  1. Mutually beneficial relationship of graphs and matrices
  2. by Brualdi, Richard A | 511.5 BRU | 031161
    Graphs and matrices enjoy a fascinating and mutually beneficial relationship. This interplay has benefited both graph theory and linear algebra. In one direction, knowledge about one of the graphs that can be associated with a matrix can be used to illuminate matrix properties and to get better information about the matrix. Examples include the use of digraphs to obtain strong results on diagonal dominance and eigenvalue inclusion regions and Read more...

  1. Higher order fourier analysis
  2. by Tao, Terence | 515.2433 TAO | 031103
    The classic and first result in this field is Roth’s 1953 theorem that a subset of the integers with positive density contains an infinity of three-term arithmetic progressions. The main applications given in this book are Roth’s theorem and the analogous result for the primes (the primes have density 0 in the integers, so Roth’s result does not apply directly). In 2004 Tao and Ben Green went further and proved that there are arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions in the primes Read more...
