zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).
la: chinese Find documents in a given language. ISO 639-1 language codes can also be used.

My numbers, my friends. Popular lectures on number theory. (English) Zbl 0947.11001
New York, NY: Springer. ix, 375 p. DM 79.00; öS 577.00; sFr. 72.00; £27.00; $ 39.95 (2000).

This is a book of popular lectures on number theory. The chapter titles speak for themselves: The Fibonacci numbers and the Arctic Ocean, Representation of real numbers and means of Fibonacci numbers, Prime number records, Selling primes, Euler’s famous prime generating polynomial, Gauss and the class number problem, Consecutive powers, 1093, Powerless facing powers, What kind of number is 2 2 ?, Galimatias arithmeticae.

The exposition is relaxed, with plenty of numerical examples, conjectures and other asides. Technicalities are largely avoided, so that a beginning graduate student could read and enjoy this without preparation.
