Carl Friedrich Gauss, tr. Gesi Belishta rated it it was amazing Jan 08, There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Bruno Oliveira rated it liked it Nov 25, Preston rated it really liked it May 16, It’s worth notice since Gauss attacked the problem of general congruences from a standpoint closely related to that taken later by DedekindGaloisand Emil Artin.

Sections I to III are essentially a review of previous results, including Fermat’s little theoremWilson’s theorem and the existence of primitive roots.

Section IV itself develops a proof of quadratic reciprocity ; Section V, which takes up over half of the book, is a comprehensive analysis of binary and ternary quadratic forms. His own title for his subject was Higher Arithmetic.


Gauss gets the reader there, but langorously, first developing individual proofs for each of the low-primes, before e Gauss totally revolutionized mathin in general and the branch of number theory in particular with this book at the tender age of The most exciting result in the book is probably the law of quadratic reciprocity. Theodore Chronis rated it it was amazing May 03, Scott Gardner rated it it was amazing Nov 24, To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

The treatise paved the way for the theory of function fields over a finite field of constants. Want to Read saving….

I give it a 5 star rating for it’s historical significance. Serkan Ozcim rated it it was amazing Nov 15, These sections are subdivided into numbered items, which sometimes state a theorem with proof, or otherwise develop a remark or thought. Section VI includes two different primality tests. Gauss totally revolutionized mathin in general and the branch of number theory in particular with this book at the tender age of However, Gauss did not explicitly recognize the concept of a groupwhich is central to modern algebraso he did not use this term.

In section VII, articleGauss proved what can be interpreted as the first non-trivial case of the Riemann hypothesis for curves over finite fields the Hasse—Weil theorem.

This was later interpreted as the determination of imaginary quadratic number fields with even discriminant and class number 1,2 and 3, and extended to the case of odd discriminant. Gauss brought the work of his predecessors together with his own original work into a systematic framework, filled in gaps, corrected unsound proofs, and extended the subject in numerous ways.

Disquisitiones Arithmeticae – Wikipedia

For cral, in section V, articleGauss summarized his calculations of class numbers of proper primitive binary quadratic forms, and conjectured that he had found all of them with class numbers 1, 2, and 3.

Before the Disquisitiones was published, number theory consisted of a collection of isolated theorems and conjectures. Views Read Edit View history.

Disquisitiones Arithmeticae by Carl Friedrich Gauß

Johannes Bayer rated it it was amazing Mar 26, Giancarlo rated it really liked it Feb 23, It is notable for having a revolutionary impact on the field of number theory as it not only turned the field truly rigorous and systematic but also paved the path for modern number theory. In this book Gauss brought together and reconciled results in number theory obtained by mathematicians such as FermatEulerLagrangeand Legendre and added many profound and original results of his own.

Gauss started to write an eighth section on higher order congruences, but he did not complete this, and it was published separately after his death.
