Most topics we will be covering are standard and can be found in any university level elementary number theory book.

This book is inexpensive and manages to cover a lot in only pages. Alan Baker, the author of the book, has won the Fields medal for his work in transcendental number theory.

The book is very well written, and has nice exercises.

Baker has a nice way of compressing information, and manages to cover in a paragraph what oth- ers may cover in a page, without losing clarity. However, the compressed style also means the book may be harder to read as say Hardy-Wright.

In earlier editions, primitive roots were used for this proof. The chapters on primitive roots Chapters 28—29 have been moved to follow the chapters on quadratic reciprocity and sums of squares Chapters 20— The rationale for this change is the author's experience that students find the Primitive Root Theorem to be among the most difficult in the book.

The new order allows the instructor to cover quadratic reciprocity first, and to omit primitive roots entirely if desired. Chapter 22 now includes a proof of part of quadratic reciprocity for Jacobi symbols, with the remaining parts included as exercises.

Quadratic reciprocity is now proved in full. The proofs for -1 p and 2 p remain as before in Chapter 21, and there is a new chapter Chapter 23 that gives Eisenstein's proof for p q q p.

Chapter 23 is significantly more difficult than the chapters that precede it, and it may be omitted without affecting the subsequent chapters. Exercise Break the code and decipher the message. Use your program to factor the following numbers.

Compute the encrypted message e 1 , e 2 he should send to Alice. Will the encrypted message be the same?

Goals in this course

Click on the links for the following material. What Is Number Theory?

Chapter 2:Share a link to All Resources. The Boulder Faculty Assembly has stated : An undergraduate student should expect to spend approximately 3 hours per week outside of class for each credit hour earned.

Textbook and other reference material: Our textbook will be An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers by Hardy and Wright, 6 th edition. This is a 3-credit course, so you should make sure you have 9 additional hours available each week to spend on this class.

You may choose a theorem that we have already discussed in class or one that we have not.
