## Disquisitiones Arithmeticae (Softcover)"The first translation into English of the standard work on the theory of numbers by one of the greatest masters of modern mathematical analysis, this classic was first published in 1801 in Latin. It has continued to be important to mathematicians as the source of the ideas from which modern number theory was developed and to students of the history of the mathematical sciences." — From the back cover ## $29.25 |

**GOOD:** This book is in good condition. There is no writing on the pages, but there is what appears to be ink transfers between the inside covers and their adjoining end pages (does not affect the rest of the book). The spine is intact and the covers’ corners are straight.

## Description

From the back cover: “Father Clarke has achieved a sympathetic and faithful translation of this monumental work. The book is complete and unabridged, and a directory of terms and a list of special symbols have been added by the translator.

“‘Whatever set of values is adopted, Gauss’ *Disquisitiones Arithmetaicae* surely belongs among the greatest mathematical treatises of all fields and periods. Of the rich contents that can be mentioned are the section on quadratic residues with the first proof of the law of reciprocity, the discussion of quadratic forms, and the analysis of the cyclotomic equation with its implication for constructibilty of regular polygons. It is absurd that though Gauss’ *Theoria Motus* has long been available in English, his *Disquisitiones Arithmeticae* has not, and the appearance of an English version of this classic is most welcome.’ — Asger Aaboe.”

#### The Queen of Mathematics: A Historically Motivated Guide to Number Theory (Hardback)

$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
