An introduction to the theory of numbers. 5th ed. (English) Zbl 0423.10001
Oxford etc.: Oxford at the Clarendon Press. xvi, 426 p. hbk: £17.50; pbk: £8.00 (1979).
From the preface: The main changes in this edition are in the notion at the end of each chapter. I have sought to provide up-to-date reference for the reader who whishes to pursue a particular topic further and to present, both in the notes and in the text, a reasonably accurate account of the present state of knowledge. …There is a new, more transparent proof of Theorem 445 [on uniform distribution modulo of \((n\vartheta)\) – the reviewer] and an account of my changed opinion about Theodorus’ method in irrationals. To facilitate the use of this edition for references purposes, I have, so far as possible, kept the page numbers unchanged. For this reason, I have added a short appendix on recent progress in some aspects of the theory of prime numbers, rather than insert the material in the appropriate places in the text.
