### Upper bound for maximum modulus of polynomial on unit circle in term of the distribution of its roots

Let $P(z) = \prod_{i = 1}^n (z - z_i) \in \mathbb{C}[z]$ be a monic polynomial having all roots $z_1, \dots, z_n$ on the unit circle $\mathbb{T} := \{z \in \mathbb{C} : |z| = 1\}$. What is known about ...

### Uniform distribution of log(log((n!)!)) mod 1

Can it be shown that the sequence $\log(\log((n!)!))$ is uniformly distributed mod 1? I believe it should be, but I'm not certain if Stirling's approximation repeated twice combined with the ...

### Conjecture: The sequence {$π(2n+1)!$} is equidistributed in the interval (0,1)

Let $n\in\mathbb{N}$. From the book "Uniform Distribution of Sequences" (available here) by L. Kuipers and H. Niederreiter, (from pg. 8) I found that for any irrational $\theta$, the ...

### Writing the Lebesgue–Stieltjes integral as a sum of equidistributed Dirac delta measures

Problem set up: Let $f: [0, 1] \to \mathbb R$ be an absolutely continuous function (thus a fortiori of bounded variation) such that its total variation on any open interval $(a, b)$ is $b-a$. We say a ...

### Equidistributed sequence wrt exponential/Gaussian measure

For an arbitrary probability space $(X,\mu)$, a sequence $(x_n)$ in $X$ is said to be equidistributed with respect to $\mu$ if the measures $\frac 1 n \sum_{1\le k\le n} \delta_{x_k}$ converges weakly ...

### Sequences similar to $\{n\alpha\}$ that are both equidistributed and truly random-like

See update at the bottom. Here the brackets represent the fractional part, and $\alpha \in [0, 1]$ is a positive irrational number. It is well known that the sequences $\{n\alpha\}$, $\{n^2\alpha\}$ ...

### Equidistribution of CM points in the principal genus

It is well known that as the negative discriminant $-D$ goes to infinity, the number of quadratic forms of discriminant $-D$ belonging to the principal genus also goes to infinity. Can we say ...

### Explicit numbers with square root cancellation in Weyl's exponential sum

I'm interested in examples of real numbers $\alpha$ where we have $$\left| \sum_{n=1}^N \mathrm e(\alpha n) \right| \ll N^{1/2}$$ or perhaps with the weaker estimate with the right side replaced ...

### Distribution of square roots mod 1

I was wondering about the distribution of $\sqrt{p}$ mod $1$ this morning, as one does while brushing one's teeth. I remembered the paper of Elkies and McMullen (Duke Math. J. 123 (2004), no. 1, 95–...

### A distribution related to Fermat's two squares theorem

Fermat's two squares theorem tell us that every prime number $p \equiv 1 \pmod 4$ can be written in a unique way as $p = a^2 + b^2$ for two positive integers $a < b$. In particular, we can ...
Duke, and Linnik before him under a restrictive condition, proved that the set of closed geodesics of a given length $L$ is equidistributed on the modular surface as $L \to \infty$. This is a theorem ...
