These lecture notes on Field theory are aimed at providing the beginner with an introduction to algebraic extensions, algebraic function fields, formally real fields and valuated fields. We assume a familiarity with group theory and vector spaces.
by Miles Reid - University of Warwick
The author discusses 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 as applied to a meaningful problem.

Class field theory describes the abelian extensions of a local or global field in terms of the arithmetic of the field itself. These notes contain an exposition of abelian class field theory using the algebraic/cohomological approach.
