SUMMARY:Visual Gems of Number Theory
DESCRIPTION:\n Number theory—a branch of mathematics devoted to the study of the integers—dates back to the time of the ancient Greeks. A course in number theory is often a part of an undergraduate mathematics major.\n\n\n While preparing this talk\, I looked through several number theory texts. I was struck by how few illustrations most of them have. An integer can represent many things—the cardinality of a set\, the length of a line segment\, the area of a region\, the volume of a solid\, etc. So the texts should have more pictures. In this talk I'll try to remedy that\, and present some of my favorite pictures for use in studying number theory\, what I call visual gems of number theory.\n\n\n No prior experience with number theory is required.\n\n\n \;\n\n\n Professor Nelsen has written several books that feature ways to illustrate mathematical concepts with pictures. See his website.\n\n\n http://legacy.lclark.edu/~mathsci/nelsen.html\n
