We study the localization problem appearing in Kronecker's diophantine theorem. We introduce a probabilistic approach allowing to extend for general $\Q$-linearly independent sequences a result of T\'uran concerning the sequence $ (\log p_\ell)$, $p_\ell$ being the $\ell$-th prime.
We give two examples of periodic Gaussian processes, having entropy numbers of exactly same order but radically different small deviations. Our construction is based on classical Knopp's result yielding of existence of continuous nowhere differentiable functions, and more precisely on Loud's functions. We also obtain a general lower bound for small deviations using the majorizing measure method. We show on examples that our bound is sharp. We also apply it to Gaussian independent sequences an...
In the first part of this expository paper, we present and discuss the interplay of Dirichlet polynomials in some classical problems of number theory, notably the Lindel\"of Hypothesis. We review some typical properties of their means and continue with some investigations concerning their supremum properties. Their random counterpart is considered in the last part of the paper, where a analysis of their supremum properties, based on methods of stochastic processes, is developed.
Lorsqu’on compare les œuvres remarquables d’A. N. Whitehead et de W. James, on est nécessairement frappé par la mysterium conjunctionis qui s’opère entre un empirisme radical imaginatif et un empirisme radical expérimental. Mais peut-on pour autant les mettre en dialogue non seulement historiquement mais aussi spéculativement ? Et, dans l’affirmative, à quel prix ? Notre étude se propose d’examiner cette question à la fois a priori et a posteriori. Il s’agira, d’une part, de dégager les cond...
A new zerofree region of the Riemann Zeta-function $\zeta$ is identified by using Tur\'an's localization criterion linking zeros of $\zeta$ with uniform local suprema of sets of Dirichlet polynomials expanded over the primes. The proof is based on a randomization argument. An estimate for local extrema for some finite families of shifted Dirichlet polynomials, % associated to linearly independent sequences of reals is established by preliminary considering their local increment properties, by...
We prove a new sharp correlation inequality for sums of i.i.d. square integrable lattice distributed random variables. We also apply it to establish an almost sure local limit theorem for iid square integrable random variables taking values in an arbitrary lattice. This extends a recent similar result jointly obtained with Antonini-Giuliano, under a slightly stronger absolute moment assumption (of order $2+u$ with $u>0$). The approach used to treat the case $u>0$ breaks down when $u=0$. MacDo...
