Book DetailsGraduate Studies in MathematicsVolume: 134; 2012; 414 ppMSC: Primary 11;
The authors assemble a fascinating collection of topics from analytic number theory that provides an introduction to the subject with a very clear and unique focus on the anatomy of integers, that is, on the study of the multiplicative structure of the integers. Some of the most important topics presented are the global and local behavior of arithmetic functions, an extensive study of smooth numbers, the HardyRamanujan and Landau theorems, characters and the Dirichlet theorem, the \(abc\) conjecture along with some of its applications, and sieve methods. The book concludes with a whole chapter on the index of composition of an integer.
One of this book's best features is the collection of problems at the end of each chapter that have been chosen carefully to reinforce the material. The authors include solutions to the evennumbered problems, making this volume very appropriate for readers who want to test their understanding of the theory presented in the book.ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in analytic number theory.
