Introduction to analytic number theory by
K Chandrasekharan(
Book
)
41 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in 5 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book has grown out of a course of lectures I have given at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule, Zurich. Notes of those lectures, prepared for the most part by assistants, have appeared in German. This book follows the same general plan as those notes, though in style, and in text (for instance, Chapters III, V, VIII), and in attention to detail, it is rather different. Its purpose is to introduce the nonspecialist to some of the fundamental results in the theory of numbers, to show how analytical methods of proof fit into the theory, and to prepare the ground for a subsequent inquiry into deeper questions. It is pub lished in this series because of the interest evinced by Professor Beno Eckmann. I have to acknowledge my indebtedness to Professor Carl Ludwig Siegel, who has read the book, both in manuscript and in print, and made a number of valuable criticisms and suggestions. Professor Raghavan Narasimhan has helped me, time and again, with illuminating comments. Dr. Harold Diamond has read the proofs, and helped me to remove obscurities. I have to thank them all. K.C

Arithmetical functions by
K Chandrasekharan(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The plan of this book had its inception in a course of lectures on arithmetical functions given by me in the summer of 1964 at the Forschungsinstitut fUr Mathematik of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, at the invitation of Professor Beno Eckmann. My Introduction to Analytic Number Theory has appeared in the meanwhile, and this book may be looked upon as a sequel. It presupposes only a modicum of acquaintance with analysis and number theory. The arithmetical functions considered here are those associated with the distribution of prime numbers, as well as the partition function and the divisor function. Some of the problems posed by their asymptotic behaviour form the theme. They afford a glimpse of the variety of analytical methods used in the theory, and of the variety of problems that await solution. I owe a debt of gratitude to Professor Carl Ludwig Siegel, who has read the book in manuscript and given me the benefit of his criticism. I have improved the text in several places in response to his comments. I must thank Professor Raghavan Narasimhan for many stimulating discussions, and Mr. Henri Joris for the valuable assistance he has given me in checking the manuscript and correcting the proofs. K.

Lectures on the geometry of numbers by
C. L Siegel(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Carl Ludwig Siegel gave a course of lectures on the Geometry of Numbers at New York University during the academic year 194546, when there were hardly any books on the subject other than Minkowski's original one. This volume stems from Siegel's requirements of accuracy in detail, both in the text and in the illustrations, but involving no changes in the structure and style of the lectures as originally delivered. This book is an enticing introduction to Minkowski's great work. It also reveals the workings of a remarkable mind, such as Siegel's with its precision and power and aesthetic charm. It is of interest to the aspiring as well as the established mathematician, with its unique blend of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and analysis, and its easy readability

Classical Fourier transforms by
K Chandrasekharan(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book gives a thorough introduction on classical Fourier transforms in a compact and selfcontained form. Chapter I is devoted to the L1theory: basic properties are proved as well as the Poisson summation formula, the central limit theorem and Wiener's general tauberian theorem. As an illustraiton of a Fourier transformation of a function not belonging to L1 ( ,) an integral due to Ramanujan is given. Chapter II is devoted to the L2theory, including Plancherel's theorem, Heisenberg's inequality, the PaleyWiener theorem, Hardy's interpolation formula and two inequalities due to Bernstein. Chapter III deals with FourierStieltjes transforms. After the basic properties are explained, distribution functions, positivedefinite functions and the uniqueness theorem of Offord are treated. The book is intended for undergraduate students and requires of them basic knowledge in real and complex analysis

Riemanns geometrische Ideen, ihre Auswirkung und ihre Verknüpfung mit der Gruppentheorie by
Hermann Weyl(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1988 in German and English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ganz in Hermann Weyls bekannt klarer Darstellung geschrieben, gibt dieser Beitrag einen Bericht über die Entstehung der grundlegenden Ideen, die der modernen Geometrie zugrunde liegen. Diese Schrift spiegelt in einzigartiger Weise Weyls mathematische Persönlichkeit wider. Sie richtet sich an alle, die sich mit Fragen der Topologiegruppentheorie, Differentialgeometrie und mathematischer Physik beschäftigen. From the foreword of the editor K. Chandrasekharan: "Written in Weyl's finest style, while he was rising forty, the article is an authentic report on the genesis and evolution of those fundamental ideas that underlie the modern conception of geometry. Part I is on the continuum, and deals with analysis situs, imbeddings, and coverings. Part II is on structure, and deals with infinitesimal geometry in its many aspects, metric, conformal, affine, and projective; with the question of homogeneity, homogeneous spaces from the grouptheoretical standpoint, the role of the metric field theories in physics, and the related problems of group theory. It is hoped that this article will be of interest to all those concerned with the growth and development of topology, group theory, differential geometry, geometric function theory, and mathematical physics. It bears the unmistakable imprint of Weyl's mathematical personality, and of his remarkable capacity to capture and delineate the transmutation of some of the nascent into the dominant ideas of the mathematics of our time"
