. . . if one desires to make development in arithmetic one should still examine the masters now not the students. N. H. Abel Heeke used to be one of the masters, and actually, the learn of Heeke L sequence and Heeke operators has completely embedded his identify within the textile of quantity concept. it's a infrequent prevalence whilst a grasp writes a uncomplicated e-book, and Heeke's Lectures at the thought of Algebraic Numbers has develop into a vintage.
Kummer's paintings on cyclotomic fields cleared the path for the advance of algebraic quantity concept quite often by way of Dedekind, Weber, Hensel, Hilbert, Takagi, Artin and others. notwithstanding, the luck of this normal idea has tended to imprecise specific proof proved through Kummer approximately cyclotomic fields which lie deeper than the final thought.
