## Number Theory

**Number theory** (or **arithmetic**) is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers. Number theorists study prime numbers as well as the properties of objects made out of integers (e.g., rational numbers) or defined as generalizations of the integers (e.g., algebraic integers).

### Famous quotes containing the words theory and/or number:

“It makes no sense to say what the objects of a *theory* are,

beyond saying how to interpret or reinterpret that *theory* in another.”

—Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

“At thirty years a woman asks her lover to give her back the esteem she has forfeited for his sake; she lives only for him, her thoughts are full of his future, he must have a great career, she bids him make it glorious; she can obey, entreat, command, humble herself, or rise in pride; times without *number* she brings comfort when a young girl can only make moan.”

—Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)
