Proceedings of the First International Conference on Smarandache Type Notions in Number Theory, edited by C. Dumitrescu and V. Seleacu, American Research Press, Lupton, Arizona, 1997. 206 pp., $39.95 (paper). ISBN 1879585588.
The conference referenced in the title took place from August 21-24, 1997 in Craiova, Romania. The papers in this collection were selected by the members of the conference organizing committee and an international collection of mathematicians were invited to speak at the conference.
While the content of the papers all fall within the umbrella of Smarandache notions that is a very broad tent. Basically, Smarandache notions are any field that Florentin Smarandache wrote about, which is most of mathematics. Therefore, many different areas within number theory are examined in these papers, from the construction of magic squares to the functions of number theory to the properties of unusual number sequences.
None of the papers in this collection involve highly complex mathematical topics, all are accessible to the person with some experience in a college mathematics program.
