Here, the idea of class field theory, a highlight in algebraic number theory, is first described with many concrete examples. A detailed account of proofs is thoroughly exposited in the final chapter. The authors also explain the localglobal method in number theory, including the use of ideles and adeles. Basic properties of zeta and \(L\)functions are established and used to prove the prime number theorem and the Dirichlet theorem on prime numbers in arithmetic progressions. With this book, the reader can enjoy the beauty of numbers and obtain fundamental knowledge of modern number theory. The translation of the first volume was published as Number Theory 1: Fermat's Dream, Translations of Mathematical Monographs (Iwanami Series in Modern Mathematics), vol. 186, American Mathematical Society, 2000. Request an examination or desk copy. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory. Reviews "The authors' presentation is very readerfriendly. ...Their style of writing is lively and inspiring. ...The book can warmly be recommended to anyone interested in reading a modern exposition of class field theory."
