My Christmas Present from myself ( who else? )... Do you mind? ;-) - This boook symbolizes my commitment to Number Theory. Besides M373 / M381 ( 2011 ) and MST209 / M336 ( 2012 ) I will focus my self-study on Number Theory. Besides Elementary ( or Classical ) Number Theory which is covered by M381 I have a shortlist of books on Analytical-, Algebraic- and Computational Number Theory.
Oh, and I think I'll ask Caz ( who has a column on Platform ) to blog about why people think they are successful in their studies. It could lead to some interesting discussion and hopefully valuable ideas. Where do they come from: Study Results <- Progress <- Concentration <- Focus <- Discipline ??
