Norms Extremal with Respect to the Mahler Measure


In this paper, we introduce and study several norms which are constructed in order to satisfy an extremal property with respect to the Mahler measure. These norms are a natural generalization of the metric Mahler measure introduced by Dubickas and Smyth. We show that bounding these norms on a certain subspace implies Lehmer’s conjecture and in at least one… (More)
