MAS4002: Algebraic Number Theory

This is the home page for the Algebraic Number Theory course. At present it is still under construction. Eventually it will contain copies of course handouts, commentaries on some of my more challenging problems, and useful links. Most files are in dvi format.

The course will be closely based on the following book:

Ian Stewart and David Tall, Algebraic Number Theory, Chapman and Hall.

Alas the paperback is out of print (and the hardback is overpriced) but the following alternative is very cheap (but a bit old-fashioned):

Harry Pollard and Harold G. Diamond, The Theory of Algebraic Numbers, Dover.
