Elementary Number Theory

Front Cover

5 Reviews
An undergraduate-level introduction to number theory, with the emphasis on fully explained proofs and examples. Exercises, together with their solutions are integrated into the text, and the first few chapters assume only basic school algebra. Elementary ideas about groups and rings are then used to study groups of units, quadratic residues and arithmetic functions with applications to enumeration and cryptography. The final part, suitable for third-year students, uses ideas from algebra, analysis, calculus and geometry to study Dirichlet series and sums of squares. In particular, the last chapter gives a concise account of Fermat's Last Theorem, from its origin in the ancient Babylonian and Greek study of Pythagorean triples to its recent proof by Andrew Wiles.

Good book; covers most of the interesting topics in number theory. Full of good examples and exercises wish solutions in the back.
One notation had me a little puzzled - the use of a decimal point
for multiplication. But this is easy to get used to since all numbers of concern are integers. 5 stars!
