Exceptional Covers of Surfaces Consider a finite morphism $f: X \rightarrow Y$ of smooth, projective varieties over a finite field $\mathbf{F}$. Suppose $X$ is the vanishing locus in $\mathbf{P}^N$ of $r$ forms of degree at most $d$. We show that there is a constant $C$ depending only on $(N,r,d)$ and $\deg(f)$ such that if $|{\mathbf{F}}|>C$, then $f(\mathbf{F}): X(\mathbf{F}) \rightarrow Y(\mathbf{F})$ is injective if and only if it is surjective.

Periods of Modular Forms and Imaginary Quadratic Base Change Let $f$ be a classical newform of weight $2$ on the upper half-plane $\mathcal H^{(2)}$, $E$ the corresponding strong Weil curve, $K$ a class number one imaginary quadratic field, and $F$ the base change of $f$ to $K$. Under a mild hypothesis on the pair $(f,K)$, we prove that the period ratio $\Omega_E/(\sqrt{|D|}\Omega_F)$ is in $\mathbb Q$. Here $\Omega_F$ is the unique minimal positive period of $F$, and $\Omega_E$ the area of $E(\mathbb C)$. The claim is a specialization to base change forms of a conjecture proposed and numerically verified by Cremona and Whitley.

Spacings Between Integers Having Typically Many Prime Factors We show that the sequence of integers which have nearly the typical number of distinct prime factors forms a Poisson process. More precisely, for $\delta$ arbitrarily small and positive, the nearest neighbor spacings between integers n with $|\omega(n) - log log n| < (log log n)^{\delta}$ obey the Poisson distribution law.

Pisot Numbers from $\{ 0, 1 \}$-Polynomials A \emph{Pisot number} is a real algebraic integer greater than 1, all of whose conjugates lie strictly inside the open unit disk; a \emph{Salem number} is a real algebraic integer greater than 1, all of whose conjugate roots are inside the closed unit disk, with at least one of them of modulus exactly 1. Pisot numbers have been studied extensively, and an algorithm to generate them is well known. Our main result characterises all Pisot numbers whose minimal polynomial is derived from a Newman polynomial Â- one with $\{0,1\}$-coefficients Â- and shows that they form a strictly increasing sequence with limit $(1+\sqrt{5}) / 2$. It has long been known that every Pisot number is a limit point, from both sides, of sequences of Salem numbers. We show that this remains true, from at least one side, for the restricted sets of Pisot and Salem numbers that are generated by Newman polynomials.

Computing Polynomials of the Ramanujan $t_n$ Class Invariants We compute the minimal polynomials of the Ramanujan values $t_n$,
where $n\equiv 11 \mod 24$, using the Shimura reciprocity law.
These polynomials can be used for defining the Hilbert class field
of the imaginary quadratic field $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-n})$ and have
much smaller coefficients than the Hilbert polynomials.

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.

Extension of the Riemann $\xi$-Function's Logarithmic Derivative Positivity Region to Near the Critical Strip |
Extension of the Riemann $\xi$-Function's Logarithmic Derivative Positivity Region to Near the Critical Strip If $K$ is a number field with $n_k=[k:\mathbb{Q}]$, and $\xi_k$
the symmetrized
Dedekind zeta function of the field, the inequality
$$\Re\,{\frac{ \xi_k'(\sigma + {\rm i} t)}{\xi_k(\sigma
+ {\rm i} t)}} > \frac{ \xi_k'(\sigma)}{\xi_k(\sigma)}$$ for $t\neq 0$ is
shown
to be true for $\sigma\ge 1+ 8/n_k^\frac{1}{3}$ improving the result of
Lagarias where the constant in the inequality was 9. In the case $k=\mathbb{Q}$
the
inequality is extended to $\si\ge 1$ for all $t$ sufficiently large or small
and to the region $\si\ge 1+1/(\log t -5)$ for all $t\neq 0$. This
answers positively a question posed by Lagarias.

The Waring Problem with the Ramanujan $\tau$-Function, II Let $\tau(n)$ be the Ramanujan $\tau$-function. We prove that for
any integer $N$ with $|N|\ge 2$ the diophantine equation
$$\sum_{i=1}^{148000}\tau(n_i)=N$$ has a solution in positive
integers $n_1, n_2,\ldots, n_{148000}$ satisfying the condition
$$\max_{1\le i\le 148000}n_i\ll |N|^{2/11}e^{-c\log |N|/\log\log
|N|},$$ for some absolute constant $c>0.$

Huber's Theorem for Hyperbolic Orbisurfaces We show that for compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces, the
Laplace spectrum determines the length spectrum as well as the
number of singular points of a given order. The converse also holds, giving
a full generalization of Huber's theorem to the setting of
compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces.

On the Rational Points of the Curve $f(X,Y)^q = h(X)g(X,Y)$ Let $q = 2,3$ and $f(X,Y)$, $g(X,Y)$, $h(X)$ be polynomials with
integer coefficients. In this paper we deal with the curve
$f(X,Y)^q = h(X)g(X,Y)$, and we show that under some favourable
conditions it is possible to determine all of its rational points.

Carmichael Numbers with a Square Totient Let $\varphi$ denote the Euler function. In this paper, we show that
for all large $x$ there are more than $x^{0.33}$ Carmichael numbers
$n\le x$ with the property that $\varphi(n)$ is a perfect square. We
also obtain similar results for higher powers.

Small Zeros of Quadratic Forms Avoiding a Finite Number of Prescribed Hyperplanes We prove a new upper bound for the smallest zero $\mathbf{x}$
of a quadratic form over a number field with the additional
restriction that $\mathbf{x}$ does not lie in a finite number of $m$ prescribed
hyperplanes. Our bound is polynomial in the height of the quadratic
form, with an exponent depending only on the number of variables but
not on $m$.

Summation of Series over Bourget Functions In this paper we derive formulas for summation of series involving
J.~Bourget's generalization of Bessel functions of integer order, as
well as the analogous generalizations by H.~M.~Srivastava. These series are
expressed in terms of the Riemann $\z$ function and Dirichlet
functions $\eta$, $\la$, $\b$, and can be brought into closed form in
certain cases, which means that the infinite series are represented
by finite sums.

Expected Norms of Zero-One Polynomials Let $\cA_n = \big\{ a_0 + a_1 z + \cdots + a_{n-1}z^{n-1} : a_j \in \{0, 1 \
} \big\}$, whose elements are called \emf{zero-one polynomials}
and correspond naturally to the $2^n$ subsets of $[n] := \{ 0, 1,
\ldots, n-1 \}$. We also let $\cA_{n,m} = \{ \alf(z) \in \cA_n :
\alf(1) = m \}$, whose elements correspond to the ${n \choose m}$
subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$, and let $\cB_n = \cA_{n+1} \setminus
\cA_n$, whose elements are the zero-one polynomials of degree
exactly~$n$.
Many researchers have studied norms of polynomials with restricted
coefficients. Using $\norm{\alf}_p$ to denote the usual $L_p$ norm
of~$\alf$ on the unit circle, one easily sees that $\alf(z) = a_0 +
a_1 z + \cdots + a_N z^N \in \bR[z]$ satisfies $\norm{\alf}_2^2 = c_0$
and $\norm{\alf}_4^4 = c_0^2 + 2(c_1^2 + \cdots + c_N^2)$, where $c_k
:= \sum_{j=0}^{N-k} a_j a_{j+k}$ for $0 \le k \le N$.
If $\alf(z) \in \cA_{n,m}$, say $\alf(z) = z^{\beta_1} + \cdots +
z^{\beta_m}$ where $\beta_1 < \cdots < \beta_m$, then $c_k$ is the
number of times $k$ appears as a difference $\beta_i - \beta_j$. The
condition that $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$ satisfies $c_k \in \{0,1\}$ for $1
\le k \le n-1$ is thus equivalent to the condition that $\{ \beta_1,
\ldots, \beta_m \}$ is a \emf{Sidon set} (meaning all differences of
pairs of elements are distinct).
In this paper, we find the average of~$\|\alf\|_4^4$ over $\alf \in
\cA_n$, $\alf \in \cB_n$, and $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$. We further show
that our expression for the average of~$\|\alf\|_4^4$ over~$\cA_{n,m}$
yields a new proof of the known result: if $m = o(n^{1/4})$ and
$B(n,m)$ denotes the number of Sidon sets of size~$m$ in~$[n]$, then
almost all subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$ are Sidon, in the sense that
$\lim_{n \to \infty} B(n,m)/\binom{n}{m} = 1$.

Expansion of the Riemann $\Xi$ Function in Meixner--Pollaczek Polynomials In this article we study in detail the expansion of the Riemann
$\Xi$ function in Meixner--Pollaczek polynomials. We obtain explicit
formulas, recurrence relation and asymptotic expansion for the
coefficients and investigate the zeros of the partial sums.

Differences between Perfect Powers We apply the hypergeometric method of Thue and Siegel to prove
that if $a$ and $b$ are positive integers, then the inequality $
0 <| a^x - b^y | < \frac{1}{4} \, \max \{ a^{x/2}, b^{y/2} \}$
has at most a single solution in positive integers $x$ and $y$.
This essentially sharpens a classic result of LeVeque.
