The Diverse Faces of Arithmetic- Notes on Sequences

View as: view as PDF

At The Diverse Faces of Arithmetic there were a pair of (early morning!) overview lectures for postgraduates. I’ve finally got around to typesetting my notes from the first, Tom Ward’s session on recurrence sequences, available as pdf via the above link. The topics included are divisibilty sequences and primitive divisors; linear recurrences; elliptic divisibility sequences; integrability/ Laurent phenomena; growth rates and Lehmer’s problem.
