Suggestions on good number theory books???
Hi,
I am in need of a number theory book to learn all such things about primes, modular arithmetics and those kind of stuff. I live in turkey and can not find all i intend to. Currently i'm studying from the book: An Introduction to THE THEORY OF NUMBERS Ivan Niven Herbert S. Zuckerman Hugh L. Montgomery Wiley Publications, 5th Edition Is there any suggestions for me to read from a better story telling book? Or a website which shows all elementary things ( please do not refer www.utm.edu/research/primes/... as it is not giving complete information ) I am impatiently waiting for your response. Bye...

This is a great book dealing with factoring, primes, and algorithms:
"Prime Numbers: A Computational Perspective", by Richard Crandall and Carl Pomerance

"Elementary Number Theory and its applications", 4th edition by Kenneth H. Rosen is a very nice intro to number theory.

Books on Number Theory.

The book you mention is a bit elaborate for beginners. I would recommend the following which are very good and elementary but contains all you require to get started. 1) Invitation to number theory: Author Oystein Ore. Publishers: The mathematical association 0f America (MAA) Volume 20 ; ISBN 0883856204 2)Number theory and its History: Author Oystein Ore. Publishers Dover publications. ISBN:0486656209 (pbk) 3)An adventurer's guide to number theory: Author, Richard Friedberg. PublishersDover Publications. ISBN 0486281337 (pbk) These books have a bibliography which could lead you onto other books. For these books try  Amazon.com from which you can order them. They also have used books which are much cheaper than the new ones and in paperback Best of luck. Mally

Crandall/Pomerance is great in that it achieves a nice balance between theory and practice, and gives a lot of recent exciting results which help motivate the reader to understand the material better. It also doesn't assume a deep number theory background on the part of the reader for most of its coverage, although some of the more advanced material will be difficult for the NT novice.
Another book which achieves a similar balance and is extremely readable, but is a bit dated as far as algorithms go, is "Prime Numbers and Computer Methods for Factorization," by Hans Riesel, discoverer of the Mersenne prime M3217. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books The same Amazon.com page also has links to several other introductory NT texts, including Crandall/Pomerance and another one by David Bressoud (which I haven't read, so can't vouch for).

Suggestions and Preferable Hints.
Then try to but one online at Amazon's or be interested in school math textbooks and search ofr the glossary and key words.
