By Fred Diamond,Jerry Shurman

This ebook introduces the speculation of modular types, from which all rational elliptic curves come up, with a watch towards the Modularity Theorem. dialogue covers elliptic curves as advanced tori and as algebraic curves; modular curves as Riemann surfaces and as algebraic curves; Hecke operators and Atkin-Lehner idea; Hecke eigenforms and their mathematics houses; the Jacobians of modular curves and the Abelian forms linked to Hecke eigenforms. because it offers those principles, the e-book states the Modularity Theorem in quite a few kinds, concerning them to one another and bearing on their purposes to quantity thought. The authors suppose no heritage in algebraic quantity concept and algebraic geometry. routines are included.

A Course in p-adic Analysis (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

Came upon on the flip of the twentieth century, p-adic numbers are usually utilized by mathematicians and physicists. this article is a self-contained presentation of easy p-adic research with a spotlight on analytic subject matters. It deals many positive factors not often taken care of in introductory p-adic texts comparable to topological types of p-adic areas inside of Euclidian area, a distinct case of Hazewinkel’s practical equation lemma, and a therapy of analytic parts.

Elliptic Tales: Curves, Counting, and Number Theory

Elliptic stories describes the newest advancements in quantity idea via the most interesting unsolved difficulties in modern mathematics—the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture. during this publication, Avner Ash and Robert Gross consultant readers during the arithmetic they should comprehend this desirable challenge.

The Theory of Remainders (Dover Books on Mathematics)

An ingenious advent to quantity concept, this special approach employs a couple of fictional characters, Ant and Gnam. Ant leads Gnam via numerous theories, and jointly, they positioned the theories into action—applying linear diophantine equations to soccer scoring, utilizing a black-magic machine to simplify difficulties in modular buildings, and constructing fascinating variations to the principles of chess.

Numeri e Crittografia (UNITEXT) (Italian Edition)

Il libro tratta di metodi di crittografia e sistemi, con particolare enfasi alla teoria dei numeri. Il libro è rivolto agli studenti universitari del nuovo ordinamento che debbano seguire un corso base di teoria dei numeri e crittografia. Il quantity è impostato in modo chiaro e sistematico, in modo da rendere facilmente accessibile l. a. materia agli studenti di matematica e informatica, fornendo peraltro parecchie descrizioni di applicazioni computazionali.
