Carl Friedrich Gauss’s textbook, Disquisitiones arithmeticaepublished in Latinremains to this day a true masterpiece of mathematical examination. While recognising the primary importance of logical proof, Gauss also illustrates many theorems with numerical examples.
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. It’s worth notice since Gauss attacked the problem of general congruences from a standpoint closely related to that taken later by DedekindGaloisand Emil Artin.
The most exciting result in the book is probably the law of quadratic reciprocity. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Lee rated it it was amazing Mar 19, Gauss gets the reader there, but langorously, first developing individual proofs for each of the low-primes, before establishing the general case.

Giancarlo rated it really liked it Feb 23, Theodore Chronis rated it it was amazing May 03, Section IV itself develops a proof of quadratic reciprocity ; Section V, which takes up over half of the book, is a comprehensive analysis of binary and ternary quadratic forms.
The inquiries which this volume will investigate pertain to that part of Mathematics which concerns itself with integers. Scott Gardner rated it it was amazing Nov 24, These sections are subdivided into numbered items, which sometimes state a theorem with proof, or otherwise develop a remark or thought. Carl Friedrich Gauss, tr. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The eighth section was finally published as a treatise entitled “general investigations on congruences”, and in it Gauss discussed congruences of arbitrary degree.

Filip rated it it was amazing May 21, Ayman Reddah rated it really liked it Feb 11, Sections I to III are essentially a review of previous results, including Fermat’s little theoremWilson’s theorem and the existence of primitive roots. Bruno Oliveira rated it liked it Nov 25, Gauss collected together many known results and techniques, and contributed a bunch of his own.

For example, in section V, articleGauss summarized his calculations of class numbers of proper primitive binary quadratic forms, and conjectured that he had found all of them with class numbers 1, 2, and 3. Many of the annotations given by Gauss are in effect announcements of further research of his own, some of which remained unpublished.
