Book DetailsStudent Mathematical LibraryVolume: 103; 2023; 375 ppMSC: Primary 11
This new edition of Analytic Number Theory for Beginners presents a friendly introduction to analytic number theory for both advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, and offers a comfortable transition between the two levels. The text starts with a review of elementary number theory and continues on to present less commonly covered topics such as multiplicative functions, the floor function, the use of big \(O\), little \(o\), and Vinogradov notation, as well as summation formulas. Standard advanced topics follow, such as the Dirichlet \(L\)function, Dirichlet's Theorem for primes in arithmetic progressions, the Riemann Zeta function, the Prime Number Theorem, and, new in this second edition, sieve methods and additive number theory.
The book is selfcontained and easy to follow. Each chapter provides examples and exercises of varying difficulty and ends with a section of notes which include a chapter summary, open questions, historical background, and resources for further study. Since many topics in this book are not typically covered at such an accessible level, Analytic Number Theory for Beginners is likely to fill an important niche in today's selection of titles in this field.
ReadershipUndergraduate and graduate students interested in analytic number theory.

Table of Contents

Chapters

Review of elementary number theory

Arithmetic functions I

Reviews

While this is a book for a first (graduate) course in analytic number theory, it contains recent results. For example, the book includes several theorems by Terrence Tao and his collaborators on primes in arithmetic progressions and on twin primes. In sum, 'Analytic Number Theory for Beginners' provides a brisk introduction to analytic number theory, with more than enough material for a graduate course.
