This book gives a problem-solving approach to the difficult subject of analytic number theory. It is primarily aimed at graduate students and senior undergraduates. The goal is to provide a rapid introduction to analytic methods and the ways in which they are used to study the distribution of prime numbers. The book also includes an introduction to p-adic analytic methods. It is ideal for a first course in analytic number theory. The new edition has been completely rewritten, errors have been corrected, and there is a new chapter on equidistribution. About the first edition: "...this monograph gives important results and techniques for specific topics, together with many exercises; it is not possible to describe adequately the wealth of material covered in this book." - Wolfgang Schwarz, Zentralblatt
Problems in Analytic Number Theory
"The reviewer strongly approves of the problem-based approach to learning, and recommends this book to any student of analytic number theory."

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This expanded and corrected second edition of this useful and interesting book has a new chapter on the topic of equidistribution. ... this monograph gives important results and techniques for specific topics, together with many exercises. ... I do enjoy this book ... and I imagine when I take the graduate course in the subject that it will be of a greater benefit, which is why I offered such a high rating." (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, July, 2013)
"The second edition of the book has eleven chapters ... . the book can be used both as a problem book (as its title shows) and also as a textbook (as the series in which the book is published shows). ... is ideal as a text for a first course in analytic number theory, either at the senior undergraduate or the graduate level. ... I believe that this book will be very useful for students, researchers and professors. It is well written ... ." (Mehdi Hassani, MathDL, April, 2008)
