Zeros of random polynomials
Given a polynomial , where the coefficients are random, what can we say about the distribution of the roots (on )? Of course, it would depend on what “random” means. Here, “random” means that the sequence is an i.i.d. sequence … Continue reading

A dynamical proof of Fermat’s little theorem
If you have studied number theory (even just a little bit), you should know the Fermat’s little theorem: for any positive , and for any prime number , we have . Here I will give a proof by using a … Continue reading

Poincaré recurrence theorem and its friends
The Poincaré recurrence theorem states that a dynamical system (under suitable conditions) will eventually return to a condition that is very close to the original condition. Slightly more formally, for a compact set in , if is a volume preserving … Continue reading

Mathematics behind JPEG
Many of you should have this experience: when you save a picture with many words in Paint(小畫家) as .jpg file, some ugly artifacts appear. Then you may think why is such a low quality image format so common? At the … Continue reading

A dynamical proof of some Diophantine approximations
Diophantine approximations is a field in number theory which asks how good a real number can be approximated by some rational number. Quite a number of classical results are proved by using combinatorics, which is not friendly to people who … Continue reading
