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.

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

The book on elementary number theory: compositions and partitions, arithmetic functions, distribution of primes, irrational numbers, congruences, Diophantine equations; combinatorial number theory, and geometry of numbers.
by William Stein - Springer
Textbook on number theory and elliptic curves. It discusses primes, factorization, continued fractions, quadratic forms, computation, elliptic curves, their applications to algorithmic problems, and connections with problems in number theory.

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.
