Book DetailsDIMACS  Series in Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer ScienceVolume: 64; 2004; 264 ppMSC: Primary 11;
This volume contains the proceedings of the workshop held at the DIMACS Center of Rutgers University (Piscataway, NJ) on Unusual Applications of Number Theory. Standard applications of number theory are to computer science and cryptology. In this volume, wellknown number theorist, Melvyn B. Nathanson, gathers articles from the workshop on other, less standard applications in number theory, as well as topics in number theory with potential applications in science and engineering.
The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in number theory and its applications.ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory and applications.
