Geometry of the Quintic
by Jerry Shurman
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience 1997
Number of pages: 208
The text demonstrates the use of general concepts by applying theorems from various areas in the context of one problem -- solving the quintic. This book helps students at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate levels to develop connections between the algebra, geometry, and analysis that they know, and to better appreciate the totality of what they have learned.

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.

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.

This book is intended to give an account of the theory of equations according to the ideas of Galois. This method analyzes, so far as exact algebraical processes permit, the set of roots possessed by any given numerical equation.

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.
