Modular Functions and Dirichlet Series in Number Theory - Graduate Texts in Mathematics 41 (Paperback)Tom M. Apostol (author)
- We can order this
A new edition of a classical treatment of elliptic and modular functions with some of their number-theoretic applications, this text offers an updated bibliography and an alternative treatment of the transformation formula for the Dedekind eta function. It covers many topics, such as Hecke's theory of entire forms with multiplicative Fourier coefficients, and the last chapter recounts Bohr's theory of equivalence of general Dirichlet series.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"Apostol is an excellent writer of mathematics and the topics that are covered in this book are covered thoroughly in a concise, precise manner. ... the writing is characterized by its easy, readable, fluid style. Each chapter is complemented with a nice set of exercises." (Alvaro Lozano-Robledo, The Mathematical Association of America, June, 2011)
