Analytic number theory
 1. Analytic number theory is a branch of number theory that uses methods from mathematical analysis to solve problems about integers. It focuses on understanding the distribution of prime numbers and other important number theoretic functions using complex analysis, calculus, and other tools from analysis. Topics in analytic number theory include prime number theorem, Riemann zeta function, Dirichlet L-functions, modular forms, and many others. This field plays a crucial role in various areas of mathematics, such as cryptography, coding theory, and theoretical computer science.What is the Riemann zeta function typically denoted by?A) π(s)B) Γ(s)C) ζ(s)D) ϑ(s)2.
