The opening chapters offer sound explanations of the basics of elementary number theory and develop the fundamental properties of integers and congruences. Subsequent chapters present proofs of Fermat's and Wilson's theorems, introduce number theoretic functions, and explore the quadratic reciprocity theorem. Three independent sections follow, with examinations of the representation of numbers, diophantine equations, and primes. The text concludes with additional problems, three helpful appendixes, and answers to selected exercises and problems. Other books in this series. Introduction to Topology Bert Mendelson.

Freeman and Company, San Francisco, Dover Publications, Inc. Copyright , by Underwood Dudley. Accurately described because we look! Out the door in 24! Very Good. Used book in good condition.

Shipping : FREE. No International ShippingGood condition. Quick ship! But there are just SO many good textbooks on this ancient and critical subject,I don't think there's a unique answer to it. Furthermore, it assumes that you know concepts such as rings to begin with. So, it can be difficult trying to understand everything the authors are trying to say. Parts of the book also require concepts from analysis.

Also, the new edition has an index, at long last! That's been something long missing from an Introduction to the Theory of Numbers. It is easy for everyone to find this book, why is it so good?

Back in college, I heard someone mention a warning he had heard: "Be very wary of reading this book; it may turn you into a number theorist". The guy who said this to me did read the book, and turned into a number theorist.

I would love to read it. But I don't have a flair nor much of an interest in number theory Tom Dickens. Zev Chonoles. It's both accessible and up to date. But I'm not sure the book could be read as an introduction.

It was a bit of a shock to me the first time I opened it and the shock has never entirely worn off. If it had been around, I would not have felt the need to write a number theory book.

See amazon. It's hard going and mind-blowing. Barry Smith. And by someone else referring to my comment I don't understand why you come along three months later and post this. Apparently not. He totally and intentionally ignores the modern cohomological toolkit, which makes the statements and proofs of theorems nowhere near as clear as they could be. John M. It's not my favorite,but for sheer fun readability and scholarship that can inspire the raw beginner, Rosen's very hard to beat!
