Instructor: Dr. Antal BALOG Text: Selected chapters of Harold Davenport, Multiplicative Number Theory. In case of departing from the book, and also for gaining some preliminary routine, supplements will be handed out. Prerequisite: General mathematical experience of the undergraduate level is expected. This includes elementary algebra (Abelian groups, vector spaces, systems of linear equations) and calculus (limits, derivatives, integration, infinite series). A first course of number theory (divisibility, congruences, Chinese Remainder Theorem, primitive roots and power residues) and a course of complex function theory (analytic functions, continuation, power series, complex line integrals, calculation of residues) are essential , although the basic concepts of the applied theories and theorems will always be explained. Taking CLX parallel to this course is enough. Course description: Our aim is to provide a classical introduction to analytic number theory, focused on the connection between the zeros of the Riemann z (s) -function and prime numbers. We will follow the history and development of a beautiful discipline, rich in problems, methods and ideas. The highlights are a proof of Dirichlet's Theorem about the distribution of primes in arithmetic progressions, and of the Prime Number Theorem, but the course is much more than just the proof of two famous theorems.

DIMACS Seminar Title: Quaternions, octonions, and now, 16-ons and $2^n$-ons; New kinds of numbers. Speaker: Warren D. Smith , DIMACS, Rutgers University, and Temple University Mathematics Department Date: Friday September 13, 2002, 1:10 pm Location: DIMACS Seminar Room, CoRE Building, Room 431A, Rutgers University. Abstract: The ``Cayley-Dickson process,'' starting from the real numbers, successively yields the complex numbers (dimension 2), quaternions (4), and octonions (8). Each contains all the previous ones as subalgebras. Famous Theorems, previously thought to close the book, state that these are the full set of division (or normed) algebras with $1$ over the real numbers. Their properties keep degrading: the reals are ordered and self-conjugate, but the complex numbers lose these properties; at the quaternions we lose commutativity; and at the octonions we lose associativity. If one keeps Cayley-Dickson doubling to get the 16D ``sedenions,'' zero-divisors appear. We introduce a different doubling process which also produces the complexes, quaternions, and octonions, but keeps going to yield $2^n$-dimensional normed algebraic structures

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Mathematics is commonly defined as the study of patterns of structure, change , and space ; more informally, one might say it is the study of 'figures and numbers'. In the formalist view, it is the investigation of axiomatically defined abstract structures using logic and mathematical notation ; other views are described in Philosophy of mathematics . Mathematics might be seen as a simple extension of spoken and written languages, with an extremely precisely defined vocabulary and grammar, for the purpose of describing and exploring physical and conceptual relationships. The specific structures that are investigated by mathematicians often have their origin in the natural sciences , most commonly in physics , but mathematicians also define and investigate structures for reasons purely internal to mathematics, because the structures may provide, for instance, a unifying generalization for several subfields, or a helpful tool for common calculations. Finally, many mathematicians study the areas they do for purely aesthetic reasons, viewing mathematics as an art form rather than as a practical or applied science . Some mathematicians like to refer to their subject as "the Queen of Sciences". Mathematics is often abbreviated to math (in American English ) or maths (in British English Table of contents 1 Overview and history of mathematics

Back to Math Words Alphabetical Index Antiparallels Almost every geometry student learns that a line through two sides of a triangle parallel to the third side (DE in figure) will cut off a triangle, ADE, that is similar to the original triangle ABC. Almost none of them are shown that the reflection of such a parallel line segment in the angle bisector will produce another segment cutting off a triangle AE'D' that is also similar to ABC. Such a segment is called an antiparallel . The antiparallel also creates a quadrilateral of the remaining piece of the triangle which is always cyclic, and therefore can be circumscribed. The opposite sides of any cyclic quadrilateral are thus referred to as antiparallels also, since extending any two opposite sides will create a pair of similar triangles also. In the famous books on the conic sections by Apollonius of Pergia he refers to this as a triangle lying "subcontrary wise". The only two planes cut through a cone that will produce a circle are the cuts parallel to the base, and the cut subcontrary or anti-parallel to the base. (book I, Proposition 9)
Arbelos was the Greek word for a knife used by a shoemaker to cut and trim leather. The name was applied by Archimedes (about 250 BC) to the region below bounded by three semi-circles.

This is the book from which I learnt Combinatorics the Erdosian way. One of the most pleasing qualities of the book is the bite-sized chapters. Perhaps this is one of the first books to start this trend. An earlier reviewer mentions the Ramsey theory chapter which I too would recommend.

I propose some topics on CR geometry. More precisely, we study the geometry and analysis on the unit balls in C n CR geometry studies properties of the boundary of a domain in C n . As we know, in mathematics, it is very important to study the relationship between a domain and its boundry. For example, the well-known Stokes's theorem, the Gauss-Bonnet formula, etc. f is a local equivalent map between two small pieces of the sphere , then f must be extended as an automorphism of the unit ball B . His theorem has been extended into many different levels. If one considers maps from B n to B N with N greater than n , i.e., the positive codimension case, Webster proved in 1978 that any such map from B n to B n n greater than or equal to 3) must be a trivial map, up to automorphisms of balls. In 1982, Faran proved that there are exactly four such maps from B to B , up to automorphisms of balls. Let us denote these four maps by F F F and F It remains a natural question: given any map F is isomorphic to which map F j (up to automorphsims of balls)?

Pythagorean Theorem
One of the most famous of theorems from geometry (and/or trigonometry) is Pythagoras’ brain child: “The sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle equals the square of the hypotenuse.” One of the best examples of the theorem is the classic 3 - 4 - 5 triangle. Clearly, But the theorem works for any right triangle (a right triangle being a triangle where one of the interior angles equals 90 degrees, and with the “hypotenuse” as the longest side, and opposite the 90 degree angle.) In general, a b d Another special case is: F F Ha! The Golden Mean strikes again! The Pythogorean Brotherhood The theorem may not have been entirely the personal work of Phythagoras, but may have evolved from the Pythagoreans (the sum total of the members who followed the teaching of Pythagoras). As such, the Pythagoreans were a minor tradition during Classical Greece an apparent combination of Greek philosophy and eastern ideas. The philosophical school was founded by Pythagoras himself circa 530 B.C.E. Many stories have been told about Pythagoras and his achievements, including his having competed and won prizes in the Olympic wrestling games at the age of eighteen, his having travelled to Egypt and Babylonia in order to learn the ancient wisdom of the priests there (thus the infusion of “eastern ideas”), and his alleged ability to tame a bear or stop an eagle in midair with a few magical words. He was also a masterful musician and physician, and had a Public Relations effort that way ahead of its time!

Lagrange's four-square theorem
Theorem 1 If n is a natural number then there exist integers x, y, z, w such that n = x +y +z +w This theorem was proved by Lagrange in 1770, though it had been stated without proof in 1621, by Bachet. Ask somebody to give you random three-digit numbers, and for each one see if you can find four squares that do it. They are always out there somewhere. For example, 260 = 15 To get an idea of how to approach the theorem, consider the problem of representing a number n as a sum of just two squares; in other words, we want to find integers x and y such that n = x +y . Equivalently, we want to find a point (x,y) with integer coordinates on the circle centred at the origin with radius n. The following picture shows the circles with radii
The circles that contain an integer point (represented by a black dot) are drawn in green; those that do not are shown in red. For example, the third circle has radius 3 and does not contain an integer point, so there are no integers x,y with x +y The question of which numbers can be represented as a sum of two squares is studied in For example, take n = 4693000. This can be factored as 2

54. History Of Mathematics - The Most Famous Teacher
The Most famous Teacher. 300 BC in Alexandria, first stated his five postulatesin his book The Elements that forms the base for all of his later theorems.
The Most Famous Teacher Euclid, who lived around 300 BC in Alexandria, first stated his five postulates in his book The Elements that forms the base for all of his later theorems. His first postulates were 1. To draw a straight line from any point to any other. 2. To produce a finite straight line continuously in a straight line. 3. To describe a circle with any center and any distance. 4. That all right angles are equal to each other. 5. That, if a straight line falling on two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, if produced indefinitely, meets on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles. To each triangle, there exists a similar triangle of arbitrary magnitude. Several other attempts to prove or disprove the fifth postulate have followed, notably that of Girolamo Saccheri. He assumed the fifth postulate to be false and attempted to derive a contradiction. Another mathematician, Gauss, started working on the postulate as early as 1792 while 15 years old. In 1813, after making little progress, he wrote In 1817, Gauss stated that the fifth postulate was independent from the other postulates, and therefore needed no proof from the others, and begun to work on a different geometry in which multiple lines can be parallel to another line through a given point. In fact, the fifth postulate has been called "the one sentence in the history of science that has given rise to more publication than any other."

Uniqueness theorems in the calculus of variations by the method of transformation groups
Wolfgang Reichel
Departement Mathematik, Universitaet Basel, Rheinsprung 21, CH-4051 Basel A classical question in the calculus of variations is the following: when does a functional L e e in IR , which map A into itself, and there interaction with L . If the group strictly decreases the values of L , i.e., if L [g e L , then u is the only critical point, provided structural assumptions on L hold. In a similar way E. Noether showed in 1918 her famous theorem that tranformations groups, which leave L invariant, imply a conservation law. Numerous examples of the uniquenes principle are found for elliptic boundary value problems, the theory of elasticity, and in geometric analysis.

From a theory of incompleteness to how to pack spheres in a box: this week we feature ten of the most famous theories in modern history. Created by Tormod Guldvog
Last updated September 14 2001 Most of us have heard about these theories, or at least some of them. But although they may be famous, they are not necessarily easy to understand.
Take Kepler's Conjecture, for example. It simply states that there is an ultimate way to pack spheres into a box. It has taken centuries of experiments and calculations to show that there are in fact an endless number of ways to do it - and scientists have yet to prove that there is one way which is better than the others.
Another great idea is Drake's Equation, which is meant to show that there is a good possibility that there are aliens out there. It is perhaps the least scientific of all the ideas we feature below, but it is also much easier to understand than the rest.

Fermat's Proof

History of Math

Background: P ierre de Fermat (pronounced Fair-mah) was born in Beaumont-de-Lomagne, France in August of 1601 and died in 1665. He is considered to be one of the greatest mathematicians of the seventeenth century. Fermat's father was a leather merchant and his mother's family was in the legal profession. Fermat attended a Franciscan monastery before moving on to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in civil law from the University of Orleans in 1631. He married, had five children and practiced law. For the most part, Math was a hobby for Fermat. Fermat was a busy lawyer and did not let his love of math completely take over his time. It's been said that Fermat never wanted anything to be published as he considered math to be his hobby. The only one thing he did publish - he did so anonymously. He sent many of his papers by mail to some of the best mathematicians in France. It was his link with Marin Mersenne that gave Fermat his international reputation. Fermat loved to dabble in math and rarely provide his proofs (evidence or procedures for reaching conclusions), he would state theorems but neglected the proofs! In fact, his most Famous work 'Fermat's Last Theorem' remained without a proof until 1993 when
