This version has been referred to as ‘startlingly up-to-date’, and during this corrected moment printing you may be definite that it’s much more contemporaneous. It surveys from a unified standpoint either the fashionable kingdom and the tendencies of constant improvement in numerous branches of quantity concept. Illuminated via undemanding difficulties, the vital principles of recent theories are laid naked. a few subject matters lined contain non-Abelian generalizations of sophistication box concept, recursive computability and Diophantine equations, zeta- and L-functions. This considerably revised and elevated new version includes a number of new sections, equivalent to Wiles' evidence of Fermat's final Theorem, and suitable strategies coming from a synthesis of assorted theories.
