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.

Comparison between formulae for the counting functions of the heights t n of the Riemann zeros and of semiclassical quantum eigenvalues En suggests that the t n are eigenvalues of an (unknown) hermitean operator H, obtained by quantizing a classical dynamical system with hamiltonian H cl . Many features of H cl are provided by the analogy; for example, the "Riemann dynamics" should be chaotic and have periodic orbits whose periods are multiples of logarithms of prime numbers. Statistics of the t n have a similar structure to those of the semiclassical En ; in particular, they display randommatrix universality at short range, and nonuniversal behaviour over longer ranges. Very refined features of the statistics of the t n can be computed accurately from formulae with quantum analogues. The RiemannSiegel formula for the zeta function is described in detail. Its interpretation as a relation between long and short periodic orbits gives further insights into the quantum spectral fluctuations. We speculate that the Riemann dynamics is related to the trajectories generated by the classical hamiltonian H cl = XP.

From endomorphisms to automorphisms and back: dilations and full corners

Abstract. When S is a discrete subsemigroup of a discrete group G such that G = S −1 S, it is possible to extend circlevalued multipliers from S to G; to dilate (projective) isometric representations of S to (projective) unitary representations of G; and to dilate/extend actions of S by injective endomorphisms of a C*algebra to actions of G by automorphisms of a larger C*algebra. These dilations are unique provided they satisfy a minimality condition. The (twisted) semigroup crossed product corresponding to an action of S is isomorphic to a full corner in the (twisted) crossed product by the dilated action of G. This shows that crossed products by semigroup actions are Morita equivalent to crossed products by group actions, making powerful tools available to study their ideal structure and representation theory. The dilation of the system giving the Bost– Connes Hecke C*algebra from number theory is constructed explicitly as an application: it is the crossed product C0(Af) ⋊ Q ∗ +, corresponding to the multiplicative action of the positive rationals on the additive group Af of finite adeles.

We shortly review recent work interpreting the quotient ζ(s − 1)/ζ(s) of Riemann zeta functions as a dynamical zeta function. The corresponding interaction function (Fourier transform of the energy) has been shown to be ferromagnetic, i.e. positive. On the additive group we set inductively Gk: = (Z/2Z) k, with Z/2Z = ({0, 1}, +). h0: = 1, hk+1(σ, 0): = hk(σ) and hk+1(σ, 1): = hk(σ) + hk(1 − σ), (1) where σ = (σ1,..., σk) ∈ Gk and 1 − σ: = (1 − σ1,..., 1 − σk) is the inverted configuration. The sequences hk(σ) of integers, written in lexicographic order, coincide with the denominators of the modified Farey sequence. We now formally interpret σ ∈ Gk as a configuration of a spin chain with k spins and energy function Hk: = ln(hk). Thus we may interpret

Abstract It is an empirical observation that the Riemann zeta function can be well approximated in its critical strip using the NumberTheoretical Spin Chain. A proof of this would imply the Riemann Hypothesis. Here we relate that question to the one of spectral radii of a family of Markov chains. This in turn leads to the question whether certain graphs are Ramanujan. The general idea is to explain the pseudorandom features of certain numbertheoretical functions by considering them as observables of a spin chain of statistical mechanics. In an Appendix we relate the free energy of that chain to the Lewis Equation of modular theory. 1 Introduction The Euler
