Book DetailsFields Institute CommunicationsVolume: 41; 2004; 392 ppMSC: Primary 11; 94; 14
This volume consists of a selection of papers based on presentations made at the international conference on number theory held in honor of Hugh Williams' sixtieth birthday. The papers address topics in the areas of computational and explicit number theory and its applications. The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in number theory.
Titles in this series are copublished with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory.
