The Little Book of Big Primes Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

P. Ribenboim

The Little Book of Big Primes

"Everyone has at one time or another taken an interest, however fleeting, in prime numbers . . . Ribenboim, however, is clearly a prime nut, and this excellent, good-humored book is written for other (actually or potentially) incurable aficionados . . . it is a masterly presentation . . . This genially reader-friendly tour de force, by a scientist whit an encyclopedic and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject, is a wholly admirable addition to anyones bookshelf."AMERICAN SCIENTIST

"The book presents a wealth of material and references on fundamental theorems, challenging open problems, and the most recent computational records in a language without secrets." (Zentralblatt fr Didaktik und Mathematik, November, 2004)

"This book is the substantially expanded and updated second edition of the 1991 Little book of big primes. The authors thorough knowledge of and passion for primes comes through clearly. Most of the book is accessible even to interested amateurs or undergraduate students . At the same time, a specialist can also find it useful to have so many results, open problems and references collected together." (Gbor Megyesi, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 72, 2006)
