  5. m-nariniai skaidiniai, (1999). Course-work. This paper, written in Lithuanian, contains new proof of a known result, some new results, one of which was proved by other authors 16 years later.
  6. Recursive construction of a series converging to the eigenvalues of the Gauss-Kuzmin-Wirsing operator, (2010). This paper is not for publication since it was superseded by this paper.
  7. Dirichlet series associated with Thue-Morse sequence; Vilnius University, Department of Mathematics, preprint (2001). This work is badly written, maybe some results are incorrect; but it contains the explicit construction of the function F(x) which satisfies F'(x)=4F(2x). This very function was independently rediscovered by Japanese mathematician in this paper few years later. Some day in the near future I will rewrite this preprint, since certain results are really interesting.
  8. Exact lower bound for the house of algebraic integer with abelian Galois group (2003). The result of the note is a rediscovery of the old result of A. Schinzel.
