"The book under review is an excellent book on the interesting subject of quadratic Diophantine equations. It is well written, well organized, and contains a wealth of material that one does not expect to find in a book of its size, with full proofs of scores of theorems. ... This reviewer does not know any book that covers similar material, and sees it as a very valuable and much needed addition to the literature on number theory." (Mowaffaq Hajja, zbMATH 1376.11001, 2018)"Diophantine analysis aims to solve equations (usually polynomial) in integers (or rationals). ... this work settles the classical foundation, then develops state-of-the-art issues, especially concerning computation. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 53 (9), May, 2016)"The primary focus of this book under review is the integer solutions of Pell equations, their generalisations and related diophantine equations, along with applications of these equations. ... The book is suitable for readers from the level of a motivated undergraduate upwards, who are interested in the classical techniques for solving such equations. ... There is also an extensive bibliography." (Paul M. Voutier, Mathematical Reviews, March, 2016)
