This book considers a new class of non-commutative zeta functions which encode the structure of the subgroup lattice in infinite groups. The book explores the analytic behaviour of these functions together with an investigation of functional equations. Many important examples of zeta functions are calculated and recorded providing an important data base of explicit examples and methods for calculation+-+K6529259085342ocn067293687visu20060.23The story of 1HistoryDocumentary television programsA humor-inflected history of the of the number one, covering military applications in ancient Rome, the measurement of distances in India, and the decimal system created by Leibnitz+-+335741842532452214ocn551173256visu20080.22Du Sautoy, MarcusThe story of math how numbers explain our universe and reveal unseen worldsHistoryBiographyDiscs 1-2. The story of maths. Without mathematics, there would be no physics, chemistry, or astronomy. No architecture. No commerce. No accurate maps or precise time-keeping, therefore no dependable long-range navigation. No geometry, statistics, or calculations of any kind. No computers. In this four-part series, University of Oxford Professor Marcus du Sautoy takes viewers on a journey through the ages and around the world to trace the development of mathematics and see how math has shaped human civilization2468ocn795533133visu20110.19The codeRulesAuthor and Oxford University professor Marcus du Sautoy sets out to solve mathematical mysteries in an engaging and accessible BBC documentary. Du Sautoy travels from Chartres Cathedral to Grand Central Station in search of the mysterious hidden code that can unlock the very laws of the universe2459ocn044578774book20000.88New horizons in pro-p groupsThe impetus for current research in pro-p groups comes from four main directions: from new applications in number theory, which continue to be a source of deep and challenging problems; from the traditional problem of classifying finite p-groups; from questions arising in infinite group theory; and finally, from the younger subject of profinite group theory. A correspondingly diverse range of mathematical techniques is being successfully applied, leading to new results and pointing to exciting new directions of research. In this work important theoretical developments are carefully presented by leading mathematicians in the field, bringing the reader to the cutting edge of current research. With a systematic emphasis on the construction and examination of many classes of examples, the book presents a clear picture of the rich universe of pro-p groups, in its unity and diversity. Thirty open problems are discussed in the appendix. For graduate students and researchers in group theory, number theory, and algebra, this work will be an indispensable reference text and a rich source of promising avenues for further exploration+-+36269126352259ocn040631680book19990.84Dixon, John DAnalytic pro-p groupsAn up-to-date treatment of analytic pro-p groups for graduate students and researchers+-+46650167052007ocn141379399book20070.27Du Sautoy, MarcusFinding moonshine : a mathematician's journey through symmetry"Marcus du Sautoy journeys from the pyramid to the football, from fundamental particles to our ideas of art, from insect life to architecture, from computer science to psychology, and explores what is perhaps the most significant concept in mathematics. He shows that symmetry is at the basis of communication and evolutionary biology; at the very heart of life. And he brings us face to face with the oddball mathematicians, both past and present, who have battled to understand symmetry's elusive qualities."--BOOK JACKET+-+36196725551645ocn679929548book20100.31Du Sautoy, MarcusThe number mysteries : a mathematical odyssey through everyday lifePopular works"Every time we download music, take a flight across the Atlantic or talk on our cell phones, we are relying on great mathematical inventions. In The Number Mysteries, one of our generations foremost mathematicians Marcus du Sautoy offers a playful and accessible examination of numbers and how, despite efforts of the greatest minds, the most fundamental puzzles of nature remain unsolved. Du Sautoy tells about the quest to predict the future from the flight of asteroids to an impending storm, from bending a ball like Beckham to forecasting population growth. He brings to life the beauty behind five mathematical puzzles that have contributed to our understanding of the world around us and have helped develop the technology to cope with it.

Professor Marcus du Sautoy investigates mathematical progress during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries in Europe. Topics include the linking of algebra and geometry by René Descartes; the properties of prime numbers, discovered by Pierre Fermat; Isaac Newton's development of calculus; Leonhard Euler's development of topology; the modular arithmetic of Carl Friedrich Gauss; and the insights of Bernhard Riemann into the properties of objects1065ocn077532829book20050.70Du Sautoy, MarcusLa symphonie des nombres premiers : essai1039ocn076495234book20040.29Du Sautoy, MarcusDie Musik der Primzahlen : auf den Spuren des grössten Rätsels der Mathematik922ocn700414682visu20090.50The language of the universe mathematics in ancient timesHistoryBiographyIn this program, Professor Marcus du Sautoy explores mathematical milestones of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Greece.
