Cinquante ans de polynômes = Fifty years of polynomials : proceedings of a conference held in honour of Alain Durand at the
Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris, France, May 2627, 1988 by
Michel Langevin(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Before his untimely death in 1986, Alain Durand had undertaken a systematic and indepth study of the arithmetic perspectives of polynomials. Four unpublished articles of his, formed the centerpiece of attention at a colloquium in Paris in 1988 and are reproduced in this volume together with 11 other papers on closely related topics. A detailed introduction by M. Langevin sets the scene and places these articles in a unified perspective

From number theory to physics by
Michel Waldschmidt(
Book
)
31 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and German and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Various developments in physics have involved many questions related to number theory, in an increasingly direct way. This trend is especially visible in two broad families of problems, namely, field theories, and dynamical systems and chaos. The 14 chapters of this book are extended, selfcontained versions of expository lecture courses given at a school on "Number Theory and Physics" held at Les Houches for mathematicians and physicists. Most go as far as recent developments in the field. Some adapt an original pedagogical viewpoint

Diophantine approximation on linear algebraic groups : transcendence properties of the exponential function in several variables by
Michel Waldschmidt(
Book
)
14 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of transcendental numbers is closely related to the study of diophantine approximation. This book deals with values of the usual exponential function e^z. A central open problem is the conjecture on algebraic independence of logarithms of algebraic numbers. This book includes proofs of the main basic results (theorems of HermiteLindemann, GelfondSchneider, 6 exponentials theorem), an introduction to height functions with a discussion of Lehmer's problem, several proofs of Baker's theorem as well as explicit measures of linear independence of logarithms. An original feature is that proofs make systematic use of Laurent's interpolation determinants. The most general result is the socalled Theorem of the Linear Subgroup, an effective version of which is also included. It yields new results of simultaneous approximation and of algebraic independence. 2 chapters written by D. Roy provide complete and at the same time simplified proofs of zero estimates (due to P. Philippon) on linear algebraic groups

Pierre Cartier(
)
9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Numerous wellpresented and important papers from the conference are gathered in the proceedings for the purpose of pointing directions for useful future research in diverse areas of mathematics including algebraic geometry, analysis, commutative algebra, complex analysis, discrete mathematics, dynamical systems, number theory and topology. Several papers on computational and applied mathematics such as wavelet analysis, quantum mechanics, piecewise linear modeling, cosmological models of super symmetry, fluid dynamics, interpolation theory, optimization, ergodic theory and games theory are also presented

JeanMarc Luck(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and German and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contributions to this book can be divided into two categories: those in which mathematicians write on problems relevant to theoretical physics, and those dealing with problems relevant to number theory, written by physicists. Many recent developments in theoretical physics display aspects related to number theory, and this cooperation will be furthered by this volume. The authors from each discipline have taken pains to present their contributions in a manner that is attractive and understandable to readers from the other discipline. The subjects covered include: modular forms and applications to quantum field theory for strings, number theoretical aspects of the spectra of operators applied to the Hall effect, quasicrystals, almost periodic systems, the Riemann zeta function, applications of number theory to dynamical systems, statistical mechanics, lattices, stochastic processes and integrable systems

This is a translation of "Autour du theoreme de MordellWell", a course given by J.P. Serre at the College de France in 1980 and 1981. These notes were originally written weekly by Michel Waldschmidt and have been reproduced by Publications Mathematiques de l'Universite de Paris VI, by photocopying the handwritten manuscript. The present translation follows roughly the French text, with many modi fications and rearrangements. We have not tried to give a detailed account of the new results due to Faltings, Raynaud, GrossZagier ... ; we have just mentioned them in notes at the appropriate places, and given bibliographical references. M.L. Brown Paris, Fall 1988 I.P. Serre VII CONTENTS 1. Summary. 1 1. 1. Heights. 3 1. 2. The MordellWeil theorem and Mordell's conjecture. 3 1. 3. Integral points on algebraic curves. Siegel's theorem. 4 1. 4. Baker's method. 5 1. 5. Hilbert's irreducibility theorem. Sieves. 5 2. Heights. 7 2. 1. The product formula. 7 2. 2. Heights on P m(K). 10 2. 3.

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To mark the World Mathematical Year 2000 an International Conference on Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics in honour of the legendary Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanuj~ was held at the centre for Advanced study in Mathematics, Panjab University, Chandigarh, India during October 26, 2000. This volume contains the proceedings of that conference. In all there were 82 participants including 14 overseas participants from Austria, France, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore and the USA. The conference was inaugurated by Prof. K. N. Pathak, Hon. ViceChancellor, Panjab University, Chandigarh on October 2, 2000. Prof. Bruce C. Berndt of the University of Illinois, Urbana Chaimpaign, USA delivered the key note address entitled "The Life, Notebooks and Mathematical Contributions of Srinivasa Ramanujan". He described Ramanujanas one of this century's most influential Mathematicians. Quoting Mark K. ac, Prof. George E. Andrews of the Pennsylvania State University, USA, in his message for the conference, described Ramanujan as a "magical genius". During the 5day deliberations invited speakers gave talks on various topics in number theory and discrete mathematics. We mention here a few of them just as a sampling: • M. Waldschmidt, in his article, provides a very nice introduction to the topic of multiple poly logarithms and their special values. • C
