Riemann S Zeta Function


Riemann S Zeta Function Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Superb high-level study of one of the most influential classics in mathematics examines landmark 1859 publication entitled “On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude,” and traces developments in theory inspired by it. Topics include Riemann's main formula, the prime number theorem, the Riemann-Siegel formula, large-scale computations, Fourier analysis, and other related topics. English translation of Riemann's original document appears in the Appendix.

Book News Annotation:

Edwards elaborates on Bernard Riemann's eight-page paper On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude, published in German in 1859. His goal is not to supplant the classic work, but to provide mathematics students access to it. Indeed an English translation of the original is appended. Academic Press published the 1974 edition.
