From the Author

A Framework for Number Theoretic Investigations
It was my goal in writing this book to provide individuals with a basic set of tools for investigating a wide range of practical number theoretic problems. My approach is threefold: I describe the problem in a theoretic aspect, develop a program, and present applications. I devoted most of my efforts to the last two points, believing that the theory is well known and can be further researched from the references provided.

Regardless of whether you are a professional programmer, mathematician, or simply enjoy this sort of intellectual recreation, I hope you will find my book serves you well.
