Introduction to Algebraic Number Theory
This book originates from graduate courses given in Cambridge and London. Function fields and number fields are treated on an essentially equal footing here. It will be indispensable for all practising and would-be algebraic number theorists.
Very nice and complete introduction to Tate’s Thesis, and to the adelic approach to number theory in general.
Moreover they combine, at each stage of development, theory with explicit computations and applications, and provide motivation in terms of classical number-theoretic problems. Popular passages Page xiii – C denote the natural numbers, the integers, the rational numbers, the real numbers, the complex numbers respectively.
Here are some notes on local fields. III3 Nonramified and tamely ramified extensions. Zhang’s course on class field theory. II2 Valuations and absolute values.
It even contains what is essentially the 1-dimensional case of Arakelov Theory. RainsNeil J. TaylorMartin J. It’s a theorem, or something, that everything written by Serre is beautiful. Algebraic Number Theory A. This is where original Tate’s Thesis was published though 17 years after it was written.
VIII4 Primes in an arithmetic progression. This is the only textbook at this level which combines clean, modern algebraic techniques together with a substantial arithmetic content.
Selected pages Title Page. III2 Discriminants and differents. The treatment of class field theory, known as “Abstract Class Field Theory”, is due to Neukirch himself. It is very readable, and the last chapter motivates class field theory nicely.
Extensive, but perhaps not great for beginners. The drawback is that the local and adelic theories are nowhere to be found in this book. This book is a nice introduction to, well, number fields. III4 Ramification in Galois extensions.
The last part is a nice source algebraid some important analytic aspects of the theory, including Tate’s Thesis.
These notes also contain alyebraic references. It does not use cohomology. VIII6 Quadratic fields yet again. The basics are covered very quickly, however. Characters of Finite Abelian Groups. A very extensive and geometric approach to algebraic number theory. Sloane Limited preview – It provides a brisk, thorough treatment of the foundations of algebraic number theory, and builds on that to introduce more advanced ideas.
Algebraic Number Theory
We met every Friday 1: Fields of low degree. Cambridge University AlvebraicFeb 4, – Mathematics – pages. II4 Module theory over a Dedekind domain.
Uses local fields and adeles heavily. I lectured on these during our first two meetings. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Perhaps it’s a better resource for class field theory. Also, class field theory is not done using cohomology here. VI3 Quadratic fields revisited. Cambridge University Press Amazon. Definition of global field Rings of integers of number fields Discriminants Quadratic fields. A good introduction to the subject.
A number of special topics are included that can be treated numbwr this level but can usually only be found in research monographs or original papers, for instance: V3 Cubic and sextic fields. Throughout, the authors emphasise the systematic development of techniques for the explicit calculation of the basic invariants, such as rings of integers, class groups, and units.
