Post by S_r » Thu Sep 07, 2017 8:49 am

Which books would you prefer if i want to learn about number theory, factoring, different methods of finding primes and a great book on maths?

Not number theory but if you want a great book, you can start with 'Analytic Combinatorics' by Sedgwick and Flajolet. It is a very nice read on Combinatorics and will also help in solving numerous PE problems directly or using the ideas on the book.

It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment.

Googling on "books numbertheory" gave this discussion:
https://math.stackexchange.com/question ... ber-theory
Loads of people suggest a book there. You can find your book there, I suppose.

You might like "Concrete Mathematics" By Knuth and Patashnik, or "An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers" by Niven, Zuckerman, and Montgomery. Both are pretty cheap, especially for textbooks. I believe my copy of "An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers" was 15 USD.
