Introduction to number theory

By: Erickson, Martin.
Contributor(s): Vazzana, Anthony.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Discrete Mathematics and its Applications. Publisher: Boca Raton Chapman & Hall/CRC 2008Description: 521 p.ISBN: 9781584889373.Subject(s): Number theory - HistoryDDC classification: 512.7 Summary: This text covers a wide range of subjects, from the ancient Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor of two integers to recent developments that include cryptography, the theory of elliptic curves, and the negative solution of Hilbert's tenth problem. The authors illustrate the connections between number theory and other areas of mathematics, including algebra, analysis, and combinatorics. They also describe applications of number theory to real-world problems, such as congruences in the ISBN system, modular arithmetic and Euler's theorem in RSA encryption, and quadratic residues in the construction of tournaments. The book interweaves the theoretical development of the material with Mathematica and Maple calculations while giving brief tutorials on the software in the appendices.
