Introduction to Number Theory is a classroomtested, studentfriendly text that covers a diverse array of number theory topics, from the ancient Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor of two integers to recent developments such as 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 realworld 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. Ideal for a one or twosemester undergraduatelevel course, this Second Edition:  Features a more flexible structure that offers a greater range of options for course design
 Adds new sections on the representations of integers and the Chinese remainder theorem
 Expands exercise sets to encompass a wider variety of problems, many of which relate number theory to fields outside of mathematics (e.g., music)
 Provides calculations for computational experimentation using SageMath, a free opensource mathematics software system, as well as Mathematica? and Mapleā¢, online via a robust, authormaintained website
 Includes a solutions manual with qualifying course adoption
By tackling both fundamental and advanced subjectsand using worked examples, numerous exercises, and popular software packages to ensure a practical understandingIntroduction to Number Theory, Second Edition instills a solid foundation of number theory knowledge.< To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
