## Workshop on Combinatorics, Number Theory and Dynamical Systems

Aims : To demonstrate that uniqueness of factorization into irreducibles can fail in rings of algebraic integers, but that it can be replaced by the uniqueness of factorization into prime ideals. To introduce some geometric lattice-theoretic techniques and their applications to algebraic number theory.

So, for example, the n th roots of natural numbers are algebraic integers, and so is The study of these types of numbers leads to results about the ordinary integers, such as determining which of them can be expressed as the sum of two integral squares, proving that any natural number is a sum of four squares and, as a much more advanced application, which combines algebraic number theory with techniques from analysis, the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

For example, in the ring , it turns out that 6 has two distinct factorizations into irreducibles: and. Algebraic numbers, algebraic integers, algebraic number fields, integral bases, discriminants, norms and traces.

Dr Nina Snaith Reader Tel. Commonly referred to as the queen of mathematics, number theory is an ancient branch of pure mathematics that deals with properties of the integers.

## Number theory

Bringing together tools from analysis, geometry and algebra, the work that takes place in Bristol centres largely upon Diophantine equations and prime numbers. Despite its blue-sky nature, number theory research has fundamental application in modern life and the group collaborates closely with other disciplines, such as quantum physics and computational science.

As an example of this, the subject of algorithmic number theory is closely linked to cryptography, the basis of secure e-commerce and internet communications. The number theory group shares a seminar programme with the Heilbronn institute named after the famous number theorist Hans Heilbronn who was a professor at Bristol , and organises a number of advanced lecture courses throughout the year.
