Introductions to number theory

  1. Nov 2, 2014 #1
    I am looking for a accesable introduction to the field of number theory that leads up to primes eulers proof of infinite primes, goldbach proof of inifinite primes and their deriviations(the deriviations are the most important and should be clear if possible) and so on. I have a knowledge of caculus1-3(integrals,differentials,sums and convergency tests...), so if I am lacking essential knowledge please mention this.

    Thanks for any clarifications.

    If you google "number theory pdf" you'll find more texts introducing you to number theory than you could imagine. I can't vouch for any of them, but they will generally assume only a basic mathematical knowledge and will be very much from the ground up.

    Thanks PeroK the saylor PDF was helpfull.

    I think I should specify. A introduction on primes in numbertheory would be more acurate. Thanks for any helpfull suggestions.
