Ezra Brown grew up in New Orleans and has degrees from Rice University and Louisiana State University. Since 1969 he has been in the Mathematics Department at Virginia Tech, where he is currently Alumni Distinguished Professor. He is the author of some sixty papers, mostly in number theory and discrete mathematics. He received the Outstanding Teacher Award from the MD/DC/VA Section of the MAA, and he currently serves as that section's governor. He received the Carl Allendoerfer Award (2003) and three George Polya Awards (2000, 2001, 2006) from the MAA for expository writing.
You are probably wondering, 'What exactly are biscuits of number theory?' In this book, the editors have selected easily digested bite-sized articles and notes which aid an understanding of number theory. This is a collection of articles chosen for being exceptionally well written and capable of being appreciated by anyone who has taken (or is taking) a first course in number theory. The list of authors is outstanding, and the chapters cover arithmetic, primes, irrationality, sums of squares and polygonal numbers, Fibonacci numbers, number theoretic functions and elliptic curves, cubes, and Fermat's last theorem. As with any anthology, you don't have to read the chapters in order, you can dive in anywhere, making this book ideal for use as a textbook supplement for a number theory course.
