On products of blocks of consecutive integers

Yıldız, Burak
In this thesis, an old conjecture of Erdös and Graham concerning integer squares obtained from products of disjoint blocks of consecutive integers is revisited. From arithmetic geometry point of view, the conjecture concerns the structure of integral points on certain projective hypersurfaces. These hypersurfaces are analyzed geometrically. The relation between the Erdös-Graham conjecture and some well-known conjectures in diophantine geometry and in number theory are explained. As for the computational aspect of the problem, an efficient algorithm for computer search is developed and in certain computationally challenging cases new numerical examples are obtained.


On maximal curves and linearized permutation polynomials over finite fields
Özbudak, Ferruh (Elsevier BV, 2001-08-08)
The purpose of this paper is to construct maximal curves over large finite fields using linearized permutation polynomials. We also study linearized permutation polynomials under finite field extensions.
On multiplication in finite fields
Cenk, Murat; Özbudak, Ferruh (2010-04-01)
We present a method for multiplication in finite fields which gives multiplication algorithms with improved or best known bilinear complexities for certain finite fields. Our method generalizes some earlier methods and combines them with the recently introduced complexity notion (M) over cap (q)(l), which denotes the minimum number of multiplications needed in F-q in order to obtain the coefficients of the product of two arbitrary l-term polynomials modulo x(l) in F-q[x]. We study our method for the finite ...
The classical involution theorem for groups of finite Morley rank
Berkman, A (Elsevier BV, 2001-09-15)
This paper gives a partial answer to the Cherlin-Zil'ber Conjecture, which states that every infinite simple group of finite Morley rank is isomorphic to an algebraic group over an algebraically closed field. The classification of the generic case of tame groups of odd type follows from the main result of this work, which is an analogue of Aschbacher's Classical Involution Theorem for finite simple groups.

Galois structure of modular forms of even weight
Gurel, E. (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
We calculate the equivariant Euler characteristics of powers of the canonical sheaf on certain modular curves over Z which have a tame action of a finite abelian group. As a consequence, we obtain information on the Galois module structure of modular forms of even weight having Fourier coefficients in certain ideals of rings of cyclotomic algebraic integers.

On the computation of generalized division polynomials
Küçüksakallı, Ömer (2015-01-01)
We give an algorithm to compute the generalized division polynomials for elliptic curves with complex multiplication. These polynomials can be used to generate the ray class fields of imaginary quadratic fields over the Hilbert class field with no restriction on the conductor.
