### Average rank of elliptic curves over function fields

De Jong showed in 2002 if the finite field $\mathbb{F}_q$ has characteristic not equal to 3, then the limsup of the average of 3-Selmer rank is bounded above, where the average is taken over the ...

### The number of different lattice triangles

Two convex lattice polygons are equivalent if there is a lattice-preserving affine transformation mapping one of them to the other. Equivalent polygons have the same area. Let $H(A)$ denote the number ...

### Regular lattice polygons

Suppose I want to construct an $N$-gon in the plane whose vertices are integer lattice points, and which is close to a regular $N$-gon (which means, the ratio of longest to the shortest side is within ...

### Are most curves over Q pointless?

Fresh out of the arXiv press is the remarkable result of Manjul Bhargava saying that most hyperelliptic curves over $\mathbf{Q}$ have no rational points. Don Zagier suggests the paraphrase : Most ...

### Sums of inverse determinants over matrices

Let $A \in M_n(\mathbb Z)$ and $\|A\| = \max |a_{ij}|$.
Denote $$ S(r) = \sum_{\substack{\|A\| \leq r \\\ \det{A} \neq 0}} \dfrac{1}{|\det{A}|} $$
- the sum over all matrices $A \in M_n(\mathbb Z)$ ...

### Minimal number of colours for colouring Voronoi-cells of a $d-$dimensional lattice

There are arbitrarily large finite sets of points in $\mathbb R^3$ whose Voronoi-domains
intersect all pairwise in $2-$dimensional polytopes. This shows that one needs infinitely many
colours in order ...

### (Approximately) bijective proof of $\zeta(2)=\pi^2/6$ ?

Given $A,B\in {\Bbb Z}^2$, write $A \leftrightarrows B$ if the
interior of the line segment AB misses
${\Bbb Z}^2$.
For $r>0$, define
$S_r:=\{ \{A, B\} | A,B\in {\Bbb Z}^2,||A||<r,||B||<r, ...

### Verifying my other example in the Geometry of Numbers and Quadratic Forms

In answer to Pete L. Clark's question Must a ring which admits a Euclidean quadratic form be Euclidean? on Euclidean quadratic forms, I also gave an example in six or fewer variables, repeated below. ...
