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-solvability by radicals of quintic equations, Tschirnhausen's transformations, lunes of Hippocrates, and Galois' resolvents. Topics related to open conjectures are also discussed, including exercises related to the inverse Galois problem and cyclotomic fields. The author presents proofs of theorems, historical comments and useful references alongside the exercises, providing readers with a well-rounded introduction to the subject and a gateway to further reading.

A valuable reference and a rich source of exercises with sample solutions, this book will be useful to both students and lecturers. Its original concept makes it particularly suitable for self-study.

About the authors

Juliusz Brzeziński is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, which is a part of the University of Gothenburg and the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. His research concentrates on interactions between number theory, algebra and geometry of orders in algebras over global fields, in particular, in quaternion algebras. He is also interested in experimental number theory.
