Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) The Fifth Edition of one of the standard works on number theory, written by internationally-recognized mathematicians. Chapters are relatively self-contained for greater flexibility. New features include expanded treatment of the binomial theorem, techniques of numerical calculation and a section on public key cryptography. Contains an outstanding set of problems

75 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Self-study guide on the classification of numbers and the standards used to determine whether a number is rational or irrational
Irrational numbers by Ivan Niven( Book )

49 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monograph, Ivan Niven, provides a masterful exposition of some central results on irrational, transcendental, and normal numbers. He gives a complete treatment by elementary methods of the irrationality of the exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions with rational arguments. The approximation of irrational numbers by rationals, up to such results as the best possible approximation of Hurwitz, is also given with elementary techniques. The last third of the monograph treats normal and transcendental numbers, including the transcendence of p and its generalization in the Lindermann theorem, and the Gelfond-Schneider theorem. Most of the material in the first two-thirds of the book presupposes only calculus and beginning number theory. The book is almost wholly self-contained. The results needed from analysis and algebra are central, and well-known theorems, and complete references to standard works are given to help the beginner. The chapters are for the most part independent. There is a set of notes at the end of each chapter citing the main sources used by the author, and suggesting further readings
Mathematics of choice : or, How to count without counting by Ivan Niven( Book )

41 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

17 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diophantine approximations by Ivan Niven( Book )

28 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This self-contained treatment originated as a series of lectures delivered to the Mathematical Association of America. It covers basic results on homogeneous approximation of real numbers; the analogue for complex numbers; basic results for nonhomogeneous approximation in the real case; the analogue for complex numbers; and fundamental properties of the multiples of an irrational number, for both the fractional and integral parts. The author refrains from the use of continuous fractions and includes basic results in the complex case, a feature often neglected in favor of the real number discussion. Each chapter concludes with a bibliographic account of closely related work; these sections also contain the sources from which the proofs are drawn
