Now into its Eighth edition, The Higher Arithmetic introduces the classic concepts and theorems of number theory in a way that does not require the reader to have an in-depth knowledge of the theory of numbers The theory of numbers is considered to be the purest branch of pure mathematics and is also one of the most highly active and engaging areas of mathematics today. Since earlier editions, additional material written by J. H. Davenport has been added, on topics such as Wiles' proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, computers & number theory, and primality testing. Written to be accessible to the general reader, this classic book is also ideal for undergraduate courses on number theory, and covers all the necessary material clearly and succinctly.
