Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 210; 1998; 399 ppMSC: Primary 11; Secondary 14;
To observe the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Ramanujan Mathematical Society, an international conference on Discrete Mathematics and Number Theory was held in January 1996 in Tiruchirapalli, India. This volume contains proceedings from the number theory component of that conference. Papers are divided into four groups: arithmetic algebraic geometry, automorphic forms, elementary and analytic number theory and transcendental number theory. This work deals with recent progress in current aspects of number theory and covers a wide variety of topics.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory and related subjects.
