Publisher's Summary:
This is the English translation of the original Japanese book. In this volume, 'Fermat's Dream', core theories in modern number theory are introduced. Developments are given in elliptic curves, $p$-adic numbers, the $\zeta$-function, and the number fields. This work presents an elegant perspective on the wonder of numbers. Number Theory 2 on class field theory, and Number Theory 3 on Iwasawa theory and the theory of modular forms, are forthcoming in the series. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
