Dr. Saban Alaca

Associate Professor, School of Mathematics and Statistics, Carleton University

Research Interests

My research interests are in number theory and its applications, which include:

  • Representations of integers by quadratic forms
  • Lambert series, Liouville's identities and Convolution sums.
  • Determining explicitly discriminants and integral bases of algebraic number fields, and the prime ideal decompositions of rational primes in algebraic number fields.
  • Evaluation of character sums such as Gauss sums, Jacobi sums and Brewer sums, and their applications to determine the group order of certain types of elliptic curves.
