By Alan Baker

constructed from the author's well known textual content, A Concise advent to the idea of Numbers, this publication offers a complete initiation to all of the significant branches of quantity concept. starting with the rudiments of the topic, the writer proceeds to extra complex subject matters, together with parts of cryptography and primality trying out, an account of quantity fields within the classical vein together with homes in their devices, beliefs and perfect sessions, facets of analytic quantity idea together with experiences of the Riemann zeta-function, the prime-number theorem and primes in arithmetical progressions, an outline of the Hardy-Littlewood and sieve equipment from respectively additive and multiplicative quantity thought and an exposition of the mathematics of elliptic curves. The ebook comprises many labored examples, routines and additional interpreting. Its wider insurance and flexibility make this e-book compatible for classes extending from the user-friendly to starting graduate studies.

Elementary Number Theory: Second Edition (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Excellent for a primary direction in quantity conception, this energetic, attractive textual content calls for just a familiarity with trouble-free algebra and the homes of actual numbers. writer Underwood Dudley, who has written a chain of well known arithmetic books, continues that the way to research arithmetic is through fixing difficulties.

The Whole Truth About Whole Numbers: An Elementary Introduction to Number Theory

The total fact approximately entire Numbers is an creation to the sector of quantity thought for college kids in non-math and non-science majors who've studied no less than years of highschool algebra. instead of giving short introductions to a large choice of issues, this booklet offers an in-depth advent to the sector of quantity concept.

Quadratic Diophantine Equations (Developments in Mathematics)

This article treats the classical conception of quadratic diophantine equations and courses the reader during the final 20 years of computational recommendations and development within the sector. The presentation positive factors simple easy methods to examine and encourage the research of quadratic diophantine equations: the theories of persevered fractions and quadratic fields.

Factorization of Boundary Value Problems Using the Invariant Embedding Method

Factorization technique for Boundary worth difficulties via Invariant Embedding provides a brand new conception for linear elliptic boundary price difficulties. The authors offer a change of the matter in preliminary worth difficulties which are uncoupled, permitting you to unravel those successively. this system appears to be like just like the Gauss block factorization of the matrix, acquired in finite measurement after discretization of the matter.
