I want to read particularly about diophantine Analysis and Elementary Number Theory from a novice level.

The books which I found on net:

  1. A Guide to Elementary Number Theory by Underwood Dudley

  2. Diophantine Analysis by Robert Daniel Carmichael

  3. Diophantine Analysis by Jorn Steuding

Help me with good suggestions as I think M.SE. has people from novice to professional users.


P.S. I have searched M.SE. for this type of question, I didn't find any. If you know someone, you may give the link.

Perhaps you could give some detail about the type of problems you find interesting. I am not entirely sure what to expect from the title Diophantine Analysis. – Will Jagy Mar 31 '13 at 5:20

A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory by Ireland and Rosen is a great book. Definitely one of the best. As for Diophantine analysis, well that can mean a few things. Lang has a good book on Diophantine approximations. I suspect that going through a book like Ireland and Rosen's will give you a better idea of what it is, specifically, that you're looking for

thanks :). .that was helpful – Manoj Pandey May 4 '13 at 8:09

Concerning Diophantine analysis I learned much in a nice little book of Edward Burger : 'Exploring the Number Jungle'.

Concerning Number Theory from a novice level the venerable Hardy & Wright's 'Introduction to Number Theory' had to be cited.
