This book contains proceedings presented at the fourth Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) conference held at Dalhousie University in July 1994. The invited speakers focused on analytic, algebraic, and computational number theory. The contributed talks represented a wide variety of areas in number theory.

Paulo Ribenboim gave an hour-long talk on Fermat's last theorem--which was wide open at the time of the conference. His lecture was entitled Fermat's Last Theorem, Before June 23, 1993. This lecture was open to the public and attracted a large audience from outside the conference.

This book contains 34 written versions of the presentations. All papers were refereed.

Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price.
