About this product
- DescriptionGalois theory is a mature mathematical subject of particular beauty. Any Galois theory book written wadays bears a great debt to Emil Artin's classic text Galois Theory, and this book is exception. While Artin's book pioneered an approach to Galois theory that relies heavily on linear algebra, this book's author takes the linear algebra emphasis even further. This special approach to the subject together with the clarity of its presentation, as well as the choice of topics covered, has made the first edition of this book a more than worthwhile addition to the literature on Galois Theory. The second edition, with a new chapter on transcendental extensions, will only further serve to make the book appreciated by and approachable to undergraduate and beginning graduate math majors.
- Author BiographySteven H. Weintraub is a Professor of Mathematics at Lehigh University and author of seven books. This book grew out of a graduate course he taught at Lehigh. He is also the author of Algebra: An Approach via Module Theory (with W. A. Adkins).
