**A Course In Algebraic Number Theory**

by Robert B. Ash

**Publisher**: University of Illinois 2003

**Description**:

This is a text for a basic course in algebraic number theory, written to provide reasonable coverage for a one-semester course. The text covers the general theory of factorization of ideals in Dedekind domains, detailed calculations illustrating the use of Kummerâ€™s theorem, the factorization of prime ideals in Galois extensions, local and global fields, etc. A standard graduate course in algebra is assumed as prerequisite.
