MATH4NT Analytic Number Theory
Number theory, which is probably the oldest branch of mathematics, is concerned with properties of integers. Of particular interest are prime numbers. Analytic number theory studies these using methods from analysis. This module gives a basic introduction with a focus on arithmetic functions, asymptotic formulae and the distribution of prime numbers.

Office hours: by arrangement (or just pop in if I am in my office).
There are three marked assignments and a final exam.
Your final mark F in the paper will be calculated according to this formula:
F = 0.6E + 0.4A
- E is the Exam mark
- A is the Assignments mark
and all quantities are expressed as percentages.
