Transcendental number theory by
Alan Baker(
Book
)
47 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1975, this classic book gives a systematic account of transcendental number theory, that is those numbers which cannot be expressed as the roots of algebraic equations having rational coefficients. Their study has developed into a fertile and extensive theory enriching many branches of pure mathematics. Expositions are presented of theories relating to linear forms in the logarithms of algebraic numbers, of Schmidt's generalisation of the ThueSiegelRoth theorem, of Shidlovsky's work on Siegel's

A concise introduction to the theory of numbers by
Alan Baker(
Book
)
37 editions published between 1984 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Number theory has a long and distinguished history and the concepts and problems relating to the subject have been instrumental in the foundation of much of mathematics. In this book, Professor Baker describes the rudiments of number theory in a concise, simple and direct manner. Though most of the text is classical in content, he includes many guides to further study which will stimulate the reader to delve into the great wealth of literature devoted to the subject. The book is based on Professor Baker's lectures given at the University of Cambridge and is intended for undergraduate students of mathematics."  Back cover

A comprehensive course in number theory by
Alan Baker(
Book
)
21 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Developed from the author's popular text, A Concise Introduction to the Theory of Numbers, this book provides a comprehensive initiation to all the major branches of number theory. Beginning with the rudiments of the subject, the author proceeds to more advanced topics, including elements of cryptography and primality testing, an account of number fields in the classical vein including properties of their units, ideals and ideal classes, aspects of analytic number theory including studies of the Riemann zetafunction, the primenumber theorem and primes in arithmetical progressions, a description of the HardyLittlewood and sieve methods from respectively additive and multiplicative number theory and an exposition of the arithmetic of elliptic curves. The book includes many worked examples, exercises and further reading. Its wider coverage and versatility make this book suitable for courses extending from the elementary to beginning graduate studies"
