    Most of number theory has very few "practical" applications. That does not reduce its importance, and if anything it enhances its fascination. No one can predict when what seems to be a most obscure theorem may suddenly be called upon to play some vital and hitherto unsuspected role.” ― C. Stanley Ogilvy, Excursions in Number Theory. Number Theory.-WACLAW SIERPINSKI " Problems in Elementary Number Theory" presents problems and their solutions in five specific areas of this branch of mathe­ matics: divisibility of numbers, relatively prime numbers, arithmetic progressions, prime and composite numbers, and Diophantic equations. There is, in addition, a section of.

    "A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory" - Ireland and Rosen; A great book covering a lot of topics with very little required background (just a first course in abstract algebra) "A Course in Arithmetic" - Serre; In typical Serre fashion, in this Serre writes exactly what needs to be written, and no more - he proves quadratic. The other unusual aspect of the book is that, rather than giving a broad intro-duction to all the basic tools of Number Theory without going into much depth on any one, it focuses on a single topic, quadratic forms Q(x,y) =ax2 +bxy +cy2 with integer coefficients. Here there is a very rich theory that one can really immerse.

    In the spirit of The Book of the One Thousand and One Nights, the authors offer problems in number theory in a way that entices the reader to immediately attack the next r a novice or an experienced mathematician, anyone fascinated by numbers will find a great variety of problems—some simple, others more complex—that will provide them . Analytic Number Theory Lecture Notes by Andreas Strombergsson. This note covers the following topics: Primes in Arithmetic Progressions, Infinite products, Partial summation and Dirichlet series, Dirichlet characters, L(1, x) and class numbers, The distribution of the primes, The prime number theorem, The functional equation, The prime number theorem for .

Number theory (or arithmetic or higher arithmetic in older usage) is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers and integer-valued mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (–) said, "Mathematics is the queen of the sciences—and number theory is the queen of mathematics." Number theorists study prime.

Book Description. Quadratic Irrationals: An Introduction to Classical Number Theory gives a unified treatment of the classical theory of quadratic irrationals. Presenting the material in a modern and elementary algebraic setting, the author focuses on equivalence, continued fractions, quadratic characters, quadratic orders, binary quadratic forms, and class groups.

Bridging the gap between elementary number theory and the systematic study of advanced topics, A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory is a well-developed and accessible text that requires only a familiarity with basic abstract algebra.

Historical development is stressed throughout, along with wide-ranging coverage of significant results with comparatively.

The Classical Topics in Mathematics series, published by Higher Education Press, presents classic books that have withstood the test of time, all written by leading experts.

The first volumes of this series consist of an annotated version of Klein’s masterpiece Lectures on the icosahedron and the solution of equations of the fifth degree, and.

famous classical theorems and conjectures in number theory, such as Fermat’s Last Theorem and Goldbach’s Conjecture, and be aware of some of the tools used to investigate such problems. The recommended books are [1] H Davenport, The Higher Arithmetic, Cambridge University Press () [2]Allenby&Redfern.

An Invitation to Modern Number Theory. by Steven J. Miller and Ramin Takloo-Bighash. Review: Advanced undergrads interested in information on modern number theory will find it hard to put this book down. The authors have created an exposition that is innovative and keeps the readers mind focused on its current occupation.

Master’s thesis topics Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory This is the list of possible topics for a master’s thesis proposed by the sta members of the research group Algebraic Geometry and Number theory.

Every topic comes with a short description. In case you are interested in or have ques. The book provides a self-contained introduction to classical Number Theory. All the proofs of the individual theorems and the solutions of the exercises are being presented step Available Formats: eBook Hardcover Softcover.

Number theory, branch of mathematics concerned with properties of the positive integers (1, 2, 3, ). Sometimes called “higher arithmetic,” it is among the oldest and most natural of mathematical pursuits. Number theory has always fascinated amateurs as well as professional mathematicians. A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory "Many mathematicians of this generation have reached the frontiers of research without having a good sense of the history of their subject.

In number theory this historical ignorance is being alleviated by a number of fine recent books. This work stands among them as a unique and valuable Reviews: Number theory - Number theory - Euclid: By contrast, Euclid presented number theory without the flourishes.

He began Book VII of his Elements by defining a number as “a multitude composed of units.” The plural here excluded 1; for Euclid, 2 was the smallest “number.” He later defined a prime as a number “measured by a unit alone” (i.e., whose only proper divisor is 1).

Davenport. Elementary Number Theory by Gareth A. Jones. Level C: An introduction to the theory of numbers by Niven, Zuckerman, Montgomery. I would recommend Stewart and Tall's Algebraic Number Theory and Fermat's Last Theorem for an introduction with minimal prerequisites.

For example you don't need to know any module theory at all and all that is needed is a basic abstract algebra course (assuming it covers some ring and field theory). The main goal of the book is to acquaint the reader with various perspectives of the theory of automorphic forms. In addition to detailed and often nonstandard exposition of familiar topics of the theory, particular attention is paid to such subjects as theta-functions and representations by quadratic forms.

The book provides a self-contained introduction to classical Number Theory. All the proofs of the individual theorems and the solutions of the exercises are being presented step by step.

For example, here are some problems in number theory that remain unsolved. (Recall that a prime number is an integer greater than 1 whose only positive factors are 1 and the number itself.) Note that these problems are simple to state — just because a topic is accessibile does not mean that it is easy.

As far as coverage goes, it does not attempt a very comprehensive treatment of all the major topics in number theory. Thus, while multiplicative number theory is elegantly and insightfully treated, additive number theory is missing. Instead, the authors move from the foundations towards areas of current interest, such as elliptic s:.

While the book does not cover very much, its topics are explained beautifully in a way that illuminates all their details. Number Theory, An approach through history from Hammurapi to Legendre. André Weil; An historical study of number theory, written by one of the 20th century's greatest researchers in the field.Number theory and algebra play an increasingly significant role in computing and communications, as evidenced by the striking applications of these subjects to such fields as cryptography and coding theory.

My goal in writing this book was to provide an introduction to number theory and algebra, with an emphasis. This book has a clear and thorough exposition of the classical theory of algebraic numbers, and contains a large number of exercises as well as worked out numerical examples.

The introduction is a recapitulation of results about principal ideal domains, unique factorization domains and commutative fields.
