Meant to function a one-semester introductory path in quantity conception, this moment variation has been revised all through. particularly, the sphere of cryptography is highlighted. on the middle of the publication are the main quantity theoretic accomplishments of Euclid, Fermat, Gauss, Legendre, and Euler. moreover, a wealth of latest routines were integrated to totally illustrate the houses of numbers and ideas constructed within the textual content. The publication will function a stimulating creation for college students new to quantity idea, despite their heritage. First version Hb (1999) 0-521-58503-1 First variation Pb (1999) 0-521-58531-7

. . . if one desires to make development in arithmetic one should still research the masters now not the students. N. H. Abel Heeke was once one in all the masters, and in reality, the examine of Heeke L sequence and Heeke operators has completely embedded his identify within the cloth of quantity concept. it's a infrequent prevalence whilst a grasp writes a easy ebook, and Heeke's Lectures at the idea of Algebraic Numbers has turn into a vintage.
Kummer's paintings on cyclotomic fields lead the way for the improvement of algebraic quantity concept usually by means of Dedekind, Weber, Hensel, Hilbert, Takagi, Artin and others. besides the fact that, the luck of this common conception has tended to imprecise specific proof proved by way of Kummer approximately cyclotomic fields which lie deeper than the final concept.
This well-developed, available textual content info the ancient improvement of the topic all through. It additionally offers wide-ranging insurance of important effects with relatively user-friendly proofs, a few of them new. This moment version comprises new chapters that supply a whole facts of the Mordel-Weil theorem for elliptic curves over the rational numbers and an outline of modern development at the mathematics of elliptic curves.
Mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike have lengthy been interested by geometrical difficulties, fairly those who are intuitive within the feel of being effortless to kingdom, maybe by means of an easy diagram. every one part within the publication describes an issue or a bunch of similar difficulties. frequently the issues are able to generalization of edition in lots of instructions.
