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.

Disquisitiones Arithmeticae by Carl Friedrich Gauß

Before the Disquisitiones was published, number theory consisted of a collection of isolated theorems and conjectures. Jun 19, Craig rated it it was amazing.

Most of the books is devoted to quadratic forms which are beyond my pay-grade and ability to comprehend. This was later interpreted as the determination of imaginary quadratic number fields with frierdich discriminant and class number 1,2 and 3, and extended to the case of odd discriminant. The eighth section was finally published as a treatise entitled “general investigations on congruences”, and in it Gauss discussed congruences of disquisigiones degree.

Gauss gets the reader there, but langorously, first developing individual proofs for each of the low-primes, before establishing the general case. Published April 11th by Springer first published Although few of the results in these first sections are original, Gauss was the first mathematician to bring this material together and treat it in a systematic way. However, it is very obtuse for the modern reader, and by no means suffices as a textbook for mere mortals.

This book is onsolutely wonderfull,well-written. He also realized the importance of the property of unique factorization assured by the fundamental theorem of arithmeticfirst studied by Euclidwhich he restates and proves using modern tools.

These sections are subdivided into numbered items, which sometimes state a theorem with proof, or otherwise develop a remark or thought.

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.

In section VII, articleGauss proved what can be interpreted as the first non-trivial case of the Riemann hypothesis for curves over finite fields the Hasse—Weil theorem. Gauss collected together many known results and techniques, and contributed a bunch of his own. Section VI includes two different primality tests.

Serkan Ozcim rated it it was amazing Nov 15, Articles containing Latin-language text. Many of the annotations given by Gauss are in effect announcements of further research of his own, some cal which remained unpublished.

The logical structure of the Disquisitiones theorem statement followed by prooffollowed by corollaries set a standard for later texts.
