This is the Prime Pages' interface to our BibTeX database.  Rather than being an exhaustive database, it just lists the references we cite on these pages.  Please let me know of any errors you notice.

This is a collection of the references used by the local Prime Pages (plus a few related entries).  It is not an attempt at a complete bibliography for primes.

If you are just beginning to read books on number theory and prime numbers, then I would suggest you start with a good elementary number theory text, followed by Ribenboim95.  For those with a solid mathematical background there is the excellent text on the state of the art by Crandall and Pomerance CP2001.  If you wish a start at programming some of these algorithms see Riesel94 (and perhaps Bressoud89 and Knuth97).  If you have a solid foundation in number theory, and are looking for theoretical information on algorithms (with an excellent summary of recent research), see the impressive text BS96.  For a more historical prospective, consider Williams98 These last two texts, as well as those by Ribenboim and Riesel (above) have extensive reference lists. 

Please send us any corrections and suggested additions (hopefully in BibTeX format).
