The Theory of Numbers
by R. D. Carmichael
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons 1914
Number of pages: 85
The purpose of this little book is to give the reader a convenient introduction to the theory of numbers, one of the most extensive and most elegant disciplines in the whole body of mathematics. The treatment throughout is made as brief as is possible consistent with clearness and is confined entirely to fundamental matters.

The variety of topics covered here includes divisibility, diophantine equations, prime numbers, the basic arithmetic functions, congruences, the quadratic reciprocity law, expansion of real numbers into decimal fractions, and more.

An introduction to the elementary techniques of number theory: division and factorization, arithmetic functions, congruences, quadratic residues, sums of integer squares, elementary prime number theory, Gauss sums and quadratic reciprocity.
by Allen Hatcher - Cornell University
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.

One might think that of all areas of mathematics arithmetic should be the simplest, but it is a surprisingly deep subject. It is assumed that students have some familiarity with set theory, calculus, and a certain amount of mathematical maturity.
