 Summary
 "Number Theory" is more than a comprehensive treatment of the subject. It is an introduction to topics in higher level mathematics, and unique in its scope; topics from analysis, modern algebra, and discrete mathematics are all included. The book is divided into two parts. Part A covers key concepts of number theory and could serve as a first course on the subject. Part B delves into more advanced topics and an exploration of related mathematics. Part B contains, for example, complete proofs of the HasseMinkowski theorem and the prime number theorem, as well as selfcontained accounts of the character theory of finite groups and the theory of elliptic functions. The prerequisites for this selfcontained text are elements from linear algebra. Valuable references for the reader are collected at the end of each chapter. It is suitable as an introduction to higher level mathematics for undergraduates, or for selfstudy. From the reviews: "This is a book which many mathematicians could enjoy browsing, and one which a good undergraduate could be encouraged to read to learn something of the interconnections, which exist between apparently disparate parts of mathematics."Canadian Mathematical Society "As a source for information on the 'reach' of number theory into other areas of mathematics, it is an excellent work." Mathematical Association of America
