Editorial Reviews

Review

'I'm pleased to report there is a new edition of R. Burn's A Pathway into Number Theory, a book that takes readers quickly and painlessly from simple facts about whole numbers to the wonders of the quadratic forms, Pell's equation and Minkowski's theorem.' Ian Stewart, New Scientist

'... admirably suitable for those meeting number theory for the first time and for unsupported individual study.' Nick Lord, The Mathematical Gazette

Book Description

Now in its second edition, this book consists of a sequence of exercises that will lead readers from simple number work to the point where they can prove algebraically the classical results of elementary number theory for themselves. A high-school course in mathematics is the only requirement.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By lstallings@gsu.edu on November 24, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book is a carefully sequenced set of problems along with answers and a few comments. Burn uses those problems to introduce important number theory ideas. I enjoyed working through the problems to learn more about number theory. Most problems are accessible to those with a good high school mathematics background.
