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.

Pell Equations: Non-Principal Lagrange Criteria and Central Norms We provide a criterion for the central norm to be
any value in the simple continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt{D}$
for any non-square integer $D>1$. We also provide a simple criterion
for the solvability of the Pell equation $x^2-Dy^2=-1$ in terms of
congruence conditions modulo $D$.

Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for the Central Norm to Equal $2^h$ in the Simple Continued Fraction Expansion of $\sqrt{2^hc}$ for Any Odd $c>1$ |
Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for the Central Norm to Equal $2^h$ in the Simple Continued Fraction Expansion of $\sqrt{2^hc}$ for Any Odd $c>1$ We look at the simple continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt{D}$
for any $D=2^hc $ where $c>1$ is odd with a goal of
determining necessary and
sufficient conditions for the central norm (as determined by
the infrastructure of the underlying real quadratic order therein) to be
$2^h$. At the end of the paper, we also address the case where $D=c$
is odd and the central norm of $\sqrt{D}$ is equal to $2$.

Criteria for Simultaneous Solutions of $X^2 - DY^2 = c$ and $x^2 - Dy^2 = -c$ The purpose of this article is to provide criteria for the
simultaneous solvability of the Diophantine equations $X^2 - DY^2 =
c$ and $x^2 - Dy^2 = -c$ when $c \in \mathbb{Z}$, and $D \in
\mathbb{N}$ is not a perfect square. This continues work in
\cite{me}--\cite{alfnme}.

Invariant Measures and Natural Extensions We study ergodic properties of a family of interval maps that are
given as the fractional parts of certain real M\"obius
transformations. Included are the maps that are exactly
$n$-to-$1$, the classical Gauss map and the Renyi or backward
continued fraction map. A new approach is presented for deriving
explicit realizations of natural automorphic extensions and their
invariant measures.
