**Geometry of the Quintic**

by

**Jerry Shurman**-

**Wiley-Interscience**,

**1997**

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 to develop connections between the algebra, geometry, and analysis ...

**The Elements of the Theory of Algebraic Numbers**

by

**Legh Wilber Reid**-

**The Macmillan company**,

**1910**

It has been my endeavor in this book to lead by easy stages a reader, entirely unacquainted with the subject, to an appreciation of some of the fundamental conceptions in the general theory of algebraic numbers. Many numerical examples are given.

**Lectures On Galois Cohomology of Classical Groups**

by

**M. Kneser**-

**Tata Institute of Fundamental Research**,

**1969**

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.

**Algebraic Equations**

by

**George Ballard Mathews**-

**Cambridge University Press**,

**1907**

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.

**Lectures on Field Theory and Ramification Theory**

by

**Sudhir R. Ghorpade**-

**Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay**,

**2008**

These are notes of a series of lectures, aimed at covering the essentials of Field Theory and Ramification Theory as may be needed for local and global class field theory. Included are the two sections on cyclic extensions and abelian extensions.

**Lectures on the Algebraic Theory of Fields**

by

**K.G. Ramanathan**-

**Tata Institute of Fundamental Research**,

**1956**

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.

**Class Field Theory**

by

**J. S. Milne**,

**2008**

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.

**Fields and Galois Theory**

by

**J. S. Milne**,

**2008**

A concise treatment of Galois theory and the theory of fields, including transcendence degrees and infinite Galois extensions. Contents: Basic definitions and results; Splitting fields; The fundamental theorem of Galois theory; etc.

**Galois Theory**

by

**Miles Reid**-

**University of Warwick**,

**2004**

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.

**Generic Polynomials: Constructive Aspects of the Inverse Galois Problem**

by

**C. U. Jensen, A. Ledet, N. Yui**-

**Cambridge University Press**,

**2002**

A clearly written book, which uses exclusively algebraic language (and no cohomology), and which will be useful for every algebraist or number theorist. It is easily accessible and suitable also for first-year graduate students.
