I Tried The Springer Test Again

Posted by alifinmath on April 3, 2009

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Lawrence C. Washington’s Introduction to Cyclotomic Fields.

I am a carefully written exposition of a central area of number theory that can be used as a second course in algebraic number theory. Starting at an elementary level, I cover p-adic L-functions, class numbers, cyclotomic units, Fermat’s Last Theorem, and Iwasawa’s theory of Zp-extensions, leading the reader to an understanding of modern research literature. Many exercises are included.

Which Springer GTM would you be? The Springer GTM Test

    By the way, my boy is now using this book as he patiently makes his way ever deeper into the jungle of algebraic number theory.
