By Underwood Dudley

Ideal for a primary path in quantity idea, this full of life, attractive textual content calls for just a familiarity with trouble-free algebra and the homes of genuine numbers. writer Underwood Dudley, who has written a chain of renowned arithmetic books, continues that the way to examine arithmetic is by means of fixing difficulties. in line with this philosophy, the textual content comprises approximately 1,000 routines and problems—some computational and a few classical, many unique, and a few with entire suggestions.
The commencing chapters provide sound factors of the fundamentals of trouble-free quantity thought and develop the elemental houses of integers and congruences. next chapters current proofs of Fermat's and Wilson's theorems, introduce quantity theoretic capabilities, and discover the quadratic reciprocity theorem. 3 self reliant sections stick with, with examinations of the illustration of numbers, diophantine equations, and primes. The textual content concludes with 260 extra difficulties, 3 beneficial appendixes, and solutions to chose routines and problems.
