by Miles Reid - University of Warwick
The author discusses the problem of solutions of polynomial equations both in explicit terms and in terms of abstract algebraic structures. The course demonstrates the tools of abstract algebra as applied to a meaningful problem.
by C. U. Jensen, A. Ledet, N. Yui - Cambridge University Press
A clearly written book, which uses exclusively algebraic language (and no cohomology), and which will be useful for every algebraist or number theorist. It is easily accessible and suitable also for first-year graduate students.
by J. S. Milne
A concise treatment of Galois theory and the theory of fields, including transcendence degrees and infinite Galois extensions. Contents: Basic definitions and results; Splitting fields; The fundamental theorem of Galois theory; etc.
by George Ballard Mathews - Cambridge University Press
This book is intended to give an account of the theory of equations according to the ideas of Galois. This method analyzes, so far as exact algebraical processes permit, the set of roots possessed by any given numerical equation.
