**Topology of Numbers**

by Allen Hatcher

**Publisher**: Cornell University 2014**Number of pages**: 122

**Description**:

An introductory textbook on elementary number theory from a geometric point of view, as opposed to the usual strictly algebraic approach. A fair amount of the book is devoted to studying Conway's topographs associated to quadratic forms in two variables.
