Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 566; 2012; 344 ppMSC: Primary 11; 14; 22; 32; 57;
The volume contains the proceedings of the “Second International Workshop on Zeta Functions in Algebra and Geometry” held May 3–7, 2010 at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Zeta functions can be naturally attached to several mathematical objects, including fields, groups, and algebras. The conference focused on the following topics: arithmetic and geometric aspects of local, topological, and motivic zeta functions, Poincaré series of valuations, zeta functions of groups, rings, and representations, prehomogeneous vector spaces and their zeta functions, and height zeta functions.
This book is published in cooperation with Real Sociedád Matematica Española.ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in zeta functions in number theory, geometry, and algebra.
