An introductory textbook on elementary number theory from a geometric point of view, as opposed to the strictly algebraic approach. A fair amount of the book is devoted to studying Conway's topographs associated to quadratic forms in two variables.
by William Stein - Springer
Textbook on number theory and elliptic curves. It discusses primes, factorization, continued fractions, quadratic forms, computation, elliptic curves, their applications to algorithmic problems, and connections with problems in number theory.
