This handbook covers a range of topics from number theory, special attention being given to estimates and inequalities. As a rule, the most important results are presented, together with their refinements, extensions or generalizations. These may be applied to other aspects of number theory, or to a wide range of mathematical disciplines. Cross-references provide new insight into fundamental research. This should be a useful reference work for specialists in number theory and other mathematicians who need access to some of these results in their own fields of research.
