# Vistas of Special Functions by Shigeru Kanemitsu, Haruo Tsukada It is a distinct ebook for learning certain services via zeta-functions. Many vital formulation of specific features scattered through the literature can be found of their right positions and readers get enlightened entry to them during this ebook. The parts lined comprise: Bernoulli polynomials, the gamma functionality (the beta and the digamma function), the zeta-functions (the Hurwitz, the Lerch, and the Epstein zeta-function), Bessel capabilities, an creation to Fourier research, finite Fourier sequence, Dirichlet L-functions, the rudiments of advanced services and summation formulation. The Fourier sequence for the (first) periodic Bernoulli polynomial is successfully used, familiarizing the reader with the connection among designated services and zeta-functions.

Iwasawa Theory Elliptic Curves with Complex Multiplication: P-Adic L Functions

Within the final fifteen years the Iwasawa concept has been utilized with impressive luck to elliptic curves with complicated multiplication. a transparent but basic exposition of this conception is gifted during this book.

Following a bankruptcy on formal teams and native devices, the p-adic L capabilities of Manin-Vishik and Katz are built and studied. within the 3rd bankruptcy their relation to classification box thought is mentioned, and the functions to the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer are handled in bankruptcy four. complete proofs of 2 theorems of Coates-Wiles and of Greenberg also are provided during this bankruptcy which can, furthermore, be used as an advent to the more moderen paintings of Rubin.

The publication is essentially self-contained and assumes familiarity purely with primary fabric from algebraic quantity conception and the idea of elliptic curves. a few effects are new and others are provided with new proofs.
