The higher arithmetic : an introduction to the theory of numbers by
Harold Davenport(
Book
)
60 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Updated in this seventh edition, this text introduces concepts and theorems in a way that does not require the reader to have an indepth knowledge of the theory of numbers, but still touches upon matters of deep mathematical significance

Multiplicative number theory by
Harold Davenport(
Book
)
56 editions published between 1967 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book thoroughly examines the distribution of prime numbers in arithmetic progressions. It covers many classical results, including the Dirichlet theorem on the existence of prime numbers in arithmetic progressions, the theorem of Siegel, and functional equations of the Lfunctions and their consequences for the distribution of prime numbers. In addition, a simplified, improved version of the large sieve method is presented. The third edition includes a large number of revisions and corrections as well as a new section with references to more recent work in the field."Jacket

Analytic methods for Diophantine equations and Diophantine inequalities by
Harold Davenport(
)
29 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Harold Davenport was one of the truly great mathematicians of the twentieth century. Based on lectures he gave at the University of Michigan in the early 1960s, this book is concerned with the use of analytic methods in the study of integer solutions to Diophantine equations and Diophantine inequalities. It provides an introduction to a timeless area of number theory that is still as relevant today as it was when the book originally appeared."Jacket

The higher arithmetic; an introduction to the theory of numbers by
Harold Davenport(
Book
)
55 editions published between 1952 and 2008 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dr. Davenport introduces the higher arithmatic in this brief but rigorous essay. The Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University brings an extraordinarily clear prose to these sometimes opaque realms, offering a book that "will not be read without effort by those who are not, in some sense at least, mathematicians. But the difficulty is partly that of the subject itself. It cannot be evaded by using imperfect analogies, or by presenting the proofs in a way which may convey the main idea of the argument, but is inaccurate in detail. Such evasion would destroy the special interest of this most exact of all the sciences." Exacting college mathematics majors and advanced high school students will find a valuable and readable survey of factorization and the primes, congruences, quadratic residues, continued fractions, sums of squares, quadratic forms and some Diophantine equations. Extensive notes, references and bibliography complete this clearest of summaries, still the best beginning path to the purest of pure mathematics.  from back cover
