This is a moment version of Lang's famous textbook. It covers the entire uncomplicated fabric of classical algebraic quantity idea, giving the coed the historical past valuable for the learn of additional themes in algebraic quantity concept, similar to cyclotomic fields, or modular forms.
"Lang's books are continually of serious price for the graduate pupil and the learn mathematician. This up to date variation of Algebraic quantity idea is not any exception."―-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS

. . . if one desires to make development in arithmetic one should still learn the masters no longer the students. N. H. Abel Heeke was once considered one of the masters, and actually, the examine of Heeke L sequence and Heeke operators has completely embedded his identify within the cloth of quantity concept. it's a infrequent incidence whilst a grasp writes a simple publication, and Heeke's Lectures at the concept of Algebraic Numbers has turn into a vintage.
Kummer's paintings on cyclotomic fields lead the way for the advance of algebraic quantity conception more often than not by means of Dedekind, Weber, Hensel, Hilbert, Takagi, Artin and others. in spite of the fact that, the good fortune of this basic thought has tended to vague specified evidence proved by way of Kummer approximately cyclotomic fields which lie deeper than the overall conception.
This well-developed, obtainable textual content information the old improvement of the topic all through. It additionally offers wide-ranging insurance of important effects with relatively trouble-free proofs, a few of them new. This moment version comprises new chapters that offer an entire evidence of the Mordel-Weil theorem for elliptic curves over the rational numbers and an outline of modern growth at the mathematics of elliptic curves.
Mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike have lengthy been excited about geometrical difficulties, quite those who are intuitive within the feel of being effortless to kingdom, might be using an easy diagram. each one part within the publication describes an issue or a gaggle of similar difficulties. frequently the issues are in a position to generalization of edition in lots of instructions.
