Elementary Number Theory and its Applications – Kenneth Rosen – 1st Edition


Elementary and Its Applicationsis noted for its outstanding exercise sets, including basic exercises, exercises designed to help students explore key concepts, and challenging exercises.

exercises and projects are also provided. In addition to years of use and professor feedback, this edition has been thoroughly checked to ensure the quality and accuracy of the mathematical content and the exercises. The blending of classical theory with modern is a hallmark feature of the text.

This Edition builds on this strength with new examples and exercises, additional applications and increased coverage. The author devotes a great deal of attention to making this new edition up-to-date, incorporating new results and discoveries in number theory made in the past few years.
