. . . if one desires to make growth in arithmetic one may still research the masters now not the scholars. N. H. Abel Heeke was once one in all the masters, and in reality, the learn of Heeke L sequence and Heeke operators has completely embedded his identify within the cloth of quantity idea. it's a infrequent prevalence whilst a grasp writes a simple ebook, and Heeke's Lectures at the thought of Algebraic Numbers has turn into a vintage.
Kummer's paintings on cyclotomic fields cleared the path for the improvement of algebraic quantity conception mostly via Dedekind, Weber, Hensel, Hilbert, Takagi, Artin and others. besides the fact that, the good fortune of this basic thought has tended to imprecise specified proof proved by way of Kummer approximately cyclotomic fields which lie deeper than the final concept.
