Abstract: 1. Introduction. The elementary portions of the theory of integral representation of numbers or forms by quadratic forms will be somewhat simplified and generalized in this article. This indicates certain directions in which new applications can be made. The applications made here will be largely to the representation of numbers or binary quadratic forms by ternary quadratic forms. Particularly, we shall obtain the correct estimate (Theorem 10) needed to fill a lacuna in certain work of U. V. Linnik [1] on the…
