Number theory (or arithmetic or higher arithmetic in older usage) is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers and integer-valued mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (–) said, "Mathematics is the queen of the sciences—and number theory is the queen of mathematics." Number theorists study prime numbers as well as the Get this from a library! Not always buried deep: a second course in elementary number theory. [Paul Pollack] -- The heart of this book is a thorough introduction to elementary prime number theory, including Dirichlet's theorem on primes in arithmetic progressions, the Brun sieve, and the Erdös-Selberg proof

It covers everything one expects in a first course in this field, such as growth of arithmetic functions, existence of primes in arithmetic progressions, and the Prime Number Theorem. But it also covers more challenging topics that might be used in a second course, such as the Siegel-Walfisz ?id.

The book covers topics ranging from elementary number theory (such as the unique factorization of integers or Fermat's little theorem) to Dirichlet's theorem about primes in arithmetic progressions and his class number formula for quadratic fields, and it treats standard material such as Dedekind domains, integral bases, the decomposition of The theory of quadratic forms goes back to Gauss’s Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, which of course does not use the language of number theory was the heart of Dirichlet’s Lectures on Number was in an appendix to this book (not, alas, included in the translation) that Dedekind first introduced his theory of ideals, with the aim of giving a simpler account of Gauss’s
