Geometry of numbers is the part of number theory which uses geometry for the study of algebraic numbers. Typically, a ring of algebraic integers is viewed as a lattice in. and the study of these lattices provides fundamental information on algebraic numbers. The geometry of numbers was initiated by Hermann Minkowski (1910).

which is symmetric with respect to the origin and which has volume greater than. 2 n {displaystyle 2^{n}}. contains a non-zero integer point. The theorem was proved by Hermann Minkowski in 1889 and became the foundation of the branch of number theory called the geometry of numbers. It can be extended from the integers to any lattice. L {displaystyle L}. and to any symmetric convex set with volume greater than. 2 n d ( L ) {displaystyle 2^{n},d(L)}.

Development of the Minkowski Geometry of Numbersconcerns itself primarily with geometric problems involving integers and with algebraic problems approachable through geometrical insights. In addition to demonstrating that geometric proofs and theorems in number theory are often simpler and more elegant than arithmetic proofs, the author illuminates many other algebraic and geometric topics. Starting with preliminary background and historical remarks, Volume 1 examines surfaces that are nowhere concave; the volume of bodies; linear forms; the arithmetical theory of a pair of lines; algebraic numbers; and the theory of continuous fractions. Some of Minkowski’s shorter papers are discussed as well. Topics featured in the subsequent volume include approximations of algebraic numbers and of real quantity through rational numbers, the arithmetic of the ellipsoid, and extreme standard bodies.
