Introduction. The vanishing orders of L-functions at the centers of their functional equations are interesting objects to study as one sees, for example, from the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture on the Hasse-Weil L-functions associated with elliptic curves over number fields. In this paper we study the central zeros of the following types of L-functions: (i) the derivatives of the Mellin transforms...
We prove a generalisation of the entropy formula for certain algebraic $ℤ^d$-actions given in  and . This formula expresses the entropy as the logarithm of the Mahler measure of a Laurent polynomial in d variables with integral coefficients. We replace the rational integers by the integers in a number field and examine the entropy of the corresponding dynamical system.
This paper is devoted to some variants of the Hilbert specialization property. For example, the RG-hilbertian property (for a field K), which arose in connection with the Inverse Galois Problem, requires that the specialization property holds solely for extensions of K(T) that are Galois and regular over K. We show that fields inductively obtained from a real hilbertian field by adjoining real pth...
A classic theorem of Pólya shows that the function is the "smallest" integral-valued entire transcendental function. A variant due to Gel'fond applies to entire functions taking integral values on a geometric progression of integers, and Bézivin has given a generalization of both results. We give a sharp formulation of Bézivin's result together with a further generalization.
