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
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.
