Module overview

The aim of this module is to introduce students to some of the basic ideas of number theory, and to use this as a context in which to discuss the development of mathematics through examples, conjectures, theorems, proofs and applications. The module will introduce and illustrate different methods of proof in the context of elementary number theory, and will apply some basic techniques of number theory to cryptography.
