This informative and exhaustive study gives a problem-solving approach to the difficult subject of analytic number theory. It is primarily aimed at graduate students and senior undergraduates. The goal is to provide a rapid introduction to analytic methods and the ways in which they are used to study the distribution of prime numbers. The book also includes an introduction to p-adic analytic methods. It is ideal for a first course in analytic number theory. The new edition has been completely rewritten, errors have been corrected, and there is a new chapter on the arithmetic progression of primes.

Editorial Reviews

M.R. MurtyProblems in Analytic Number Theory"The reviewer strongly approves of the problem-based approach to learning, and recommends this book to any student of analytic number theory."-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWSFrom the reviews of the second edition:"The second edition of the book has eleven chapters . . the book can be used both as a problem book (as its title shows) and also as a textbook (as the series in which the book is published shows). . is ideal as a text for a first course in analytic number theory, either at the senior undergraduate or the graduate level. . I believe that this book will be very useful for students, researchers and professors. It is well written . ." (Mehdi Hassani, MathDL, April, 2008)
