Recurrence sequences are of great intrinsic interest and have been a central part of number theory for many years. Moreover, these sequences appear almost everywhere in mathematics and computer science. This book surveys the modern theory of linear recurrence sequences and their generalizations. Particular emphasis is placed on the dramatic impact that sophisticated methods from Diophantine analysis and transcendence theory have had on the subject. Related work on bilinear recurrences and an emerging connection between recurrences and graph theory are covered. Applications and links to other areas of mathematics are described, including combinatorics, dynamical systems and cryptography, and computer science. The book is suitable for researchers interested in number theory, combinatorics, and graph theory.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium, ANTS 2006, held in Berlin, July 2006. The book presents 37 revised full papers together with 4 invited papers selected for inclusion. The papers are organized in topical sections on algebraic number theory, analytic and elementary number theory, lattices, curves and varieties over fields of characteristic zero, curves over finite fields and applications, and discrete logarithms.

Contributions by leading experts in the field provide a snapshot of current progress in polynomials and number theory.

The book treats four mathematical concepts which play a fundamental role in many different areas of mathematics: symbolic sums, recurrence (difference) equations, generating functions, and asymptotic estimates. Their key features, in isolation or in combination, their mastery by paper and pencil or by computer programs, and their applications to problems in pure mathematics or to "real world problems" (e.g. the analysis of algorithms) are studied. The book is intended as an algorithmic supplement to the bestselling "Concrete Mathematics" by Graham, Knuth and Patashnik.

This volume consists of a selection of papers based on presentations made at the international conference on number theory held in honor of Hugh Williams' sixtieth birthday. The papers address topics in the areas of computational and explicit number theory and its applications. The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in number theory.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Reachability Problems, RP 2012, held in Bordeaux, France, in September, 2012. The 8 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 15 submissions. The papers present current research and original contributions related to reachability problems in different computational models and systems such as algebraic structures, computational models, hybrid systems, logic and verification. Reachability is a fundamental problem that appears in several different contexts: finite- and infinite-state concurrent systems, computational models like cellular automata and Petri nets, decision procedures for classical, modal and temporal logic, program analysis, discrete and continuous systems, time critical systems, and open systems modeled as games.

Der Klassiker zum Thema bietet Lesern, die mit den Grundlagen der algebraischen Zahlentheorie vertraut sind, einen raschen Zugang zur Klassenkörpertheorie. Die Neuauflage ist eine verbesserte Version des 1969 in der Reihe B. I.-Hochschulskripten (Bibliographisches Institut Mannheim) erschienenen gleichnamigen Bandes. Das Werk besteht aus drei Teilen: Im ersten wird die Kohomologie der endlichen Gruppen behandelt, im zweiten die lokale Klassenkörpertheorie, der dritte Teil widmet sich der Klassenkörpertheorie der endlichen algebraischen Zahlkörper.

These six volumes include approximately 20,000 reviews of items in number theory that appeared in Mathematical Reviews between 1984 and 1996. This is the third such set of volumes in number theory. The first was edited by W.J. LeVeque and included reviews from 1940-1972; the second was edited by R.K. Guy and appeared in 1984.
