Hilbert and Polya suggested that there might be a natural spectral interpretation of the zeroes of the Riemann Zeta function. While at the time there was little evidence for this, today the evidence is quite convincing. Firstly, there are the “function field” analogues, that is zeta functions of curves over finite fields and their generalizations. For these a spectral interpretation for their zeroes exists in terms of eigenvalues of Frobenius on cohomology. Secondly, the developments, both theoretical and numerical, on the local spacing distributions between the high zeroes of the zeta function and its generalizations give striking evidence for such a spectral connection. Moreover, the lowlying zeroes of various families of zeta functions follow laws for the eigenvalue distributions of members of the classical groups. In this paper we review these developments. In order to present the material fluently, we do not proceed in chronological order of discovery. Also, in concentrating entirely on the subject matter of the title, we are ignoring the standard body of important work that has been done on the zeta function and Lfunctions.

We provide a compendium of evaluation methods for the Riemann zeta function, presenting formulae ranging from historical attempts to recently found convergent series to curious oddities old and new. We concentrate primarily on practical computational issues, such issues depending on the domain of the argument, the desired speed of computation, and the incidence of what we call “value recycling”.

Mean values of Lfunctions and symmetry

Abstract. Recently Katz and Sarnak introduced the idea of a symmetry group attached to a family of L–functions, and they gave strong evidence that the symmetry group governs many properties of the distribution of zeros of the L–functions. We consider the mean–values of the L–functions and the mollified mean–square of the L–functions and find evidence that these are also governed by the symmetry group. We use recent work of Keating and Snaith to give a complete description of these mean values. We find a connection to the Barnes–Vignéras Γ2–function and to a family of self–similar functions. 1.

Abstract. We present theoretical and numerical evidence for a random matrix theoretical approach to a conjecture about vanishings of quadratic twists of certain Lfunctions. In this paper we 1 present some evidence that methods from random matrix theory can give insight into the frequency of vanishing for quadratic twists of modular Lfunctions. The central question is the following: given a holomorphic newform f with integral coefficients and associated Lfunction Lf(s), for how many fundamental discriminants d with d  ≤ x, does Lf(s, χd), the Lfunction twisted by the real, primitive, Dirichlet character associated with the discriminant d, vanish at the center of the critical strip to order at least 2? This question is of particular interest in the case that the Lfunction is associated with an elliptic curve, in light of the conjecture of Birch and SwinnertonDyer. This case corresponds to weight k = 2. We will focus on this case for most of the paper, though we do make some remarks about higher weights (see (26) and below). Suppose that E/Q is an elliptic curve with associated Lfunction (1) LE(s) = for ℜs> 1. Then, as a consequence of the TaniyamaShimura conjecture, recently solved by Wiles, Taylor, ([W], [TW]), and Breuil, Conrad, and Diamond, LE is entire and satisfies a functional equation n=1 a ∗ n n s
Autocorrelation of random matrix polynomials

We calculate the autocorrelation functions (or shifted moments) of the characteristic polynomials of matrices drawn uniformly with respect to Haar measure from the groups U(N), O(2N) and USp(2N). In each case the result can be expressed in three equivalent forms: as a determinant sum (and hence in terms of symmetric polynomials), as a combinatorial sum, and as a multiple contour integral. These formulae are analogous to those previously obtained for the Gaussian ensembles of Random Matrix Theory, but in this case are identities for any size of matrix, rather than largematrix asymptotic approximations. They also mirror exactly the autocorrelation formulae conjectured to hold for Lfunctions in a companion paper. This then provides further evidence in support of the connection between Random Matrix Theory and the theory of Lfunctions.

We give a newheuristic for all of the main terms in the integral moments of various families of primitive Lfunctions. The results agree with previous conjectures for the leading order terms. Our conjectures also have an almost identical form to exact expressions for the corresponding moments of the characteristic polynomials of either unitary, orthogonal, or symplectic matrices, where the moments are de ned by the appropriate group averages. This lends support to the idea that arithmetical Lfunctions have a spectral interpretation, and that their value distributions can be modeled using Random Matrix Theory. Numerical examples show good agreement with our conjectures.

There has recently been interest in relating properties of matrices drawn at random from the classical compact groups to statistical characteristics of numbertheoretical Lfunctions. One example is the relationship conjectured to hold between the value distributions of the characteristic polynomials of such matrices and value distributions within families of Lfunctions. These connections are here extended to nonclassical groups. We focus on an explicit example: the exceptional Lie group G2. The value distributions for characteristic polynomials associated with the 7 and 14dimensional representations of G2, defined with respect to the uniform invariant (Haar) measure, are calculated using two of the Macdonald constant term identities. A one parameter family of Lfunctions over a finite field is described whose value distribution in the limit as the size of the finite field grows is related to that of the characteristic polynomials associated with the 7dimensional representation of G2. The random matrix calculations extend to all exceptional Lie groups.
