Summary:
"Higher Arithmetic explains number theory in a way that gives deductive reasoning, including algorithms and computations, the central role. Hands-on experience with the application of algorithms to computational examples enables students to master the fundamental ideas of basic number theory. This is a worthwhile goal for any student of mathematics and an essential one for students interested in the modern  Read more...

Abstract:

Number theory is the equal of Euclidean geometry - some would say it is superior to Euclidean geometry - as a model of pure, logical, deductive thinking. This title explains number theory in a way  Read more...
