Number Theory 1: Fermat's Dream

This is often the English translation of the unique eastern ebook. during this quantity, "Fermat's Dream", center theories in sleek quantity thought are brought. advancements are given in elliptic curves, $p$-adic numbers, the $\zeta$-function, and the quantity fields. This paintings provides a chic viewpoint at the ask yourself of numbers.

Initial-Boundary Value Problems and the Navier-Stokes Equations

This e-book offers an advent to the tremendous topic of preliminary and initial-boundary worth difficulties for PDEs, with an emphasis on purposes to parabolic and hyperbolic structures. The Navier-Stokes equations for compressible and incompressible flows are taken to illustrate to demonstrate the implications.

Special Cases (4) If the discriminant of a cubic polynomial with rational coefﬁcients is the sixth power of a√nonzero rational √ number, then 3 sin(2π/9), its roots are of the form r + s 3 sin(π/9), r + s √ r − s 3 sin(4π/9). Proof. (1) If x, y are integers and (x, y) satisﬁes 4x3 −3my 2 = m3 then letting u = −2x, v = y + m then u3 + v 3 = −8x3 + y 3 + 3y 2 m + 3ym2 + y 3 = −2m3 − 6my 2 + y 3 + 3y 2 m + 3ym2 + y 3 = (y − m)3 . Thus either x = 0 (which would imply −3y 2 = m2 , an absurdity) or y = ±m; in this case we have necessarily x = m.

For the equivalence of (1) and (2) we compute the Legendre symbol, using Gauss’ reciprocity law: −3 p = −1 p 3 p = (−1)(p−1)/2 (−1)(p−1)/2 p 3 = p . 3 So (−3/p) = +1 if and only if p ≡ 1 (mod 3), that is, p ≡ 1 (mod 6). For the equivalence of (2) and (3), we write X2 + X + 1 = X + 1 2 2 + 34 . 28 I. Special Cases 2 If there exists α ∈ Fp such that α2 + α + 1 = 0 then −3 = 4 α − 12 and conversely, if −3 = β 2 with β ∈ Fp , we take α = − 12 + β/2 so α2 + α + 1 = 0. 2. If k is a nonzero integer, if p is a prime, and p = c2 + 3d2 ∈ S, pk = a2 + 3b2 ∈ S then p divides ac ± 3bd and ad ∓ bc (with corresponding signs ) and k= ac ± 3bd p 2 +3 ad ∓ bc p ∈ S.
