New. Penned by internationally respected and recognised mathematicians, this book is a famous staple text for the broad subject of number theory. An Introduction To The Theory Of Numbers has been divided into 11 chapters, some of which are Simple Continued Fractions, The Partition Function, Functions of Number Theory, Divisibility, Quadratic Reciprocity and Quadratic Forms, The Density of Sequences of Integers, and Diophantine Equations. Towards the end of the book, there are appendices for topics like Symmetric Functions, Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, and Linear Recurrences. This particular fifth edition of the book addresses a range of calculational issues and consists of certain revisions and additions, including information regarding Rational Points on Curves, Dirichlet series, Public-key Cryptography, Asymptotic Density, and much more. In order to provide the best possible understanding of the concepts discussed in An Introduction To The Theory Of Numbers, the authors have used longer proofs that serve as better insights for developing ones mathematical acumen. The author have included many problems with varying difficulty in this book. This book is suitable for undergraduates and students starting their graduate course. Printed Pages: 541. 15 x 23 cm.
