On a conjecture of Livingston
In an attempt to resolve a folklore conjecture of Erdös regarding the non-vanishing at $s=1$ of the $L$-series attached to a periodic arithmetical function with period $q$ and values in $\{ -1, 1\} $, Livingston conjectured the $\bar{\mathbb{Q}}$ - linear independence of logarithms of certain algebraic numbers. In this paper, we disprove Livingston's conjecture for composite $q \geq 4$, highlighting that a new approach is required to settle Erdös's conjecture. We also prove that the conjecture is true for prime $q \geq 3$, and indicate that more ingredients will be needed to settle Erdös's conjecture for prime $q$.

Keywords:non-vanishing of L-series, linear independence of logarithms of algebraic numbers

Power series rings over Prufer $v$-multiplication domains, II
Let $D$ be an integral domain, $X^1(D)$ be the set of height-one prime ideals of $D$, $\{X_{\beta}\}$ and $\{X_{\alpha}\}$ be two disjoint nonempty sets of indeterminates over $D$, $D[\{X_{\beta}\}]$ be the polynomial ring over $D$, and $D[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1$ be the first type power series ring over $D[\{X_{\beta}\}]$. Assume that $D$ is a Prüfer $v$-multiplication domain (P$v$MD) in which each proper integral $t$-ideal has only finitely many minimal prime ideals (e.g., $t$-SFT P$v$MDs, valuation domains, rings of Krull type). Among other things, we show that if $X^1(D) = \emptyset$ or $D_P$ is a DVR for all $P \in X^1(D)$, then ${D[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1}_{D - \{0\}}$ is a Krull domain. We also prove that if $D$ is a $t$-SFT P$v$MD, then the complete integral closure of $D$ is a Krull domain and ht$(M[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1)$ = $1$ for every height-one maximal $t$-ideal $M$ of $D$.

Zero-divisor graphs of Ore extensions over reversible rings
Let $R$ be an associative ring with identity. First we prove some results about zero-divisor graphs of reversible rings. Then we study the zero-divisors of the skew power series ring $R[[x;\alpha]]$, whenever $R$ is reversible and $\alpha$-compatible. Moreover, we compare the diameter and girth of the zero-divisor graphs of $\Gamma(R)$, $\Gamma(R[x;\alpha,\delta])$ and $\Gamma(R[[x;\alpha]])$, when $R$ is reversible and $(\alpha,\delta)$-compatible.

Keywords:zero-divisor graphs, reversible rings, McCoy rings, polynomial rings, power series rings

Benamar, H.; Chandoul, A.; Mkaouar, M.
On the Continued Fraction Expansion of Fixed Period in Finite Fields
The Chowla conjecture states that, if $t$ is any given positive integer, there are infinitely many prime positive integers $N$ such that $\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})=t$, where $\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})$ is the period length of the continued fraction expansion for $\sqrt{N}$. C. Friesen proved that, for any $k\in \mathbb{N}$, there are infinitely many square-free integers $N$, where the continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt{N}$ has a fixed period. In this paper, we describe all polynomials $Q\in \mathbb{F}_q[X] $ for which the continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt {Q}$ has a fixed period, also we give a lower bound of the number of monic, non-squares polynomials $Q$ such that $\deg Q= 2d$ and $ Per \sqrt {Q}=t$.

Transformation Formulas for Bilinear Sums of Basic Hypergeometric Series
A master formula of transformation formulas for bilinear sums of basic hypergeometric series is proposed. It is obtained from the author's previous results on a transformation formula for Milne's multivariate generalization of basic hypergeometric series of type $A$ with different dimensions and it can be considered as a generalization of the Whipple-Sears transformation formula for terminating balanced ${}_4 \phi_3$ series. As an application of the master formula, the one variable cases of some transformation formulas for bilinear sums of basic hypergeometric series are given as examples. The bilinear transformation formulas seem to be new in the literature, even in one variable case.

Higher Moments of Fourier Coefficients of Cusp Forms
Let $S_{k}(\Gamma)$ be the space of holomorphic cusp forms of even integral weight $k$ for the full modular group $SL(2, \mathbb{Z})$. Let $\lambda_f(n)$, $\lambda_g(n)$, $\lambda_h(n)$ be the $n$th normalized Fourier coefficients of three distinct holomorphic primitive cusp forms $f(z) \in S_{k_1}(\Gamma), g(z) \in S_{k_2}(\Gamma), h(z) \in S_{k_3}(\Gamma)$ respectively. In this paper we study the cancellations of sums related to arithmetic functions, such as $\lambda_f(n)^4\lambda_g(n)^2$, $\lambda_g(n)^6$, $\lambda_g(n)^2\lambda_h(n)^4$, and $\lambda_g(n^3)^2$ twisted by the arithmetic function $\lambda_f(n)$.

Diophantine Approximation for Certain Algebraic Formal Power Series in Positive Characteristic
In this paper, we study rational approximations for certain algebraic power series over a finite field. We obtain results for irrational elements of strictly positive degree satisfying an equation of the type \begin{equation} \alpha=\displaystyle\frac{A\alpha^{q}+B}{C\alpha^{q}} \end{equation} where $(A, B, C)\in (\mathbb{F}_{q}[X])^{2}\times\mathbb{F}_{q}^{\star}[X]$. In particular, we will give, under some conditions on the polynomials $A$, $B$ and $C$, well approximated elements satisfying this equation.

The Smallest Pisot Element in the Field of Formal Power Series Over a Finite Field
Dufresnoy and Pisot characterized the smallest Pisot number of degree $n \geq 3$ by giving explicitly its minimal polynomial. In this paper, we translate Dufresnoy and Pisot's result to the Laurent series case. The aim of this paper is to prove that the minimal polynomial of the smallest Pisot element (SPE) of degree $n$ in the field of formal power series over a finite field is given by $P(Y)=Y^{n}-\alpha XY^{n-1}-\alpha^n,$ where $\alpha$ is the least element of the finite field $\mathbb{F}_{q}\backslash\{0\}$ (as a finite total ordered set). We prove that the sequence of SPEs of degree $n$ is decreasing and converges to $\alpha X.$ Finally, we show how to obtain explicit continued fraction expansion of the smallest Pisot element over a finite field.

A Generalised Kummer-Type Transformation for the ${}_pF_p(x)$ Hypergeometric Function
In a recent paper, Miller derived a Kummer-type transformation for the generalised hypergeometric function ${}_pF_p(x)$ when pairs of parameters differ by unity, by means of a reduction formula for a certain Kampé de Fériet function. An alternative and simpler derivation of this transformation is obtained here by application of the well-known Kummer transformation for the confluent hypergeometric function corresponding to $p=1$.

On $L^{1}$-Convergence of Fourier Series under the MVBV Condition
Let $f\in L_{2\pi }$ be a real-valued even function with its Fourier series $% \frac{a_{0}}{2}+\sum_{n=1}^{\infty }a_{n}\cos nx,$ and let $S_{n}(f,x) ,\;n\geq 1,$ be the $n$-th partial sum of the Fourier series. It is well known that if the nonnegative sequence $\{a_{n}\}$ is decreasing and $\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty }a_{n}=0$, then% \begin{equation*} \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty }\Vert f-S_{n}(f)\Vert _{L}=0 \text{ if and only if }\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty }a_{n}\log n=0. \end{equation*}% We weaken the monotone condition in this classical result to the so-called mean value bounded variation (MVBV) condition. The generalization of the above classical result in real-valued function space is presented as a special case of the main result in this paper, which gives the $L^{1}$% -convergence of a function $f\in L_{2\pi }$ in complex space. We also give results on $L^{1}$-approximation of a function $f\in L_{2\pi }$ under the MVBV condition.

Some Infinite Products of Ramanujan Type
In his ``lost'' notebook, Ramanujan stated two results, which are equivalent to the identities \[ \prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1-q^n)^5}{(1-q^{5n})} =1-5\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{d} d \Big) q^n \] and \[ q\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1-q^{5n})^5}{(1-q^{n})} =\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{n/d} d \Big) q^n. \] We give several more identities of this type.

McIntosh, Richard J.
Second Order Mock Theta Functions
In his last letter to Hardy, Ramanujan defined 17 functions $F(q)$, where $|q|<1$. He called them mock theta functions, because as $q$ radially approaches any point $e^{2\pi ir}$ ($r$ rational), there is a theta function $F_r(q)$ with $F(q)-F_r(q)=O(1)$. In this paper we establish the relationship between two families of mock theta functions.

A Bernstein--Walsh Type Inequality and Applications
A Bernstein--Walsh type inequality for $C^{\infty }$ functions of several variables is derived, which then is applied to obtain analogs and generalizations of the following classical theorems: (1) Bochnak--Siciak theorem: a $C^{\infty }$\ function on $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ that is real analytic on every line is real analytic; (2) Zorn--Lelong theorem: if a double power series $F(x,y)$\ converges on a set of lines of positive capacity then $F(x,y)$\ is convergent; (3) Abhyankar--Moh--Sathaye theorem: the transfinite diameter of the convergence set of a divergent series is zero.

Baker-Type Estimates for Linear Forms in the Values of $q$-Series
We obtain lower estimates for the absolute values of linear forms of the values of generalized Heine series at non-zero points of an imaginary quadratic field~$\II$, in particular of the values of $q$-exponential function. These estimates depend on the individual coefficients, not only on the maximum of their absolute values. The proof uses a variant of classical Siegel's method applied to a system of functional Poincar\'e-type equations and the connection between the solutions of these functional equations and the generalized Heine series.

Commutators and Analytic Dependence of Fourier-Bessel Series on $(0,\infty)$
In this paper we study the boundedness of the commutators $[b, S_n]$ where $b$ is a $\BMO$ function and $S_n$ denotes the $n$-th partial sum of the Fourier-Bessel series on $(0,\infty)$. Perturbing the measure by $\exp(2b)$ we obtain that certain operators related to $S_n$ depend analytically on the functional parameter $b$.
