Number Theory

£10.99

Product description

"This new title in the University Mathematical Texts series is an introduction to the Theory of Numbers. The first three chapters contain a basic course in the subject, covering properties of division, primes and unique factorisation, elementary congruences and the algebraic structure of sets of congruence classes. Further chapters present a development of the theory of algebraic congruences and quadratic residues and emphasise the close connection of these subjects with important branches of algebra. Chapter six gives an introduction to the interesting subject of representation of integers by quadratic forms.

This book is mainly for university students but the first half will be useful for basic Number Theory courses in Teacher Training Colleges and for good sixth year school pupils. Mathematics teachers will find it an excellent refresher course which will bring them up to date with latest ideas."

Book pages are in very good condition, but with a few markings in pencil.
Book hardback cover is in very good condition. Dust jacket has some tears and damage particularly along the spine.
There is an ink inscription on the inside front cover.
