David Bressoud and Stan Wagon, 2000, Key College Publishing, 367 pp., hardbound, CD-ROM.
A Course in Computational Number Theory is an introduction to number theory, with emphasis on a broad range
of computational issues. Mathematica files (on CD-ROM) with all the commands and programs are included as a tool for motivation and
explanation. This book covers the theoretical structure of number
theory, but expands with the software into exploration of many
topics including factoring algorithms, primality testing, and the RSA
public-key cryptosystem. Unusual and advanced topics also
covered include check-digit schemes, continued fractions, Pell's equation, and the
