This volume is an outgrowth of the LMS Durham Symposium on L-functions, held in July 1989.
This volume is an outgrowth of the LMS Durham Symposium on L-functions, held in July 1989. The symposium consisted of several short courses, aimed at presenting rigorous but non-technical expositions of the latest research areas, and a number of individual lectures on specific topics. The contributors are all outstanding figures in the area of algebraic number theory and this volume will be of lasting value to students and researchers working in the area.
