“It is a matter for considerable regret that Fermat, who cultivated the theory of numbers with so much success, did not leave us with the proofs of the theorems he truth, Messrs Euler and Lagrange, who have not disdained this kind of research, have proved most of these theorems, and have even substituted extensive theories for the isolated propositions of Fermat. Get this from a library! Computational Excursions in analysis and number theory. [Peter B Borwein] -- This book focuses on a variety of problems in number theory and analysis. The problems concern polynomials with integer coefficients and typically ask something about the size of the polynomial with.

  Excursions in Number Theory. Written on Decem Written by cspice. I must say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. It is rare that an author of a mathematical book can make the text flow so smoothly and have all the math be so clear. I was stunned over and over at the amazing things that number theory contains. mation about number theory; see the Bibliography. The websites by Chris Caldwell [2] and by Eric Weisstein [13] are especially good. To see what is going on at the frontier of the subject, you may take a look at some recent issues of the Journal of Number Theory which you will find in any university library.

This book offers an excursion into the world of number sequences, objects that occur widely all through Mathematics. Part I deals with the generating formula of a sequence, and Part II with individual sequences such as the squares, the cubes.   "Excursions in Number Theory" Book Review? I'm in 10th grade and taking math 3 (precalculus). I was wondering wether this is a good book for beginners in number theory.

Computational Excursions in Analysis and Number Theory "Borwein has collected known results in the direction of several related, appealing, old, open problems (Integer Chebyshev, Prouhet-Tarry-Escott, Erdos-Szekeres, Littlewood).

Far from narrow, this interdisciplinary book draws on Diophantine, analytic, and probabilistic by: Challenging, accessible mathematical adventures involving prime numbers, number patterns, irrationals and iterations, calculating prodigies, and more.

No special training is needed, just high school mathematics and an inquisitive mind. "A splendidly written, well selected and presented collection. I recommend the book unreservedly to all readers." — Martin Gardner.

This is an introductory book in number theory that was published in as a popular math book, but in modern terms is somewhere between popular math and an introductory course. It assumes the reader is competent at high-school algebra (mostly polynomial equations) and radicals, but does not have any exercises and is not systematic.

In sum, Excursions in Number Theory offers a splendid compromise between highly technical treatments inaccessible to lay readers and popular books with too little substance. Its stimulating and challenging presentation of significant aspects of number theory may be read lightly for enjoyment or studied closely for an exhilarating mental challenge.

These problems, all of which lend themselves to extensive computational exploration, live at the interface of analysis, combinatorics and number theory so the techniques involved are diverse.
