Number Theory : Volume II: Analytic and  Modern Tools, Hardback Book

Number Theory : Volume II: Analytic and Modern Tools Hardback

Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics series

Description

This book deals with several aspects of what is now called "explicit number theory." The central theme is the solution of Diophantine equations, i.e., equations or systems of polynomial equations which must be solved in integers, rational numbers or more generally in algebraic numbers.

This theme, in particular, is the central motivation for the modern theory of arithmetic algebraic geometry.

In this text, this is considered through three of its most basic aspects.

The local aspect, global aspect, and the third aspect is the theory of zeta and L-functions.

This last aspect can be considered as a unifying theme for the whole subject.
