For $-\pi\leq\beta_1<\beta_2\leq\pi$ denote by $\Phi_{\beta_1,\beta_2}(Q)$ the number of algebraic numbers on the unit circle with arguments in $[\beta_1,\beta_2]$ of degree $2m$ and with elliptic height at most $Q$. We show that \[ \Phi_{\beta_1,\beta_2}(Q)=Q^{m+1}\int\limits_{\beta_1}^{\beta_2}{p(t)}\,{\rm d}t+O\left(Q^m\,\log Q\right),\quad Q\to\infty, \] where $p(t)$ coincides up to a constant factor with the density of the roots of some random trigonometric polynomial. This density is… Expand

Distribution of complex algebraic numbers
For a region $\Omega \subset\mathbb{C}$ denote by $\Psi(Q;\Omega)$ the number of complex algebraic numbers in $\Omega$ of degree $\leq n$ and naive height $\leq Q$. We show that $$Expand
Joint distribution of conjugate algebraic numbers: A random polynomial approach
We count the algebraic numbers of fixed degree by their $\mathbf{w}$-weighted $l_p$-norm which generalizes the na\"ive height, the length, the Euclidean and the Bombieri norms. For non-negativeExpand
On the density function of the distribution of real algebraic numbers
In this paper we study the distribution of the real algebraic numbers. Given an interval $I$, a positive integer $n$ and $Q>1$, define the counting function $\Phi_n(Q;I)$ to be the number ofExpand

Let ℚ denote the field of rational numbers, Open image in new window an algebraic closure of ℚ, and H : Open image in new window the absolute, multiplicative, Weil height. For each positive integer dExpand
On the distribution of reducible polynomials
Let ℛn(t) denote the set of all reducible polynomials p(X) over ℤ with degree n ≥ 2 and height ≤ t. We determine the true order of magnitude of the cardinality |ℛn(t)| of the set ℛn(t) by showingExpand

This is a corrected printing of the second edition of Lang's well-known textbook. It covers all of the basic material of classical algebraic number theory, giving the student the background necessaryExpand
Lipschitz class, Narrow class, and counting lattice points
A well known principle says that the number of lattice points in a bounded subsets S of Euclidean space is about the ratio of the volume and the lattice determinant, subject to some relatively mildExpand
How many zeros of a random polynomial are real
We provide an elementary geometric derivation of the Kac integral formula for the expected number of real zeros of a random polynomial with independent standard normally distributed coefficients. WeExpand
We count algebraic numbers of fixed degree over a fixed algebraic number field. When the heights of the algebraic numbers are bounded above by a large parameter H, we obtain asymptotic estimates forExpand
