Additional books from the extended shelves. 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 properties of. ( views) The Theory of Numbers by R. D. Carmichael - John Wiley & Sons, The purpose of this book is to give the reader a convenient introduction to the theory of numbers. The treatment throughout is made as brief as is possible consistent with clearness and is confined entirely to fundamental matters. ( views) Elementary Number. many of the basic theorems of number theory stem from the investigation of the Greeks into the problem of perfect and Pythagorean numbers [16]. Moreover, it was while investigating these numbers that Fermat discovered the (little) theorem that bears his name and which forms the basis of a substantial part of the theory of numbers.
