Undergraduates interested in learning Number Theory can take MATH 342 Elementary Number Theory, which serves as a general introduction with minimal prerequisites. However, because research in Number Theory requires techniques from many areas, we encourage students interested in continuing in this area to take a broad spectrum of courses from our curriculum. For further guidance, please contact the Undergraduate Advisor.
Here is a sample of undergraduate research in Number Theory that has been done recently.
|Richard Lei||A Sieving Approach to S-Unit Equations||NSERC USRA Report||2011|
|Robert Shih||Plotting Plane Algebraic Curves Containing Singularities in Sage||NSERC USRA Report||2010|
|Karin Arikushi||Elliptic Curves with isomorphic 3-torsion over Q||NSERC USRA Report||2005|
