### Stability of successive minima with respect to the metric on the space of lattices

Let $\mathcal L$ be the space of unimodular (covolume one) lattices in $\mathbb R^d$. The $i$-th successive minimum of $L\in \mathcal L$, denoted $\lambda_i(L)$ is the infimum of the radii of the ...

### Closest integer point to a sphere with radius R

I have a sphere in $\mathbb{R}^d$ with radius $R$ whose center is not necessarily the origin. I am interested in the closest integer lattice point to it. Indeed, it depends on the center location, but ...

### Determinants of minors occurring 'within' determinant of full matrix

$A= (a_{ij})$ is an $n\times n$ symmetric positive matrix. It induces a quadratic form $f(x):= x^tAx$ on $\mathbb{R}^n$. $D_m$ denotes the determinant of the top left $m\times m$ submatrix of $A$ (or ...

### Bounding the fractional parts of the $p^{\text{th}}$ roots of $n,n^2,...,n^{p-1}$

EDIT (August 9, 2021): I would like to ask a more general question. The original question that was fully answered is below the line. For a positive real number $x$, denote the fractional part $x-[x]$ ...

### Maximal sublattice index in Minkowski's Second Theorem

Let $B$ be a (small) convex compact set in $\mathbb{R}^n$, symmetric around the origin. Let $\Gamma$ be a lattice in $\mathbb{R}^n$ of dimension $n$ (I'm almost sure we can just take $\mathbb{Z}^n$, ...

### Are the class numbers of $\mathbb{Q}(\cos(2\pi / m))$ $O(m^n)$ for some fixed $n$?

Question: Are the class numbers of $\mathbb{Q}(\cos(\frac{2\pi}m))$ $O(m^n)$ for some fixed $n$? Evidences (e.g. a recent paper) showing that the question above is open are also OK. Remark: If such $n$...

### Lattice points in hypercubes

Let $(\Lambda_n)$ be a family of lattices, $\Lambda_n \subset \mathbb{Z}^n$, with $\det\Lambda_n \sim n$ as $n \to \infty$ (meaning $\lim_{n\to\infty} n^{-1} \det\Lambda_n = 1$). I am ...

### Finding a superbase in a lattice of Voronoi first kind

An $n$-dimensional lattice in $\mathbb R^n$ is said to be of Voronoi’s first kind if it there exists $n+1$ vectors $b_1,\cdots b_{n+1}$ (called the superbase) such that $\{b_1,\ldots,b_n \}$ is a ...

### Number of points in a lattice and an oblong box

I have a very simple question in geometry of numbers. (It is a slight modification of Counting points on the intersection of a box and a lattice .) There's a bound I can easily prove, and it's good ...

### Alternative reference to Davenport's Analytic Methods for geometry of numbers?

I was wondering if someone would be willing to suggest an alternative reference to Davenport's book Analytic Methods for Diophantine Equations and Diophantine Equations. I like the book but I would ... 305 views

### The number of quadratic forms attaining Hermite's constant

$\require{AMScd}$ I'm considering minimum values (at non-zero integer points) of real, positive-definite, quadratic forms of determinant $1$. These are functions $f:\mathbb{R}^n\to \mathbb{R}$ which ...

### On successive minima and basis of a lattice

Let $\Lambda$ be a lattice in $\mathbb{R}^n$. For $\bar{x} \in \mathbb{R}^n$, let $\| \bar{x} \| = max_{1 \leq i \leq n} \{ |x_i| \}$, i.e. the sup norm. Let $\lambda_1, ..., \lambda_n$ be a ...

### Counting number of points in a lattice with bounded sup norm

Let $\Lambda$ be a lattice in $\mathbb{R}^n$. For $\bar{x} \in \mathbb{R}^n$, let $\| \bar{x} \| = max_{1 \leq i \leq n} \{ |x_i| \}$, i.e. the sup norm. Let $\lambda_1, ..., \lambda_n$ be a ...

### Counting number of points in a lattice with bounded length

I am interested in counting number of lattices using the following theorem. The following is Theorem IV (page 412) in Chapter VIII of "An introduction to the geometry of numbers (second printing, ...
Consider all the integer points $\in [0,n]\times[0,n]$, I want to find the maximum subset $S$ of which such that there are at most $n^\varepsilon(0<\varepsilon<1)$ points in $S$ collinear. So, ...
