Meine Zahlen, meine Freunde: Glanzlichter der Zahlentheorie

Paulo Ribenboim behandelt Zahlen in dieser außergewöhnlichen Sammlung von Übersichtsartikeln wie seine persönlichen Freunde. In leichter und allgemein zugänglicher Sprache berichtet er über Primzahlen, Fibonacci-Zahlen (und das Nordpolarmeer! ), die klassischen Arbeiten von Gauss über binäre quadratische Formen, Eulers berühmtes primzahlerzeugendes Polynom, irrationale und transzendente Zahlen.

T. 2 Auxiliary theorems about polynomials We need a few theorems about polynomials with integer coeffIcients, which are also of A polynomial interest in another connection. the coeffIcient of x n is 1. The content f(x) I(f) of degree n is called monic when of a polynomial f is the greatest common divisor of its coeffIcients. Theorem 1. (Gauss's lemma). Let g and h be polynomials with integer coefficients. Then I(gh) = I(g)I(h). Proof. Without loss of generality we can assume that g and h both have content 1.

A = -2b. Then Let a = c. Then Now we suppose, conversely, that the reduced fonn (a,b,c) is carried to the reduced form (a',b',c') by the transfonnation B = a' = au2 + b' = auu' and (~~:) 2buv + cv with det B = 1. Then 2 + b(uv'+u'v) + cvv' (15) (16) CHAPTER 2 18 Multiplication of (15) by a gives By (14), aa' 5; (4/3) ID 1 and hence We first consider the case This implies u a 1u' I 5; 1b I + = v' = ±1 Ib' 1 5; a. This means either u' v =0 = O. e. b' = b, =a c' 1v I uv' = 1, a' and b' - b =c 1b I + Ib'I = a, and because of (14) we have of Theorem 8 holds.

Soc. Reg. Sci. Gottingensis Rec. 6 (1828». This great work, which as late as 1900 was regarded by Darboux as the most self-contained and useful introduction to the study of differential geometry, was Gauss's most important published contribution to geometry. Gauss's motivation for the geometry of curved surfaces came from astronomy and the Hannover land survey, with which he was occupied for several years. Riemann developed Gauss's thoughts on geometry further. In this book we present them in the framework given by Riemann.
