This book is an introduction to algebraic number theory, meaning the study of arithmetic in finite extensions of the rational number field Q. Originating in the work of Gauss, the foundations of modern algebraic number theory are due to Dirichlet, Dedekind, Kronecker, Kummer, and others.5/5(1). This book is a translation of my book Suron Josetsu (An Introduction to Number Theory), Second Edition, published by Shokabo, Tokyo, in The translation is faithful to the original globally but, taking advantage of my being the translator of my own book, I felt completely free to reform or deform the original locally everywhere.

When I sent T. Tamagawa a copy of the First Edition of the. The mathematical material covered includes the basics of number theory (including unique factorization, congruences, the distribution of primes, and quadratic reciprocity) and of abstract algebra (including groups, rings, ﬁelds, and vector spaces).
This book is based on notes I created for a one-semester undergraduate course on Algebraic Number Theory, which I taught at Harvard during Spring and Spring The textbook for the ﬁrst course was chapter 1 of Swinnerton-Dyer’s book [SD01]. He wrote a very inﬂuential book on algebraic number theory in , which gave the ﬁrst systematic account of the theory. Some of his famous problems were on number theory, and have also been inﬂuential. TAKAGI (–). He proved the fundamental theorems of abelian class ﬁeld theory, as conjectured by Weber and Hilbert. NOETHER. An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers by G.H. Hardy and E. M. Wright is found on the reading list of virtually all elementary number theory courses and is widely regarded as the primary and classic text in elementary number theory. Developed under the guidance of D.R. Heath-Brown this Sixth Edition of An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers has been extensively revised and updated to Reviews: 1. If you want to learn class field theory (which you should at some point, after you have read an introductory book on algebraic number theory), then "Algebraic Number Theory" edited by Cassels and Fröhlich is a classic that doesn't get old. It has been recently reprinted by the LMS.
An Introductory Course in Elementary Number Theory The notes contain a useful introduction to important topics that need to be addressed in a course in number theory. Introduction "The present book has as its aim to resolve a discrepancy in the textbook literature and to provide a comprehensive introduction to algebraic number theory which is largely based on the modern, unifying conception of (one-dimensional) arithmetic algebraic geometry. A concise introduction to the theory of numbers by Alan Baker ( Fields medalist) covers a lot of ground in less than pages, and does so in a fluid way that never feels rushed. I love this little book. Algebraic number theory involves using techniques from (mostly commutative) algebra and nite group theory to gain a deeper understanding of the arithmetic of number elds and related objects (e.g., functions elds, elliptic curves, etc.). The main objects that we study in this book are number .
