Arithmetic of Quadratic Forms (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)

This book provides an introduction to quadratic forms, building from basics to the most recent results. Professor Kitaoka is well known for his work in this area, and in this book he covers many aspects of the subject, including lattice theory, Siegel's formula, and some results involving tensor products of positive definite quadratic forms. The reader should have a knowledge of algebraic number fields, making this book ideal for graduate students and researchers wishing for an insight into quadratic forms.
