Indeed, much of this progress is chronicled by Lubotzky and Segal within their book [42]. However, one area within this study has grown explosively in the last few years. This is the study of the zeta functions of groups with polynomial s- groupgrowth, inparticularfortorsion-free?nitely-generatednilpotentgroups. These zeta functions were introduced in [32], and other key papers in the - velopment of this subject include [10, 17], with [19, 23, 15] as well as [42] presenting surveys of the area. The purpose of this book is to bring into print signi?cant and as yet unpublished work from three areas of the theory of zeta functions of groups. First, there are now numerous calculations of zeta functions of groups by doctoralstudentsofthe?rstauthorwhichareyettobemadeintoprintedform outside their theses. These explicit calculations provide evidence in favour of conjectures, or indeed can form inspiration and evidence for new conjectures. We record these zeta functions in Chap.2. In particular, we document the functional equations frequently satis?ed by the local factors. Explaining this phenomenon is, according to the ?rst author and Segal [23], a€œone of the most intriguing open problems in the areaa€.The first Newton polygon therefore has a line corresponding to the polynomial A( U) of which we take a root I‰ as our first approximation. We then substitute U = I‰ + U1 and look at the Newton diagram of this. Hypothesis 1 implies that I‰ is not a anbsp;...
