**Topics in the Theory of Quadratic Residues**

by Steve Wright

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 160

**Description**:

Beginning with the fundamental contributions of Gauss, the study of quadratic residues and nonresidues has subsequently led directly to many of the key ideas and techniques that are used everywhere in number theory today, and the primary goal of these lectures is to use this study as a window through which to view the development of some of those ideas and techniques.
