He is also professor of philosophy at Queen's. Baxa, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, 2014. We warmly recommend this book for those who would like to have a glimpse on Ramanujan's mathematics. Researchers in number theory, graduate students who wish to enter into the area and non-specialists who wish to acquire an introduction to the subject will benefit by a study of this book. Ram Murty is head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's University, and is a Queen's research chair in mathematics. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1990, the Indian National Science Academy in 2008, and won the Coxeter-James Prize, Jeffery-Williams Prize, E. Giving a well-informed overview of related results it will continue to be an important source of information for graduate students and researchers.
Their aim is to survey some of Srinivasa Ramanujan's most significant achievements and the developments they have led to over the last decades. It is devoted to a recurring theme in number theory, namely that the non-vanishing of L-functions implies important arithmetical results. The Sato-Tate conjecture for the Ramanujan tau-function. Kumar Murty received his PhD from Harvard University. This volume develops methods for proving the non-vanishing of certain L-functions at points in the critical strip.
The authors would like to thank the Institut d'Estudis Catalans for their encouragementof thiswork throughtheFerranSunyeriBalaguerPrize. It's a great pleasure to read, and it's fine scholarship. Baxa, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, Vo. Steacie Fellowship, and the Killam Fellowship. Arithmetic of the partition function. The Legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan. It begins at a very basic level and continues to develop, providing readers with a theoretical foundation that allows them to understand the latest discoveries in the field.
The dist- bution of prime numbers in arithmetic progressions is intimately connected with non-vanishing properties of various L-functions. Moreover, he served on the board of directors of the Canadian Mathematical Society during 1995-1999 and as vice-president of the society during 2009-2011. In the 1950's, a new theme was introduced by Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer. It is devoted to a recurring theme in number theory, namely that the non-vanishing of L-functions implies important arithmetical results. Without being lost in the technicalities the reader will get a good look at the shape of many central questions.
His research areas include number theory, arithmetic geometry, and their applications. This volume is suitable as a first introduction to some of Ramanujan's remarkable and deep ideas. The exercises are of varying di? The deepest results are contained in Chapter 6 on quadratic twists of modular L-functions with connections to the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. One of the most attractive features of the monograph is that it begins at a very basic level and quickly develops enough aspects of the theory to bring the reader to a point where the latest discoveries as are presented in the final chapters can be fully appreciated. Kumar Murty, won the 1996 Balaguer Prize and was published by Birkhauser. Ramanujan's conjecture and l-adic representations. Giving a well-informed overview of related results it will continue to be an important source of information for graduate students and researchers.
Prime numbers and highly composite numbers. He was awarded the Coxeter-James Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Society in 1991, the E. Some nonlinear identities for divisor functions. Thus the book is written in a style that will appeal to both research mathematicians and students desiring to enter the exciting world of Ramanujan's mathematics. His research areas include number theory, modular forms, elliptic curves, and sieve theory.
This monograph brings together a collection of results on the non-vanishing of- functions. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1995 and a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences in 2011. . He served as editor-in-chief of the Journal of the Ramanujan Mathematical Society, and as editor of the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society. Given an elliptic curve E over a number? It is devoted to a recurring theme in number theory, namely that the non-vanishing of L-functions implies important arithmetical results.
