Item description for Number Theory for Computing by Song Y. Yan...

Dr. Song Y. Yan teaches at the School of Mathematical and Information Sciences at Coventry University in the UK. In 1996 he published the book "Perfect, Amicable and Sociable Numbers" with World Scientific. Yan's statement about competitive literature: "There are many books in elementary number theory and a few books in algorithmic number theory published by Springer- Verlag and other publishers, but my book is different from all of them. First of all, my book is essential for computer scientists rather than for mathematicians. Secondly, my book combines three different topics in elementary number theory, computational number theory and applied number theory into a single and unique way that is accessible to computer scien- tists."

Reviews - What do customers think about Number Theory for Computing?

A gifted writer opens many doors for the student  Sep 1, 2000
I just picked this monograph up at the Crypto-2000 conference at UCSB. It is an unassuming, straight forward walk through the elements of computational number theory. The author claims all that is required is high school math; however, once cracking the book open the reader finds that the material is more directed at the advanced undergraduate, or even the graduate math student, computer scientist, or to he/she who wants a singular experience in good mathematics. For example, there are side bars that touch on some of the very brightest of the number theory elite; providing much needed insight as to their motivations and pursuits of attack. Many a complicated concept is rendered harmless and fashioned readily available for the learned reader. It is the kind of book that you can not put down. I passed it around to a few of my colleaques; the book quickly became a pleasent read for them followed up by a request to forward the ISBN number to their email accounts. The author knows the crafts of both writing well and displaying the beauty of number theory. Lastly, the technical content is not watered down, the author maintains academic discipline while making anecdotal information available via side-bars. Otherwise, the inspired reader would have to track down a text on the history of mathematics to sort out the 'story' behind the insights. Instead it is "all" there for you to consider or mark for a later read.
