# Advanced Analytic Number Theory: L-Functions

Share this page
*Carlos Julio Moreno*

Since the pioneering work of Euler, Dirichlet, and Riemann, the
analytic properties of L-functions have been used to study the distribution of
prime numbers. With the advent of the Langlands Program, L-functions have
assumed a greater role in the study of the interplay between Diophantine
questions about primes and representation theoretic properties of Galois
representations.

This book provides a complete introduction to the most significant class of
L-functions: the Artin-Hecke L-functions associated to finite-dimensional
representations of Weil groups and to automorphic L-functions of principal type
on the general linear group. In addition to establishing functional equations,
growth estimates, and non-vanishing theorems, a thorough presentation of the
explicit formulas of Riemann type in the context of Artin-Hecke and automorphic
L-functions is also given.

The survey is aimed at mathematicians and graduate students who want to
learn about the modern analytic theory of L-functions and their applications in
number theory and in the theory of automorphic representations. The
requirements for a profitable study of this monograph are a knowledge of basic
number theory and the rudiments of abstract harmonic analysis on locally
compact abelian groups.
