Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 83170 ("Exercise Class Elementary Number Theory")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.

Contents

  • Unique prime decomposition in ℤ, linear diophantine equations,
  • Euler's phi function, structure of the primary residual class group (ℤ/nℤ)*,
  • Gaussian reciprocity law,
  • quadratic number fields, decomposition behaviour of prime numbers, sums of squares.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students know the basic concepts, statements and methods of number theory. In particular, an advanced ability of abstraction was promoted.

Literature

  • R. Remmert, P. Ullrich: Elementare Zahlentheorie,
  • R. Schulze-Pillot: Einführung in die Algebra und Zahlentheorie,
  • T. Apostol: Introduction to Analytic Number Theory.

Materials

Further literature will be announced in the lecture(s); exercise material is provided.

Registration
