Book cover: Lectures On Galois Cohomology of Classical GroupsLectures On Galois Cohomology of Classical Groups
by - 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.
