Topics in the Theory of Quadratic Residues
by Steve Wright
Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 160
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.

The goal is to find and explore open questions in both geometry of numbers -- e.g. Lattice Point Enumerators, the Ehrhart-Polynomial, Minkowski's Convex Body Theorems, Minkowski-Hlawka Theorem, ... -- and its applications to number theory.

This is a book combining two essays: 'Continuity and irrational numbers' - Dedekind's way of defining the real numbers from rational numbers; and 'The nature and meaning of numbers' where Dedekind offers a precise explication of the natural numbers.

The focus is on elliptic curves over function fields over finite fields. We explain the main classical results on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture in this context and its connection to the Tate conjecture about divisors on surfaces.

In the 1970's a Rumanian mathematician Florentin Smarandache created a new function in number theory, which consequences encompass many areas of mathematics.The purpose of this text is to examine some of those consequences.
