Elementary number theory, group theory, and Ramanujan graphs by Giuliana P Davidoff ( )
16 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text is a self contained treatment of expander graphs and in particular their explicit construction. Expander graphs are both highly connected but sparse, and besides their interest within combinatorics and graph theory, they also find various applications in computer science and engineering. The reader needs only a background in elementary algebra, analysis and combinatorics; the authors supply the necessary background material from graph theory, number theory, group theory and representation theory. The text can therefore be used as a brief introduction to these subjects as well as an illustration of how such topics are synthesised in modern mathematics

Some applications of modular forms by Peter Sarnak ( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of modular forms and especially the so-called 'Ramanujan conjectures' have been applied to resolve problems in combinatorics, computer science, analysis and number theory. This tract, based on the Wittemore Lectures given at Yale University, is concerned with describing some of these applications
Random matrices, Frobenius eigenvalues, and monodromy by Nicholas M Katz ( Book )

Selected papers by Peter D Lax ( )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A renowned mathematician who considers himself both applied and theoretical in his approach, Peter Lax has spent most of his professional career at NYU, making significant contributions to both mathematics and computing. He has written several important published works and has received numerous honours including the National Medal of Science, the Lester R. Ford Award, the Chauvenet Prize, the Semmelweis Medal, the Wiener Prize, and the Wolf Prize. Several students he has mentored have become leaders in their fields. These two volumes span the years from 1952 up until 1999, and cover many varying topics, from functional analysis, partial differential equations, and numerical methods to conservation laws, integrable systems and scattering theory. After each paper, or collection of papers, is a commentary placing the paper in context and where relevant discussing more recent developments. Many of the papers in these volumes have become classics and should be read by any serious student of these topics. In terms of insight, depth, and breadth, Lax has few equals. The reader of this selection will quickly appreciate his brilliance as well as his masterful touch. Having this collection of papers in one place allows one to follow the evolution of his ideas and mathematical interests and to appreciate how many of these papers initiated topics that developed lives of their own
The Selberg trace formula and related topics : proceedings of the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference held July 22-28, 1984 with support from the National Science Foundation by AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference in the Mathematical Sciences on the Selberg Trace Formula and Related Topics ( Book )
6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extremal Riemann surfaces ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are discussions of Hurwitz surfaces and surfaces with large cyclic groups of automorphisms. Also discussed are surfaces which are natural candidates for solving extremal problems such as triangular, modular, and arithmetic surfaces, and curves in various group theoretically defined curve families. Other allied topics are theta identities, quadratic periods of Abelian differentials, Teichmuller disks, binary quadratic forms, and spectral asymptotics of degenerating hyperbolic three manifolds
Automorphic forms and applications ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The theory of automorphic forms has seen dramatic developments in recent years. In particular, important instances of Langlands functoriality have been established. This volume presents three weeks of lectures from the IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute Summer School on automorphic forms and their applications. It addresses some of the general aspects of automorphic forms, as well as certain recent advances in the field." "This volume is recommended for independent study or an advanced topics course. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in automorphic forms and number theory."--BOOK JACKET
