quantity concept is a department of arithmetic which attracts its energy from a wealthy old heritage. it's also generally nourished via interactions with different parts of study, comparable to algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, advanced research and harmonic research. extra lately, it has made a amazing visual appeal within the box of theoretical computing device technological know-how and in questions of conversation, cryptography and error-correcting codes. offering an straight forward creation to the relevant issues in quantity thought, this ebook spans a number of parts of analysis. the 1st half corresponds to a sophisticated undergraduate path. all the statements given during this half are after all observed by way of their proofs, with maybe the exception of a few effects showing on the finish of the chapters. A copious record of routines, of various trouble, also are incorporated right here. the second one half is of a better point and is correct for the 1st 12 months of graduate university. It comprises an advent to elliptic curves and a bankruptcy entitled “Developments and Open Problems”, which introduces and brings jointly a variety of subject matters orientated towards ongoing mathematical learn. Given the multifaceted nature of quantity idea, the first goals of this publication are to: - offer an outline of a few of the types of arithmetic worthy for learning numbers - show the need of deep and classical issues reminiscent of Gauss sums - spotlight the position that mathematics performs in sleek utilized arithmetic - comprise fresh proofs equivalent to the polynomial primality set of rules - technique topics of up to date learn reminiscent of elliptic curves - illustrate the great thing about mathematics the must haves for this article are undergraduate point algebra and a bit topology of Rn. it is going to be of use to undergraduates, graduates and phd scholars, and will additionally entice specialist mathematicians as a reference text.
