**CURRICULUM VITAE**

**MARIAN VAJAITU**

Born: September 27, 1962, Colt, Romania. Address: Romanian Academy, P.O. Box. 1-764, R0-70700 Bucharest, Romania. Studies: I graduated from Department of Mathematics of Mathematics of the University of Bucharest in 1987. The title of Diploma Dissertation was "Riemann's zeta function and applications in Number Theory".The main lectures during this period are: two year a basic course in algebra, an year a basic course in real analysis, complex analysis (a semester), measure theory (a semester), two years a basic course in differential equations, an year of axiomatic and euclidean geometry, an year of differential geometry, an year of functional analysis, a supplementary year of algebra (number theory and groups theory), a course in Algebraic Geometry and one in Algebraic Topology.

I studied some classical works in number theory, such as:

- analytic number theory (from the books by Ingham, Eduards, Davenport, Titchmarsh, Halberstan, Baker, Bump). - algebraic number theory (from the books by Borevich and Shafarevich, H. Hasse and S. Lang). - valuations and the theory of algebraic functions (from the books by Schilling, Chevalley and Hasse). - class field theory (from the books by Hasse, Chevalley and Neurkirch).

I participated also at the seminar of Number Theory lead by Professor N. Popescu devoted to algebraic number theory, analytic number theory, class field theory and theory of algebraic functions.

Employment: 1987-1990 - Teacher at the High School at Petrosani, Romania (forced by the laws of former regime), since 1990 - Researcher at Institute of Mathematics, Bucharest, Romania. Fields of interest: Number theory with special interest in analytic number theory, algebraic numbers and functions, transcendental numbers, local class field theory, diofantine equations.

Scientific activity: Working in the field of Number Theory, I obtained some results. Part of them are collected in some papers, from which I mention:

- A result dealing with some arithmetical conjectures: The conjecture of Graham " for every chain of integers 0 < a_1 < ... < a_n" is solved for large numbers "n" by A. Zaharescu. Assuming the Riemann Hypothesis we proved that Graham's statement is true for any n\geq 10^70, in Journal of Number Theory, vol. 31, No. 1, january 1989.
- A problem of Selfridge which asks for the pairs (a, b) for which 2^a - 2^b | n^a - n^b for all n, INCREST preprint series in mathematics, No. 32/1989, by finding the 14 such pairs with a > b. I have to say that we have seen that this problem was already solved by two (Chinese) mathematicians a few years ago. On the other hand in this preprint it is proved also that, more generally, under some simple assumptions, given a_1,...,a_k\in\ZZ^*, the set of (k + 1)-uples (\beta,(\alpha_1,...,\alpha_k )) such that \Sum_{i=1}^{i=k}(\aplha_i)\times(\beta)^{a_i} divides \Sum_{i=1}^{i=k}(\aplha_i)\times n^{a_i} for all n, is finite.
- Doctoral thesis in 1994 "Estimations of the ideal generated by the values of a polynomial over a Dedekind ring".
- A finiteness theorem for a class of exponential congruences (to appear in Proc. A.M.S.).
- The ideal generated by the values of a polynomial over a Dedekind ring, Rev. Roumaine Math. Pures Appl.,42 (1997), 155-161.
- An inequality involving the degree of an algebraic set, Rev. Roumaine Math. Pures Appl., 43(1998), 451-455.
- Uniform distributions in local fields (to appear).

AWARDS: 2001 PRIZE ``GH. LAZAR'' OF THE ROMANIAN ACADEMY FOR MATHEMATICS.
