This book is an introduction to the multiplicative theory of prime numbers. It is divided roughly into two parts. The first part introduces the classical methods based on analytic properties of Dirichlet series, leading to the fundamental results about the prime number theory in arithmetic progressions. The second part presents methods in the forefront of current research to prove a theorem of Duke, Friedlander and Iwaniec on equidistribution of roots of a quadratic polynomial modulo primes. This result is discussed throughout the book. The two main points are a sieve result not restricted to "almost primes", and the use of results coming from the spectral theory of automorphic forms.
