MATH 4070.03: Topics in Number Theory.
The course begins with a detailed discussion of quadratic reciprocity. The main topics from analytic number theory will be arithmetic functions and Dirichlet L-series, resulting in a proof of Dirichlet's theorem on primes in arithmetic progressions. Fundamental properties of algebraic number fields will be discussed, emphasizing quadratic and cyclotomic fields.
