Infinite Families of $A_4$-Sextic Polynomials In this article we develop a test to determine whether a sextic
polynomial that is irreducible over $\mathbb{Q}$ has Galois group isomorphic
to the alternating group $A_4$. This test does not involve the
computation of resolvents, and we use this test to construct several
infinite families of such polynomials.

Fourier Coefficients of Vector-valued Modular Forms of Dimension $2$ We prove the following Theorem. Suppose that $F=(f_1, f_2)$ is a $2$-dimensional vector-valued modular form
on $\operatorname{SL}_2(\mathbb{Z})$ whose component functions $f_1, f_2$ have rational Fourier coefficients
with bounded denominators. Then $f_1$ and $f_2$ are classical modular forms on a congruence subgroup of the modular group.

JeÅmanowicz' Conjecture with Congruence Relations. II Let $a,b$ and $c$ be primitive Pythagorean numbers such that
$a^{2}+b^{2}=c^{2}$ with $b$ even.
In this paper, we show that if $b_0 \equiv \epsilon \pmod{a}$
with $\epsilon \in \{\pm1\}$
for certain positive divisors $b_0$ of $b$,
then the Diophantine equation $a^{x}+b^{y}=c^z$ has only the
positive solution $(x,y,z)=(2,2,2)$.

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 $n\to\infty$.

Factorisation of Two-variable $p$-adic $L$-functions Let $f$ be a modular form which is non-ordinary at $p$. Loeffler has
recently constructed four two-variable $p$-adic $L$-functions
associated to $f$. In the case where $a_p=0$, he showed that, as in
the one-variable case, Pollack's plus and minus splitting applies to
these new objects. In this article, we show that such a splitting can
be generalised to the case where $a_p\ne0$ using Sprung's logarithmic
matrix.

On Convolutions of Convex Sets and Related Problems We prove some results concerning covolutions, the
additive energy and sumsets of convex sets and its generalizations. In
particular, we show that if a set $A=\{a_1,\dots,a_n\}_\lt \subseteq
\mathbb R$ has
the property that for every fixed
$1\leqslant d\lt n,$ all differences $a_i-a_{i-d}$, $d\lt i\lt n,$ are distinct, then
$|A+A|\gg |A|^{3/2+c}$ for a constant $c\gt 0.$

On Complex Explicit Formulae Connected with the MÃ¶bius Function of an Elliptic Curve We study analytic properties function $m(z, E)$, which is defined on the upper half-plane as an integral from the shifted $L$-function of an elliptic curve. We show that $m(z, E)$ analytically continues to a meromorphic function on the whole complex plane and satisfies certain functional equation. Moreover, we give explicit formula for $m(z, E)$ in the strip $|\Im{z}|\lt 2\pi$.

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.

Conjugacy Classes and Binary Quadratic Forms for the Hecke Groups In this paper we give a lower bound
with respect to block length
for the trace of non-elliptic conjugacy classes
of the Hecke groups.
One consequence of our bound
is that there are finitely many
conjugacy classes of a given trace in any Hecke group.
We show that another consequence of our bound
is that
class numbers are finite for
related hyperbolic \( \mathbb{Z}[\lambda] \)-binary quadratic forms.
We give canonical class representatives
and calculate class numbers
for some classes of hyperbolic \( \mathbb{Z}[\lambda] \)-binary quadratic forms.

On the Counting Function of Elliptic Carmichael Numbers We give an upper bound for the number elliptic Carmichael numbers $n \le x$

Carmichael meets Chebotarev For any finite Galois extension $K$ of $\mathbb Q$
and any conjugacy class $C$ in $\operatorname {Gal}(K/\mathbb Q)$,
we show that there exist infinitely many Carmichael numbers
composed solely of primes for which the associated class of Frobenius
automorphisms is $C$. This result implies that for every natural
number $n$ there are infinitely many Carmichael numbers of the form
$a^2+nb^2$ with $a,b\in\mathbb Z $.

Small Prime Solutions to Cubic Diophantine Equations Let $a_1, \cdots, a_9$ be non-zero integers and $n$ any integer. Suppose
that $a_1+\cdots+a_9 \equiv n( \textrm{mod}\,2)$ and $(a_i, a_j)=1$ for $1 \leq i \lt j \leq 9$.
In this paper we prove that (i) if $a_j$ are not all of the same sign, then the above cubic
equation has prime solutions satisfying
$p_j \ll |n|^{1/3}+\textrm{max}\{|a_j|\}^{14+\varepsilon};$
and (ii) if all $a_j$ are positive and $n \gg \textrm{max}\{|a_j|\}^{43+\varepsilon}$, then the cubic
equation $a_1p_1^3+\cdots +a_9p_9^3=n$ is soluble in primes $p_j$.
This result is the extension of the linear and quadratic relative problems.

A Generalization of a Theorem of Boyd and Lawton The Mahler measure of a nonzero $n$-variable polynomial $P$ is the integral of
$\log|P|$ on the unit $n$-torus. A result of Boyd and Lawton says that
the Mahler measure of a multivariate polynomial is the limit of Mahler
measures of univariate polynomials. We prove the analogous
result for different extensions of Mahler measure such as generalized
Mahler measure (integrating the maximum of $\log|P|$ for possibly
different $P$'s),
multiple Mahler measure (involving products of $\log|P|$ for possibly
different $P$'s), and higher Mahler measure (involving $\log^k|P|$).

On the Average Number of Square-Free Values of Polynomials We obtain an asymptotic formula for the number
of square-free integers in $N$ consecutive values
of polynomials on average over integral
polynomials of degree at most $k$ and of
height at most $H$, where $H \ge N^{k-1+\varepsilon}$
for some fixed $\varepsilon\gt 0$.
Individual results of this kind for polynomials of degree $k \gt 3$,
due to A. Granville (1998),
are only known under the $ABC$-conjecture.

On Mertens' Theorem for Beurling Primes Let $1 \lt p_1 \leq p_2 \leq p_3 \leq \dots$ be an infinite sequence
$\mathcal{P}$ of real numbers for which $p_i \to \infty$, and associate to
this sequence the \emph{Beurling zeta function} $\zeta_{\mathcal{P}}(s):=
\prod_{i=1}^{\infty}(1-p_i^{-s})^{-1}$. Suppose that for some constant
$A\gt 0$, we have
$\zeta_{\mathcal{P}}(s) \sim A/(s-1)$, as $s\downarrow 1$. We prove that
$\mathcal{P}$ satisfies an analogue of a classical theorem of Mertens:
$\prod_{p_i \leq x}(1-1/p_i)^{-1} \sim A \e^{\gamma} \log{x}$, as
$x\to\infty$.
Here $\e = 2.71828\ldots$ is the base of the natural logarithm and
$\gamma = 0.57721\ldots$ is the usual Euler--Mascheroni constant. This
strengthens a recent theorem of Olofsson.

Quantum Limits of Eisenstein Series and Scattering States We identify the quantum limits of scattering states
for the modular surface. This is obtained through the study of quantum

line. We provide a range of stability for the quantum unique

On the Sum of Digits of Numerators of Bernoulli Numbers Let $b\gt 1$ be an integer. We prove that for almost all $n$, the sum of the
digits in base $b$ of the numerator of the Bernoulli number $B_{2n}$
exceeds $c\log n$, where $c:=c(b)\gt 0$ is some constant depending on
$b$.

Equivariant Forms: Structure and Geometry In this paper we study the notion of equivariant forms introduced in
the authors' previous works. In particular, we completely classify all the
equivariant forms for a subgroup of
$\operatorname{SL}_2(\mathbb{Z})$
by means of the cross-ratio, the weight
2 modular forms, the quasimodular forms, as well as differential forms
of a Riemann surface and sections of a canonical line bundle.

On the Notion of Visibility of Torsors Let $J$ be an abelian variety and
$A$ be an abelian subvariety of $J$, both defined over $\mathbf{Q}$.
Let $x$ be an element of $H^1(\mathbf{Q},A)$.
Then there are at least two definitions of $x$ being visible in $J$:
one asks that the torsor corresponding to $x$ be isomorphic over $\mathbf{Q}$
to a subvariety of $J$, and the other asks that $x$ be in the kernel
of the natural map $H^1(\mathbf{Q},A) \to H^1(\mathbf{Q},J)$. In this article, we
clarify the relation between the two definitions.

Structure in Sets with Logarithmic Doubling Suppose that $G$ is an abelian group, $A \subset G$ is finite with $|A+A| \leq K|A|$ and $\eta \in (0,1]$ is a parameter.
Our main result is that there is a set $\mathcal{L}$ such that
\begin{equation*}
|A \cap \operatorname{Span}(\mathcal{L})| \geq K^{-O_\eta(1)}|A| \quad\text{and}\quad |\mathcal{L}| = O(K^\eta\log |A|).
\end{equation*}
We include an application of this result to a generalisation of the Roth--Meshulam theorem due to Liu and Spencer.

Linear Forms in Monic Integer Polynomials We prove a necessary and sufficient condition on the list of
nonzero integers $u_1,\dots,u_k$, $k \geq 2$, under which a monic
polynomial $f \in \mathbb{Z}[x]$ is expressible by a linear form
$u_1f_1+\dots+u_kf_k$ in monic polynomials $f_1,\dots,f_k \in
\mathbb{Z}[x]$. This condition is independent of $f$. We also show that if
this condition holds, then the monic polynomials $f_1,\dots,f_k$
can be chosen to be irreducible in $\mathbb{Z}[x]$.
