Liu, H. Q.
The Dirichlet divisor problem of arithmetic progressions
We design an elementary method to study the problem, getting an asymptotic formula which is better than Hooley's and Heath-Brown's results for certain cases.

Wright, Thomas
Variants of Korselt's Criterion
Under sufficiently strong assumptions about the first term in an arithmetic progression, we prove that for any integer $a$, there are infinitely many $n\in \mathbb N$ such that for each prime factor $p|n$, we have $p-a|n-a$. This can be seen as a generalization of Carmichael numbers, which are integers $n$ such that $p-1|n-1$ for every $p|n$.

Asymptotic Improvements of Lower Bounds for the Least Common Multiples of Arithmetic Progressions
For relatively prime positive integers $u_0$ and $r$, we consider the least common multiple $L_n:=\mathop{\textrm{lcm}}(u_0,u_1,\dots, u_n)$ of the finite arithmetic progression $\{u_k:=u_0+kr\}_{k=0}^n$. We derive new lower bounds on $L_n$ that improve upon those obtained previously when either $u_0$ or $n$ is large. When $r$ is prime, our best bound is sharp up to a factor of $n+1$ for $u_0$ properly chosen, and is also nearly sharp as $n\to\infty$.

Keywords:least common multiple, arithmetic progression

Rational Points in Arithmetic Progressions on $y^2=x^n+k$
Let $C$ be a hyperelliptic curve given by the equation $y^2=f(x)$ for $f\in\mathbb{Z}[x]$ without multiple roots. We say that points $P_{i}=(x_{i}, y_{i})\in C(\mathbb{Q})$ for $i=1,2,\dots, m$ are in arithmetic progression if the numbers $x_{i}$ for $i=1,2,\dots, m$ are in arithmetic progression. In this paper we show that there exists a polynomial $k\in\mathbb{Z}[t]$ with the property that on the elliptic curve $\mathcal{E}': y^2=x^3+k(t)$ (defined over the field $\mathbb{Q}(t)$) we can find four points in arithmetic progression that are independent in the group of all $\mathbb{Q}(t)$-rational points on the curve $\mathcal{E}'$. In particular this result generalizes earlier results of Lee and V\'{e}lez. We also show that if $n\in\mathbb{N}$ is odd, then there are infinitely many $k$'s with the property that on curves $y^2=x^n+k$ there are four rational points in arithmetic progressions. In the case when $n$ is even we can find infinitely many $k$'s such that on curves $y^2=x^n+k$ there are six rational points in arithmetic progression.

Keywords:arithmetic progressions, elliptic curves, rational points on hyperelliptic curves
