Presents a survey of the application of complex analysis in the theory of prime numbers
Offers an easy-to-understand presentation of the theory of distribution of prime numbers
Provides full proof of state-of-the-art results in the Riemann theory of zeta-function
Discusses philosophic aspects of universal properties of Riemann's zeta-function and the structure of the Universe
Contains several arithmetic problems dealing with number theory
This book examines the application of complex analysis methods to the theory of prime numbers. In an easy to understand manner, a connection is established between arithmetic problems and those of zero distribution for special functions. Main achievements in this field of mathematics are described. Indicated is a connection between the famous Riemann zeta-function and the structure of the universe, information theory, and quantum mechanics. The theory of Riemann zeta-function and, specifically, distribution of its zeros are presented in a concise and comprehensive way. The full proofs of some modern theorems are given. Significant methods of the analysis are also demonstrated as applied to fundamental problems of number theory.
