Articles during this quantity are in keeping with talks given on the Gauss-Dirichlet convention held in Gottingen on June 20, 2005. The convention venerated the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the dying of C.-F. Gauss and the two hundredth anniversary of the delivery of J.-L. Dirichlet. the quantity starts off with a definitive precis of the lifestyles and paintings of Dirichlet and keeps with 13 papers via top specialists on learn subject matters of present curiosity in quantity idea that have been at once inspired through Gauss and Dirichlet. one of the issues are the distribution of primes (long mathematics progressions of primes and small gaps among primes), category teams of binary quadratic varieties, a number of points of the speculation of $L$-functions, the speculation of modular types, and the learn of rational and critical recommendations to polynomial equations in different variables.

Moreover, during the following years, Liouville saw to it that French translations of many of Dirichlet’s papers were published in his journal. 2], pp. 421–422. The friendship of the two men was deepened and extended to the families during Dirichlet’s visits to Liouville’s home in Toul in fall of 1853 and in March 1856, when Dirichlet utilized the opportunity to attend a meeting of the French Academy of 6He became an external member in 1876. 30 ¨ JURGEN ELSTRODT Sciences in the capacity of a foreign member to which he had been elected in 1854.

Hence the problem of representation needs to be solved only for a representative system of the finitely many equivalence classes of binary forms of fixed discriminant D. Associated with each form f is its group of automorphs containing all matrices αβ ∈ SL2 (Z) transforming f into itself. The really interesting quantity now is γ δ the number R(n, f ) of representations of n by f which are inequivalent with respect to the natural action of the group of automorphs. Then R(n, f ) turns out to be finite, but still there is no simple formula for this quantity.
