An Introduction to the
Theory of Numbers
by Leo Moser
Description: This book, which presupposes familiarity only with the most elementary concepts
of arithmetic (divisibility properties, greatest common divisor, etc.), is an expanded version
of a series of lectures for graduate students on elementary number theory.
Topics include: Compositions and Partitions; Arithmetic Functions; Distribution of Primes;
Irrational Numbers; Congruences; Diophantine Equations; Combinatorial Number Theory; and
Geometry of Numbers. Three sections of problems (which include exercises as well as unsolved problems) complete the text.
This book is appropriate for a second undergraduate course in Number Theory, or as an introduction to the subject
for beginning graduate students.
