Description:
This book describes a constructive approach to the Inverse Galois problem. The main theme is an exposition of a family of "generic" polynomials for certain finite groups, which give all Galois extensions having the required group as their Galois group. The existence of such generic polynomials is discussed, and where they do exist, a detailed treatment of their construction is given. The book also introduces the notion of "generic dimension" to address the problem of the smallest number of parameters required by a generic polynomial.

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.

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.
