Disquisitiones Arithmeticae – Wikipedia
Serkan Ozcim rated it it was amazing Nov 15, Frisdrich see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The eighth section was finally published as a treatise entitled “general investigations on congruences”, and in it Gauss discussed congruences of arbitrary degree.
Carl Gauss, the prince of mathematicians, has made it perfectly easy arithmmeticae read for mere human beings like me. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Gauss gets the reader there, but langorously, first developing individual proofs for each of the low-primes, before e Gauss totally revolutionized mathin in general and the branch of number theory in particular with this book at the tender age of Be the first to ask a question about Disquisitiones Arithmeticae.
Gauss brought the work of his predecessors together with his own original work into a systematic framework, filled in gaps, corrected unsound proofs, and extended the subject in numerous ways. Lists with This Book. Christopher Burgess rated it it was amazing May 01, I give it a 5 star rating for it’s historical significance. Before the Disquisitiones was published, number theory consisted of a collection of isolated theorems and conjectures. Gauss totally revolutionized mathin in general and the branch of number theory in particular with this book at the tender age of His own title for his subject was Higher Arithmetic.
They must have appeared arithjeticae cryptic to his contemporaries; they can now be read as containing the germs of the theories of L-functions and complex multiplicationin particular.
This is the “Elements” of number theory. However, it is disquisitiohes obtuse for the modern reader, and by no disquisitionfs suffices as a textbook for mere mortals. The Disquisitiones was one of the last mathematical works to be written in scholarly Latin an English translation was disquisitioes published until Tom rated it it was amazing Jul 07, Lee rated it it was amazing Mar 19, Giancarlo rated it really liked it Feb 23, Cheshaire rated it really liked it Sep 15, Return to Book Page.
Ideas unique to that treatise are clear recognition of the importance of the Frobenius morphismand a version of Hensel’s lemma. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Alberto Trombetta rated it it was amazing Jun 03, Filip rated it it was amazing May 21, For example, in section V, articleGauss summarized his calculations of class numbers of proper primitive binary quadratic forms, and conjectured that arithmetiace had found all of them with class numbers 1, 2, and 3.
From Section IV onwards, much of the work is original.

Finally, Section VII is an analysis of cyclotomic polynomialswhich concludes by giving the criteria that determine which regular polygons are constructible i. May 21, A. Refresh and try again. In this book Gauss brought together and reconciled results in number theory obtained by mathematicians such as FermatEulerLagrangeand Legendre and added many profound and original results of his own.
Scott Gardner rated it it was amazing Nov 24, The Disquisitiones covers both elementary number theory caro parts of the area of mathematics now called algebraic number theory. Articles containing Latin-language text.
It’s worth gahss since Gauss attacked the problem of general congruences from a standpoint closely related to that taken later by DedekindGaloisand Emil Artin. Gauss started to write an eighth section on higher order congruences, but he did not complete this, and it was published separately after his death.
Sometimes referred to as the class number problemthis more general question was eventually confirmed in the specific question Gauss asked was confirmed by Landau in  for class number one.
The logical gause of the Disquisitiones theorem statement followed by prooffollowed by corollaries set a disquiistiones for later texts. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Teresa West rated it it was amazing Jun 06, No trivia or quizzes yet. Hardcoverpages.
