Book Description:

Updated in a seventh edition The Higher Arithmetic introduces concepts and theorems in a way that does not require the reader to have an in depth knowledge of the theory of numbers, but also touches upon matters of deep mathematical significance.'Although this book is not written as a textbook but rather as a work for the general reader, it could certainly be used as a textbook for an undergraduate course in number theory and, in the reviewers opinion, is far superior for this purpose to any other book in English'--From a review of the first edition in Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society

About the Author:

Harold Davenport F.R.S. was the late Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Trinity College.
