A Classical Introduction to Modern Number TheoryBridging the gap between elementary number theory and the systematic study of advanced topics, A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory is a welldeveloped and accessible text that requires only a familiarity with basic abstract algebra. Historical development is stressed throughout, along with wideranging coverage of significant results with comparatively elementary proofs, some of them new. An extensive bibliography and many challenging exercises are also included. This second edition has been corrected and contains two new chapters which provide a complete proof of the MordellWeil theorem for elliptic curves over the rational numbers, and an overview of recent progress on the arithmetic of elliptic curves.
