Abstract

The integers are the simplest objects in mathematics but, as history shows, their secrets are deeply hidden. A vast range of mathematical disciplines— such as geometry, algebra, and analysis—has been called upon to clarify the apparently simple concept of integer. In particular, a broader concept of number itself seems to be useful.
