r_{1},..., r_{s}: Z_{n≥0} → C be linearly recurrent sequences whose associated eigenvalues have arguments in πQ and let F(z) := Σ_{n} ≥ 0 f(n)zn, where f(n) ∈ {r1(n),..., rs(n)} for each n ≥ 0. We prove that if F(z) is bounded in a sector of its disk of convergence, then it is a rational function. This extends a very recent result of Tang and Wang, who gave the analogous result when the sequence f(n) takes on values of finitely many polynomials.]]>Wed 11 Apr 2018 16:49:35 AEST]]>The rational-transcendental dichotomy of Mahler functions

2)F(z^{4}) +z^{4}F(z^{16})=0. Specifically, we prove that the functions F(z), F(z^{4}), F′(z), and F′(z^{4}) are algebraically independent over ℂ(z). An application of a celebrated result of Ku. Nishioka then allows one to replace ℂ(z) by ℚ when evaluating these functions at a nonzero algebraic number α in the unit disc.]]>Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:22:41 AEST]]>An asymptotic approach in Mahler's method

k(z) := Σ^{∞}_{n=0} z^{k}^{n} (1 − z^{k}^{n})^{−1} is transcendental for all algebraic numbers z with |z| < 1. We give a similar result for F_{k}(z) := Σ^{∞}n=0 z^{k}^{n})(1 + z^{k}^{n})^{−1}. These results were known to Mahler, though our proofs of the function transcendence are new and elementary; no linear algebra or differential calculus is used.]]>Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:07:27 AEST]]>The maximal order of hyper-(b-ary)-expansions

F of a Mahler function F(z) and develop a quick test for the transcendence of F(z) over ℂ(z), which is determined by the value of the eigenvalue λ_{F}. While our first test is quick and applicable for a large class of functions, our second test, while a bit slower than our first, is universal; it depends on the rank of a certain Hankel matrix determined by the initial coefficients of F(z). We note that these are the first transcendence tests for Mahler functions of arbitrary degree. Several examples and applications are given.]]>Wed 04 Sep 2019 10:06:10 AEST]]>Proof of northshield’s conjecture concerning an analogue of stern’s sequence for ℤ[√2]

For example, we show that the generating function of the Thue–Morse sequence and any Mahler function (to the same base) which has a nonzero Mahler eigenvalue are algebraically independent over C(z). Finally, we discuss asymptotic bounds towards generic points on the unit circle.]]>Tue 10 May 2022 14:26:34 AEST]]>A sequential view of self-similar measures; or, what the ghosts of Mahler and Cantor can teach us about dimension

Building on work of Kubota and Yoshida, we show that for m > 2 and any j = 0,1,…,m – 1, the error term is not o(x^{α}) for any α < 1.]]>Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:44:37 AEDT]]>Transcendence of generating functions whose coefficients are multiplicative

f : ℕ → K be a multiplicative function taking values in a field K of characteristic 0, and write F(z) = Σ_{n≥1}f(n)z^{n} ∈ K[[z]] for its generating series. If F(z) is algebraic, then either there is a natural number k and a periodic multiplicative function χ(n) such that f(n) = n^{k}χ(n) for all n or f(n) is eventually zero. In particular, the generating series of a multiplicative function taking values in a field of characteristic zero is either transcendental or rational. For K = ℂ, we also prove that if the generating series of a multiplicative function is D-finite, then it must either be transcendental or rational.]]>Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:44:34 AEDT]]>Transcendental solutions of a class of minimal functional equations

In particular, we show that if f(z) satisfies a minimal functional equation of the above form with n ≥ 2, then f(z) is necessarily transcendental.

Further, define: [formula could not be replicated] and [formula could not be replicated], where Ψ : ℕ → ℝ>_{0} is a positive function such that Ψ(n) → 0 as n → ∞. In this paper, we show that each of the above sets obeys a Jarník-type dichotomy, that is, the generalized Hausdorff measure is either zero or full depending upon the convergence or divergence of a certain series. This work completes the metrical theory of these sets.]]>Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:14:52 AEDT]]>Growth degree classification for finitely generated semigroups of integer matrices
