review Elementary Number Theory 103

characters Elementary Number Theory

Number theory set against a historical background that shows the subject's evolution from antiuity It reveals the. A very helpful book The book has few drawbacks if you are looking for a modern perspective on number theory However those drawbacks are barely noticeable One of the most beautiful features besides the mathematical ease of reading and presentation is the little stories about Euler Fermat Lagrange and multitude of other mathematicians It is a story of developments of number theory in the hands and minds of few brilliant number theorists distributed across the ages scattered across the globe A marvelous bookThe book is extremely constructive and helpful Burton helps you every step of the way with his hints littered across every exercise A very easy read However lack of recent developments might be wanting but any undergraduate getting introduced to number theory will appreciate the number of open problems Burton introduces in his text with relevant information Topics covered include Euclid s theorem Mobius inversion primality primitive roots a glimpse in to Group Theory modular arithmeticcongruences uadratic reciprocity Legendre and Jacobi symbols NR Pell s euation Pythagorean numbers Fermat conjectures and theorems Wilson theorem infinite fractions CRT and several minor topics not necessarily in order of mentioning I would recommend this book to any student taking a first course in Number Theory despite the lack of some topics in any elementary Number Theory Course Simply because of the excellent ease of reading and writing style

    Great book but on page 42 315 is actually the gcd of 4725 and 17640 not 17460 The gcd of 4725 and 17460 is 45 And 2^3 X 3^2 X 5 X 7^2 is 17640 not 17460 The factorization of 17460 is 2^2 X 3^2 X 5 X 97 the largest

    Didn't read the entire book but whatever I read was enough to convince me that this is a great book and if I ever read number theory again I will surely come back to this book
