Prime-Detecting Sieves. First Edition

November 23, 2007

The book seeks to describe the rapid development that has taken place in recent decades in the use of sieve methods able to detect prime numbers. Prime-Detecting Sieves brings together several different types of problems that have been tackled with modern sieve methods and discusses the ideas that are common to all of them.

Who is it for? Prime-Detecting Sieves is an advanced mathematical text aimed firmly at established practitioners. It will appeal principally to those who are interested in number theory.

Presentation: Clearly written and well presented in a style typical of an advanced pure maths text.

Would you recommend it? Number theorists will find this text useful.
