A Brief History of Numbers is a phenomenal book. It covers a lot of material in a easily accessible way. I’ve often read about early numbers and systems for counting. This covers the basic materials you’d expect from a history of numbers book. This book does more than just cover the history of numbers/5(5).

Number theory has always fascinated amateurs as well as professional mathematicians. Number theory - Number theory - Euclid: By contrast, Euclid presented number theory without the flourishes. He began Book VII of his Elements by defining a number as “a multitude composed of units.” The plural here excluded 1; for Euclid, 2 was the smallest “number.” He later defined a prime as a number “measured by a unit alone” (i.e., whose only proper divisor is 1), a.

Dickson. This book describes the development of our understanding of perfect numbers. It also covers standard topics, such as Fermat's theorems, primitive roots, counting divisors, the Mobius function, and prime numbers themselves.

In this book you dive into mathematical arguments. Number Theory is right for this in part because of its accessibility. But always keep in mind the caution: do not underestimate the material.

Number theory (or arithmetic or higher arithmetic in older usage) is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers and integer-valued mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (–) said, "Mathematics is the queen of the sciences—and number theory is the queen of mathematics." Number theorists study prime numbers as well as the.

And as this chapter indicates, number theory can also be used to provide many examples of the basic phenomena discussed in this book. Number theory is a vast and sprawling subject, and over the years this book has acquired many new chapters.

In order to keep the length of this edition to a reasonable size, Chapters 47–50 have been removed from the printed version of the book.

The theory of numbers includes much of mathematics, particularly mathematical analysis. Generally, the theory of numbers is confined to the study of integers, or occasionally to some other set of numbers.

Remarks on the History of Complex Numbers. The study of numbers comes usually in succession. Children start with the counting numbers. Move to the negative integers and fractions. Dig into the decimal fractions and sometimes continue to the real numbers. The complex numbers come last, if at all.

Every expansion of the notion of numbers has a valid practical explanation. The world around us is saturated with numbers. They are a fundamental pillar of our modern society, and accepted and used with hardly a second thought. But how did this state of affairs come to be?
