Kursbeskrivning
Number theory is unlike much of "modern mathematics" in that it is fundamentally a collection of problems, rather than a theory. The course will be taught from this perspective, as an introduction to a broad range of problems in number theory, and the kinds of methods used to attack them (elementary, combinatorial, geometric, analytic, algebraic, probabilistic). Certain topics will be given highest priority, such as prime numbers, Diophantine equations, additive problems.
