Carl Friedrich Gauss’s textbook, Disquisitiones arithmeticaepublished in Latinremains to this day a true masterpiece of mathematical examination. Gauss also states, “When confronting many difficult problems, derivations have been suppressed for the sake of brevity when readers refer to this work.

The most exciting result in the book is probably the arithmetlcae of quadratic reciprocity.

Disquisitiones Arithmeticae | book by Gauss |

In this book Gauss brought together and reconciled results in number theory obtained by mathematicians such as FermatEulerLagrangeand Legendre and added many profound and original results of his own. They disquisitionnes have appeared particularly cryptic to his contemporaries; they can now be read as containing the germs of the theories of L-functions and complex multiplication gauuss, in particular.


Before the Disquisitiones was published, number theory consisted of a collection of isolated theorems and conjectures. Most of the books is devoted to quadratic forms which are beyond my pay-grade and ability to comprehend.

It is notable for having a revolutionary impact on the field of number theory as it not only turned the field truly rigorous and systematic but also paved the path for modern number theory. Articles containing Latin-language text.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Cheshaire rated it really liked it Sep 15, Gauss collected together many known results and techniques, and contributed a bunch of his own. Robin rated it it was amazing Apr 08, However, it is very obtuse for the modern reader, and fredrich no means suffices as a textbook for mere mortals.

Although few of the results in these first sections are original, Gauss was the first mathematician to bring this material together and treat it in a systematic way. In his Preface to the DisquisitionesGauss describes the scope of the book as follows:. Want to Read saving…. This was later interpreted as the determination of imaginary quadratic number fields with even discriminant and class number 1,2 and 3, and extended to the case of odd discriminant.

Section VI includes two different primality tests. Gauds logical structure of the Disquisitiones theorem statement followed by prooffollowed by corollaries set a standard for later texts.
