Pressestimmen

'I'm pleased to report there is a new edition of R. Burn's A Pathway into Number Theory, a book that takes readers quickly and painlessly from simple facts about whole numbers to the wonders of the quadratic forms, Pell's equation and Minkowski's theorem.' Ian Stewart, New Scientist '... admirably suitable for those meeting number theory for the first time and for unsupported individual study.' Nick Lord, The Mathematical Gazette
