Number Theory: An Approach through History from Hammurapi to Legendre
The book reviews over three millennia of research on numbers but the key focus is on mathematicians from the 17th-century to the 19th, in particular, on four mathematicians Fermat, Euler, Lagrange and Legendre, whose work paved the way for modern number theory. It does not discuss many of the developments in the field after the work of Gauss in Disquisitiones Arithmeticae.
