Summary 
This book gives a problemsolving 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 padic 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
