We will cover large parts of A Friendly Introduction to Number Theory, Joseph H. Silverman, 4th ed. The book is not required, since all notes and exercises will be hosted here. A previous edition is fine if you don't want to pay full price, though the section numbers in the syllabus will no longer correspond.
