Elements of the Theory of Numbers teaches students how to develop, implement, and test numerical methods for standard mathematical problems. The authors, Joseph and Thomas Dence, have developed a comprehensive, rigorous overview of number theory. This text makes greater use of the language and concepts in algebra and analysis than is traditionally encountered in introductory courses.
Professors and students will welcome how the chapters are divided into two sets: Chapters 1-6 and part of Chapter 7 pertain to all readers. This set ends with a full chapter on number fields. Chapters 10 and 11 are considered special topics which allow greater flexibility for the professor.
