An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers

HARDY, G.H. / WRIGHT, E.M.

HARDY, G.H. An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers

Oxford University Press, 1938.

First edition. Original blue cloth stamped in gilt in buff dustwrapper printed in blue. A fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, somewhat tanned to the spine with wear to the spine ends and corners, but principally complete.

G.H. Hardy was the foremost number theorist of his age and did much to promote and add necessary rigour to the study of pure mathematics in Britain at the beginning of the twentieth century. This work is the culmination of some thirty years of teaching and has since become a classic and highly influential work in elementary number theory.
Hardy famously revelled in pure mathematics' lack of utility. "No discovery of mine has made, or is likely to make, directly or indirectly, for good or ill, the least difference to the amenity of the world." This has proved to be profoundly untrue: the development of number theory is central to cryptography upon which the security internet communication and therefore of most of the world's data relies.
Uncommon in its dustwrapper.
