Reihentext + Geometry of Numbers From the studies: "The paintings is punctiliously written. it truly is good encouraged, and fascinating to learn, no matter if it's not constantly easy... ancient fabric is included... the writer has written a good account of an attractive subject." (Mathematical Gazette) "A well-written, very thorough account ... one of the themes are lattices, aid, Minkowski's Theorem, distance services, packings, and automorphs; a few functions to quantity thought; very good bibliographical references." (The American Mathematical Monthly)

3. Lattices under linear transformation. It is convenient here to consider briefly the effect of a non-singular affine transformation x-+X =(lX of n-dimensional space into itself. Let the transformation X =(lX be given by (1~i~n), (1 ) Xi = L (XiiXj where l:;;;i:;;;n X=(X1 ,···,X,,), x=(x1 ,···,xn) are corresponding points in the transformation and such that det((l) =det((Xii) =}O. /\ the set of points (lX, xEI\. ••. , b" is a basis for /\, then the general point b = U 1 b 1 + ... , ...

If we know (or may assume) that /(u) does not assume arbitrarily small values for integral u 0 then it is possible to salvage something of the reduction procedure. Let e> 0 be chosen arbitrarily small. By hypothesis, Ml = inf I/(u)l > o. * ",,"0 integral Hence we may find an integral e~ * 0 such that Without loss of generality e~ is not of the form ka where a is integral and k> 1 is a rational integer.

We leave to the reader an examination of when equality can occur. A rather tedious investigation of cases shows that it can occur only when 111 = 122 = 133 and either 2/23=2/31=2/12= ±1, or one of 2/23,2/31,2112 vanishes and the remaining two are equal to ± 1.
