 A Riemann-Hurwitz Theorem for the Algebraic Euler Characteristic We prove an analogue of the Riemann-Hurwitz theorem for computing Euler characteristics of pullbacks of coherent sheaves through finite maps of smooth projective varieties in arbitrary dimensions, subject only to the condition that the irreducible components of the branch and ramification locus have simple normal crossings. Keywords:Riemann-Hurwitz, logarithmic-Chern class, Euler characteristicCategories:14F05, 14C17

 A module-theoretic characterization of algebraic hypersurfaces In this note we prove the following surprising characterization: if $X\subset {\mathbb A}^n$ is an (embedded, non-empty, proper) algebraic variety defined over a field $k$ of characteristic zero, then $X$ is a hypersurface if and only if the module $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ of logarithmic vector fields of $X$ is a reflexive ${\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$-module. As a consequence of this result, we derive that if $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ is a free ${\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$-module, which is shown to be equivalent to the freeness of the $t$th exterior power of $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ for some (in fact, any) $t\leq n$, then necessarily $X$ is a Saito free divisor.

 On a Conjecture of Livingston In an attempt to resolve a folklore conjecture of ErdÃ¶s 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 ErdÃ¶s'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 ErdÃ¶s's conjecture for prime $q$.

 Logarithms and the Topology of the Complement of a Hypersurface This paper is devoted to analysing the relation between the logarithm of a non-constant holomorphic polynomial $Q(z)$ and the topology of the complement of the hypersurface defined by $Q(z)=0$. Keywords:Logarithm, homology groups and periodsCategories:32Q55, 14F45
