This volume is a translation of Dirichlet's ""Vorlesungen uber Zahlentheorie"" which includes nine supplements by Dedekind and an introduction by John Stillwell, who translated the volume. ""Lectures on Number Theory"" is the first of its kind on the subject matter. It covers most of the topics that are standard in a modern first course on number theory, but also includes Dirichlet's famous results on class numbers and primes in arithmetic progressions. The book is suitable as a textbook, yet it also offers a fascinating historical perspective that links Gauss with modern number theory. The legendary story is told how Dirichlet kept a copy of Gauss' ""Disquisitiones Arithmeticae"" with him at all times and how Dirichlet strove to clarify and simplify Gauss' results.Dedekind's footnotes document what material Dirichlet took from Gauss, allowing insight into how Dirichlet transformed the ideas into essentially modern form. Also shown is how Gauss built on a long tradition in number theory - going back to Diophantus - and how it set the agenda for Dirichlet's work. This important book combines historical perspective with transcendent mathematical insight. The material is still fresh and presented in a very readable fashion. This volume is one of an informal sequence of works within the ""History of Mathematics"" series. Volumes in this subset, 'Sources', are classical mathematical works that served as cornerstones for modern mathematical thought. (For another historical translation by Professor Stillwell, see ""Sources of Hyperbolic Geometry, Volume 10"" in the ""History of Mathematics"" series.)
