A Course In Algebraic Number Theory
by

Publisher: University of Illinois

Description:
This is a text for a basic course in algebraic number theory, written to provide reasonable coverage for a one-semester course. The text covers the general theory of factorization of ideals in Dedekind domains, detailed calculations illustrating the use of Kummer’s theorem, the factorization of prime ideals in Galois extensions, local and global fields, etc. A standard graduate course in algebra is assumed as prerequisite.
