This book provides an introduction to algebraic dynamical systems and their connection with number theory. This relationship is illustrated by many example. .It could serve as a textbook or as interesting supplementary reading for a course in algebraic dynamics or elliptic curves. the authors follow the sound pedagogical practice of giving detailed proofs of special cases and providing references to the literature for more general results.

Graham Everest, Thomas Ward. The main theme of the book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises. The genesis of the measure in a paper by Lehmer is looked at, which is extremely well-timed due to the revival of interest following the work of Boyd and Deninger on special values of Mahler's measure. The authors'approach is very down to earth as they cover the rationals, assuming no prior knowledge of elliptic curves.

A polynomial learning algorithm for a perceptron with binary bonds and random patterns is investigated within dynamic mean field theory. A discontinuous freezing transition is found at a temperature where the entropy is still positive. Critical slowing down is observed approaching this temperature from above. The fraction of errors resulting from this learning procedure is finite in the. thermodynamic limit for all temperatures and all finite values of the number of patterns per bond. Monte-Carlo simulations on larger samples (N127) are in quantitative agreement.

The main theme of this book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises. This includes a large body of results on Mahlers measure of the height of a polynomial. The chapters include examples and particular computations, with all special calc The main theme of this book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises.

Arithmetic geometry and algebraic dynamical systems are flourishing areas . By working with polynomials rather than algebraic numbers we avoid local heights and p-adic valuations.

Arithmetic geometry and algebraic dynamical systems are flourishing areas of mathematics. Both subjects have highly technical aspects, yet both of fer a rich supply of down-to-earth examples. Both have much to gain from each other in techniques and, more importantly, as a means for posing (and sometimes solving) outstanding problems. This book is in tended as a starting point for either topic, but is in content no more than an invitation. We hope to show that a rich common vein of ideas permeates both areas, and hope that further exploration of this commonality will result.

Heights of Polynomials a.has been added to your Cart. Reality is otherwise: they are very much intertwined, and this is what this unusual and very interesting book is about. The authors write about all this with erudition and charm. They have included more than a hundred exercises.

The main theme of the book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises One of the most important results about Mahler's measure is that it is the entropy associated to a dynamical system.

The main theme of the book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises. One of the most important results about Mahler's measure is that it is the entropy associated to a dynamical system. The authors devote space to discussing this and to giving some convincing and original examples to explain this phenomenon.
