Heights of Polynomials and Entropy in Algebraic Dynamics
Springer | 1999 | ISBN: 1852331259 | 212 pages | DjVu | 1,8 MB

 

The main theme of the book is the theory of heights as they appear in various guises. This includes a large body of results on Mahler’s measure of the height of a polynomial of which topic there is no book available. The genesis of the measure in a paper by Lehmer is looked at, which is extremely well-timed due to the revival of interest following the work of Boyd and Deninger on special values of Mahler’s measure.
