ALGEBRAIC NUMBER THEORY
Algebraic preliminaries: Algebraic field extensions: Normal, separable and Galois extensions. Euclidean rings, principal ideal domains and factorial rings. Quadratic number fields. Cyclotomic number fields. Algebraic integers: Integral extensions: Algebraic number fields and algebraic integers. Norms and traces. Resultants and discriminants. Integral bases. Class numbers:Lattices and Minkowski theory. Finiteness of class number. Dirichlet’s unit theorem. Ramification Theory: Discriminants.
