In the last year TO slings have become an increasingly popular alternative to TA slings for the surgical treatment of SUI. Proposed advantages of the transobturator approach include improved… (More)

The real part of the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) is “usually positive” in the half-plane to the right of the critical line <(s) = 1/2. We make this statement precise and show how the density of… (More)

We present rigorous and sharp bounds for the terms and remainder in the Riemann-Siegel formula (for a general argument, not necessarily on the critical line). This allows for the computation of ζ(s)… (More)

Using the bisection as well as the Newton-Raphson method, we compute to high precision the Littlewood-Salem-Izumi constant frequently occurring in the theory of trigonometric sums.

Given a subset A of the set {1,. .. , v} 2 we say that (a 1 ,. .. , a v) exhibits pairwise coprimality over A if gcd(a i , a j) = 1 for all (i, j) ∈ A. For a given positive x and a given set A we… (More)

We consider the distribution of arg ζ (σ + it ) on fixed linesσ > 1 2, and in particular the density d(σ) = lim T→+∞ 1 2T |{t ∈ [−T,+T] : |argζ (σ + it )|> π/2}| , and the closely related density… (More)

The well-known relations between the size of +(G) and the expansion properties of a graph are a cause for the great interest in the explicit constructions of families of graphs [Gn, k], where k is… (More)
