Assuming only a modest background in elementary number theory, groups, and fields, Elliptic Curves: Number Theory an Cryptography introduces both the cryptographic and number theoretic sides of elliptic curves, interweaving the theory of elliptic curves with their applications." — From the back cover

    $49.50

    "Starting in the fall of 1986, I combined my interests in number theory and history by teaching a one-year course in number theory from a historical prospective. The course used historical highlights to show the development of various topics, and I included some discussion about the lives of famous number theorists. My lecture notes for the course turned into a more formal set of notes, which turned into this book. Both the spirit and organization of material in the book remain those of my original lectures." — Jay R. Goldman, author, in the Preface
