*Kazuya Kato; Nobushige Kurokawa; Takeshi Saito*

This is the English translation of the original Japanese book. In this volume, “Fermat's Dream”, core theories in modern number theory are introduced. Developments are given in elliptic curves, \(p\)-adic numbers, the \(\zeta\)-function, and the number fields. This work presents an elegant perspective on the wonder of numbers. Number Theory 2 on class field theory, and Number Theory 3 on Iwasawa theory and the theory of modular forms, are forthcoming in the series.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

This book can be recommended to any scholar or student having the required background; in particular, it would make excellent supplementary reading for students having taken a first course in number theory. The text would also constitute a good basis for lectures to an audience of nonspecialists.
