Abstract:This thesis is divided into two major topics. In the first, we study the topic of distribution of sequences modulo one. In particular, we look at the spacing distributions between members of rational valued sequences modulo one. We come up with examples of many such sequences which behave as randomly chosen numbers from the unit interval. These include examples from the class of exponentially as well as sub-exponentially growing sequences. In the second part, we examine distribution questions for certain geometrical objects, for example, Farey-Ford and generalized Farey-Ford polygons and Farey-Ford parabolas associated to visible lattice points. As the names suggest, these objects are constructed based on the relation between visible points/Farey fractions and their geometrical interpretation in the form of Ford circles. We study the distribution of moments of various geometrical parameters associated to these objects by giving asymptotic formulas employing tools from analytic number theory.
