The following faculty members are actively engaged in this field of mathematics:
research interests are uniform distribution, continued fractions and
Diophantine approximation. He also takes an
active interest in connections of number theory to symbolic logic,
particularly in Hilbert's 10th Problem.

- Ekkehard Krätzel is honorary professor at the department. He spent most of his professional career in Jena (Germany) and is probably best known for his prolific research into lattice point problems.
Johannes Schoißengeier's research is centered around
uniform distribution with emphasis on the discrepancies of special
sequences. He feels at home in various parts of number theory and
has taught elementary, analytic and algebraic number theory as well as

Leonhard Summerer received his Ph.D. in 1997 for
a thesis in Diophantine approximation. He continues his research
in this field, has twice spent a term at the
University of Colorado at Boulder
and has been an assistant at the

The department's mailing address is:
Department of Mathematics, University of Vienna, Nordbergstraße 15, A-1090 Wien, Austria
There is a further number theory group led by Werner Georg Nowak which is located at the University of Agricultural Sciences at Vienna. Joint activities and a stimulating exchange of ideas take place regularly.
In July 1996 a Conference on Analytic and Elementary Number Theory took place in Vienna to honour Professor Edmund Hlawka on the occasion of his eightieth birthday. The proceedings of this meeting are available.
