**Galois Theory**

by Christopher Cooper

**Publisher**: Macquarie University 2009**Number of pages**: 86

**Description**:

This text follows the usual path through to Galois groups, but just for subfields of the complex numbers. It takes as its goal the insolubility of polynomials by radicals. This is as far as we normally reach, though there is an additional chapter that gives an algebraic proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, using Sylow theory.

**Lectures 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.
