Advanced topics in computational number theory by
Henri Cohen(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present book addresses a number of specific topics in computational number theory whereby the author is not attempting to be exhaustive in the choice of subjects. The book is organized as follows. Chapters 1 and 2 contain the theory and algorithms concerning Dedekind domains and relative extensions of number fields, and in particular the generalization to the relative case of the round 2 and related algorithms. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 contain the theory and complete algorithms concerning class field theory over number fields. The highlights are the algorithms for computing the structure of (Z_K/m)^*, of ray class groups, and relative equations for Abelian extensions of number fields using Kummer theory. Chapters 1 to 5 form a homogeneous subject matter which can be used for a 6 months to 1 year graduate course in computational number theory. The subsequent chapters deal with more miscellaneous subjects. Written by an authority with great practical and teaching experience in the field, this book together with the author's earlier book will become the standard and indispensable reference on the subject

Number theory by

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The central theme of this graduatelevel number theory textbook 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 aspects. The first is the local aspect: one can do analysis in padic fields, and here the author starts by looking at solutions in finite fields, then proceeds to lift these solutions to local solutions using Hensel lifting. The second is the global aspect: the use of number fields, and in particular of class groups and unit groups. This classical subject is here illustrated through a wide range of examples. The third aspect deals with specific classes of equations, and in particular the general and Diophantine study of elliptic curves, including 2 and 3descent and the Heegner point method. These subjects form the first two parts, forming Volume I. The study of Bernoulli numbers, the gamma function, and zeta and Lfunctions, and of padic analogues is treated at length in the third part of the book, including many interesting and original applications. Much more sophisticated techniques have been brought to bear on the subject of Diophantine equations, and for this reason, the author has included five chapters on these techniques forming the fourth part, which together with the third part forms Volume II. These chapters were written by Yann Bugeaud, Guillaume Hanrot, Maurice Mignotte, Sylvain Duquesne, Samir Siksek, and the author, and contain material on the use of Galois representations, points on highergenus curves, the superfermat equation, Mihailescu's proof of Catalan's Conjecture, and applications of linear forms in logarithms. The book contains 530 exercises of varying difficulty from immediate consequences of the main text to research problems, and contain many important additional results

Class field theory : from theory to practice by
Georges Gras(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Global class field theory is a major achievement of algebraic number theory, based on the functorial properties of the reciprocity map and the existence theorem. The author works out the consequences and the practical use of these results by giving detailed studies and illustrations of classical subjects (classes, ideles, ray class fields, symbols, reciprocity laws, Hasse's principles, the GrunwaldWang theorem, Hilbert's towers, ...). This book, intermediary between the classical literature published in the sixties and the recent computational literature, gives much material in an elementary way, and is suitable for students, researchers, and all who are fascinated by this theory."BOOK JACKET

Calculs effectifs des points entiers et rationnels sur les courbes by
Sylvain Duquesne(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2001 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cette thèse est constituée de trois parties indépendantes concernant la détermination des points rationnels et entiers sur les courbes algébriques. Nous nous sommes particulièrement intéressé aux aspects algorithmiques de ces problèmes. Dans la première partie, nous avons considéré la famille des courbes elliptiques définies par les "simplest cubic fields". Nous décrivons une méthode pour calculer exactement tous les points entiers sur ces courbes. Une étude expérimentale sur un grand nombre de courbes nous a amené à observer certains phénomènes que nous prouvons par la suite. En particulier, nous donnons explicitement tous les points entiers sur ces courbes lorsque leur rang vaut 1. La deuxième partie concerne le calcul des points rationnels sur les courbes de plus grand genre. Dans le but de calculer ces points lorsque le rang de la jacobienne est supérieur au genre de la courbe, Flynn et Wetherell utilisent le groupe formel d'une courbe elliptique de rang l. Nous développons une version explicite du théorème de préparation de Weierstrass pour généraliser cette méthode au cas des courbes elliptiques de rang supérieur à 1, ce qui permet de traiter de nouvelles équations diophantiennes. La dernière partie de cette thèse consiste à calculer les traces de la loi de groupe sur la variété de Kummer d'une courbe hyperelliptique de genre 3 définie par un polynôme de degré 7. Ces traces permettent de construire une fonction hauteur sur la jacobienne. Nous pouvons alors espérer d'une part en déduire une procédure effective de calcul du sousgroupe de torsion et d'autre part effectuer des descentes infinies

Minoration de la hauteur de NéronTate sur les variétés abéliennes sur la conjecture de Lang et Silverman by
Fabien Mehdi Pazuki(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cette thèse est consacrée à l'étude d'une conjecture de Lang et Silverman de minoration de la hauteur de NéronTate sur les variétés abéliennes sur les corps de nombres. Le premier chapitre décrit le matériel nécessaire à l'étude des chapitres suivants et fixe les notations et normalisations. On montre dans le second chapitre que la conjecture est vraie pour certaines classes de variétés abéliennes de dimension 2, en particulier pour les jacobiennes ayant potentiellement bonne réduction et restant loin des produits de courbes elliptiques dans l'espace de modules. Le second chapitre renferme aussi des corollaires allant dans la direction de la conjecture de borne uniforme sur la torsion et de majoration uniforme du nombre de points rationnels d'une courbe de genre 2. Le troisième chapitre généralise les résultats de minoration du second chapitre aux jacobiennes de courbes huperelliptiques de genre g ≥ 2. Le quatrième chapitre contient une étude de la restriction des scalaires à la Weil et une étude asymptotique de la hauteur des points de Heegner sur les jacobiennes de courbes modulaires. Le cinquième chapitre est une annexe contenant des formules explicites utiles pour la dimension 2 et un paragraphe sur un raisonnement par isogénies

Computability of Julia sets by
Mark Braverman(
)
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Computational hardness of Julia sets is the main subject of this book. By definition, a computable set in the plane can be visualized on a computerscreen with an arbitrarily high magnification. There are countless programs to draw Julia sets. Yet, as the authors have discovered, it is possible to constructively produce examples of quadratic polynomials, whose Julia sets are not computable. This result is striking it says that while a dynamical system can be described numerically with an arbitrary precision, the picture of the dynamics cannot be visualized. The book summarizes the present knowledge about the computational properties of Julia sets in a selfcontained way. It is accessible to experts and students with interest in theoretical computer science or dynamical systems."Jacket
