In accordance with the ideas of Prof. Lutz Lucht, the initiator of this biannual meeting, we hope to bring together researchers from various branches of number theory and provide a pleasant basis for stimulating mathematical exchange, in particular for younger mathematicians from different countries. As usual, there will be the opportunity for longer lectures, shorter talks and discussions.

Invited speakers are:

  • Valentin Blomer (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen) : Counting in hyperbolic spikes
  • Jörg Brüdern (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen) : Anisotropic Diagonal Forms
  • Karl Dilcher (Dalhousie University) : Irreducibility and factorization results for some classes of polynomials
  • Christian Elsholtz (Technische Universität Graz) : The additive decomposability of sets
  • Karl-Heinz Indlekofer (Universität Paderborn) : Arithmetische Funktionen - ein Schwerpunktthema im wissenschaftlichen Werk von Wolfgang  Schwarz
  • Aleksandar Ivić (Univerzitet u Beogradu) : On some selected works of  Wolfgang Schwarz
  • Simon Kristensen (Aarhus Universitet) : Fourier theoretic methods in metric Diophantine approximation
  • Lutz Lucht (Technische Universität Clausthal) : Remembering Wolfgang Schwarz, his life and work
  • Helmut Maier (Universität Ulm) : Trigonometric series with arithmetic coefficients
  • Pieter Moree (Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik) : Cyclotomic coefficients yesterday and tomorrow
  • Nicola Oswald (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg) : Was the Hildesheim mathematician Adolf Hurwitz an entertainer? - Some examples of recreational mathematics in his diaries
  • Samuel Patterson (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen) : Selberg sums - a new viewpoint
  • Janos Pintz (Hungarian Academy of Sciences) : On some conjectures of Erdös about gaps between consecutive primes
  • Andrzej Schinzel (Polska Akademia Nauk) : On the congruence f(x)+g(y)+c=0(mod xy)
  • Jan-Christoph Schlage-Puchta (Universität Rostock) : The non-existence of universal elliptic Carmichael numbers
  • Jörn Steuding (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg) : On Liouville Numbers - Yet Another Application of Functional Analysis in Number Theory
  • Robert F. Tichy (Technische Universität Graz) : Dynamical Systems
  • Robert Tijdeman (Universiteit Leiden) : The abc-conjecture and some generalizations

Wednesday, July 30th, will be dedicated to Wolfgang Schwarz. Friends and colleagues will honour his life and scientific work in a series of talks.

Please note that Prof. Jörn Steuding will host a summer school at the University of Würzburg in the week before the ELAZ (for more information take a look at this homepage).
