Gaal is also the author of two books: Classical Galois Theory With Examples (Markham Publishing, ; third ed., Chelsea Publishing, ; reprinted ) A Mathematical Gallery (American Mathematical Society, ) Early life and education. The book discusses classical Galois theory in considerable generality, treating fields of characteristic zero and of positive characteristic with consideration of both separable and inseparable extensions, but with a particular emphasis on algebraic extensions of the field of rational numbers.

Since , Galois Theory has been educating undergraduate students on Galois groups and classical Galois theory. In Galois Theory, Fourth Edition, mathematician and popular science author Ian Stewart updates this well-established textbook for today's algebra students. New to the Fourth EditionThe replacement of the topological proof of the fundame. Classical Galois theory is a subject generally acknowledged to be one of the most central and beautiful areas in pure mathematics. This text develops the subject systematically and from the beginning, requiring of the reader only basic facts about polynomials and /5(3).

Galois theory is a fascinating mixture of classical and modern mathematics, and in fact provided much of the seed from which abstract algebra has grown. It is a showpiece of mathematical unification and of "technology transfer" to a range of modern applications. Galois Theory, Second Edition is a revision of a well-established and popular text/5.

Classical Galois Theory deals, in essence, with the solutions to polynomial equations. Its applications are spectacular, including the algebraic result that some polynomial equations of degree >= 5 can't be solved in radicals, and the geometrical result that the cube can't be Cited by: A Classical Introduction to Galois Theory is an excellent resource for courses on abstract algebra at the upper-undergraduate level.

The book is also appealing to anyone interested in understanding the origins of Galois theory, why it was created, and how it has evolved into the discipline it is today. This book is strongly recommended to beginning graduate students who already have some background in abstract algebra, including elementary properties of groups, rings, and fields.

The exposition and proofs are intended to present Galois theory as simply as possible. This book develops Galois theory from a historical perspective. Throughout, the emphasis is on issues related to the solvability of polynomials by radicals. This gives the book a sense of purpose, and far from narrowing the scope, it provides a platform on which to develop much of the core curriculum of Galois theory.

It develops the theory generally before focusing specifically on finite extensions of $\mathbb{Q},$ which will be immediately useful to a student going on to study algebraic number theory. About this Textbook. This textbook offers a unique introduction to classical Galois theory through many concrete examples and exercises of varying difficulty (including computer-assisted exercises).

In addition to covering standard material, the book explores topics related to classical problems such as Galois’ theorem on solvable groups of polynomial equations of prime degrees, Nagell's proof of non. Classical Galois theory is a subject generally acknowledged to be one of the most central and beautiful areas in pure mathematics.

This text develops the subject systematically and from the beginning, requiring of the reader only basic facts about polynomials and a good knowledge of linear algebra.

Key topics and features of this book. A Classical Introduction To Galois Theory by Newman, Stephen C. "This book provides an introduction to Galois theory and focuses on one central theme - the solvability of polynomials by radicals.

In mathematics, Galois theory provides a connection between field theory and group theory. Using Galois theory, certain problems in field theory can be reduced to group theory, which is in some sense simpler and better understood. It has been used to solve classic problems including showing that two problems of antiquity cannot be solved as they were stated; showing that there is no quintic formula; and showing.

Galois theory is one of the most beautiful subjects in mathematics, but it is heard to appreciate this fact fully without seeing specific examples.

Numerous examples are therefore included throughout the text, in the hope that they will lead to a deeper understanding and genuine appreciation of the more abstract and advanced literature on Galois theory.
