(at)earthlink(dot)net, or at 213-576-3238. Mr. Floray has access to all the data files, documentation, algorithms, and computer codes that I used to design P*ydirt and B*wl B*und charts from 1977 to 1995, and hopes to produce both new and revised charts for these games. Incidentally, the 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987 P*ydirt team charts were not my work...despite the fact that my name appears (unauthorized) on many of them. SILVA'S NEW MAXIMAL PRIME GAP OF 1220 Professor Toms Oliveira e Silva reported (14 April 2003) the discovery of a new first known occurrence prime gap of 1220 following the prime 80873624627234849, having merit 31.3370. When Silva completed (20 January 2004) an exhaustive scan of all gaps through 1e17, this gap was proven to be a first occurrence and maximal prime gap. Silva's gap of 1220 is presently the largest known maximal and or first occurrence prime gap, succeeding his previous record maximal gap of 1198. E-MAIL SECURITY ALERT My current e-mail address is always available elsewhere on this site. If you receive an e-mail claiming to be from my address (or some slight variation of my address), which is threatening, abusive, solicitous, commercially oriented, questionable in nature, or otherwise suspicious, treat it as a fraudulent act of vandalism on the part of some third party; ignore its contents and delete it! I DID NOT SEND IT! Be aware that malicious parties and spammers frequently spoof legitimate e-mail addresses, including my own, using forged headers. My own e-mails will always have distinctive identification headers, aside from those inserted by the mail provider. On the rare occasions when I send attachments with e-mails, it will be with the prior permission of the recipient, or there will be a clear explanation within the message of the contents of the attachment. Furthermore, I never include active links, embedded images, J*vaScr*pt, VBScr*pt, or Act*ve-X controls in e-mail (although the mail providers, such as H*tmail, might add such features without my permission). If possible, send your e-mail messages as plain text. Attachments and large data files should be sent as zipfiles (this protects the contents from corruption by the mailers). Please DO NOT send embedded images (jpg, gif, bmp, etc.) in your messages, as these constitute a security hole for viruses and worms, and create a serious bottleneck in e-mail processing. If such images are deemed critical, send them in separate zipped attachments. I have provided detailed instructions for submitting lists of prime gaps. Make sure that your subject line is to the point---otherwise, your message might be deleted, unread, as likely spam. If your zipfiles or other attachments are extremely large (several MB), I do not advise sending them via e-mail. For such extremely large files, provide instead a pointer to a website from which I can download the file. E-MAIL ADDRESSES AND PROPRIETARY MARKS MASKED As a general policy, literal e-mail addresses are no longer published on this site. A few documents have been left unaltered, due to possible historical relevance, in which literal e-mail addresses appear, but it is unlikely (after nearly a decade) that these addresses remain valid. This is part of an effort (probably futile) to hinder the trillions of agencies ceaselessly scouring the Web for e-mail addresses, collecting them for spamming or abusive purposes. This is also the principal reason for the lack of any direct e-mail link to the author. Furthermore, words, symbols, abbreviations, and phrases which I know or suspect to be copyrighted, trademarked, or otherwise legally restricted, have been bowdlerized by replacing key characters with an asterisk (*).

Support is provided for both the Western Church (Catholic Protestant) and Eastern Orthodox algorithms, and for both the Gregorian and Julian (Old Style) calendars. No warranty expressed or implied; this code has not been endorsed or approved by any religious institution, organization, or authority. Last updated 0402 EDT 11 June 2005. factor1.zip , a zipfile (131K) containing source files (GNU C with GMP) and an executable for a code which illustrates some algorithms used for factoring integers, including small prime generation, trial divisors, Brent's variation of Pollard's rho method, Pollard's (p-1) method, and a partial implementation of the ECM method. An expression parser is included to allow input in formula form, such as factor1 "2**150 + 1" (see the remark above concerning command-line argument specification). No claim is made that this code is state of the art or research caliber; it is most certainly no threat to current encryption schemes. It may eventually be improved by incorporating additional factoring algorithms. Last updated 1300 GMT 26 January 2005. lirz.zip , a zipfile (83K) containing source, documentation, data files, and an executable for the purpose of computing the number-theoretic functions Li (logarithmic integral); L2, L3, and L4 (Hardy-Littlewood integral approximations); and R(x), Riemann's prime number function formula. Routines are included for GNU C (GCC 3.04, long double precision), UBASIC 8.8f (ultraprecision), and M*thematica 2.1 (ultraprecision). Last updated 0500 GMT 25 April 2004. pentbug.zip , a zipfile (55K) containing the C source code (pentbug.c) and executable (pentbug.exe) for an application which will check for the P*ntium FDIV flaw. Last updated 26 April 2003. pi2.zip , a zipfile (148K) containing the C source codes (pi2e.c and pi2f.c) and executables (pi2e.exe and pi2f.exe) for programs illustrating some practical techniques for generating the twin primes and tabulating their properties. The pi2f code takes advantage of the sieve of Eratosthenes; the pi2e code uses the simple square-root test for primality. The pi2f code is faster in most cases, but either one can enumerate all the twin primes below 1e6 in less than one second on a 600 MHz C*l*ron; pi2f can enumerate all those below 1e8 in under 15 seconds. Last updated 2100 GMT 22 November 2004. pix.zip , a zipfile (209K) containing the C source codes and executables for enumerating the primes and pi(x). Three algorithms are illustrated, using the GMP mpz_probab_prime_p function, trial divisors to the square root, and the sieve of Eratosthenes over byte arrays. Last updated 0100 GMT 29 December 2004. td2k.zip , a zipfile (20K) containing the source code (td2k.ub) and documentation (td2k.txt) for a UBASIC application designed for discovering new first known occurrence prime gaps. This is a fully operational research production code. If you download and use it, I encourage you to notify me of any new first known occurrence prime gaps you discover; I will then post them (with proper attribution and credit) in my lists. NOTE: The input and data files of td2k are incompatible with those of the previous version, td2j. Runs begun with td2j should be completed with td2j, or re-started from scratch with td2k. Last updated 0225 GMT 29 April 2005. UBASIC (725K), a freeware GW-B*SIC-like interpreted programming environment developed by Professor of Mathematics Yji Kida of Rikkyo University, Japan (ftp: rkmath.rikkyo.ac.jp pub ubibm ). UBASIC features easily accessible ultraprecision integer and floating point arithmetic (hundreds of digits), as well as numerous additional intrinsic functions of specific interest in computational number theory. No computational number theorist should be without UBASIC! Also very effective for classroom instructional use. The zipfile provided here contains Version 8.8f (7 October 2000); see also ftp: rkmath.rikkyo.ac.jp pub ubibm . NOTE: Be aware that, due to the peculiar command-line parsing algorithm incorporated in recent versions of M*cr*s*ft W*nd*ws, mathematical expressions in command lines should, to avoid misinterpretation, be specified within DOUBLE QUOTES; e.g., MYCODE "2**150 + 1" This syntax is also valid under DOS and older versions of W*nd*ws, but the double quotes were optional in those operating environments. Depending on the programming language, it may also be necessary (within the source code) to strip off the double quotes and or concatenate command-line arguments. Finally, replacing the exponentiation operator "^" (a particularly troublesome token for W*nd*ws) with "**" (as in FORTRAN COBOL) may be helpful, if the application permits.

Nakagawa_Homepage [Japanese Version] Jin Nakagawa (Number Theory) I am working in algebraic number theory. In particular, I am interested in the distribution of the discriminants of algebraic number fields in connection with class numbers of binary forms, zeta functions associated with prehomogeneous vector spaces and Igusa's local zeta functions.

Chandrashekhar Khare's Home Page Description of work My interests are mainly in algebraic number theory. One of the basic objectives of algebraic number theory may be said to be to understand the structure of G_Q, the absolute Galois group group of Q. To vary a well-known quote, G_Q knows a lot of number theory and one only has to prevail upon it to reveal all that it knows. For instance the way G_Q knows an elliptic curve E over Q is via its traces in the compatible system of \ell-adic representations attached to it: that the elliptic curve E can be essentially reconstituted from these traces is Falting's isogeny theorem. One way to study a group is via its linear representations. In the case of G_Q there are three possible classes of representations that can be studied: mod p, p-adic and complex. Studying these and their relationships is one important theme in recent work especially after the fundamental work of Wiles on the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture that combined the study of all these three varieties of representations. The one systematic way to construct representations of G_Q is via modular forms. A reciprocity law will say that an abstract representation of G_Q arises automorphically, i.e., it embodies an abstract representation. Such laws are of great importance and have many applications and a long history that neither starts with Artin nor ends with Wiles (to mention just 2 of the key names with reciprocity laws attached to them), as there are many reciprocity laws yet to be proven, and some that are even yet to be formulated! My work is mainly concerned with the relationship between modular forms and Galois representations. Much of it is inspired, either directly or indirectly, by Serre's conjecture (a reciprocity law for mod p Galois representations) that an odd irreducible 2-dimensional mod p representation \rho of the absolute Galois group of Q ``arises from'' newforms. Below I will give a more detailed summary of my work (all references are to the papers listed below): CONGRUENCES: Assuming that \rho does arise from a modular form, it then arises from many. This is the phenomenon of congruences between modular forms. It is of interest to analyse the local behaviour at primes \ell of newforms that give rise to \rho. This was done in the case when \ell is not p in the works of Ribet, Carayol, Diamond and Taylor. The analysis for the \ell=p (or the (p,p)) case is done in the papers [10], [11], [18]. This work is useful in defining the modular deformation rings in work on the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture. The papers [2], [8], [9], [16] are also related to this topic. MOD p DESCENT FOR HILBERT MODULAR FORMS, LIFTING GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS: I considered base change, i.e., restriction, in the context of Galois representations which led to the proof of the existence of a mod p^2 lifting of \rho in [5] where now \rho (just for this sentence) is allowed to be any 2-dimensional mod p representation of the Galois group of the extension K_s K where K_s is a seperable closure of a given field K (see also [1]): this can be phrased by saying that a certain cohomology class is negligible in a terminology introduced by Serre. This work was inspired by the following question: Suppose the restriction of an irreducible odd 2-dimensional mod p representation \rho of G_Q to the absolute Galois group of a totally real cyclic extension of Q is irreducible and modular. Then can this modularity property descended to Q? This is dealt with in [19]. Together with an idea of Taylor, the method of [19] ``reduces'' (sic) proving Serre's conjecture to producing points on certain moduli spaces that are rational over solvable extensions of Q. This has been done in some cases when the image of \rho is small by J. Manoharmayum (GL_2(F_7)) and J. Ellenberg (GL_2(F_9)). A key input in [19] is a result in Galois theory, i.e., a p-adic lifting result of Ravi Ramakrishna for 2-dimensional irreducible representations \rho of G_Q. APPLICATIONS OF SERRE'S CONJECTURE: In [3] it is proven that Serre's conjecture implies the strong Artin conjecture (another reciprocity law) that odd irreducible 2-dimensional representations of the absolute Galois group of Q arise from newforms. This is now known unconditionally in many cases because of Richard Taylor's work carried out in part with several collaborators. In [4] we explore some implications that Serre's conjecture has for finiteness of semisimple mod p representations of G_Q that are unramified outside p. LOCAL LANGLANDS MOD \ELL: In [17] it is proven that the local Langlands correspondence between certain irreducible admissible representations of GL_n(Q_p), and certain n-dimensional representations of the Weil-Deligne group of Q_p defined over $\ell$-adic fields, ``reduces mod \ell'' (\ell unequal to p). This reproves some results of M.-F. Vigneras by different methods that are more global and which use the theory of congruences between automorphic representations, besides using the compatibility proved in the work of Harris and Taylor between the global and local Langlands correspondence. The methods of [17] have been subsequently used by Vigneras to give a complete proof of the mod \ell local Langlands correspondence. p-ADIC GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS: In [23] finiteness results are proved for Selmer groups attached to p-adic lifts of even irreducible 2-dimensional mod p representations that are produced by Ravi Ramakrishna. In [21] converging sequences of Galois representations are constructed and studied. In [22] ramification properties of semisimple p-adic representations of Galois groups of number fields are studied. MODULARITY THEOREMS: In [24] new proofs are given of the modularity lifting theorems of Wiles, Taylor-Wiles that use the auxiliary primes discovered by Ravi Ramakrishna. COMPATIBLE SYSTEMS OF MOD p GALOIS REPRESENTATIONS: In [7], [26], [27] we consider Galois representations in different characteristics and examine reciprocity laws in this context. In [28] a geometric analog of this is considered. I will describe the contents of the papers listed below that are still in preparation: The question that is addressed in [28] (suggested by the work of Rodriganz and Schoof (J. of Number Theory 64 (1997), 276--290) and the preprint ``Compatible systems of mod p Galois representations II'' below) is: Suppose A is an abelian variety over the rationals Q, and f:A(Q) ------- A(Q) is a homomorphism of the Mordell-Weil group of $A$ that ``reduces mod p'' for almost all p. Then does the restriction of f to a subgroup of finite index of A(Q) arise from an endomorphism of A? In many cases we answer this question. A similar question can be posed and answered more easily for arithmetic lattices in linear groups. In [27 ] we explore mod pq versions of Serre's conjecture: this was considered earlier by Barry Mazur and Ken Ribet, and there are computations of William Stein related to it. It was also considered in the paper ``Mod p descent for Hilbert modular forms'' below. In these earlier studies the ``level aspect'' was studied while here we emphasise the ``weight aspect''. We also consider mod pq 1-dimensional Galois representations and study when they arise simultaneously from a Hecke character. In [25] we study the following question: Let N be an integer prime to a given prime $p$. A Hecke eigensystem that arises from H^1(\Gamma_1(N),F_p) also arises from H^1(\Gamma_1(N),Symm^{p-1}(F_p)). This is puzzling as the SL_2(F_p)-module Symm^{p-1}(F_p) does not admit F_p as a subquotient. We ``resolve this puzzle'' and explore the group theoretic meaning of the Hasse invariant in a few different settings. My papers are here:

I'm glad you stopped by! I am currently an assistant professor in the mathematical sciences department at Loyola College in Baltimore. I came here in August 2003 from the University of Rochester , where I taught and did research for three years. Before that, I was a student at the University of Michigan , earning my Ph.D. under the direction of Trevor Wooley . My research interests are in number theory. One of the main reasons why I like number theory is that there are so many questions which any junior high school student can understand, but nobody in the world knows how to answer. If you are interested, you can check out my research description above. My personal research is unfortunately not on one of the questions that are really easy to state, but I have tried to write it in a way so that it's not too hard to understand. I hope that I have succeeded. If you're interested in reading a more detailed account of my work, please read either my research statement and NSF grant application on the professional items page or my papers and preprints. This fall, I'm teaching Math 251 (Calculus I), Math 395 (Discrete Methods) and Math 490 (Special Topics - Topology). You can find links to the homepages for these courses above, as well as some information about other courses I have taught. This year, I am also in charge of Loyola's Putnam Exam and Virginia Tech Math Competion teams. These are math contests for college students. The problems can be very hard (especially the Putnam exam - the Va. Tech problems are somewhat easier), but the contest is a lot of fun. If you are interested in participating, please contact me!

Summary: My main research area is Arithmetic Geometry, which is a synthesis of Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry, and which includes the realm of Diophantine questions such as Fermat's Last Theorem. In addition, I am interested in applications of Arithmetic Geometry to Public Key Cryptography. More precisely, my research focuses on Galois representations, particularly those attached to (modular) elliptic curves; these played a crucial role in Wiles' proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The question of when such representations can be isomorphic is of special interest to me, for a precise understanding of this question would have important Diophantine consequences, as G. Frey (Essen) has observed. This leads to four inter-connected yet separate lines of investigations: 1) Modular Diagonal Quotient Surfaces, which classify such isomophisms; 2) Curves of genus 2 with elliptic differentials, which are obtained by fusing together two elliptic curves with isomorphic Galois representations (in part joint work with G. Frey); 3) Hurwitz schemes arising from genus 2 covers over elliptic curves. 4) Representations of fundamental groups (in part joint work with G. Frey and H. Volklein). The above topics, particularly the modular diagonal quotient surfaces, are also closely related to following topic(s): 5) Modular forms and Galois representations Recent Preprints Abelian subvarieties and the Shimura construction.

TERENCE JACKSON'S HOMEPAGE Terence Jackson E-mail: thj1@york.ac.uk Phone: 01904 43 3070, (+44) 1904 43 3070 (international) Research Interests: Since the 19th century a great deal of effort has been put into finding the lattice constants of bodies associated with quadratic forms. One outstanding case is the body 0 = x^2 -y^2 -z^2 -t^2 1. In 1931 Oppenheim found an admissable lattice for this body by looking at quaternary forms with large minima. However it is still not known if his lattice is critical. In the Acta Mathm et Inf. of Universitatis Ostraviensis (vol 10, pp43-48) I have used my recent isolation results about ternary forms of signature -1 to improve the known lower bound for the lattice constant in this case from 0.795.. to 0.918... Very recently J Bochnak and I have considered the distribution of small positive values of indefinite forms with at least 3 variables. Such a form is normalized when |d(f)| = 1 where d(f) is the determinant. Then, for each e 0, we have proved that a normalized indefinite f will represent a value v with 0 v e unless f is equivalent to one of a finite number of forms. This shows that, for indefinite forms in three or more variables, all the Markoff-type spectra are of discrete type. In recent years some new types of proofs have been found about the representation of primes by particular quadratic forms. The first of these was Heath-Brown's proof of Fermat's two-squares theorem in 1984. Then in 1990 Zagier gave a 'one-sentence' proof that required almost no background. I found a similar short proof of the fact that primes congruent to 3 modulo 8 are of the form x^2 + 2y^2 (Amer Math Monthly, vol 107, p447). My paper in the proceedings of the 1999 Turku conference gave a different short proof of this and also gave a direct proof that primes congruent to 7 modulo 12 are of the form x^2 + 3y^2 . In the proceedings of the 14th Czech Slovak number theory conference I have explored the connection between these direct proofs and automorphs of ternary quadratic forms.

Jacobson, Michael
University of Manitoba. Computational aspects of quadratic orders. Papers and thesis.
Homepage of Michael Jacobson Michael J. Jacobson, Jr. Department of Computer Science University of Manitoba Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada R3T 2N2 Phone: (204) 474 8995 Fax: (204) 474 7609 jacobs@cs.umanitoba.ca If you're not into computational number theory, you may want to make a quick escape to here . Topics of Current Research: My main area of research is computational aspects of quadratic orders. In particular, I am interested in computing the structure of ideal class groups and, in the case of real quadratic orders, the regulator, i.e., the natural logarithm of the fundamental unit. These problems are at least as difficult as factoring integers, and hence are also of interest in a cryptographic context. My doctoral work focused on an improvement of the sub-exponential algorithm for class group and regulator computation which results in significantly better practical performance. I have also used these new techniques to improve the algorithms for solving discrete logarithm problems in the class group and the infrastructure. My current work includes investigating cryptographic aspects of non-maximal real quadratic orders, searching for quadratic class groups with non-cyclic p-Sylow subgroups, and investigating the practical impact of these ideas on the subexponential algorithm for computing discrete logarithm in quadratic congruence function fields with high genus.

Similar to Weber's modular equations of `irrational kind', these equations are supremely useful in providing evaluations of class invariants. The above preprint "Eta Evaluations from Modular Equations for Weber Functions" is as a result, in the process of being dramatically expanded in scope (yes, there is a `method' now, working in an infinite number of cases). A further preprint on the somewhat elegant theory behind these new modular equations will also be added shortly. Work in Progress Planned Work: A look at whether Sharifi's work on bounding various Milnor $K$-groups of rings of certain $S$-integers associated with cyclotomic fields can be extended to the situation of unramified abelian extensions of imaginary quadratic fields. Shimura essentially gives, in his papers, a Shimura reciprocity law for Hilbert modular forms. This has not been made explicit. I plan to decipher Shimura's papers and work with Peter Stevenhagen to attempt to make this explicit.

David Goss' Personal Homepage David Goss This home page contains information that I believe will be of interest to mathematicians, in general, and number theorists, in particular. It contains links to various preprints, papers, and books that I have written or edited. (In particular, there is a sample chapter from, my book "Basic Structures of Function Field Arithmetic," [ cover.jpg ] which was published on October 17, 1996 as well as information on the soft-covered "study" edition published on November 18, 1997.) Finally it contains a link to files on mathematical writing. It should be considered as being in perpetual construction. For information on Math 151A go here. Quite recently, Gebhard Boeckle, wrote an ETH habilitation thesis in which he used the theory of "crystals" for function fields to associate Galois representations to Hecke cuspidal and double cuspidal eigenforms in finite characteristic. (A copy of this thesis is available the site linked to Boeckle below.) This is major breakthrough in the characteristic p theory. It is also a complex work which uses almost all the machinery invented so far! Boeckle's Galois representations are abelian (in contrast to what happens classically, although even classical Dirichlet characters arise from modular forms of fractional weight). In the simplest case where our base algebra is the ring of polynomials over a finite field, it then makes sense to ask if rank 1 Drinfeld modules can be modular in that their associated Galois representations arise from modular forms. In a preprint, (what follows is the final, edited, version) here.dvi , here.pdf , here.ps , we present an introduction to Boeckle's work with an emphasis on modularity in both the classical (elliptic curves over Q AND over a function field) and characteristic p theories. This preprint is published in the Journal of the Ramanujan Math. Soc. {\bf 17} No. 4 (2002) 221-260. In Mathematische Annalen 323 (2002) 737-795, Gebhard Boeckle shows how to analytically continue the L-series associated to "tau-sheaves." Such sheaves arise naturally from Drinfeld modules as well as general A-modules (in the sense of G. Anderson) and have become the basic structure of characteristic p arithmetic. Boeckle's proof uses essentially the logarithmic growth of the degrees of the "special polynomials" associated to these L-series. In a new paper, we show how to use non-Archimedean integration to analytically continue such L-series as well as ALL associated partial $L$-series. Our proof uses the logarithmic growth and certain deep estimates of Amice. An interesting point of the proof is the way that the analytic theory of L-series at all(!) places of base field k is needed to establish the result. (Final version put online May 3, 2004 -- to appear in the Journal of Number Theory.) For a copy, go here.dvi, here.ps, or here.pdf. In a 1999 preprint we explained how to formulate the characteristic p "Generalized Riemann Hypothesis," as well as the characteristic p version of the "Generalized Simplicity Conjecture," in terms of absolute values. A corresponding reformulation of the classical statements is also given. The similarities between the "absolute value conjectures" in the two theories (i.e., classical and characteristic p arithmetic) are very strong and quite surprising. (See also the next two paragraphs.) For a copy of this preprint, go here.dvi , here.ps , or here.pdf . The published version of this paper is Journal of Number Theory vol. 82, no.2 (June, 2000) 299-322. The on-line version can be accessed at here . (See below for a site dedicated to current papers on the Riemann Hypothesis.) The Riemann Hypothesis in characteristic p is based on the work of D.Wan, D.Thakur and J.Diaz-Vargas, B.Poonen, and J.Sheats (exact references given in the above files) for the zeta function of F_r[T]. The zeta function is defined for (x,y) in S_\infty where x lies in a finite characteristic complete field and y is a p-adic integer. Thus one has a 1-parameter family of power series and an associated 1-parameter family of Newton polygons. One can therefore say more precisely that Wan, Diaz-Vargas, etc., compute the family of Newton polygons associated to this zeta-function. This family turns out to have segments with horizontal length identically 1, which establishes that the zeroes are both simple (i.e., of order 1) and in Fr((1 T)). In seeking to phrase this ``Rh'' for as large a class of characteristic p functions as possible, it was realized that one would have to allow for finitely many anomalous zeroes for each y. Now for y a negative integer one only has finitely many trivial zeroes; thus we simply ignored these trivial zeroes (and so the infinite primes) in formulating these conjectures. Since the publication of the above manuscript, it was realized that this assumption is in error; that is, the trivial zeroes, and so the infinite primes, must be taken into account. What happens is that the topology on S_\infty allows us to use zeroes close to trivial zeroes (``near-trivial zeroes'') to inductively construct counter-examples. This is contained in ``The impact of the infinite primes on the Riemann hypothesis for characteristic p valued L-series,'' which appears in the book "Algebra, Arithmetic and Geometry with Applications", (Eds: Christensen et al) Springer (2004) 357-380. For the preprint see here.dvi , here.ps or here.pdf ,. In this paper we also begin to come to grips with the implications of these counter-examples. We explain how trivial and near-trivial zeroes should arise in general, and how they might ultimately be handled via Hensel's Lemma (whereas classically one uses Gamma-functions). We break up all the zeroes into two classes, the near-trivial zeroes and the ``critical zeroes'' (= all other zeroes). But then there is a remarkable surprise: All zeroes computed by Wan et al are near-trivial (this is established when r=p and should be true in general). Thus, while it is reasonable to believe that these critical zeroes will exist in abundance, up to now we have had very little experience with them.

The publisher for the "Basic Structures" volume is Springer and the Springer series which contains the book is Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete, Vol. 35. Abstract for volume 35: The arithmetic of function fields over finite fields has been an area of extensive research for about two decades with many tantalizing results having recently been obtained. This book offers a self-contained introduction to basic concepts such as Drinfeld modules, T-modules, shtukas, exponentiation of ideals, and characteristic p L-functions and Gamma-functions in all their various manifestations. Insight from classical number theory, differential equations algebra and algebraic geometry is presented whenever needed. Interesting unsolved problems are posed to the reader and a comprehensive list of references is included. All of this is presented to give the reader the basic tools to begin doing active research into this rapidly expanding area. The volume is ISBN 3-540-61087-1 and contains 415 references. Below is the .dvi file of the table of contents. Table of Contents of Vol. 35 Follow this link Springer Germany for the homepage of Volume 35 on www.Springer.de. Follow this link Springer New York for the homepage of Volume 35 on www.Springer-ny.com. The soft-covered study edition is priced at $59.95 and DM 108,- . It has 453 references and some minor corrections have been made. The ISBN number is 3-540-63541-6. In conjunction with Springer, I am very happy to be able to offer both a list of these corrections as well as the expanded references below. In addition, still in conjunction with Springer, I am delighted to offer the .dvi, .ps, and .pdf files of Section 3 "The Carlitz Module" as a sample of the book. For the .dvi file of Section Three.

For the list of corrections. In June, 1991, there was a conference at Ohio State on the arithmetic of function fields related to Drinfeld modules. The proceedings were published by de Gruyter in 1992 as "The Arithmetic of Function Fields," which is the second volume of de Gruyter's Ohio State University Mathematical Research Institute Publications. It was edited by D. Goss, D.R. Hayes and M.I. Rosen and is ISBN 3-11-013171-4. Below is the .dvi file of the table of contents of these proceedings.

I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia (this is not the best guide to the city, let's face it - hopefully I'll find a better one and remember to replace the link soon). I emigrated together with my family to San Francisco Bay Area (also not the best link) in 1990 - they still live there, so I visit there often. I went to college at UCLA (guess what was my major ). Oddly enough, my brother Roma studied at USC , but we do not fight over this - we have better reasons. My wife Eugenia is a math graduate student at the University of Texas, Austin . Here are some of my family pictures , and here is a link to our wedding album . I expect to put more information on this page later - possibly some of my favorite links as well as some of our pictures, so do check back. Free Satellite

My field is arithmetic algebraic geometry: my specific interests include rational points on varieties, enumeration of number fields and other arithmetic objects, Galois representations attached to varieties and their fundamental groups, non-abelian Iwasawa theory, automorphic forms, Hilbert-Blumenthal abelian varieties, Q-curves, curves of low genus, Serre's conjecture, the ABC conjecture, and Diophantine problems related to all of the above. My research here is partially supported by an NSF-CAREER grant and a Sloan Research Fellowship. In Fall 2005, I am teaching Math 491, a topics course in number theory, and Math 847, a graduate topics course about rational points on varieties over global fields. This set of notes from the 2002 AIM conference on rational points provides a useful overview of questions and techniques people are thinking about in this area; the list of open problems is especially recommended. I am also running the Collaborative Undergraduate Research Laboratory, in which teams of undergraduates are investigating questions about the distribution of invariants of cubic number fields; see our course blog to follow our progress.

Eikenberg Graduate Student University of Maryland Mathematics Department Ed_Hokie@terpalum.umd.edu Notes from my PME talk on Congruent Numbers and Elliptic Curves My Ph.D. Dissertation: Rational Points on Some Families of Elliptic Curves Teaching Stuff: I am no longer at the University of Maryland, but I was a TA there for several years. For the record, here is a list of the courses I have taught: Fall 1996 Math 140 - Calculus I Spring 1997 Math 141 - Calculus II Fall 1997 Grading and Tutoring Spring 1998 Grading and Tutoring Fall 1998 Math 140 - Calculus I Spring 1999 Math 110 - Elementary Math Models Fall 1999 Math 141 - Calculus II Spring 2000 Math 140 - Calculus I Summer II 2000 Math 406 - Intro to Number Theory Fall 2000 Math 110 - Elementary Math Models Spring 2001 Math 110 - Elementary Math Models As a special note, I would like to thank the students from my 1999 classes for nominating me for the Math Department's Excellence in Teaching Award for TA's. I was not the winner of the award, but I was one of the two TA's who received an Honorable Mention. Thank you all so much. I wish you and all of my current and previous students success in all of your ventures. My Life Before Graduate School: Baltimore, MD is my hometown, and I am a big Orioles fan. I usually go to about 5-10 games a year, and watch them whenever I can. I am also a fan of the Baltimore Ravens, and try to follow the Washington Redskins as well. I went to high school at Calvert Hall , an all-male, private, Catholic, college-preparatory high school located in the Towson area of Baltimore County. I received my bachelors degree in math from Virginia Tech in December of 1992. I am a huge fan of the VT football team, the Hokies! They just completed one of their best seasons ever, going 11-0 before losing to Florida State in the Sugar Bowl for the NCAA national championship. Of course I took a road trip to New Orleans for the game. Even though they lost, I had a great time. I can't wait for next season. After graduating from college, I went to work at Watson Wyatt Worldwide . I worked there as an actuarial technician for almost 2 years full time before I cut back to a part-time status and started graduate school. I still work there occasionally, on an as-needed basis. My Life During Grad School: For those who don't know me, I'm a grad student at University of Maryland, College Park working on my Ph.D. in mathematics. My current area of research is ranks of elliptic curves. An elliptic curve is a cubic polynomial function whose rational points form a finitely-generated group under an appropriate operation. For more detailed info on what an elliptic curve is, check out the notes from my PME talk on congruent numbers and elliptic curves . I am currently studing the ranks of these groups as related to the curve. In particular, I am concentrating on techniques to find the rank without actually finding points that generate the group. So I spend lots of time doing research toward my dissertation. One day, I may even finish. My favorite diversion from my research is playing volleyball. In fact, you might even say that my favorite diversion from volleyball is doing math research. I am a volleyball fanatic. I play in a league almost all year round and play doubles tournaments in the summer. Basically, I play way more than I should. I also enjoy playing tennis, racquetball, ultimate frisbee, and softball. Basically, I love outdoor activities. University of Maryland || UM Math Dept Homepage

Elsholtz Christian Elsholtz Employment: 1997 99: Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter, University of Stuttgart 1999 2003 Wissenschaftlicher Assistent, Technical University of Clausthal 2003-today: Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at Royal Holloway, University of London. Degrees: Diploma in Mathematics, 1996, Technical University of Darmstadt. Ph.D., 1998, Technical University of Darmstadt. Subject: Sums of k Unit Fractions. My Ph.D. ancestors Habilitation Privatdozent 2002, Technical University of Clausthal. Title: Combinatorial prime number theory- A study of the gap structure of the set of primes. Comments: I am occasionally asked: "what is Habilitation?" The Habilitation is a formal degree based on postdoctoral work, and is considered to be more significant than a Ph.D. In the German system it is the highest scientific qualification. It consists of a written Thesis, a talk on current research including an oral exam, and a lecture to demonstrate teaching skills. For each of the latter two talks I had to submit three distinct subjects (covering the whole range of mathematics) of which the faculty chose: The crossing number in graph theory and its applications, and Fair division of sandwiches and cakes.

Please visit our Small Rings page for examples. Mathematical Research I work in an area of mathematics called number theory, and in particular on the subject of the Mahler measure of a polynomial. I also study other topics from both number theory and abstract algebra (on polynomials, groups, algebraic extensions, etc). Here are some of the articles I have written: Orbits of Algebraic Numbers with Low Heights, Math. Comp. 67 (April 1998), 815--820. (Download as: pdf , LaTeX , dvi , ps .) Two Irrational Numbers From the Last Non-Zero Digits of n! and nn, Math. Mag. 74 (October 2001), 316--320. ( pdf , LaTeX .) Sums of Heights of Algebraic Numbers, Math. Comp., 72 (2003), 1487--1499. ( pdf , LaTeX , dvi , ps .) On the Middle Coefficient of the Cyclotomic Polynomial, MAA Monthly 111 (June-July 2004), 531--533. ( pdf , LaTeX .) The above article led to a new sequence in ATT's On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences , with the not-very-descriptive name A094754 ; see also the related sequence A095877 . Thanks to T. D. Noe for submitting these to the encyclopedia (and to ATT for hosting such a fun and valuable resource). There Are Only Nine Finite Groups of Linear Fractional Transforms with Integer Coefficients, Math. Mag. 77 (June 2004), 211--218. ( pdf , LaTeX .) Finding Factors of Factor Rings over the Gaussian Integers, with Wayne Dymacek , MAA Monthly 112 (Aug-Sep, 2005), 602--611. ( pdf , LaTeX .) The above article gives me an Erds number of 4, based on the (probably non-unique) chain: Greg Dresden -- Wayne Dymacek -- Gerard Chang -- Stephen Hedetniemi -- Paul Erds. This article was inspired by questions from students Matt Kozora and Michael Riley in Professor Dymacek's Math 322 class.

For information on the Mahler measure, please check out this excellent web site prepared by Mike Mossinghoff, a fellow Texas graduate (now at Davidson). I co-hosted the SERMON 2003 math meeting, a regional number theory conference. Check it out! I've given many presentations on mathematics and one on teaching mathematics, at local and national conferences. Also, Art Benjamin (mentioned above) gave a presentation on our joint work at MIT in December of 2004, and fellow WL professor Wayne Dymacek gave a talk on our joint paper here at WL. In the first half of 2005, I gave a talk in Columbia (South Carolina) on transcendental numbers, and a talk in Charlottesville (Virginia) on Gaussian integers. Math Information for Washington Lee Students (and others) An extremely cool reference on the web is Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics , hosted by the nice folks at Wolfram Research. Be sure to check out my Winter Term Linear Algebra Page , with all of its cool math videos done by students. This led to a presentation at the San Diego AMS MAA meeting on the innovative use of student-produced video in a math class, and may soon end up as a paper, as well. My Math Department actuary web page tells you everything you want to know about how to pursue this lucrative and rewarding career (and yes, we have math classes for that). Anticipating having trouble with Calculus 101 or 102? You might want to check out the free nightly tutoring sessions in Robinson 6, Sunday through Thursday from 7 to 8:30 pm. A favorite course of mine is Math 365. This is an introductory course in number theory, a very beautiful area of mathematics that dates back to the ancient Greeks, yet contains many modern applications ranging from deciphering German codes during WWII to verifying the account numbers on your ATM card. Students who took this course during Winter term really enjoyed it. I occasionally teach Math 195, on cryptography and number theory, in the spring term. This course covers many of the issues concerning the current encryption methods used by commercial programs and by the military: how the codes work, why they work, and how to break them. Surprisingly, one can create very secure (but not perfectly secure!) encryption systems using some fairly easy facts of basic number theory about prime numbers. An excellent example of an encryption system is the PGP system by Phil Zimmermann. So secure is Zimmermann's PGP program that the U.S. government classified it as a restricted munition, and tried to keep him from sharing it with folks in foreign (and potentially hostile) nations. Indeed, many fear that terrorists and criminals can use these systems to encrypt their files, thus making recovery nearly impossible. The most exciting part of the course, I think, is our field trip to the Marshall Museum, which has an extensive collection of cryptographic materials and artifacts. In this picture from a few years back, Dr. Dymacek (on the right) explains to us some of the details about the ENIGMA machine. You'll recall that the ENIGMA was used by the Germans to encode military messages during the war. British and American scientists (led by the brilliant Alan Turing) managed to break the code, and thus tremendously advanced the Allied war effort. Background I've spent far too many years studying mathematics in school, starting with Stanford University for my bachelor's, followed by the University of Wisconsin at Madison for my master's degree and the University of Texas at Austin for my doctorate, under the guidance of Dr. Jeffrey Vaaler. In between, I spent a year teaching at a Texas high school called St. Stephen's . Once I got my Ph.D., I came here to Washington Lee University , where I am joined by many Texans, including my wife, a shy San Antonio girl who won't let me put her picture on the web. So, I've found a reasonable facsimile in her comic namesake, Veronica , who shares with my wife the raven hair and general all-around cuteness. As for myself, I'd say that Jason Fox best represents my nerdy demeanor and my affinity for all things scientific. Links For general mathematical information, here are some of my favorite links: The Association for Women in Mathematics has many wonderful programs to encourage women in pursuing a career in the mathematical sciences. AWM student membership is only $15, and yes, men can join too! MAA Online , from the Mathematical Association of America, has many great links to career and grad school information. MAA student membership is $25, and well worth it. The AMS Home Page , from American Mathematical Society, contains valuable professional information, along with a searchable index to mathematical articles. Here is a direct link to the MathSciNet search page . If you're thinking of going to graduate school, you might want to look into getting an AMS student membership , at around $38 or so. (I'm a member of all three groups.) Mathematics Information Servers is a giant listing of just about every mathematical group you can imagine, including a world-wide list of on-line college and university mathematics departments. This is very helpful in providing a direct link to math professors and programs around the world. Here's a direct link to the Number Theory web . Texas has a nice listing of US cc's, colleges, and universities . Locally, check out Washington Lee's expanded access to JSTOR , which provides free access to many math and science journals, in printer-ready, xerox-quality form. This is not a math-related link, but if you want to know what's happening on campus, check out the (text-based) master calendar .

(master) in number theory at the University Bordeaux I in 1996, supervised by Michel Langevin. My report entitled Problme de Lehmer, nombres de Pisot et de Salem au fil des travaux de Boyd, can be found here: dea.ps.gz (zipped postscript format. Using Windows you will need gzip.exe and ghostview to view this file). I defended my thesis entitled Mesures de Mahler et racines relles de certaines familles de polynmes on June 21, 2000 at the University Bordeaux I [ these.ps.gz ]. My Ph.D. advisors were Laurent Habsieger and Michel Langevin. I am interested in analytic number theory and algorithmic. For example, you can get a file of routines PARI [ mahler.gp ] to compute particularly Mahler measures of polynomials in one and two variables. More specifically I am working on Lehmer's problem and on the determination of the number of real zeros of certain families of polynomials with coefficients plus or minus 1, e.g. Thue-Morse polynomials. I explore also another topic with Laurent Habsieger , namely the Rudin-Shapiro polynomials and more precisely the moments of order q of these polynomials. The only result previously known, due to Littlewood, gives the recurrence satisfied by these moments for q=4. We were able to determine explicitly similar linear recurrences for all the even moments q between 4 and 32. Furthermore if L is the length of the Rudin-Shapiro polynomial of order n, that is the sum of the absolute value of its coefficients i.e. L=2^n, we showed that the asymptotic behaviour of these moments was (2L)^(q 2) (q 2+1) for all even q less than or equal to 52. This result was expected and conjectured by Saffari. We try to extend this work to all q and to generalized Rudin-Shapiro polynomials. Finally I am doing research on efficiency aspects of cryptosystems based on elliptic and hyperelliptic curves defined over finite fields.
