† There are some exceptions to this schedule occasionally. Join our channel or follow Susam on Twitter to receive schedule updates.

The primary reference book for these meetings is Introduction to Analytic Number Theory written by Tom M. Apostol. Admittedly, the book is quite expensive but you may find a relatively cheap paperback (softcover) copy on some websites.

These meetings are hosted by Susam from the #algorithms channel of Libera IRC network. These meetings are attended by some members of this channel, other related channels, as well as by some members from Hacker News.

You are welcome to join our meetings anytime. If you are concerned that the meetings may not make sense if you join when we are in the middle of a chapter, please free to talk to us about it in our channel. We can recommend the next best time to begin joining our meetings. Usually, it would be when we begin reading a new section or chapter that is fairly self-contained and does not depend a lot on material we have read previously.
