Arithmetic Primitives for Uniform Distribution Modulo 1

This project is about techniques relevant for the theory of uniform distribution modulo 1 of sequences and its applications in the field of random number generation and quasi‐Monte Carlo methods. It is funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund and has started in february 2014. (Peter Hellekalek)

Former Projects

EMMA - Experimentieren mit mathematischen Algorithmen

A cooperative project between the Department of Mathematics, University of Salzburg and the HTL Braunau (Clemens Fuchs, Karl-Josef Fuchs, Wolfgang Schmid, Andreas Schröder)

Explicit Problems in Diophantine Analysis and Geometry

The project is funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund and has started 2012. The place of research was initially at the Institute for Analysis and Computational Number Theory (Math A), TU Graz. The project was shifted to the Department of Mathematics, University of Salzburg in 2013. (Clemens Fuchs)

Diophantine equations, arithmetic progressions and their applications

One of the questions the unit sum number problem tries to answer is which number fields have the property that its ring of integers is generated by its group of units. Moreover, this project also deals with questions concerning arithmetic progressions on algebraic curves. In the course of this, various methods from diophantine analysis and algebraic number theory are used, such as the theory of digit expansions and symbolic computations (Gröbner bases).
