Integer points in a domain with smooth boundary

  • M. N. Huxley
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 102)


In the earlier paper [8] we discussed the method of estimating the area A of a domain Ω in the Euclidean plane by counting squares. A piece of transparent squared paper (with M squares per unit length, say) is placed over the domain. One counts either
  1. Q1:

    the number of squares whose centre lies within Ω or on its boundary C, or

  2. Q2:

    the number of vertices of the square lattice which lie within Ω or on C, or

  3. Q3:

    the number of squares which lie wholly within Ω plus half the number of squares cut by C.
