Algebraic number theory by
Richard A Mollin(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A followup to Dr. Mollin's popular Fundamental Number Theory with Applications, Algebraic Number Theory provides a global approach to the subject, carefully leading the reader through algebraic numbers, the arithmetic of number fields, ideal theory, ideal decomposition in extension fields, and reciprocity laws. In each chapter, the author includes a section on a cryptographic application of the ideas presented, effectively demonstrating the pragmatic side of theory." "Algebraic Number Theory provides a comprehensible yet thorough treatment of the material. Written with the prerequisite background provided in appendices so that anyone can work through the book, this oneofakind text brings the subject matter to life with historical background and realworld practicality."Jacket

Mathematics without borders : a history of the International Mathematical Union by
Olli Lehto(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The history of international mathematical cooperation over the last hundred years  from the first international congress in 1897 to plans for the World Mathematical Year 2000  is a surprisingly compelling story. For reflected in the history of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) is all the strife among world powers, as well as aspirations for cooperation among nations in an increasingly interdependent world. As early as the 1920s, the IMU embraced principles of political neutrality, inviting every national mathematical organisation to join, and this principle of nondiscrimination, while sometimes sorely tried, has held the IMU in good stead. A number of issues  the Cold War, the conflict between the Peoples Republic of China and Taiwan, a divided Germany, problems in the emerging nations of Africa  at times led to attempts to influence the IMU Executive Committee in its decisions regarding membership, location of international congresses, committee assignments, handling of protests, and awarding the coveted Fields Medals. Yet throughout, the IMU has sponsored international congresses around the world, and Professor Lehtos gripping story is one of individuals, among them many of the great mathematicians of our century, united in the common purpose of advancing their science, told against the backdrop of world events
