- Arithmetic functions and Dirichlet series,
- Characters and summation formulas,
- L-functions and Riemann's zeta-function,
- Exponential sums and Dirichlet polynomials,
- Sieve methods and applications of the Large Sieve,
- Equidistribution results for prime numbers in residual classes,
- holomorphic automorphic functions.
The students shall
- learn to transfer, develop and apply analytic methods to number theoretical questions,
- train analytical ways of thinking and working,
- learn modern techniques for scientific work in this field,
- practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
- improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.
None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis, Complex Analysis and Vector Analysis, Number Theory.
