RISC Report , 2015. [pdf]

Other than my own working area, I am also interested in number theory (and its extensions: algorithmic/algebraic/analytic number theories), cryptography, real algebraic geometry (my PhD thesis), commutative algebra in general (worked a bit with Galois theory on commutative rings), graph theory, computational geometry, fractal sets (looked a bit on Julia sets from esoteric fields), elliptic curves, Lie algebra and mathematical chess problems (see Noam Elkies on enumerative chess problems).

abstract = {Recently it has been shown that a multivariate (homogeneous) polynomialwith rational coefficients that can be written as a sum of squares offorms with real coefficients, is not necessarily a sum of squares offorms with rational coefficients. Essentially, only one constructionfor such forms is known, namely taking the $K/\Q$-norm of a sufficientlygeneral form with coefficients in a number field $K$. Whether thisconstruction yields a form with the desired properties depends onGalois-theoretic properties of $K$ that are not yet well understood.We construct new families of examples, and we shed new light on somewell-known open questions.},

title = {{Odd Collatz Sequence and Binary Representations}},

language = {english},

abstract = {Here we investigate the odd numbers in Collatz sequences (sequences arising from the $3n+1$ problem). We are especially interested in methods in binary number representations of the numbers in the sequence. In the first section, we show some results for odd Collatz sequences using mostly binary arithmetics. We see how some results become more obvious in binary arithmetic than in usual method of computing the Collatz sequence. In the second section of this paper we deal with some known results and show how we can use binary representation and OCS from the first section to prove some known results. We give a generalization of a result by Andaloro \cite{And2} and show a generalized sufficient condition for the Collatz conjecture to be true: If for a fixed natural number $n$ the Collatz conjecture holds for numbers congruent to $1$ modulo $2^n$ then the Collatz conjecture is true.},
