I have completed calculus courses but I have dropped out real analysis. However, I have basic knowledge of analysis and algebra to some extent like I know about group theory and about basic real analysis. I have also completed differential equations and basic linear algebra course.
Is it possible for me to start number theory as a self study at home without much difficulty. If yes, how? If no, Why?
I basically am aiming to read Ramanujan's Notebooks successfully. Thanks
