Topics in the Theory of Quadratic Residues
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 160

Description:
Beginning with the fundamental contributions of Gauss, the study of quadratic residues and nonresidues has subsequently led directly to many of the key ideas and techniques that are used everywhere in number theory today, and the primary goal of these lectures is to use this study as a window through which to view the development of some of those ideas and techniques.

by - University of Georgia
The goal is to find and explore open questions in both geometry of numbers -- e.g. Lattice Point Enumerators, the Ehrhart-Polynomial, Minkowski's Convex Body Theorems, Minkowski-Hlawka Theorem, ... -- and its applications to number theory.

Book cover: Lectures On Irregularities Of DistributionLectures On Irregularities Of Distribution
by - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
The theory of Irregularities of Distribution began as a branch of Uniform Distributions, but is of independent interest. In these lectures the author restricted himself to distribution problems with a geometric interpretation.
