Item description for A Course in Computational Number Theory (Textbooks in Mathematical Sciences) by David Bressoud...
This text will be a modern introduction to number theory, a course taught at most colleges and universities, primarily to math and c.s. majors, and will place heavy and continuing emphasis on algorithmic aspects of the subject. The language of the algorithms used will be the popular Mathematica, and a comprehensive set of notebooks will be included on a book web site. While the emphasis will be on modern topics like factorization and primality testing techniques, there will be extensive coverage of traditional number theory. Among its features willbe lots of displayed computations, and the inclusion of many computer exercises for students.

Typesetting ruins a great book Dec 28, 2007
I love the hardcover version of this book and was really excited to see I could get it on the kindle. It was the first thing I ordered and was the first big disappointment.
The typesetting for the math equations makes many of them essentially unreadable with characters overstriking other characters, super and subscripts far from the characters they are super or subscripting, etc..
It appears to me that this site is probably using OCR technology that isn't handling this stuff well. Personally I think they should reimburse me for this poorly transcribed version of what is such a great book in the hardcover version although I'm not going to push it.
