Unformatted text preview: arXiv:math.NT/0112254 v1 22 Dec 2001 On Fourier and Zeta(s) Jean-Fran cois Burnol Laboratoire Dieudonn e Universit e de Nice Parc Valrose 06108 Nice cedex 02 France burnol@math.unice.fr December 13, 2001 Abstract We study some of the interactions between the Fourier Transform and the Riemann zeta function (and Dirichlet-Dedekind-Hecke-Tate L-functions). Contents 1 Introduction 2 2 On the Explicit Formulae and log | x | + log | y | 3 3 On adeles, ideles, scattering and causality 7 4 On Poisson, Tate, and co-Poisson 10 5 On the Nyman-Beurling criterion, the so-called Hilbert-P olya idea, and the B aez-Duarte, Balazard, Landreau and Saias theorem 18 6 On de Branges Sonine spaces, the spaces HP , and the vectors Z ,k 25 7 On the zeta function, the renormalization group, and duality 32 8 References 36 1 1 Introduction The zeta function ( s ) assumes in Riemanns paper quite a number of distinct identities: it appears as a Dirichlet series, as an Euler product, as an integral transform, as an Hadamard product 1 .. .We retain three such identities and use them as symbolic vertices for a triangle: n 1 n s Q (1- s ) Q p 1 1- p- s These formulae stand for various aspects of the zeta function (in the bottom left corner we omit the poles and Gamma factor for easier reading; also, as is known, some care is necessary to make the product converge, for example pairing with 1- is enough.) For the purposes of this manuscript, we may tentatively name these various aspects as follows: summations zeros primes A reading, even casual, of Riemanns paper reveals how much Fourier analysis lies at its heart, on a par with the theory of functions of the complex variable. Let us enhance appropriately the triangle: n 1 n s Fourier Fourier Q (1- s ) Fourier Q p 1 1- p- s Indeed, each of the three edges is an arena of interaction between the Fourier Transform, in various incarnations, and the Zeta function (and Dirichlet L-series, or even more general number theoretical zeta functions.) We specialize to a narrower triangle: n 1 n s summations Hilbert spaces and vectors ? Adeles and Ideles Q (1- s ) zeros Explicit Formulae Q p 1 1- p- s primes The big question mark serves as a remainder that we are missing the 2-cell (or 2-cells) which would presumably be there if the nature of the Riemann zeta function was really understood. 1 Riemann explains how log ( s ) may be written as an infinite sum involving the zeros. 2 It is to be expected that some of the spirit of the well-known ideas from the theory of function fields will at some point be incorporated into the strengthening of the 1-cells, but we shall not discuss this here. These ideas are also perhaps relevant to adding a 2-cell, or rather even a 3-cell, and we have only contributed to some basic aspects of the down-to-earth 1-cells....
