Product description


'Although this book is not written as a textbook but rather as a work for the general reader, it could certainly be used as a textbook for an undergraduate course in number theory and, in the reviewer's opinion, is far superior for this purpose to any other book in English.' From a review of the first edition in Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society

'… the well-known and charming introduction to number theory … can be recommended both for independent study and as a reference text for a general mathematical audience.' European Maths Society Journal

'Its popularity is based on a very readable style of exposition.' EMS Newsletter

Book Description

Now into its eighth edition and with additional material on primality testing written by J. H. Davenport, The Higher Arithmetic introduces concepts and theorems in a way that does not assume an in-depth knowledge of the theory of numbers but touches upon matters of deep mathematical significance.
