In a clever and logical system that builds from previous knowledge, this covers such core topics as divisibility and primes, congruences, cryptography, and quadratic residues, then addresses arithmetic functions, large primes, continued fractions, and diophantine equations, closing with advanced topics such as analytic number theory, elliptic curves, and the relationship between logic and number theory.
