Zeta functions of groups and rings

  title={Zeta functions of groups and rings},
  author={Marcus du Sautoy and Fritz Grunewald},
We report on progress and problems concerning the analytical behaviour of the zeta functions of groups and rings. We also describe how these generating functions are special cases of adelic cone integrals for which our results hold. 
Zeta functions of groups and rings - recent developments
I survey some recent developments in the theory of zeta functions associated to infinite groups and rings, specifically zeta functions enumerating subgroups and subrings of finite index or
A Framework for Computing Zeta Functions of Groups, Algebras, and Modules
We give an overview of the author’s recent work on methods for explicitly computing various types of zeta functions associated with algebraic counting problems. Among the types of zeta functions that
Essential singularities of Euler products
We classify singularities of Dirichlet series having Euler products which are rational functions for p and p^{-s} for p a prime number and give examples of natural boundaries from zeta functions of
Analytic Continuation of some zeta functions
This is an expository paper on the meromorphic continuation of zeta functions with Euler products (for example zeta functions of groups and height zeta functions) or without (for example the Goldbach

A remark on the degree of polynomial subgroup growth of nilpotent groups
We show that if two finitely generated nilpotent groups have isomorphic C-Mal’cev completions, then their subgroup (resp. normal) zeta functions have the same abscissa of convergence. A similar
Computing local zeta functions of groups, algebras, and modules
We develop a practical method for computing local zeta functions of groups, algebras, and modules in fortunate cases. Using our method, we obtain a complete classification of generic local
Representation growth and representation zeta functions of groups
We give a short introduction to the subject of representation growth and representation zeta functions of groups, omitting all proofs. Our focus is on results which are relevant to the study of
Reduced zeta functions of Lie algebras
Abstract We define reduced zeta functions of Lie algebras, which can be derived, via the Euler characteristic, from motivic zeta functions counting subalgebras and ideals. We show that reduced zeta
Natural boundaries for Euler products of Igusa zeta functions of elliptic curves
We study the analytic behaviour of adelic versions of Igusa integrals given by integer polynomials defining elliptic curves. By applying results on the meromorphic continuation of symmetric power


Zeta functions of classical groups and their friendly ghosts
On the degree of polynomial subgroup growth in class 2 nilpotent groups
We use the theory of zeta functions of groups to establish a lower limit for the degree of polynomial normal subgroup growth in class two nilpotent groups.
The Normal Zeta Function of the Free Class Two Nilpotent Group on Four Generators
We calculate explicitly the normal zeta function of the free group of class two on four generators, denoted by F2,4. This has Hirsch length ten.
Normal subgroup growth in free class-2-nilpotent groups
Abstract.Let F2,d denote the free class-2-nilpotent group on d generators. We compute the normal zeta functions prove that they satisfy local functional equations and determine their abscissae of
Zeta Functions of Groups
A zeta function is an analytic function whose analytic properties somehow encapsulate a tremendous amount of arithmetic information. These functions are an uncannily powerful tool in number theory;
Finitely generated groups of polynomial subgroup growth
We determine the structure of finitely generated residually finite groups in which the number of subgroups of each finite indexn is bounded by a fixed power ofn.
Zeta functions related to the group SL2(ℤp)
An explicit formula is given for the number of subgroups of indexpn in the principle congruence subgroups of SL2(ℤp) (for odd primesp), and for the zeta function associated with the group.
Zeta Functions of Crystallographic Groups and Analytic Continuation
We prove that the zeta function and normal zeta function of a virtually abelian group have meromorphic continuation to the whole complex plane. We do this by relating the functions to classical
Functional equations for local normal zeta functions of nilpotent groups
Abstract.We give explicit formulae for the local normal zeta functions of torsion-free, class-2-nilpotent groups, subject to conditions on the associated Pfaffian hypersurface which are generically
