In recent years, enrollment in these courses has been excellent, typically ranging from 10 to We list below some of the topics courses taught between and The Bateman Prize and the Bateman Fellowship are given annually for outstanding research in number theory. They are named for former Professor Paul T.

Probabilistic number theory is a subfield of number theory, which explicitly uses probability to answer questions of number theory. One basic idea underlying it is . Appendix C. Number theory. C Multiplicative functions and Euler Probabilistic number theory is currently evolving very rapidly, and uses more and.

Their values are usually distributed in a very complicated way. If one traces the change of values of such functions as the argument runs through the sequence of natural numbers, one obtains a highly chaotic graph such as is usually observed when the additive and multiplicative properties of numbers are considered simultaneously.
A function may deviate significantly from its average value. Here it turns out that large deviations occur rather seldom. Among the asymptotic laws for 3 , the most interesting ones are of local or integral form.
