This quantity includes a choice of papers in Analytic and ordinary quantity idea in reminiscence of Professor Paul Erdös, one of many maximum mathematicians of this century. Written through many top researchers, the papers take care of the latest advances in a wide selection of issues, together with arithmetical features, major numbers, the Riemann zeta functionality, probabilistic quantity concept, homes of integer sequences, modular varieties, walls, and q-series.
Audience: Researchers and scholars of quantity conception, research, combinatorics and modular types will locate this quantity to be stimulating.
