Galois Theory
by Miles Reid

Publisher: University of Warwick 2004
Number of pages: 89

The course will discuss the problem of solutions of polynomial equations both in explicit terms and in terms of abstract algebraic structures. The course demonstrates the tools of abstract algebra (linear algebra, group theory, rings and ideals) as applied to a meaningful problem.

Lectures On Galois Cohomology of Classical GroupsLectures On Galois Cohomology of Classical Groups
by M. Kneser - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
The main result is the Hasse principle for the one-dimensional Galois cohomology of simply connected classical groups over number fields. For most groups, this result is closely related to other types of Hasse principle.
Geometry of the QuinticGeometry of the Quintic
