Cheshaire rated it really friedric it Sep 15, It’s worth notice since Gauss attacked the problem of general congruences from a standpoint closely related to that taken later by DedekindGaloisand Emil Artin. They must have appeared particularly cryptic to his contemporaries; they can now be read as containing the germs of the theories of L-functions and complex multiplicationin particular.

The inquiries which this volume disquisitionex investigate pertain to that part of Mathematics which concerns itself with integers. This is the “Elements” of number theory. Harsh rated it really liked it Oct 28, Gauss totally revolutionized mathin in general and the branch of number theory in particular with this book at the tender age of From Section IV onwards, much of the work is original.

For example, in section V, griedrichGauss summarized his calculations of class numbers of proper primitive binary quadratic forms, and conjectured that he had found all of them with class numbers 1, 2, and 3.

The Disquisitiones covers both elementary number theory and parts of the area of mathematics now called algebraic number theory. He also realized the importance of the property of unique factorization assured by the fundamental theorem of arithmeticfirst studied afithmeticae Euclidwhich he restates and proves using modern tools.

Gauss’ Disquisitiones continued to exert influence in the 20th century. The logical structure of the Disquisitiones theorem statement followed by prooffollowed by corollaries set a standard for later texts.
