By R. P. Burn

quantity conception is worried with the homes of the normal numbers: 1, 2, three … through the 17th and eighteenth centuries, quantity idea turned tested throughout the paintings of Fermat, Euler and Gauss. With the hand calculators and pcs of at the present time the result of huge numerical paintings are immediately to be had and the line resulting in their discoveries should be traversed with comparative care. Now in its moment version, this booklet contains a chain of routines that may lead readers from very simple quantity paintings to the purpose the place they could end up algebraically the classical result of effortless quantity thought for themselves. a latest secondary tuition direction in arithmetic is enough historical past for the full booklet that's designed for use as an undergraduate path in quantity thought to be pursued through autonomous research with out aiding lectures.
