# Topic: Analytic number theory

 Analytic number theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Analytic number theory is the branch of number theory that uses methods from mathematical analysis. Multiplicative number theory deals with the distribution of the prime numbers, applying Dirichlet series as generating functions. Another not very well-known and recent method is variational number theory which extends the analytic number theory to functionals instead of using simply Calculus on finite dimensional spaces. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Analytic_number_theory   (430 words)

 Read This: A Primer of Analytic Number Theory Analytic number theory is a discipline that uses the tools of analysis — primarily complex analysis and Fourier series — to study the properties of the integers. The distribution of primes is a central subject in analytic number theory, and this topic is introduced in Chapter 5 with a heuristic discussion of the prime number theorem. Chapter 13 is entitled "Analytic Theory of Algebraic Numbers;" it includes a discussion of binary quadratic forms, of the class number formula for negative discriminants, and of Siegel zeros. www.maa.org /reviews/stoppleant.html   (783 words)

 11: Number theory Number theory is one of the oldest branches of pure mathematics, and one of the largest. For example, "additive number theory" asks about ways of expressing an integer N as a sum of integers a_i in a set A. If we set f(z) = Sum exp(2 pi i a_i z), then f(z)^k has exp(2 pi i N z) as a summand iff N is a sum of k of the a_i. Questions in algebraic number theory often require tools of Galois theory; that material is mostly a part of 12: Field theory (particularly the subject of field extensions). www.math.niu.edu /~rusin/known-math/index/11-XX.html   (2572 words)

 Diophantine approximation and analytic number theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07) The objective of this workshop is to gather together researchers with expertise in both Diophantine approximation and analytic number theory in an environment that fosters the presentation and sharing of the latest ideas in both fields. Number theory is unique among the major fields of mathematics in that it combines problems and questions of incredible simplicity and accessibility with truly deep and technical tools and methods for addressing these questions. A reduction of a problem in one area of number theory (and indeed in many other mathematical fields as well) often involves a very simply stated question in the other area, which can seem difficult to resolve if one is not well-versed in the techniques of the second area. www.pims.math.ca /birs/workshops/2004/04w5507   (296 words)

 Analytic Number Theory Analytic number theory is the application of the analysis of functions of a complex variable to problems involving number theory (the study of the integers). The examples there may begin to convince you that an amazing amount of number theory is contained in the properties of this one function. A final remark: the analytic methods sketched here can be vastly extended beyond what we’ve seen, providing a wealth of information on the distribution of primes as well as tantalizing partial results on the famous Goldbach Conjecture (that every even number is the sum of 2 primes). www.cs.earlham.edu /~mclarnan/Dad/numbertheory.html   (798 words)

 MTH-3E12 : Analytic Number Theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07) It was 100 year before a proof was found, and this, using 'analytic' techniques that had been developed during the nineteenth century. The 'Prime Number Theorem', as it is called, was one of the early successes of analytic number theory. It is important to stress that although the subject uses analytic tools, it is not analysis per se. www.mth.uea.ac.uk /maths/syllabuses/0405/4E2504.html   (452 words)

 Math 571 Analytic Number Theory I Another is to show that every large odd number is the sum of three prime numbers (the ternary Goldbach (1690-1764) problem). A related open question is whether every even number is prime or the sum of two primes (the binary Goldbach problem), and an associated question is whether there are infinitely many primes p such that p + 2 is also prime (the twin prime problem). Fundamental to many of the analytic methods in number theory are questions as to how closely a given real number can be approximated by a rational number with denominator not exceeding a given quantity, and generalisations of this are related to Minkowski's theorem in the geometry of numbers. www.math.psu.edu /rvaughan/Math571F04.html   (447 words)
