February 14, 1968 marked the thirtieth year since the death of Edmund Landau. The papers of this volume are dedicated by friends, students, and admirers to the memory of this outstanding scholar and teacher. To mention but one side of his original and varied scientific work, the results and effects of which cannot be dis cussed here, Edmund Landau performed one of his greatest services in developing the analytic theory of prime numbers from a subject accessible only with great difficulty even to the initiated few to the general estate of mathematicians. With the exception of the work of Chebyshev, Riemann, and Mertens, before Landau the problems of this theory were attempted only in a number of papers which were filled with gaps and errors. These problems were such that even Gauss abandoned them after several attempts in his youth, and they were described by N.H. Abel in a letter of 1823 and by O. Toeplitz in a lecture in 1930 as the deepest part of mathe matics. Clarification first began with the papers of Hadamard, de la Vallee Poussin, and von Mangoldt. At the end ofthe foreword to his work" Handbuch der Lehre von der Verteilung der Primzahlen" which appeared in 1909, Landau could thus remark with complete justification: " ... The difficulty of the previously unsolved problems has frightened nearly everyone away from the theory of prime numbers

Studies in pure mathematics : to the memory of Paul Turán( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, written by his friends, collaborators and students, is offered to the memory of Paul Tunin. Most of the papers they contributed discuss subjects related to his own fields of research. The wide range of topics reflects the versatility of his mathematical activity. His work has inspired many mathematicians in analytic number theory, theory of functions of a complex variable, interpolation and approximation theory, numerical algebra, differential equations, statistical group theory and theory of graphs. Beyond the influence of his deep and important results he had the exceptional ability to communicate to others his enthusiasm for mathematics. One of the strengths of Turan was to ask unusual questions that became starting points of many further results, sometimes opening up new fields of research. We hope that this volume will illustrate this aspect of his work adequately. Born in Budapest, on August 28, 1910, Paul Turan obtained his Ph. D. under L. Fejer in 1935. His love for mathematies enabled him to work even under inhuman circumstances during the darkest years of the Second World War. One of his major achievements, his power sum method originated in this period. After the war he was visiting professor in Denmark and in Princeton. In 1949 he became professor at the Eotvos Lorand University of Budapest, a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and a leading figure of the Hungarian mathematical community

An asymptotisch darstellt{laquo}, wenn . a;n 1 1m--= 1, n=oow(n) oder anders ausgedrückt, wenn a:n = w(n) (1 + Bn), wobei Wir werden dies mit bezeichnen. Zur Bestimmung eines solchen asymptotischen Ausdrucks w(n) hat DAR Boux1 eine sehr allgemeine Methode gegeben. Er bildet die Potenzreihe (1) der komplexen Veränderlichen z und zeigt, daß der asymptotische Wert von a:n von denjenigen Singularitätastellen der analytischen Funktion f(z) abhängt, die auf der Peripherie des Konvergenzkreises der Potenzreihe (1) liegen. Ich werde jetzt mit einigen Worten die DARBOUXschen Resultate dar legen. Damit die DARBouxsche Methode anwendbar sei, muß notwendigerweise vorausgesetzt werden, daß der Radius des Konvergenzkreises der Potenz reihe (l) eine von Null und von + oo verschiedene positive Zahl R ist. Nehmen wir ferner an, daß die Anzahl der Singularitätastellen (JylJ = \Y2\ = · · · = JykJ = R) der Funktionf(z) (eigentlich der durch die Reihe (1) gewinnbaren unmittel baren analytischen Fortsetzung derselben) auf dem Konvergenzkreis mit dem Radius R endlich ist. Da nun DARBOUX beweist, daß die Singularitäta stellen Yv y, --, Yk solche>>Teile

Paul Turán, one of the greatest Hungarian mathematicians, was born 100 years ago, on August 18, 1910. To celebrate this occasion the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics, the János Bolyai Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Institute of Eötvös Loránd University organized an international conference devoted to Paul Turán's main areas of interest: number theory, selected branches of analysis, and selected branches of combinatorics. The conference was held in Budapest, August 22-26, 2011. Some of the invited lectures reviewed different aspects of Paul Tur
