They cover the elementary methods, Bernoulli numbers, including the Riemann Zeta function and the Euler-MacLaurin sum formula, modular forms and Hecke's theory of modular forms, representations of numbers as sums of squares, including the singular series and Liouville's methods and elliptical modular forms, arithmetic progression, and applications such as computing sums of two to four squares, resonant cavities and diamond cutting.
Bernoulli numbers were first introduced by Jacques Bernoulli (1654-1705), in the second part of his treatise published in 1713, Ars conjectandi , at the time, Bernoulli numbers were used for writing the infinite series expansions of hyperbolic and trigonometric functions.
