AbstractThis is a student seminar covering a range of topics in elementary number theory.
ObjectiveThe purpose of this seminar is to introduce a diversified range of topics in elementary number theory, each of which has spurred, and still motivates, a great deal of research in the area. This will hopefully encourage a deeper understanding of the subject and serve as a basis for more advanced courses.
