Riemann's Zeta Function

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, 2001 - Mathematics - 315 pages
3 Reviews
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.

I found this book in a small shop in Thailand and bought it on a whim.
Not really knowing anything about the subject, I was still able to follow the arguments of the first 5 chapters.
That made me
keen enough to brush up on the background material and re-read it, this time as far as chapter 10 (where googling "adjoint transforms" brought me to this page!)
I like this book enough to bother writing a review of it on my itouch on the beach!
I would recommend it for graduate students and lapsed phd'ers.

About the author (2001)

Harold M. Edwards is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at New York University. His previous books are Advanced Calculus (1969, 1980, 1993), Riemann's Zeta Function (1974, 2001), Fermat's Last Theorem (1977), Galois Theory (1984), Divisor Theory (1990) and Linear Algebra (1995). Readers of his Advanced Calculus will know that his preference for constructive mathematics is not new. In 1980 he was awarded the Steele Prize for mathematical exposition for the Riemann and Fermat books.
