Elementary Number Theory by William Edwin Clark

Elementary Number Theory
by

Publisher: University of South Florida
Number of pages: 129

Description:
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.
