A Pathway Into Number Theory by R. P. Burn

By R. P. Burn

quantity concept is worried with the houses of the average numbers: 1, 2, three … through the 17th and eighteenth centuries, quantity thought turned proven during the paintings of Fermat, Euler and Gauss. With the hand calculators and desktops of this day the result of huge numerical paintings are immediately to be had and the line resulting in their discoveries should be traversed with comparative care. Now in its moment variation, this ebook involves a series of workouts that may lead readers from very simple quantity paintings to the purpose the place they could end up algebraically the classical result of common quantity thought for themselves. a contemporary secondary university direction in arithmetic is enough historical past for the full booklet that is designed for use as an undergraduate path in quantity thought to be pursued via self sufficient learn with out helping lectures.
