Elementary Number Theory
by William Edwin Clark
Publisher: University of South Florida 2002
Number of pages: 129
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.

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.

These are notes for an undergraduate course in number theory. Proofs of basic theorems are presented in an interesting and comprehensive way that can be read and understood even by non-majors. The exercises broaden the understanding of the concepts.

The substance of all that has been written on this subject by Nicomachus, Iamblichus, and Boetius, together with some particulars respecting perfect, amicable, and other numbers, which are not to be found in the writings of modern mathematicians.
