**Elementary Number Theory**

by William Edwin Clark

**Publisher**: University of South Florida 2002**Number of pages**: 129

**Description**:

At first blush one might think that of all areas of mathematics certainly arithmetic should be the simplest, but it is a surprisingly deep subject. We assume that students have some familiarity with basic set theory, and calculus. To a great extent the book is self-contained. It requires only a certain amount of mathematical maturity. Before the course is over students will be introduced to the symbolic programming language Maple which is an excellent tool for exploring number theoretic questions.
