Ring Arithmetic, Field Extensions and Applications

SINTESI

The topics covered by the book form the algebraic background of any university level mathematical instruction: arithmetic in integral domains, basics of module theory, finitely generated modules over a principal ideal domain with applications, field extensions and Galois theory with applications in algebraic equations and ruler and compass constructions. These are classic topics that form the heart of modern Algebra and open the road toward advanced areas, such as Algebraic Number Theory, Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. The text is aimed at Mathematics, Computer Science or technical universities students with a background of standard Algebra courses, as well as at readers with an interest in Algebra. Throughout the book the reader is motivated by concrete applications and exercises. Only some familiarity with general notions on algebraic structures is assumed. Topics less likely to appear in general Algebra courses are included in the Appendices.Ioan Tofan, Ph.D., is Full Professor at the Faculty of Mathematics, “A.I. Cuza” University, Iasi, Romania and has been teaching Algebra courses for 25 years. He authored 12 books and monographs and over 60 research papers.Aurelian Claudiu Volf, Ph.D., is Associate Professor at the same University, with an experience of 15 years of teaching Algebra. He is the author of 4 books and more than 20 papers and communications
