In this paper, the strengthening of A. Dold’s theorem on the algebraic properties of Lefschetz numbers of fixed points of iterated maps is given. This result is obtained on the basis of detailed investigation of the arithmetical and analytical properties of the Lefschetz \(\zeta\)- function. For \(C^ 1\)-mapping \(f: M\to M\) of the smooth manifold \(M\) into itself, the lower estimates for the number of periodic orbits of \(f\), with period \(\leq k\), is derived. At the end of the paper, the bifurcations of the periodic points and periodic trajectories of a vector field, are discussed. To this aim the useful bifurcation function is defined. This important paper is well written and well organized.
