By Sherman K. Stein
Starting with a survey of questions about weight, the textual content discusses the primes, the elemental theorem of mathematics, rationals and irrationals, tiling, tiling and electrical energy, chance, countless units, and lots of different issues. every one topic illustrates an important proposal and lends itself simply to experiments and difficulties. valuable appendices provide an summary of the elemental principles of mathematics, the rudiments of algebra, feedback on educating arithmetic, and masses extra, together with solutions and reviews for chosen exercises.

. . . if one desires to make development in arithmetic one should still learn the masters no longer the students. N. H. Abel Heeke used to be one in every of the masters, and actually, the research of Heeke L sequence and Heeke operators has completely embedded his identify within the cloth of quantity thought. it's a infrequent incidence whilst a grasp writes a easy publication, and Heeke's Lectures at the concept of Algebraic Numbers has turn into a vintage.
Kummer's paintings on cyclotomic fields cleared the path for the advance of algebraic quantity thought often via Dedekind, Weber, Hensel, Hilbert, Takagi, Artin and others. in spite of the fact that, the good fortune of this normal idea has tended to vague particular proof proved by way of Kummer approximately cyclotomic fields which lie deeper than the overall concept.
This well-developed, available textual content info the ancient improvement of the topic all through. It additionally presents wide-ranging insurance of important effects with relatively undemanding proofs, a few of them new. This moment variation comprises new chapters that supply an entire facts of the Mordel-Weil theorem for elliptic curves over the rational numbers and an outline of modern growth at the mathematics of elliptic curves.
Mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike have lengthy been excited about geometrical difficulties, really those who are intuitive within the feel of being effortless to kingdom, maybe as a result of an easy diagram. every one part within the e-book describes an issue or a bunch of comparable difficulties. frequently the issues are able to generalization of edition in lots of instructions.
