Multiplicities of Linear Recurrence Sequences
MetadataShow full item record
In this report we give an overview of some of the major results concerning the multiplicities of linear recurrence sequences. We first investigate binary recurrence sequences where we exhibit a result due to Beukers and a result due to Brindza, Pintér and Schmidt. We then investigate ternary recurrences and exhibit a result due to Beukers building on work of Beukers and Tijdeman. The last two chapters deal with a very important result due to Schmidt in which we bound the zero-multiplicity of a linear recurrence sequence of order <em>t</em> by a function involving <em>t</em> alone. Moreover we improve on Schmidt's bound by making some minor changes to his argument.
