The addictive delights of prime numbers made more accessible,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gamma: Exploring Euler's Constant (Princeton Science Library) (Paperback)
Although I say "accessible" , be warned this is a book for someone with say single subject A level maths, and one needs a pen & paper to work through it: the book is not a popularization, but a serious attempt to explain number theory , Gamma, and in the end the Riemann Hypothesis, to a wider audience.
The book successfully answers the question "just what is it about the the complex zeros of the Riemann zeta function that makes them relevant for the distribution of prime numbers and the Prime Number Theorem?"
Hence in some sense this book could be regarded as a follow on to John Derbyshire's book "Prime obsession".
