The Smarandache Function
by C. Dumitrescu, V. Seleacu
Publisher: Erhus University Press 1996
Number of pages: 137
The function named in the title of this book is originated from the exiled Romanian mathematician Florentin Smarandache, who has significant contributions not only in mathematics, but also in literature. This text introduces the Smarandache function and discusses it generalisations.

Beginning with Gauss, the study of quadratic residues and nonresidues has subsequently led directly to many of the ideas and techniques that are used everywhere in number theory today, and the primary goal of these lectures is to use this study ...

The author describes the construction of modular elliptic curves giving an algorithm for their computation. Then algorithms for the arithmetic of elliptic curves are presented. Finally, the results of the implementations of the algorithms are given.

This is a book combining two essays: 'Continuity and irrational numbers' - Dedekind's way of defining the real numbers from rational numbers; and 'The nature and meaning of numbers' where Dedekind offers a precise explication of the natural numbers.

The focus is on elliptic curves over function fields over finite fields. We explain the main classical results on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture in this context and its connection to the Tate conjecture about divisors on surfaces.
