Articles during this quantity are according to talks given on the Gauss-Dirichlet convention held in Göttingen on June 20-24, 2005. The convention honored the a hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the dying of C.-F. Gauss and the two hundredth anniversary of the delivery of J.-L. Dirichlet. the quantity starts off with a definitive precis of the existence and paintings of Dirichlet and keeps with 13 papers through major specialists on study subject matters of present curiosity in quantity thought that have been at once motivated via Gauss and Dirichlet. one of the issues are the distribution of primes (long mathematics progressions of primes and small gaps among primes), type teams of binary quadratic varieties, numerous elements of the idea of $L$-functions, the speculation of modular types, and the learn of rational and crucial ideas to polynomial equations in numerous variables. Titles during this sequence are co-published with the Clay arithmetic Institute (Cambridge, MA).

Then, on December 1, 1858, Rebecka died all of a sudden and completely unexpectedly of a stroke. Everybody suspected that Dirichlet would not for long survive this turn of fate. 2], p. ): “Dirichlet’s condition was hopeless, he knew precisely how things were going for him, but he faced death calmly, which was edifying to observe. And now the poor Grandmother! Her misery ... to lose also her last surviving child, ... was terrible to observe. It was obvious that Flora, the only child still in the house, could not stay there.

In the original work these series were introduced by means of suitable primitive roots and roots of unity, which are the values of the characters. g. [Lan], vol. I, p. 391 ff. 2], p. ). For the sake of conciseness we use the modern language of characters: By definition, a Dirichlet character mod m is a homomorphism χ : (Z/mZ)× → S 1 , where (Z/mZ)× denotes the group of prime residue classes mod m and S 1 the unit circle in C. To any such χ corresponds a map (by abuse of notation likewise denoted by the same letter) χ : Z → C such that a) χ(n) = 0 if and only if (m, n) > 1, b) χ(kn) = χ(k)χ(n) for all k, n ∈ Z, c) χ(n) = χ(k) whenever k ≡ n (mod m), namely, χ(n) := χ(n + mZ) if (m, n) = 1.
